Shoppers rave about this backpack; in fact, it's currently the number one best-selling backpack on Amazon, with nearly 12,000 five-star reviews. "This backpack is lightweight and is perfect for taking my [family's] stuff with us on a hike, great for having a change of clothes for after the gym. My Chaco's fit in the wet bag so I don't have to worry about dirty shoes touching my clothes. The wet bag also works well for my wet bathing suit," one reviewer wrote.

Another shopper raved about using this backpack on a cruise vacation. "I bought this bag for a cruise to Alaska — day trips/excursions — and it delivered and then some! I couldn't believe how much this bag carries, without being huge and cumbersome. My family easily fit 4 sweatshirts plus phones, sunglasses, etc... inside it."
