The material is durable and solid, which would be perfect for outdoor use. Also, the volume is large enough to hold all necessary items for a week of outdoor adventures.
It's a great backpack I use everyday for commuting. I load it up with books, papers and often a ream of copy paper. The straps and padding make it comfortable to carry all day. I will use it in the summer for day hikes, too.
Absolutely loved this backpack. I bought it to take to Ireland and Scotland on vacation. It was the perfect size and worked well for an airplane carry on. Can fit a ton of stuff....I use now for weekend trips for all my clothes and such!
I bought this with the intention of school use, but it would definitely work perfect for hiking or travel too. In the past I would always choose my bags based on style, but now I look more for comfort and want what's good for my back. Definetely recommend!!
