    The Access Day Pack by High Sierra is one of the best Back Pack/Day Packs I have ever owned. It is VERY roomy and has plenty enough space to store just about anything. I frequently travel with 2 laptops a sizable 3 ring binder, several hand held radios and at least one camera. This means that I not only need a lot of space I need a bag that will support the weight of the gear. After 3 years of continual use only a few stitches are coming loose on the shoulder straps.

    The Access Day Pack, has been great! Although it is not waterproof, it comes with its own rain coat that covers the bag just in case you get caught in undesirable weather. I thought that was a cool feature!

    I also an not a big fan of pre-sized pockets and pouches as they never fit my stuff. However the pockets in this bag are really good size and can hold most cellphones or 2-way radios.

    The things I would change about the bag are:

    1) The top MP3 style pocket. It is big enough to hold your iPod but if you put much else in it you run out of room quickly.

    2) I would add another “water bottle” holder on the left side. These pockets are always useful and having a second one would only make this bag that much better.

    3) I would add a rubberized waterproof bottom to the bag. If you set it down in a wet area for very long the water will soak through.

    Hope this helps…

    I bought this backpack for my tour of Europe. I tour cities in bursts of 2-3 days so this pack has to hold my things for 2-3 days.

    Pros:

    1. It has many pockets for all kinds of gadgets or items you may have.

    2. The bottle holder is far better than in any previous backpack i have owned. It has a zipper to it so you can tighten the bottle agaist the pack to hold it down.

    3. It has a rain cover. I haven’t needed to use it yet but im sure that day will come.

    4. The laptop padding is good. I have had the pack tip over and fall on the floor. The laptop was protected each time.

    5. The pack has padding for your back as well. However, there is a con here that ill explain further down.

    6. The pack is spacious and wide enough for my dslr camera bag. This is a big plus for me.

    Cons:

    1. The padding for your shoulders and back has a tendency to cover air flow and makes you sweat. The pack is advertised to have good air flow but this is not true in my experience.

    2. The wait strap is excessive and unnecessary in my opinion. My pack is never heavy enough to need it.

    3. The pack is advertised to be able to hold upto 17in. laptops but i have serious doubts about that. My 15.4in widescreen laptop fits snugly and hangs out of the top of the covering a good bit. The dimensions of my laptop are the following: 14.25″ x 10.55″ x 1.54″

    Overall a very good pack, best i’ve had yet.

    I’ve reviewed this pack for the Black color High Sierra Access Backpack after borrowing it from a friend for travel. I’m a large guy so I had it packed to the hilt, with 2 laptops and the gear to support, some mags and books some gifts and other stuff and the zippers worked easily no stressing.

    When I returned I had about 1/3 what I took with me and it was compact like a day pack by pulling the reinforcement straps tight and its small again.

    I used the rain cover when I landed in Hono cause we walked in rain to our gate. Nothing got wet. In the hotel i had to dry out the cover before I let it get packed away.

    This pack is under advertised and under rated. Sellers I hope you like the photos, buyers I hope the photos answer any questions.

    This pack makes EVERYONE ask about it and this pack steered me away from a THE NORTHFACE pack cause of the size, straps, padding and application of so many tasks it covers.
