Rated 5 out of 5 by Dakota4MAINE BEST BACKPACK
If you need a backpack that has it all this is it! Pockets? Got em! Lots of them. Water bottle pockets! Pen pockets! Laptop pocket? Got that one too! Even a pocket to put my Ipod and earbuds in. Straps across the chest area to keep it on you. VERY comfortably for all day treks or sightseeing. Plenty of room for an extra sweatshirt or jacket. I have tried a lot of these bags and I would buy this one hands down! LL Bean has done it again!

Rated 1 out of 5 by TJS7 Very Disappointing
I've been searching for a pack for some time. I've done a lot of research and am a regular LL Bean customer. LL Bean's reputation, quality and service are hallmark. So I ordered the Excursion Day Pack. I was not impressed. This is a "Made in Vietnam" bag, with less than adequate padding in the shoulder straps and no way to secure a water bottle in the side pocket. This is a low cost pack that does not deserve the LL Bean name or price tag afforded it. It is styled like a cheaper pack found in big box stores. I was very disappointed and sent it back. My search for a bag continues.

This is a nice, lightweight backpack suitable for a personal item in addition to an allowable airline carry-on...if you don't mind its price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Firebug Sleek, compact, full-featured pack
I've been looking for a minimalist daypack that I can travel with--and this is it. It doesn't have a bulky frame or myriad straps and loops to get caught on things or people (think woods, crags, buses), and packs down flat into a suitcase if you only need it at your destination. The discreet, well-placed zip access and clips will deter pickpockets, but you have quick access to documents, wallets, water. The 2-compartment interior with organizer pockets takes an amazing load of gear. Shoulder and waist strap ensure secure fit and comfort even if you're packing some weight. I bought basic, go-with-everything urban black, but this will do well also on the trail. Already tested on a trip to Boston (yay!), it'll go to Italy with me this summer.

This is an extremely versatile pack. Handy compartments, lite weight and enough space to carry a laptop comfortably. Would highly recommend for any commuter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bangorliz Love this pack!
This pack has lots of different size pockets and zippered compartments, making it very handy for any use.
The straps across the front holding the pack in place are great and very comfortable.
