Excerpt: I use the Adventure 9 for short photo hikes of up to 3 total miles. The waist belt has insufficient padding for longer trips. I use the laptop compartment for carrying a raincoat or wind breaker as I have no need for a computer on the trail.
Pros: Adjustable Harness, Internal padding
Cons: Not Weatherproof, Thin waistbelt, Too snug for 17" laptop
