I recently purchased a North Face Borealis backpack that I have been using successfully for onebag travel for a few weeks. I typically pack only 2 pair of shorts, 3 t-shirts, a pair of lounge pants for sleeping, a sweater, and toiletries, wallet, headphones etc. for up to 5 days of travel, with plenty of room to spare.

Nice functional backpack
Does what I need it for. Small enough not to be bulky and big enough for everything I need it to hold. Tons of useful compartments that make it easy to distribute the stuff evenly

I am in the market for a new backpack. I will be using it for everyday work (I move between sites, so have to carry a laptop and other bits and pieces, I also have to carry medication for myself and my dinner/waterbottle ). I will also be using it for travel when going away, so need something that could take a 3 to 4 days worth of clothes and toiletries. I currently have a North face borealis classic backpack, it's roughly 4 years old, and am finding it too small for day to day use with work.

Really nice bag, though pockets are kinda wonky
I bought this backpack about a month or so ago, after finally admitting that the beautiful leather bag I had was utterly impractical for my needs. A really nice young man helped me pick out this bag, and though I'm not crazy about the bungee cord on the outside, the gorgeous marigold/pumpkin ochre c...
