The North Face Heritage Daypack
The North Face Daypack Review | Pack Hacker
We found that if we had a packing cube, jacket, or other pouches in the main compartment that helped add structure against the bag’s front, the top pocket had no issues staying upright. It was when we just had a laptop inside that we got the problem with sagging. Since this is a daypack, there were many days where we indeed only needed to carry a laptop and a few small items in the top pocket, causing the dip to appear

Topo Designs Travel Bag 30L
Anyone else thinking about swapping the EDB30L for the Travel Backpack 30L?
I would say you should get the 30L travel backpack! I used the 30L EDB for my last semester in college but I was lucky because I never had to carry any books or papers with me but now that I have the 45L Travel backpack I probably would've used that more TBH.

Best Travel Packs: Topo Designs 30L Travel Bag Review
It was a little bit lower on the price range about 130 150 dollars, but I do feel that the build quality and the materials used on this bag or of higher quality, so that might help justify the higher price point. But with all that being said, that 30 liters topo travel bag is a fantastic option for anybody. Looking for a minimal travel bag that could possibly work as a daily bag and is gon na offer or really solid, build quality lots of great organization and just a really cool look in my opinion

The North Face Daypack Review (2 Weeks of Use)
Just take that packing cube out. I got a makeup bag in here. Notebook wallet and some facial spray, so there's quite a bit of space here in the main compartment but, as you can see like without without the main compartment like packed, very well, which, if you're just using this for edc you're, probably not going to have a packing Cube in there, this top part just kind of flaps over so i mean you can see right here, it's just kind of like sagging inward

Topo Designs Travel Bag 30L
Why are Peak Design straps so bad?
I’ve had their everyday backpack 20L and 30L, their travel backpack, the 5L and 10L sling bags and every single one of them were woefully under built in the strap department. They are okay if empty in the store but as soon as they have a load, they are a huge pain. As cool as their bags are, I wouldn’t ever consider them anymore.
