The Eagle Creek Scout looks perfect for city day tripping or for the traveller who doesn’t need to carry their life on their back. It looks perfect for carrying a camera (it’s padded), notebook, and a few gadgets and accessories. The side mesh pockets are great for your reusable water bottles and perhaps a small umbrella.
I think many people will like the ability to carry this on your waist, thereby freeing your shoulders and keeping you a bit cooler in the heat, but I always find that attaching anything to my waist causes my pants to fall down. Not the most pleasant experience in a crowd of people.
It comes in more than one color for those who think black is boring.
