do you think that is a good bag or should I find something that's built more specifically for backpackers? I'm very limited by price, I know I should buy a really good backpack but I have no job and very little money at the moment.

Additionally if anyone's interested: until the 31st on ebags.com they have a special on eagle creek Cube Set - $24 for 3 of them, usually it's about $15 for just one. Since I'm poor right now I'm thinking of picking up the cube set and waiting for to get money before I order the backpack. I think this is a good product to get?

I don't know whether it's a good bag or not, but i would strongly recomend not buying a bag online unless you've had chance to see it and try it on first (try the same model in a shop and buy online if you want). Also, whetehr it's a good enough bag probably depends what yuour doing with it - i.e. just carrying stuff between hostels/on trains/planes etc, or actually hiking large distances with it?

Can really sympathise about keeping it cheap though...
