Product Review (submitted on March 6, 2011):
I've had my waxed Rambler for about 7 years and am still in love. I use it for business and pleasure, air travel and camping, in winter and summer. Most recently it went with me to New Zealand (along with a Duluth Pack Rucksack) where it was a total champ. That it can be pressed into service as a carry-o bag in this day and age of luggage surcharges is a clear advantage. I have even put it under my plane seat . I'm 5'2", and I find that it fits a short person well--I can even put my short shoes in the side pockets. Its dimensions work perfectly with packing cubes, and when well packed, it holds enough for a week's worth of clothes and personal belongings even in colder weather. After many years now, nothing has even come close to failing and it gets better looking each season. I agree that lash points would be nice, but that said, I find most bulky things can be rolled up blanket-style under the top flap.
