Let’s start with the negative points. The splitpack is meant as a backpack. Due to is size and weight (when fully packed), it takes a bit longer to lift the splitpack on your back. This makes it inconvenient, if you only need carry it for a few meters. It would be nice, if the shoulder bands could be adapted to carry the backpack as a handbag. In a small hotel room, the bag still takes a lot of space, since it has the 2-side feature of a suit case. The positive points: The backpack is surprisingly comfortable to carry, when fully loaded. The small pockets and the two separate main compartments really help organizing the language. The material is sturdy. The size is handy to take along. It is a bag I would buy again.
