StraightJacket compression straps with padded sidewalls to help protect your bag's contents and allow you to fit more gear or compress the bag to a smaller size when it isn't fully stuffed.
STOWAWAY HARNESS AND HIPBELT
The Porter harness and hipbelt deploy at a moment's notice for backpack style carry and quickly disappear into the backpanel for safe keeping when your bags are checked.
ORGANIZED AND ACCESSIBLE
Structural sidewalls hold your bag open, making it easy to pack and unload, especially with the massive U-zip opening. Dedicated, easily accessible pockets provide on-the-go access to key items. Traveling is about experience and memories, and you'll have more time for both when you spend less time packing.

My only cons are that there are:
1) No exterior stash pockets for a water bottle so, if you travel with an insulated mug or a nalgene type bottle, you either have to clip it to the outside or stick it in the pack, taking up valuable interior storage.
2) The waist belt is not removable and the shoulder straps clip to the belt, rather than the pack itself. If you do not want to use the belt, you have to clip the shoulder straps in, then feed the belt through its stowaway pocket and secure it in there with the buckle. I wish there was a more simple option as not everyone needs/uses belts on smaller or lighter bags.
