I've seen a lot of convertibles and this is a very straightforward design. In the best UL tradition, there are few extras: just the main body, a couple pockets and some shoulder straps. It isn't designed for actual backpacking, but more for getting from the hotel to the train station or airport. I would add a nice simple day pack for everyday use. I spent 3 weeks doing train travel in Europe with a bag very similar to this one and had plenty of room. It will hold your hammock nicely
