Polyester is hydrophobic, which is good for you when you are out for a long excursion. The fabric will repel most water, but what does fall through the cracks and soaks the material will dry quickly. This bag hates being wet just about as much as you do.
One of the downsides to wearing a polyester bag is that it can stick to you and cause a little irritation and discomfort. If you are heading out on warm days or working up a sweat, it will start to stick to you. If your skin is exposed, then you will risk the materials sticking to your skin, causing discomfort along the way. This isn't an issue that all consumers experience, but it is worth noting.
If you are heading out for a short trip by yourself, then the 10-liter option will most likely be perfect for you. You can carry around an adequate amount of fluid to keep you hydrated on your excursions without the extra weight to slow you down. On the other hand, if you want to go for a long trip or you're traveling with a group of people, you can carry the 20 or 30-liter options. This will ensure that you have enough accessible water for the long haul.
One thing that you need to keep in mind, something that some consumers are not aware of is that this does not actually come with a water bladder. The bag is, however, compatible with them. There is a dedicated pocket that can store your hydration bladder in either 10-, 20-, or 30-liters. It will allow you to keep your water close and easily accessible.
There are a plethora of internal slots and pouches to store all of your goodies. You can toss in your snacks, tools, first aid gear, keys, ID, cash, portable phone charger, and more. The external zippered pocket gives you a larger space to store things that might be a little bigger for the small pockets. If you want to carry an extra set of clothes or a small blanket for a picnic, then you are good to go.
In addition to the pockets on the main part of the bag, you will also find some handy little compartments on the hip belt. These small compartments can keep the little things you want to have within arms reach, whether snacks or your cell phone.
In total, you will have access to two hip belt pockets, one zippered front pocket, 1 top pocket, and two side stretch pouches — lots of room for everything that you need.
A small little bonus that you can take advantage of as well is the fact that it comes with a place to store a trekking pole if you need to.
Unfortunately, the Salomon Trailblazer bag doesn't offer a whole lot of ventilation. This is mainly due to the fact that it's made out of polyester, but that's normal for this type of product. Essentially, you are sacrificing breathability for a more durable product. That is a trade-off that most customers are okay with, as they don't want to see their bags fall apart right after they buy it.
Since there isn't a lot of ventilation in this bag, customers have stated that they tend to sweat a little bit more than usual, especially on their back. This can cause some irritation and discomfort due to the fact that you're sweating more.

This isn't a problem that a lot of consumers have, as they're generally covered up on their back wall they're heading out on adventures, but it is something worth noting.
Overall, the lack of breathability in this bag is in a huge deal and doesn't turn many customers away.
