- Q & A
sleek and minimalist
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I've tried Patagonia MLC, Tom Bihn, even the minaal bag. This one seems to be the most minimalist of all of the bags. It actually has hard foam to keep the shape. Once you open it up, you get a large open cabin space, so you can fit your clothes, shoes, etc. I'd use packing cubes though to keep everything organized. I"m used to using a roll-a-board 22" but this is great for something you can just strap to your back. I wish the shoulder straps were a bit more padded, but if your not lugging around super heavy items, you should be ok. The inside zip strap in the compartment is mostly useless. Maybe you can fit a tooth brush case in here + keys or something like that. maybe Money. The outside pocket is deep and easily accessible. No problem there. Inside pocket is also useful too for laptop or documents. Usually I'd carry my laptop in my backpack, and use this purely for my clothes/shoes. I initially thought the straps were on backwards, but they aren't the back with no logo is supposed to be on the outside. I'd say, backpack mode is good for over longer distances, otherwise, just use it as single shoulder bag. Handles are useful to put up into stow-away big and take out. I wish this bag had more separators? I also wish the compression straps inside were attached to the bottom instead of the top. Zippers seem to be sturdy. I haven't experienced any issue with them catching on the sides. This bag is 5L smaller than Patagonia MLC. Tom Bihn bag is nice, but also double the price here. MLC bag is little cheaper here. Only time will tell how long this bag will last, but should do quite nicely for next 3 years. If you can get a deal on this, it could work for you especially if you need a sleek bag and you are always in carry on mode.
I have the blue on which gives it a better contrast compared to all black one.
