Great Backpack, I love it!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I really like this backpack, it has room for everything. I use it for backpacking, traveling, go to gym and even to go to work.
Great for School
I purchased this for college and so far it's holding up. I will continue to update.
Great bag, but small laptop sleeve
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Ordered this bag, but had to send it back. My 15inch work laptop (a dell) was too thick to fit in the sleeve. Seems like it may fit a 17 inch machine, but not one that's much thicker than a macbook.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I've used this backpack for over a month now and so far I have no complaints. It isn't as big as the previous versions so that is a huge plus. I take it to work and business trips and the quality of the bag is top notch. The usual every day carries such as a 16 inch laptop, Windows Surface, Cellphone, external hard drive, sunglasses, work documents and so on yet it doesn't feel heavy at all. You can never have enough pockets as it carries my 32 oz water bottle while the other pocket hides my keys. Highly recommended for those that commute and even for college students I would assume would love this pack.
Wanted to love it...
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Great quality bag with tons of pockets everywhere to stash stuff. I wanted to love this bag but it was really too BIG for my needs. One issue I did have was the straps would rub against my neck.
I'd like to have some informations:
-Do you ship even in Italy?
-How much does it cost and how long does it take?
-Does it fit for 17,3'' laptop?
Thank you in advance
My laptop is 16.5in x 12.5in x 1.7in. Will it fit in the laptop sleeve of this backpack? Can't seem to find the short answer. Thanks!
Could you take a picture of the Router asphalt grey color and post it here? I bought one from moose jaw and returned it because it appeared more green than grey, and just want to confirm the color before I order it. Thanks!
Looks like we don't have any of that color in stock right now... But we are expecting a bunch more in just a couple weeks!
When it is back in stock, live chat with a gearhead - they can request a picture from one of our Gear Gurus over at the warehouse and then email it to you.
In the meantime, here's a picture from TNF's site.
*Side note: Maybe you were shipped the wrong color? If you received the correct item, labeled "Asphalt Grey/TNF Black" (on the tags or whatever from TNF), then most likely their stock images are slightly off and the bag we get in stock would be the exact same.
Is this a water proof backpack? like some rain or snow?
Hey there, thanks for your question!
This backpack doesn't have any water resistant treatment, but if you got caught in some rain it would likely hold some resistance for a short amount of time.
I wouldn't recommend relying on it to keep valuables safe in a downpour though!
