Great pack!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I've used it as a commuter bag and it is comfortable and has kept everything dry so far. Roomy main interior pocket. The mesh outer pocket is convenient for items you need in a hurry. Highly recommended!

Sweet for rainy season

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Had this pack in insane downpours in Costa, and my stuff stayed dry. Really like this bag for that, but it could use some internal organization and a waist strap- there's only a sternum strap. Other than that its super rad!

So far so good...

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Only had it for about 3 weeks. Haven't used it in a full down pour yet but it's kept my gear dry in the rain that it has seen. It could use at least one internal pocket but that's not a deal breaker. Happy with my selection.

Would this bag be useful for kayaking at all? Essentially if I were to roll into the river briefly would my items get wet?

is this bag big enough for a laptop? And maybe surgical loupes and a camera for Seattle weather?

2105 cu in puts this bag at about 35 L. That's a pretty decent size bag for carrying quite a bit of stuff. Dimensions on this pack are about 20.5 x 7 x 16. I would think you would be able to fit the things you mentioned fairly easily. That being said, this bag does not have a Laptop specific pocket so some sort of protective sleeve would probably be a good call. Also, if by camera you mean something more than a little point and shoot, you'd be smart to measure out your equipment and see how it compares with the dimensions of the bag and remember again, this bag isn't organized to have pockets specific for your camera etc.

What is the lifespan of the PU coating? I'm assuming that is what enables this bag to be "waterproof" versus a nylon coating in other packs.

Why does the external mesh pocket have a waterproof zipper?

If any stitch is not waterproof, then the bag itself will not be 'waterproof' as water will be able to enter the bag. Though the zipper is for an outside pocket, it is still stitched to the bag itself creating a possible entryway for water. Hope that helps.
