Vintage style and solid construction.
Inspired by the simplicity of vintage camping gear, Topo Designs sets out to bring back the quality-driven designs of the '50s and '60s with their line of quality outdoor gear. Their Daypack stays true to simple, vintage designs with a 1000D cordura fabric that will hold up to everything from day-long forays into the woods, cycle commutes into the office, and evening fly fishing sessions. The top zippered entry has an internal laptop sleeve for when you need to get some work done after your hike, and an organizer sleeve keep all your other tidbits organized whether you're headed to class, or going bird watching after work.

- Q & A
Bought this for an upcoming trip as a carry on for some camera gear among other things but sadly it will be going back.
I'm a rather tall person at 6'1'' but this hit at an awkward spot on my low back/upper hip and would become an annoyance after more than an hour.
The quality of the fabric is wonderful though, but the front leather patch was cut very poorly. Considering this is American made I would have expected more attention to detail as that's their whole thing.
Not enough pockets, not enough space and awkwardly tall.
Mind you, this would be a great bag for a lot of people but just sadly didn't fit the bill I was looking for.

- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Just picked one of these up in Black. Love the design and build quality. I now own a few things from Topo designs and look froward to picking up some more stuff from them. My one complaint is, if you have a laptop in the laptop sleeve, there is not much space for anything else within the internal organization pockets.
