Great Daily Backpack

Love this pack for all my daily activities. Great for flying and great for outdoor especially with the waterproof upper. As a daily backpack its great, the flat bottoms means it sits on the floor nicely and the separate laptop compartment is so nice for my laptop. also the bag is comfortable even when loaded.

The best backpack in the world

I use this backpack for weekly travel and have done for 2 years. It is superbly designed and built with quality materials. I fly twice a week and use the bag for 3/4 days worth of clothes, x 2 laptops, toiletries, passports, work docs, gym gear (no trainers though) it’s a great size and can fit under the seat in front in the airplane (no carry on cost needed) The best thing is the passport zip pouch for quick easy access for passport control as well as the top zip for liquids and laptop section for laptops. It’s strong, durable and smart 10/10.

Great pack

I love the pack. It is the perfect travel pack. It loads surprisingly a lot. The only problem is my laptop is too big, but I love the size of the 22. If the laptop pocket was for 15" laptop, it would be perfect! Otherwise, love it!

I've been using this bag as a work-to-gym bag for about 5 years now. Great for keeping its shape and standing up on its own, even on the NYC subway. Had to repair the side laptop zipper but otherwise has held up great with daily use! Probably could take this outside to the crag but would be a bit on the heavy side for my size.

Very Good, could have been great

The bag is solidly constructed- I’ve been using it for years. A couple nit-picks stopped me from giving it a ten: No exterior side pockets for flask, bottle, shoes etc. The zippers for the top compartment and main compartment are stacked in such a way that they kind of merge in low light. They also hook on the handle. Maybe color them differently and use different handles? The top compartment has a tendency to spill. There’s no reason it needs to completely fold over, given its purpose. The laptop and “wallet” zippered compartments are awesome. There’s space for a vertical zippered compartment on the front. The fabric on the shoulder straps frays a little. The fabric of the body of the bag has been bomb-proof. Love that it stands up when you set it down.

Great bag! I love the bag part, but a couple things I don't like: - the "self standing" thing isn't very legit unless the bag is pretty much full - straps could be a little more robust - laptop section doesn't ~quite ~ fit my 15" laptop Other than that I love it! It's durable and basically waterproof and I like the way the zippers are. The straps are nice if I'm feeling like going to do something more extreme than go to class

My daily commuter

I generally give really good scores because I am super selective and do too much analysis before I buy With that said I love this as my daily laptop and go to bag. It is water repellent and big enough to carry 3 days work cloths, a travel CPAP laptop and toiletries. It is a tight fit and I have to be creative but it is perfect as I travel across the Mexico border for work and I don’t like to hand carry luggage. The only hiccup for me is the length of the top zipper is long and it hangs up on the grab strap which could potentially be a wear spot but knowing this I’m careful not to force it. I am an advisor outdoorsman and use a ton of black diamond gear from climbing to hunting. This was a home run for them as a business commuter

Great for flying

Love this pack for flying. It holds enough for a weekend trip. I can take my laptop out without opening the main compartment helping you avoid spilling my stuff all over the floor. Very durable.

My brother has this bag. The stuff ring on the bottom makes it easy to stand up and makes the bottom super durable. Also cool just cause it makes it like a haul bag.
