Fantastic Backpack for Travel

I was looking for a backpack that had generous water bottle pockets on the outside of the bag and a laptop sleeve for a 17” laptop and this bag knocked it out of the park. It fits a 32 oz Nalgene bottle perfectly and my laptop fits without having to struggle with the bag. I use this bag for work travel and it’s very durable and a perfect size for flights.

Fantastic backpack with all of the features.

I have been using this backpack for daily work and travel (basically every single day) and have been loving the durability and construction. It is bit of a tall bag which is why I love it. All the perfect little pockets to organize things and love the straps and construction. Not sure if would make any changes, and if anything I would consider getting another as a back up for the future, which I may never end up needing with how well it's built.

Odd shape and wasted space

A well made pack with nice inside storage, but I think it's very oddly shaped. It seems very long (which makes it seem huge) and narrow, with a lot of wasted space at the top. Just not a great match for me. Really disappointed because I love Mountain Hardwear packs.

Great everyday carry

Nice organization and durable fabrics. I love the mesh back panel as well as the big water bottle pockets on the side.
