What we like

  • Tons of useful organizers and pockets with a large main compartment for clothing. Perfect for 7+ day trips.

  • Durable fabric and construction. Feels like it will hold up to common travel abuse.

  • Great for extra large laptops - can fit a laptop up to 19-inches.

What we don’t like

  • Chest and waist straps are actually pretty crappy. Chest strap has the tendency to come loose when in use while the waist strap is thin and provides very little support.

  • No TSA friendly laptop compartment.
