A very well designed, stylish travel bag for one-bag travel with enough pockets, organization and access to make travel smooth.
- Killer size — not too big, not too small. Fits plenty of stuff without being a behemoth to carry or travel with.
- Lots of external pockets and internal organization — lots of places to stash and access things while you travel, lots of organization for your tech items.
- Low key, minimal yet stylish look — black on black, technical, doesn’t say too much.
- Built solid — 1680D Cordura ballistic nylon, YKK zips.
