An extremely solid everyday backpack suited for carrying lots of gear or compressing down to a minimal daily carry haul. One of my favorite all-around bags.
- Nice feeling materials — the bag feels great in your hands/on your back without needing to be fancy.
- Lots of organization — 3 separate compartments, each with distinct organization inside.
- Expandability — the bag is a great size for daily carry, is compressible when you don’t have to carry much, but it’s quite roomy when you need it to be! (Bag comes in 2 sizes, I believe I’m using the Large size in this video.)
- Very comfortable — I was surprised by how nice these straps feel on your shoulders.
