A surprisingly solid backpack for both daily carry and travel. Organization, professional looks and an expand/collapse feature for travel conversion.
- lots of external access pockets on the front and sides of the bag
- solid straps and back padding for comfort
- expandability works great — no need to change bags for travel!
- clean look for business folks
- available in some fun colors and multiple sizes
The medium size is the one I prefer. On larger body sizes the Large will look more natural (and have more capacity).
It’s possible to wear this bag with a suit or something nicer for lots of people.
I like the black, personally. But they’ve got some other colors you should check out.
- Top quick access pocket,
- front dual zipper pocket,
- side hidden water bottle pocket,
- bottom “dopp kit” sized pocket,
- back laptop pocket,
- main compartment,
- expandable compartment.
Big air channels on the back to help you regulate temperatures.
Stowable contoured straps with an adjustable sternum strap.
Has a nice little separator inside here. Also some nice soft lining for sunglasses.
Some will have a hard time with the pattern and color of the inner liner material. I found the organization did everything I needed it to.
Perfect size for a minimal dopp kit, or some daily tech essentials.
Decent false bottom on the laptop compartment here for protection from drops. Lots of padding all around.
Decent capacity in these bags for everyday carry… not too big, not too small.
Lots of room to add a large packing cube and dopp kit in here.

Hiding the water bottle pocket behind a zip is nice (though it does cut into the capacity of the bag).

Capacity:Sub-Par Satisfactory Excellent
The expansion thing does work well on this bag. Can feel bulky when expanded, but you only need one bag!

Some won't like the looks of this bag. I personally find the all black medium to look fine enough for all the functionality it enables in my life.
