"Organized. Protected."

Hard shell protection. Solid weather resistance. Hard shell protection. Solid weather resistance.

The Carry+ backpack from System G is a hard-shell/soft-shell bag with tons of organization and a really solid build quality throughout.

  • hard exterior keeps things protected from bumps, scrapes
  • rigid and padded back panel makes for comfortable carry
  • lots of organization with some better-than-it-needs-to-be materials inside
  • solid build quality throughout

Hard shell protection. Solid weather resistance.

A very sleek “mission impossible” kind of look. Perhaps too much so for my own personal missions.

But it’s actually made really well. You notice the quality in use.

Clamshell opening. Tons of organization.

The materials inside are actually quite nice. Don’t know how they did that for this affordable price.

Probably too much organization for my own good, but you org-heads will love it.

Clamshell opening means you can open the lid all the way to get complete visibility on what you’re packing.

Again, great materials inside. Feels great on the hand. Water sealed zips all around. Great build quality.

System G Carry+ Backpack Water bottle and small zip pocket on each side.

Water bottle and small zip pocket on each side.

These side zips are OK for stuff you want to put away for awhile. Not the kind of pocket you want to be getting in and out of frequently.

The water bottle pockets are made from a very nice performing mesh.

Build Quality:Sub-Par Satisfactory Excellent

Solid throughout.

Water Resistance:Sub-Par Satisfactory Excellent

YKK sealed zips, water resistant materials throughout.

External Access:Sub-Par Satisfactory Excellent

All the quick access pockets on the outside of the bag are slightly too small for me to really enjoy using them. Org-heads rejoice, tho.

Tons of pockets and pouches in this bag. Maybe too much?

Capacity:Sub-Par Satisfactory Excellent

Carry Comfort:Sub-Par Satisfactory Excellent

The rigid back panel and all the padding make it carry really nice, actually.
