The zippers and straps are extremely well made, and the stitching is very high quality.

While I looked at it as a bag I can go hiking with, I primarily want to use it as an everyday carry (EDC) bag to and from work.

This bag is so well constructed that I really forget about trying to baby it. It's stitching and molle system is just awesome. I typically carry on any given day as part of my EDC:

Maxpedition Triad Admin Puch (See my review for that)
Klean Kanteen w/sleeve
Macbook Pro 13-inch
Droid X
Adventure Medical Kits Ultralight and Watertight First Aid (Custom)
Olive Green Shemagh
Paclite Goretex Shell
Frontier Pro Water Filter
Platypus 3l Collapsable
Platypus 100 oz Hydration System
Smith Pocket Knife Sharpener
RAT 3 Fixed Blade

That is just a light carry...weighing in around 10pounds or so...If I really cram it in there I can hold SOOOO much more and then some. The great thing about this bag is its small size, it is very un-assuming and can easily be carried without allot of fatigue. The harness system and yolk around your neck is probably one of the most comfortable systems I have ever used and I am a total gear and bag junkie so that is saying allot.

I just got the 5.11 Bail Out Bag and will be switching the Rush twelve to my primary Day Hike and Bug Out Bag using the the new bag as my EDC (I carry to much crazy stuff to work)...I will leave the Rush twelve safely in my car for use if the SHTF. I have had allot of bags and this is up there with one of the best I have ever owned.

Years ago I switched from using a brief case to a back pack for daily use at work. I'm out and about quite a bit visiting clients and like to have my hands free. This is the first time I have found a back pack that is close to perfect.

This bag is not to big and fantastically organized so that everything has a home and I still have a large main compartment for my computer (12" screen when not plugged into a dock), journal and paperwork. In particular I love the mesh pockets inside the main compartment which really help to keep stuff organized and out of the way and the admin pocket. The workmanship and materials are also top notch, so I expect that I will be using it for years to come.

A couple of tips / ideas that I have which may be of interest are as follows:
- I keep a light gortex jacket tucked away in the hydration pocket. It provides additional padding for my back and is out of the way and readily available in case of rain.
- This pack is not designed as a computer bag. Therefore, I have incorporated a neoprene computer sleeve to protect my computer in the main compartment. I've also placed a wide Sam Splint (which fits perfectly)on the bottom of the main compartment for added protection when setting the computer down. The Sam Splint also acts to keep the computer off the bottom of the bag and thus dry in case its put down on something wet or something spills.
- for quick access pens fit perfectly in the molle webbing on the outside of the admin pocket
- I've added a mini screw carabiner to the molle webbing above to admin pocket so that I can attach the cord pull from the top pocket to it. This insures that the top pocket cannot open accidentally or to easily.

I was looking for a small bag to carry a laptop, an extra layer, a few tools, admin stuff, snacks and this is it. I didn't want a hip belt, and this doesn't have one - tho it does provide hardware to fashion one out of 1.5" webbing if wanted.

Main compartment is big enough for my 13" Macbook Pro, an extra layer or two, files, books ... It has a couple of mesh pouches that help organize your stuff. I have chargers in one, and a hat and gloves in the other.

The front compartment has plenty of room and compartmentation to stow tools, admin stuff, snacks, meds... and a zippered compartment big enough for folded papers, cards, cash ... Two straps with clips hold keys or small tools. Lots of nice touches.

Outstanding combo of molle and velcro panels on the outside to attach stuff. I have a Condor EMT Pouch on one side, a 5.11 H2O Carrier on the other, and a suave MilSpec Monkey patch on the velcro panel.

The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is because the back panel, which opens up for easy access to a hydration bladder, doesn't have either velcro, nor molle panels to allow utilization of this space in the absence of a bladder. It would be pretty close to perfect for tools, or for concealed carry if it was so equipped ...

But workmanship is outstanding. It is a small bag, but it's nearly perfect for my requirements for an every day carry pack. See my pictures above for more details.

This insures that the top pocket cannot open accidentally or to easily. You could do the same thing with the admin pocket but one semi secure pocket is fine for my use.
- finally I've added a maxpedition mini rollypolly (which fits up to a one quart nalgene bottle) to the side to carry water bottles etc. as required.

I'm very happy with this pack for my every day use and would recommend to a friend.
