5.0 out of 5 stars One Great Bag!, December 29, 2006
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: High Sierra Access Backpack (Sports)
The Access Day Pack by High Sierra is one of the best Back Pack/Day Packs I have ever owned. It is VERY roomy and has plenty enough space to store just about anything. I frequently travel with 2 laptops a sizable 3 ring binder, several hand held radios and at least one camera. This means that I not only need a lot of space I need a bag that will support the weight of the gear. After 3 years of continual use only a few stitches are coming loose on the shoulder straps.

The Access Day Pack, has been great! Although it is not waterproof, it comes with its own rain coat that covers the bag just in case you get caught in undesirable weather. I thought that was a cool feature!

I also an not a big fan of pre-sized pockets and pouches as they never fit my stuff. However the pockets in this bag are really good size and can hold most cellphones or 2-way radios.

The things I would change about the bag are:

1) The top MP3 style pocket. It is big enough to hold your iPod but if you put much else in it you run out of room quickly.

2) I would add another "water bottle" holder on the left side. These pockets are always useful and having a second one would only make this bag that much better.

3) I would add a rubberized waterproof bottom to the bag. If you set it down in a wet area for very long the water will soak through.

Hope this helps...

Yeah, I miss having a 2nd water bottle holder. I use mine to hold a cell phone because it was not big enough to keep my somewhat tall bottle from tipping out.

If you keep the rain fly folded up in the bottom, i helps prevent water leaking in from the bottom as much

Check out the Outdoor Products Power Laptop Pack 2.0Outdoor Products Power Pack Daypack. Dual water bottle holders with zipper pouches behind that. It is my new favorite...

We originally purchased the Outdoor Products Power Pack Daypack because we loved the dual water bottle holders and zipper pouches. However, the main pockets were too small for our uses and we had to return the backpack. The High Sierra has much more capacity in the main pockets but is missing the 2nd side pocket. We ended up settling on the High Sierra. For us, capacity was more important than the 2nd side pocket. Not perfect--but it holds everything we need it to--unlike the Outdoor Products pack.

I , too, really wish the High Sierra came with a 2nd water bottle holder on the other side. Then it would be a perfect pack.

Is this backpack big enough to hold a laptop with a 17.5" screen (diagonal)? I've had trouble finding one that will..

One of the other reviewers recommends the Targus XL to hold a laptop of that size. He tried the High Sierra and it was not big enough.
