This might be a little weird to admit, but I really like "Things that hold things," Cases, boxes, bags, backpacks, etc. I am very happy to say that this might be my favorite day backpack that I have ever owned. It is impeccably well designed. It is good looking yet subtle, and you can tell that someone (or a group of people) really put effort in to thinking about how people would use the bag.
I've been lusting after this bag for a while now. Ever since I purchased my eBags Mother Lode Mini 21" Suitcase. I really dig that suitcase, and this backpack sat in my wish list for months. I finally purchased it on sale on prime day, but after having it for a couple weeks I realize that I should have just purchased it when I wanted it. This thing great.
This is a list of most of the things that I like about this bag:
- The overall design aesthetic. It's not flashy, but looks good. It could very easily be something carried by a professional or by a student. I do travel a lot. In my line of work, I don't need to dress in a suit and tie every day, but this bag looks right with that too. I also really like that the inside of the bag is orange. I cant really explain it, but lots of the stuff that I own, bags, computer cases, electronics, etc, are completely black and like it that way. Having the inside of this bag be orange feels slightly "Rebellious". I've actually had people comment about it.
- The many different storage pockets. They vary in shapes, sizes, construction, and location on either the inside or outside of the bag. I seriously feel that I can do anything with these pockets. Everything that has a pocket needs one.
- The little bottom cubby/compartment. This thing... I thought it would be the gimmick of the bag when I ordered it, but man is it great. I use it to store all or most of the wires I take with me. It varies, but I've loaded up this cubby with a 45w Macbook charger, an 85w macbook charger, a phone charger, a tablet charger, and a couple other USB cables. It's awesome that I can remove the hard case and have all my cables in one container. If I need more space in the physical bag, the hard case can be removed and it's "cavity" just disappears. How cool is that?
- How much room there is. My previous go to bag was almost 1800 cubic inches, huge, and most of that was just one large cavity, like a small hiking bag. I could live out of that bag for 5 days easy if I really had to. I was worried that with this bag I would struggle to adjust to the smaller bag. So far, though, this hasn't been a problem. I use this bag for two purposes. Just regular days in my city, and travel. For a regular day, I have my 11" Macbook Air plus a graphed legal pad in the back pocket. A lunch in my eBags Slim lunch box in the main compartment, plus gym clothes. In the front pocket I have a power bank, a computer mouse, pens, a USB hub, and more. In the front pocket with the vertical zipper I keep a micro toiletry kit. When I travel fully loaded, I carry my 11" Macbook air, my 15" Macbook Pro retina, my 9.7" iPad, all of the chargers for those things, plus the same legal pad, at least one change of clothes in the backpack, a portable speaker, plus all the small stuff that I carry in the city too. This bag handles all of that no problem. Impressive.
- The water bottle holder is not large enough to fit my 40oz hydroflask, but that is fine because I never carry that in a bag anyway, and it is too big for all but hiking backpacks. That is okay, though, because that pocket is perfect for my sunglasses case and a small thing of hand sanitizer.
- I love that the backpack straps can be tucked away and the bag can be carried like a briefcase with a handle on the side. Sometimes I don't want a backpack, and this solves that problem.
- Similarly, I love how all the straps, pockets, and features can be stashed away and hidden to keep them from flapping around and getting in the way. Don't need the water bottle pouch? Zip it up and it's gone. Don't want straps? they have a spot to tuck in to. The two grab handles (one on top and one on the side) recess flat against the sides of the bag when not in use. No faffing around with annoying straps while you're running through the airport trying to catch a flight.
- This bag just feels *solid.* I really try not to beat hard on my stuff, but I do use it constantly. After two years of front line service, my previous bag (a Griffith Park Deluxe) was starting to show some serious wear. I've had this bag for only about a month at this point, and it's been to three countries, eight states, and traveled 18000 miles. From how tough this bag feels I feel confident that it will last me at least as leg as the old bag, probably much longer.
For now, those are the thoughts I have about the bag. Right now I don't have anything bad to say. I've only had it for a month, so I will most definitely be updating this review more.
First edit, 9/8/16: Yesterday I was caught in an unexpected torrential downpour. It took me a long time to get somewhere where I could really take cover, as I was walking home through a residential area with no stores or building that I could go in to get out of the rain. I was in a torrential downpour for nearly 10 minutes. When I did get home, I was soaked to the bone. It was a really serious storm, at the worst you could not see 25 feet ahead through the rain, and road drains were overflowing for hours afterwards. After changing in to dry clothes, I walked over to the bag fearing that everything inside would be dripping wet. My laptop, My iPad, my pilot logbook, lots of valuable stuff. Imagine my surprise when I opened up this bag to discover that there was no wetness in the inside of this bag that I could detect at all. Even around the zippers, the only damp part was the little bits of grey fabric trim that go underneath the zipper tracks, and they were just barely damp around the top. I totally emptied the backpack and felt around. No wetness anywhere. On the outside, the exterior fabric had already mostly dried, the only thing that was still wet after 20 minutes was the back padding on the outside, but this dried after an hour of sitting in front of a fan.
I am super impressed. eBags does not mention anywhere that this bag is waterproof or water resistant anywhere on amazon or on their website. I knew that before getting this bag and before getting caught in the storm, and thought I was out of luck in regards to the electronics in my bag, but the fact that this bag handled the torrential rain so well is a testament to how much this thing rocks. No complaints so far.
Second Update: September 7th, 2017: I've been using this bag every day for more than one year now. I still am as much in love with it as I was when I initially wrote this review. This is the longest period of time that I have ever used one bag as my every day bag. I have been rough with this bag for a whole year, and The bag is still in brand new condition except for the bite marks one of the adjustment straps that my dog got to, which is no fault of the bag. I still highly recommend this bag.
It has very useful compartments - the laptop compartment, tablet compartment and accessories all made a lot of sense. I have a Surface Pro 4 and an Lenovo Thinkpad T460s. It can handle both and made everything very organized for me. I was looking for a cost effective bag that is compact, a backpack, but can still look professional when I go to clients due to my line of work. This WAS the perfect bag - it's L-zips made it also taking laptops and SP4 at airport security checkpoints a breeze.
So why the 1 star?
I read a couple of reviews before purchasing that areas in the bag easily got frayed. And now, unforfunately, with only just light use for less than 6 months - the left shoulder strap is frayed and almost about to fall off. I have no idea how it started fraying, but I certainly used the bag just for light travel in the subway, once a month for travel. I also work from home at least once a week, so I don't use this everyday. So I am very disappointed that something relatively priced would be broken in 6 months. Yes, this isn't a Tumi, and I had considered buying a Tumi over this, but it's also not a very cheap bag either. Photos attached.
Nevertheless, the bag was still in fantastic condition and technically usable. As such, when Amazon suggested this product to me, I was more torn than most people on whether it would be a worthwhile purchase – especially considering the rather steep price. Although I have used it for only a week now, I have to say that I feel like it was an excellent investment.
- Excellent build quality
- Thoughtful design
- Sleek appearance
The first thing I noticed when I saw the backpack was how sturdy it looked. Unlike most backpacks, this one will stand up on its own rather than slump over when placed on the ground. This is due to the hard plastic case at the bottom of the bag – accessible from its front – where one can store a laptop’s power brick separately from everything else. The zipper quality was similarly impressive. When doing and undoing the zipper, it has a solid, deep sound that one can be assured will never tear or open accidentally as you walk down the street. The material feels robust and resistant to tears or scuffs. The backpack also has a Teflon coat, which makes it fine for brief walks through light rain.
As I opened the various compartments, I also appreciated the bag’s design. The laptop and document compartments use L-shaped zippers that go from the top and zip all the way down to the bottom of the right side. This makes putting in and removing laptops, papers, and whatnot much easier. I no longer have to worry about scraping the cover of my laptop against a metal zipper or accidentally crumpling documents. If I need extra space to do so, I can just spread the section a little more. The tablet compartment is also an excellent addition, just big enough to hold comfortably my Surface 2 tablet. I am pleased that they did not limit this pocket to hold just iPads. The laptop pocket comes with removable padding at the bottom to protect the bag from modest drops. I feel like it could hold a 17-inch laptop without problems, though I have not tried this.
There was no neglect of the front pockets. The main front pocket has spaces for all my pens, pencils, and highlighters as well as smaller netted pockets for the other things I usually use like gum, a calculator, and cough drops. The frontmost pocket is great for holding thin documents, such as passports or tickets. The bottommost compartment has a hard plastic shell that is meant for power bricks or other more delicate, if somewhat small, electronics that need extra care like computer mice. There is also a side pocket for beverages, which can be zipped up when not in use, but I will comment on that later.
I also appreciate the bright orange material used to line the interior pockets. The contrast with the black makes it easy to find what one needs, especially in low light and with small objects like flash drives. It is a subtle feature, but I never realized how much time I spent looking for my flash drive in my old backpack with a black interior until I pulled it out of this bag with barely a glance. The bag also has slits on the back behind the padding to allow it to slide down the handle of a suitcase. This is excellent if you are traveling on a plane, though I doubt that I will use this particular feature at all.
As a side note, I typically use the document pocket – with the hard case as its base – to hold a large metal thermos of coffee and my small lunch. It does so comfortably and with minimal crushing of my food, which was a big annoyance with my previous backpack. That should also give you a sense of how large it can be if you need it to hold textbooks or an armful of folders.
Though I generally prefer function to form, the bag’s design is sleek. It feels like something that belongs in an office; it would not look out of place next to a briefcase at a meeting. The branding is minimal and subtle, with no dramatic coloring to attract attention to the manufacturer. The bag can grow to be about as big as you need it to be, but it can also be surprisingly slim. You probably will still feel the jostling of others on a crowded subway car, but it will fit comfortably on your lap if you manage to find a seat. When you need to make your way to the subway doors to get off, you can throw it on your shoulder or use one of the straps on the bag’s top or side to hold it in your hand and make a beeline.
- Beverage holder could be improved
One thing that disappoints me is the lone side pocket. It zips away when not in use to make the bag more streamline, but I feel like it was a somewhat neglected feature. The netting and elastic is adequate for a can of soda or typical-sized bottle of water, but I would have hesitations about putting anything taller or heavier in there. Personally, I always use the side pocket to hold an umbrella. It puts the umbrella within easy reach and keeps it away from everything else when it gets wet. However, the size of the pocket makes me concerned about my umbrella falling out. If the pocket were just a bit taller, I would have no problem keeping my umbrella in there. As it is now, though, I guess I will have to keep it somewhere else. Someone else’s experience with this pocket may differ.
I know it is impossible to have a backpack that is both sturdy and light as a dust mote, but I think weight is something people should keep in mind. Although the backpack straps are well made and distribute the bag’s weight effectively, the bag definitely has a certain degree of heft even when somewhat empty. Adding a laptop and the usual accessories is bearable, but I would be somewhat wary of loading it up with everything in and on your office desk and then walking across town.
A bag of this quality – and at this price – is definitely an investment one should make only if the bag will be often used or hold especially delicate or expensive electronics. I think it might be overkill for the rare meeting a few blocks away or for the K-12 student who carries little more than loose-leaf paper and pencils. Even I feel like the bag is a little on the pricey side, despite almost daily need for a backpack. Still, I do not quite think that this is something that should count against the product. It is great - for the right audience.
Overall, I would recommend the bag to anyone who wants a sturdy, thoughtfully designed, and aesthetically pleasing backpack to carry things safely and conveniently in an office or college setting. I am sure that this bag will see even more use than my previous backpack from Case Logic and last just as long. I will update my review if anything changes or if I can think of any other comments.
UPDATE – 6/24/15
I took this bag with me on a trip to Hawaii from the East Coast. It carried my laptop, Surface 2, computer and phone chargers, and a wireless mouse without any problems. I moved through security like a breeze thanks to the generous pockets and never once felt concerned about damaging my electronics. I am somewhat disappointed that the paint on the zipper pulls chipped while keeping it under the seat, but this is a minor complaint.
A few days ago, I also walked through a ferocious downpour on my way home. I thought my umbrella kept most of it away, but it turned out that the outermost portion of the bag was unprotected. I assumed that it had completely soaked through the pockets, but the bag actually kept most of it away. It was damp, sure, but otherwise fine. I think I might give the bag a coating of Scotchgard just to be safe, but this bag can handle more than a light sprinkle.
UPDATE – 10/28/15
I recently upgraded my Surface 2 to the Surface Pro 4 and it no longer fits in the tablet pocket. I have to keep it in the laptop compartment, but it does not change my opinion of the bag. I just wanted to give readers some perspective as to how big of a tablet or notebook they could keep in the tablet compartment. Bag is still holding up well!
UPDATE - 6/3/17
I am happy to report that I am still using the bag and it is holding up very well. No scuffs, tears, or loose seams!
UPDATE - 12/1/19
The bag continues to be in good shape, but is showing some slight signs of wear. A few of the seams are beginning to fray ever so slightly, but this is a cosmetic issue.
Top reviews from other countries
I’m delighted to report that after years of searching I have found the perfect EDC bag for me.
This short review is based on around 5 months of use rather than first impressions.
Firstly this is not one of these cavernous backpacks much loved by millennials which can hold the total physical contents of their minimalist lifestyle and fit in the overhead locker of the plane they are travelling to the next impossibly beautiful destination in.
It is instead a well laid out work horse of a bag where I store the necessities of my professional life.
I live and work in the UK but rather than travel to one office I work from a handful of locations travelling mainly on trains and planes.
The eBag allows me to store everything I need in one place so I never have to worry about having forgotten some crucial item. My days of leaving my work ID/keycard in another coat are behind me!
It has plenty zipped internal pouches, pen loops, slots, etc to exceed my needs. However this fixed storage and padding does come at the price of making the bag less cavernous as I eluded to before.
This for me was not an issue as I do no want an overstuffed day bag that is heavy and I cannot find anything in.
This is the first bag I have owned with the L opening configuration. I was unsure how well this would work in the beginning, but can report I have experienced no issues with it in daily use.
My personal response to criticism seen elsewhere;
- The zippers are all bunched together when closed making it difficult to open the one you want easily.
- Yes they are quite bunched up. That said I can be intolerant and predisposed to launching things that annoy me across the room and this has never really been an issue.
- Lack of adequate weather proofing
- I think this boils down to use and expectation. I live in Scotland where we get our fair share of rain, but I wouldn’t consider this bag for hiking in all weathers. I’ve been caught out with a couple of heavy showers for short periods with no issues and even on days where I am out in rain longer and using my umbrella the bag has been wet with not noticeable leakage into the inner compartments. I would suggest if you walk for miles in the rain to get to your office, you could but one of those backpack rain covers?
- Too much padding/lack of capacity
- Generally you can only have one or the other so make your choice. That said, I can easily carry everything I need for a normal day in the office as well as room for a change of clothes for an overnight business trip (I pack light so we are talking a clean shirt, underwear and toiletries. I have a larger bag for any more than one night or if I will be socialising and need different clothes)
I have attached a photo to show what I carry in it most days
The obvious features like the organiser front panel and separate tablet slot are great and work just as well as you'd expect - these are quite well described and demonstrated by the company. Tip for people travelling in the UK: the "business card" pockets in the front panel are exactly the right size for train tickets.
I find the bottom hardcase doesn't fit absolutely perfectly and I don't really understand why you need a hard case to keep a laptop charger in, but it's useful space for storing things like sunglasses instead. And it's removable if you don't need it, making more space in the front main compartment. I fit a travel washbag and two sets of clothes in there no problem.
The water bottle pocket on the side is good - if you fully unzip it you can get quite a wide bottle in there. I was surprised to read a few reviews that said they couldn't fit their water bottle in there... they must be huge bottles.
All of the various handles are rugged and easy to grab, and the material has easily coped with a few rain showers.
All-in-all this is a great bag at a reasonable price. Recommended without hesitation.
I spent a ridiculous amount of time looking for a good bag and this really is it. It’s perfect as a ‘business day bag’ - looks good in black; straps can be tucked away; laptop seems well protected; and there’s a really nice set of small organising pockets in the front plus specific sections for tablet, notes, charger etc.
Personally I ditched the hard case insert for day-to-day use and have a uk/eu/us plug converter and laptop power supply in the bottom section (great to get out fast without embarrassing myself with all my tat flying out); likewise I have my headphones in the flocked tablet pocket so I always know where they are and they don’t get scratched.
The only downside is that it is slightly too small for a comfortable overnighter. I found I can get 2 shirts and undercrackers in the bag if I use one of the compression bags I bought, so just about ok but not perfect. I like adding a compression bag as well because again it means stuff doesn’t fly everywhere if you need to get into a section quickly. You cannot, however, fit anything extra for a gym visit: shoes etc ain’t gonna fit. It’s the price you pay for a slim, professional-looking bag- and it’s really designed to accompany a small suitcase for that kind of trip.
All in all, no regrets buying this bag, although I am contemplating a larger one for some mid-length trips.
It's an ideal size for work. Fits a big 15" laptop, another smaller laptop , A4 notebook etc in the back pocket, and similar ish space in the next main pocket.
Tablet pocket between the two is good.
Front bit that opens has lots of great varied sized storage for all the smaller things.
The "hard" storage at the bottom takes the power cords and other cables.
So as a work bag, it's great.
Comfortable, looks smart, fits over the handles on rolling luggage.
Good size for the "smaller" carry on for flights. (rolling suitcase as the main, this as the secondary, had no issues with it being deemed too big)
It's probably not big enough as a work AND a weekend bag.
Get the next size up for that.
Well, if you didnt have too much work stuff and just wanted a T shirt and a few minor bits in the 2nd main pocket, then ok I suppose, but you know what i mean. One or the other really.
I'd guess then as a guide, it would probably hold about 6 ish 15" laptops across the 2 main pockets and be full ish but not overly stuffed.
May take a 17" in teh back, there is good space around the edge of the big 15, but measure up first.
So again, travel suitcase and work, , maybe not, but work bag for good amount of well organised work stuff and looks really smart, it's bang on.
I had a Timbuk2 bag before this, the main zip failed, the return policy was a waste of time, this one seems much better.
And its zips bigger, more robust and designed to be self protecting against rubbing and wear.
Appreciate its not cheap and kind of an unknown brand in a market of hundreds of bags, but so far, worth the money and if it went missing I'd get it again.
Edit: I wrote this review about a week ago and am looking at it with a clearer head, and although I still can't justify a high star rating, I feel that I was rather unfair with the one-star rating. It would need a good downpour to let water in and it's no worse than a lot of other bags. I still stand by my comment (below) of the closed zip placement and the need of a storm flap, but together with a newly purchased rucksack cover this is now a workable bag in the rain. So, am changing to three stars due to the quality of the bag.
I get that the bag is water resistant (not waterproof), and I wouldn't expect it to be water tight in a torrential downpour, but why oh why are the zips for the two main compartments configured to be at the top of the bag when closed, leaving potential access to rain. Why couldn't the zips be configured to be at the bottom of the bag when closed, or maybe even have some kind of protective flap over them? There are double edges under the zips but I want water to be stopped before it gets into the bag. It seems strange to me that the compartments that will tend to contain electrical items and books (none of which are good with water) inside them have this baked-in weak point to water ingress.
Because of the lack of confidence I have in the bag when it's raining, I'm left with the choices of; not using it, transferring everything to a different bag when it's wet, or getting a rain cover, none of which are ideal.
For me, the bag is 99% perfect for me, and in dry weather I'm as happy as a happy clam, but in the wet I have no confidence that my kit will be protected, which to me is a big disappointment.
