It took me a long time to decide to get this pack, especially since there are a number of other similar options in Frost River's line up of bags and daypacks. This one is one of the smallest capacities I looked at, and I am very glad I chose it. I'm a welding teacher, and I fit two text books, a 3inch three ring binder, a moleskin, my laptop, and writing utensils. It could hold maybe one or two more thin books, but the capacity is perfect. I really like the internal zippered pocket for holding my calculator and pens.I like that it is just the size I need and that I'm not hauling around a large bag. It has all the quality I've come to expect from Frost River's items, and it was nice to find a simple bag without a lot of frills. For hauling books between classes, this bag can't be beat.
This is an excellent little pack for adventuring with a couple beers, water bottle, book and snacks with room to keep an extra layer. Super sturdy while being pretty light and the straps are comfortable. I found the straps to be approaching the right/most comfortable length on the tightest setting, so I think the overall strap length should be shortened, hence 4 stars. I'm 5'4" and size S for reference. Otherwise a perfect pack, thank you!
Rugged old school pack that is as at home in the office as in the woods thanks to its good looks. I carry a laptop, tablet, and other goodies on a daily basis, and everything needed for an overnight in the woods on the weekend. Looks great strapped the the back of my Harley too.
I bought this to carry stuff on my bike. it's simple, comfortable, and roomy, and the build looks indestructible. It reminds me of the "haversack" (day pack) that I had when I was in Boy Scouts, about 60 years ago. That pack lasted for about 40 years of travel and hiking, and this one should see me out.
I bought this for my wife. She uses it for food shopping locally and for personal items on long canoe trips.
She is delighted
The materials and construction are excellent quality.
