Been using this as a day pack for construction work. Fits my lunch, phone charger, head phones wallet etc perfectly. It's very well built, and seems tobstand up to construction life well so far. Proud to support American made!
I love this bag. Quality through & through. An ALMOST perfect bag for my laptop. My only want would be a slightly bigger version. My 13" Framework just barely squeezes in there: it's close enough of a fit that I don't use it for it, but sure wish I could.
Originally purchased this pack as a gift for my husband, then he purchased one for me, this one is for our 11 yr old daughter that had been pleading for one for awhile now! We love them!
This is a very nice bag where configuration is limited only by your imagination. There are multiple ways to wear it, and many ways to lash and secure items on the outside. If in a crowd, wear it as a chest pack with the front of the bag facing your body for security. The dimensions are great and there is a lot of useful volume. I like that the main compartment is not divided and enables maximum flexibility. It's really a 1/2 backpack and is perfect when you don't need a full backpack. A 26 oz. YETI fits easily in about 1/3 the space. The outside pockets are large enough and easy to access. The side leather lashing patches could be used to carry anything from a small hatchet or large knife to a coat or that water bottle holder that FR has yet to design...(hint). One could also use the cord and strap on the front with the canvas 'shelf' at the bottom to secure similar items. I am a guy 5'10, 42" chest and the bag wears like a 1/2 backpack with the strap fully extended. It will not extend to mid hip level if you are an average sized guy. The strap is comfortable. I have no problem wearing it for over an hour without thinking of repositioning when fully loaded. My original purchase had a stitching defect. I returned the bag and FR promptly sent me a new one. They will take care of you if there is a problem.
Small and versatile.
