I have been using this bag as my E.D.C. get home bag for couple of months now and love it. Plenty of space for my gear.
Love this pack. It goes everywhere with me. One thing I would change tho is in the pocket where your weapon goes there would be Velcro. That way you can Velcro a holster inside to keep you pistol right where it needs to. There was times I’d practice the movements and reach for the weapon and it be upside down or the barrel points at my hand.
My unit ordered a bunch of these backpacks on a recommendation from another coworker. Within the first month things started falling apart.
The cord on one of the side bottle holders snapped off.
A couple months later another cord snapped off the zipper.
Put it through an airport exeay once and it came out the other side with about three inches of the shoulder strap padding having been pushed up inside the trap.
Chest strap buckled continues to come off. Frequently.
Lost another strap the other day.
It’s not makes to be used as a duty backpack or out in the field.
I've had the bag for over a year now and use it frequently. Main complaints are seam separation around the grab handle, all four corners have separated, separation towards the bag from the yoke; grab handle needs to be closer to the center of the bag or maybe a second handle near the center, needs deeper mesh pockets, eliminate the drain holes on the bottom, bag would be better if it could free stand.
I’ve been using this bag for several weeks now. It has already been to FL, and CO. It’s a great bag, well built and has some great features. However, it needs a few key improvements. First the bottle holders on the side of the bag need to be about 3” deeper. The taller Yeti or Contigo tend to slip out when the bag is put down or slipped under an airline seat or thrown in back seat of vehicle.
The other fix that would be handy is if there was a way to remove the laptop either from the top or from the side. The side load would come in extremely handy at the airport checking through security.
I would also lile to see an accessory soft armor made to fit perfectly in the back area.
Overall the bag is great but with a few improvements it could be amazing.
I've had this bag for almost two years. I travel weekly for work and it contains my laptops, electronic equipment, cables, paperwork and other admin material very well. It takes most of the punishment I through at it, except the internal seams are ripping. The bottom seam of the top admin pouch (containing the ID flap) has ripped and I cannot use it without items falling into parts of the bag that cannot be reached externally, have to dig into the hole to retrieve it.
Otherwise it is a very good bag, but I'll have to replace it soon since I can no longer use the top pouch except for some pens and business cards.
Nothing in the description mention the 2 metal drainage holes at the bottom bag. Had the bag for about a month and keep forgetting the 2 holes and the stuff normally gets wet. The lower pad of the back of the pad is made of a suede like material that rubs off. I did not realize this at first but after a month all the backs (belt loop area) of my khaki 5.11 pants meets the bags are all black smug from the suede material.
I am in love with the bag. Solid construction, secure pockets, mesh zippers, fully adjustable yoke shoulder straps, and the moisture resistant hydration pouch sold me! It's everything that I need field bag to be.
However, the location of the top grab handle between the two shoulder straps places too much pressure on the base of my neck/spine. I had about 15 pounds in the bag and the grab handle felt like someone was pressing into my neck. The pressure only worsened with the addition of more gear. I adjusted the shoulder straps so the bag would hang lower, to alleviate the pressure, unfortunately I had to lower it below my hips.
It is with great regret, that due to the grab handle location being part of the shoulder straps, I would NOT recommend this bag for anyone shorter than 5'9".
Holds pretty much all I want (way more than I need of course) Looks good in the ice coloration. Low profile pack that blends in. Thrown this thing around with a bunch of gear inside, been out in sand with it shooting, used it as a gun rest. Holding up just fine. Just wish there were more COVRT accessories for the line.
Side pocket elastic retention band snapped right out of the bag. That was disappointing and made me wonder how long the thing was going to last. But the rest of it has held up pretty well, even though I'm reluctant to rough it up too much.
I may explore other brands for my next one.
