I use this bag in my day to day job, this is my second bag of this type I have purchased. They wear out a little faster that a 1000d cordura backpack but that is to be expected, if you want a back pack that looks like a college back pack, and then run it like a military bag things will happen. But other than that (and the fact they don't make the moss color anymore) I only have one complaint, and that is I would like to see molle inside of the bag, in place of the laptop sleeve.

I have used this product for

  • Less than a month

I have yet to determine why this pack needs ventilation holes (not mentioned anywhere on the website) on the BOTTOM. I don't know what I could have in the main compartment that I would rather have air ventilation for versus the potential of getting it wet if I have to put my bag down. Are we to assume that this bag is to never be placed on the ground? I'm not sure how durable the grommets are going to be with any wear. I like all of the pockets even though I'm not sold on the zippers just yet. Very comfortable on the back with a variety of adjustments available.

I use this product for both school and work. During the day it holds all my notebooks and computer plus whatever else I need for the day. During the nights when I am on shift it holds all of my BLS gear and my computer so I can also do some school work. The only problem is when you roll down the front panel to show the mollee the bottom row is blocked and they could add a couple more rows above the current placement.

This pack is well worth the money. It is very durable and does everything that I need. The straps/ carry handle are among the best I have seen on any pack. The padding is amazing for heavy loads. Additionally, the pockets can be customized with mollie pouches which is a very nice touch. Ultimate custom pockets to meet your needs.

I use this everyday to carry multiple books, laptop, charger, calculator, pens, pencils, etc. It has shown zero signs on wear throughout the year and 10 months + that I have owned it. I have no doubt that this will hold up for many years to come. When it finally runs out of gas, I will try my best to purchase another.

Buy with confidence. Mine still looks brand new.

Great EDC bag

I have used this product for

  • 1-2 years

I've been using this bag for over a year now. I carry an iPad, pens, pencils, notepad, Nalgene water bottle, first aid kit in a 6.6 Med Pouch, several granola bars, folding knife, tactical flashlight, small tube of sunscreen, chapstick, fire starting materials and a Glock 23 with 2 spare magazines. There is still plenty of room for more. It comes to work with me everyday and it doubles as my carryon for flights several times a year. It's still in great shape with no signs of wearing out.

I did have an issue with one of the snap buckles breaking. I called 5.11 and 2 minutes later they sent out a new one free of charge. Great products and great customer service!

FANTASTIC WORK/LAPTOP/CARRY-ON BACKPACK

  • Day pack

I recently got my COVRT 18 backpack and I just wanted to let you know how incredibly well it's been working as my daily office briefcase and most recently at a convention in Las Vegas. I have to say, having the 2 pockets (rear and middle) with access from both sides was a plus while walking around from booth to booth collecting information from vendors. The multiple pockets made it easy to store my cell phone back up charger, and other files in the main compartment. Plenty of places to store pens, business cards and other items in the front pockets. Outside compartments were great for water bottles and the padded handle was comfortable. Only complaint was that there are so many pockets and I had to get used to where I put things, as I've used the same dinosaur laptop bag for years. The sunglasses pocket kept me from needing to carry the case daily, but I was able to strap the case in for the flight to the webbing inside the front pocket. Big item I loved was that I didn't have the annoying banging of the metal zipper pulls from my old bag, though I did have to endure my co-worker's bag with his clanging zippers, but not mine!

Thanks again, worked well while wearing a suit as well as using it for travel when I'm casual. I got the Ice color; different, unique and still professional enough for work. Made several of my co-workers jealous. Made the 3 days of walking the convention center much more bearable. And as far as using it daily to carry my laptop back and forth to the office, it's plenty big enough and I've now got a place for my empty coffee travel mug at the end of the day as well without worrying about any leftover coffee spilling inside.

I bought this product over a year ago, and I have used it every day since then. I use it for school, work, and international travel. It is durable and spacious enough to carry my 15" computer, mouse, cables, chargers; textbooks, notebooks, two calculators; a small arsenal of pens, pencils, and highlighters; snacks, water bottles, sunglasses, two flashlights; Glock 19, two extra magazines; trauma shears and first aid kit. It is nice because it conceals all of these items without looking too "tactical".

Some of the stitching has worn out, and the two grommets for the drain holes at the bottom have fallen out. But it has held up remarkably well, as I would expect from 5.11. I would like to see more color options available.

Pushed to the Limits!

Best Uses

  • Day pack
  • Concealed Carry

  • EDC
  • Carry on
  • Travel

I'm a youth pastor with a CCW, a 3 year old, and 1 year old. My Covrt pack goes with me everywhere: to the office, road trips, over night trips, etc. I literally have it on my back multiple times a day, 7 days a week.
At any given time, it has my calendar, Bible, 5 subject notebook, Taurus 24/7 Pro (where allowed), extra magazine, first aid kit, EDC kit, tech cables, sun glasses, diapers, wipes, 2 water bottles,keys, etc.
I've recommended this pack to multiple friends and family members with only one complaint:
The compression straps on the side need to be about 3" lower. It currently compresses the top of the pack, while leaving the bottom portion pretty loose. Again, not a deal breaker, but I believe it's a detail that could greatly improve the functionality of the pack.

"Chairborne Ranger" Certified!

By Chairborne Ranger

Was this a gift?

  • No

Pros

  • Versatile
  • Well Designed
  • Multi-purpose
  • Durable

Cons

  • No Bungie Straps

My profession is

  • Other

I have used this product for

  • 3-6 months

Best Uses

  • Day hikes
  • Other
  • Travel Go-bag
  • Work or school
  • Range bag

I use this bag for my daily grind to work which combines driving and about 1-mile walk total. I carry laptop, snack, lunch, umbrella, coffee, water, and other essentials (flashlight, small pocket knife, x-tra pens, Motrin, etc.) for any Chairborne Ranger Contingency (to include Airport Carry-On)

It also serves great for day hikes, range bag, and hauling all required accessories for a Family Fire Team excursion to the mall, museum, zoo, whatever.

The bag is well designed, very durable, awesome zippers. The Carry Handle is genius to allow for a common portage.

Unlike other bags - this product is very comfortable with any weight/load and fits fine w/ just a t-shirt and/or my monster parka. It's water resistant (and also has drain holes in the bottom for, uh, a use I'd never have, but purty cool). I really like the velco straps on the shoulder straps which makes it easy to add on additional pouches for items you need for ready access.

The only CON is I wish it had some bungie-netting system so you could easily tangle a light jacket/coat in on the fly.

Overall - I expect to use this bag for everything for years to come. As an ex-Infantry weenie - it offers familiar comfort and durability for military usage in a civilian friendly context.
