Great EDC bag

By Doxlie

from NY

Was this a gift?

  • No

Pros

  • Easy To Load
  • Difficult To Spot
  • Comfortable
  • Large Capacity

My profession is

  • Other

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

  • 1-3 months

  • 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.

  • 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.

Best bag ever

By TJ

from Sacramento, CA

Pros

  • Great Everyday Carry
  • Great Design
  • Comfortable
  • Good colors
  • Made well

Was this a gift?

  • No

Cons

  • Admin Pocket Size

My profession is

  • Other

I have used this product for

  • 6-12 months

Best Uses

  • Hiking
  • CCW
  • Everyday carry
  • Camping
  • Travel

I am a teacher and I use this everyday. Pack is designed great and unlike the MOAB 6 (which I like alot), the COVRT does what it is suppossed to do and blends in well.
I do wish the admin pocket was a little larger. This would allow me to carry more items which can be accessed easily without opening the larger main compartment. Large compartment has 2 main storge pockets (Mesh). Padded pocket for computer or tablet.
Hydration pocket holds large 3 liter bladder.
Sunglasses pocket holds large sunglasses case which allows me to hold sunglasses and prescription glasses. Front compartment folds down to reveal Molle System whisch allows you to add additional storage such as a 6.6 pouch, etc.
I typically clip in my 5.11 knife and flashlight and leave it zipped up. But I like the option of the molle.
Has a CCW area with velcro patch. I have my CCW permit so I sometimes keep my firearm here when I don't carry on me. This area can also be extra storage if you don't CCW.
Shoulder straps have velcro strips abd loops which allows you to add accessories to keep items close to you. Great place to keep camera on a hike or phone.
Overall, I love this bag. You will not be dissapointed.

Almost Perfect - Epic Fail

By PDH

from Phoenix, AZ

Pros

  • Perfect size
  • Quality build
  • Compartment Configuration
  • Reasonably Priced

Was this a gift?

  • No

Cons

  • Handle Placement

My profession is

  • Other

I have used this product for

  • Less than a month

Best Uses

  • Day pack
  • Travel
  • Range bag

This pack was almost perfect for my purpose. The only flaw is in the handle placement. The handle is placed so far forward on the shoulder straps that I couldn't wear the pack comfortably. I like my packs to ride high on my back, but the handle won't let that happen.

I like the pack so much that I decided to try and modify it rather than return it. Long story short; my modifications didn't work out and I had to throw the pack in the trash.

I'm hoping 5.11 will offer a second COVERT model with a repositioned handle.

Still a fan and user of 5.11 products.

I have tried every style briefcase or backpack for travel and work. This is the best designed backpack I have ever used. It is Comfrtable, roomy and the pockets are well thought out.

I have over 200,000 air miles using this pack and it hardly shows wear. Except for the top of the shoulder strap where it attaches to the pack. the stitching has worn and strtched until the strap is tearing away from the pack. if the strap had been sewn into the pack and tied into the top of the pack instead of a simple stiched fabric to fabric attachment it would be a perfect pack. I would buy it again hopefully they fis this one flaw.
