comfortable to use, worth the price, seriously very organized to the T. Elegant and very spacious.
The bag is great, depends on your purpose but it serves me well as a school bag and travel bag. I use the DART pack as an EDC pack as it's a bit smaller. Quality build like everything 5.11, heavy duty and sturdy with plenty of storage and tons of room for clothes and books and just about anything else you can imagine. The 270° zip of the main compartment is extremely handy; makes pulling stuff out of the bag much easier.
There is an exterior compartment behind the padding that is perfect for a plate or soft armor. I have a plate there, and the compartment is very sturdy and stiff and works perfectly. However, the only problem I have with the pack, and the reason I have to give 3 stars, is because I have found if you slip anything into the exterior compartment, the laptop compartment on the interior is pulled too tightly to fit a small laptop. I have a very slim 13" 2016 MacBook Pro and it will not fit in the laptop compartment at the same time that something such as a plate is placed in the exterior compartment.
I love the bag, I would just prefer the laptop compartment not fit as tight.
