Usage Timeline

Initial Usage

Condition: Excellent

  • Digging the simple organization, but wanting a bit more
  • The 4 compression straps do a good job at keeping things together if you’re carrying less than the total capacity can hold
  • Streamlined carry
  • We dig the matte black seatbelt buckle
  • A bit large to wear in the front of your body
2 Weeks of Use

Condition: Excellent

  • If we didn’t need to carry around a laptop, this would be an excellent go-to bag for everyday carry.
  • The main compartment doesn’t have too much organization, but it’s great for larger items like a water bottle, jacket, and tech pouch.
  • Wearing the sling on the front feels alright, but it’s about the largest we’d like to go for a 6’2″ person with a 42″ chest.
  • We’ve been referring to this bag as a cross between a messenger and a sling, which we dig.
  • The additional velcro buckle on the strap seems to be overkill for a bag of this size.
