Pack Config

A bag which is big enough, strong enough, waterproof, can fit my laptop and jacket, can be worn all day, and still fit in carry on luggage. All in all I love this bag, and will use it until it falls apart, or more likely I do first.

Shutter Muse

Climbers have ample space for gear, both internally and externally attached, and mountain bikers will appreciate the resilient design and its resistance to mud. It’s even a great choice for landscape photographers that want to get off the beaten path and people that travel in areas of unpredictable weather, because it just feels like this pack could take a lifetime of abuse.

If you are looking for a medium sized, extremely durable backpack with a removable insert, then you need to give this bag a serious look.
