The urban/military style of the backpack is not something I would have sought out, but because the design of the bag has lent itself so well to organization, I have really taken a liking to it and will likely end up getting a personalized patch for the outside.

Loadout Room

The Altitude is put together very well. From the military grade velcro and the aviator-inspired hardware. This lightweight, ultra-durable parachute nylon backpack empty is light as a feather.

The Gadgeteer

The design is great for a person on the go who is not interested in lugging a traditional computer back or messenger bag to work. The metal zippers are a great feature and are sturdy. With a mix of metal aviation inspired hardware and the lightweight plastic buckles, the backpack is both stylish and practical.
