The Gadgeteer

It’s generous pocket sizing, simple layout, lightweight, and comfortable padding make it an easy bag to live with as a daily office driver. I do have some concerns about its durability (and lack of water resistance) when facing heavy abuse. If you’re looking for a wallet-friendly backpack for the day-to-day office commute, however, you could do far worse at this price point.
