Overall, the Thule Paramount Backpack is another fantastic piece of quality kit, from the Swedish brand. It has a rugged and robust look and feel to it, and it has storage that is well thought-out and extremely practical. It's comfortable, durable and a pleasure to use. I have a new everyday carry.
