  • Q & A

Questioning the durability.

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I picked this up back in 2015, after 2 days at the university carrying books I noticed the padded back panel started to fray and the black AC2 fabric was showing signs of abrasions. While I feel confident the pack would keep water out for a period of time or if worn/used properly I have serious questions about it's durability. Furthermore I would not consider this a comfortable shoulder/messenger bag.

Very poor shoulder strap

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I like the AC2 fabric and the color, however the strap is really poor. I can't imagine carrying much weight in this for long before it would start to be uncomfortable.

Full body contact

    Lock it around your waist and slug it over your shoulder.

      Waterproof. Tough.

      A good sack to keep your powder dry.

      Waist belt maxes out on a 36/37 inch waist... no more slack.


      Good bad

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Good day pack size.
      Fairly comfortable slung around my back.
      Waist strap maybe alittle too short to use for extra stability.

      Like the green high visibility color while biking.
      I think the next smaller size would work for a day pack too.
      The fabric seems highly water reistance with weatherproof zippers.
