    2 years on, no regrets

    I've bought it since 2019. It's still my everyday bag, best bag. I've just put it into the washing machine last week for the first wash (don't judge!) And it came out as good as new.

    A nice commuter bag

    I've been shopping for something in the 12-18 liter range, and was excited to find this. It is lightweight and just roomy enough for my typical commute.

    When I purchased this, in May 2023, they were sold out of the Able Carry store, and my only option was to buy one from a local distributor. Unfortunately, it was only available in black, though I would have preferred a red or olive. The company will restock this bag in September '23, and my guess is that it might have upgrades that it would have been worth waiting for. But even knowing this, I still decided to buy now because I've been searching high and low for something in this size range that is lightweight and comfortable, but still looks like an 'adult' backpack.

    PROS: (1) Fantastic pockets! And the front pocket has an interior loop that lets me secure my transit pass to it. (2) Top handle -- just awesome; the best on any backpack I've carried so far. (3) Clean shape and design. Often small bags meant for shorter people are cutesy in a way I don't like. (4) Stretchy area inside -- for an umbrella or water bottle.

    CONS: (1) As many have mentioned, it needs a sternum strap. (2) The X-Pac exterior is almost TOO stiff on such a small bag. But on the other hand, it is great that it holds its shape, even standing upright if it's balanced. (3) It gets hot against the back.

    Everyone asks me where I got this backpack

    It just the right size to put my laptop , climbing shoes, water bottle without looking bulky. Super light weight and slim, and more importantly stylish.

    And yes! Everyone asks me where I got it!

    My favorite bag so far

    Really well thought out. The little details like the movable key strap, hiding the chest strap, the hidden pockets, all of it seem like a labor of love. Thanks!

    I'm generally satisfied.

    I bought this to go with my M2MacBook Air.

    I am happy to be able to quickly and easily pack everything I need for the day and go.

    It's just so light!

    I hope the next model will improve the heat buildup on the back.
