Rated 5 out of 5 byShadowBoxer from Outstanding design, material and workmanshipThis is my EDC pack - stylish, tough and organized. Thule product designers (and I) clearly appreciate the advice, "a place for everything, and everything in its place." From the tough material to the crushproof pocket (with removable glasses/etc case) to the nearly hidden middle pocket, this bag is the best. Believe me - I looked at A LOT of similar packs!Great for EDC and travel (slides easily under the seat in front, allowing ready access to everything inside). This great pack is small enough to count as a "personal item," on the reasonable commercial airlines (the discount airlines like Frontier and Spirit will still try to screw you.) So, you can actually have a larger, separate carry-on bag! Based on my 3yo Subterra 25L, I would only offer 4 suggested improvements: (1) an interior RFID-pocket, (2) additional multi-density paying in shoulder straps, (3) hidden quick-access pockets in the shoulder straps for transit cards, etc., and (4) a hidden, quick-access pocket on the top flap. (See Kickstarter and Indiegogo backpack projects for more clever ideas!)

Rated 5 out of 5 byAnna the onion from Use this pack everydayIf you want a bomber backpack that looks safari cool without trying this is the one! I get so many compliments on this pack. I love rolling up a blanket and strapping it in the overhead flap. It is perfect for your every adventure and I have now had a pair of sunglasses for over a month that I have not broken. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 byKelly from Compact and holds everything I needThis is a well designed backpack. I like the quick access features. Plus it doesn't feel bulky on my petite 5'2 frame. My one request is that there is an option to have the side access zippers, water bottle holder, and safe pocket on the other side. Ask the customer do you carry the bag on your right shoulder for quick access with your left hand and vice versa. I use public transit to commute and it will take some getting used to, to keep the bag on my left shoulder in order to get my wallet and/or phone.

Rated 5 out of 5 byGerome from Great bag to have.I have been looking for the perfect EDC bag. I often ride my bike to work. I love the versatility of the bag. I love the look of it. It projects an amazing urban look. Only wish I have for this bag is to have a Luggage strap as I also want to bring it on my travels. Overall still an amazing bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 byLynn from I LOVE this bag!I cannot sing enough praise for this bag! I am 5'5 and petite. As a college student in a very rainy, tropical climate, I love how this bag is waterproof. In fact, it proved itself the day I purchased it! Quick dried in about 15 minutes!My major requires me to carry some small, valuable equipment including a glorified USB drive and a MacBook. The lap top pocket protects my MacBook with ease, and I don't have to worry about it being scratched or banged up. The no crush pocket allows me to safely store my USB drives, sunglasses, snacks/candy, and anything else I don't want to risk being smashed.The zippered pocket behind the folding Velcro one on the front is the perfect size for my two composition notebooks. The largest pocket holds my large binder and all of my books, which is great because I have one day a week where I must take them all.I love the zippered pocket on the inside for safe keeping of any valuables. My student ID and writing utensils fit perfect in the pocket under the buckled section.Any student would benefit from using this bag! The style is modern and minimalist. As someone with scoliosis, I need well padded straps and backpacks that distribute weight well. I have over 30 pounds of weight in my bag all the time, and I barely even notice it. The added chest buckle on the shoulder straps bumps the comfort level! I like how it keeps the bag in place, even when I bend down.Bottom line, if you're reading this, purchase the bag!

Rated 5 out of 5 byKennethBokor from Great BackpackJust received my green version a week or so ago. My old laptop backpack was much bigger and I travel a lot and wanted something smaller, that would still hold all my gear. This is a great size and holds my MacBook Pro 15inch with cover, iPad Pro 12-Inch with cover and keyboard case, all adapters and many other supplies. Love the side zippers including the laptop compartment zipper to make it easier at TSA security in airports. So far, feels very good when being carried and I am a long-time Thule fan with luggage and bike racks all front them. I highly recommend this as a mid-sized backpack to travel with.

Rated 5 out of 5 byBiker Chic from LOVE this backpack!By far one of the best backpacks I've had. I'm big on functionality and utility and this pack has a place for everything! The side-access pockets are great for getting in & out of your bag quickly. The front pocket is big enough for a large women's wallet. The straps are wide and comfortable. I work out of my bag and this bag is like taking a well-organized desk with you!

Rated 5 out of 5 byAxel from Fabric feels cheapHello everyone. I received a green version of this bag from amazon about two weeks ago.The fabric feels really cheap. It feels like I could tear it apart easily and that it will not last long... It is also not water repellent. It actually soaks the water... I know this bag is not meant to be especially water repellent, but come on, if the fabric was denser and the weave of higher quality, the bag would react differently to water.Is the fabric used for the green version any different from the others version? In that case I will definitely change it! Because in the end I like the design! But the quality for the price and the reputation of Thule is not as expected. Lots of thread are loose... !!thank you for your answers

Rated 5 out of 5 byQj1996 from Would buy again. My item was probably defective.Overall a great backpack for school, hiking, and traveling. Looks amazing and functions just as well. The multiple compartments and access to these compartments is well thiught out. My only issue is that the adjustment straps for the shoulder straps always loosen on its own when I'm carrying a heavier load. The strap stoppers (don't know what they're called) don't bite the strap at all, and I've resorted to tying them down. This gets to be annoying, especially when I need to adjust the length for different purposes. Also, the side mesh pocket is thin and easily ripped. Otherwise a very functionsl pack.

Rated 5 out of 5 byTadsuo from Great backpackI was tired of carrying à laptop backpack and my gym bag. Saw this bag and right off the bat it was perfect. My gym clothes, shoes, deodorant, small bottle shampoo, laptop, its charger and mouse in one bag. No more hassle to carry two bags!A bit pricey but for the quality and practicability, it's all good.
