Just received this bag.  The bag strap is fixed so if you put something heavy like a dap, dac, and amp it won't slid down or detach itself.  My mock up rig(ipod, E11, and E7) is 4.4" x 1.5" x 2.4".  Really good sling bag if you want to walk around town while still getting desktop quality musicL3000.gif

The bag itself is small but you can put a lot of small items but can't fit my 12.5" Lenovo lappymad.gif(12" x 8.5" x 0.8 external dimension). Good thing I have my Epic 4g if I need to surf the netbiggrin.gif

I love Gregory backpacks! 

 

These are the ones that I rock:

Palisade 80 - for trips into the backcountry.

Z30 - for day hikes

Z22 - for biking, or just a general daypack

Has anyone tried the Ebags.com Weekend Convertible? I've had my eye one this for some time, but I have a hard time deciding because I can't go into a physical store and look at it.

 

For now I'm using a SwissGear Product, but I'm usually carrying a lot more than my laptop (a change of clothes if I work too late and need to stay the night in the city), so it gets heavy. The SwissGear I have doesn't have support straps on the waist and chest so it's hard on my back.

I have another version of this backpack and find it extremely for -37 days' trips. Build quality is superb and it has lots of pockets. Very nice. It is a pity ebags closed their business in the UK.

I wish I was back in highschool so I could use a backpack... or that I had use for one in daily life. These are awesome.

Jansport, Troop london, Chrome.

 

I am using a Troop london  they don`t have my model but it is almost like this

Side pocket is awesome it can fit 1 letre thermos flask. Metal buckles are a plus the webbing used to slip but I modified it and for the price it is the best bag I ever used.

Ordered a Large Flight Bag from Scaramanga in Scotland. Should get it soon :D Will be my first leather bag, hoping it lasts a while.

 

 

 

It's just one big compartment on the inside, so I'll have to make up some kind of felt divisive lining for my laptop and books etc.

Why not get a sleeve for your laptop and just throw your books in the large compartment.. Use the outside pockets for smaller items. No lining nesecary.

I'm unconvinced messenger bags have the long term ergonomics I want. May have to try one out, but this Mission backback looks good--too bad its not one size smaller. Theres also the Bailey. I'll use it occasionally on a commuter bike being put together, so shallow depth and stable pack retention is good.

I have the Mission Workshop Sanction. It's not terribly large, but since I don't carry too much stuff with me on a daily basis, it's not a problem.

post #222 of 239

^ Yea its similar in size to the Citi Pack, but looks like the Sanction *might* load out a little flatter. 

post #223 of 239

i use the 5.11 24 hour pack and its a great pack but a bit heavy for everyday use..im looking for a similar pack if anyone knows of one.

post #224 of 239

Edit (fixed link, also got a pack for cycling:

Macpac Wharfedale:

I tried various camelbaks, but they didn't feel nearly as solid as the macpac did. so I went with it.
