Ain't No Weather Bad Enough
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
I was looking for a new pack for commuting, but sometimes Utah's weather can be a bit unpredictable. I knew I needed something that was comfortable, entirely weather proof, and large enough to hold all of my work clothes as well as my laptop for the day. I didn't expect to find a pack that hit all of these on the head, but I'm happy to say that I was incredibly wrong.
My favorite part of the bag hands down is the welded zippers. They swung for the fences with this feature. It's ENTIRELY water proof, and in the rain and snow storms I've been caught in, I've never once needed to worry about my laptop. Which is great considering it's a work laptop. It's got a full run of 3M reflective piping surrounding multiple parts of the bag to help with visibility, and if that wasn't enough, the bag sports 4 Red LED lights that can be controlled by a quick press to ensure motorists can see you. The sternum strap is very comfortable, or can be removed entirely as some may not be a fan of the strap itself. So you're not married to the design if it just doesn't fit your comforts wheelhouse.
This pack can be sued for commuting, or just an everyday reliable bag. It's great for commuting in the summer or winter, and has a wide variety and no shortage of space. If you're looking for that go everywhere- do everything bag, you've found it!
