Commuting friend loves it!
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
I got this for my friend who rides her bike everywhere and was in dire need of a pack that fits everything she needs for the day (breakfast+lunch+work clothes +gym clothes+ etc.) and she majorly digs it. Says its really comfy to ride with even when it is packed to the brim. Lots of pockets and integrated sunglasses case are some of her favorite features. Only thing she would change would be to add some reflective fabric or something to the back to help be seen at night. Other than that, she loves it!
Solid Backpack, Even Better Warranty
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Bought this backpack back in June of 2016. Absolutely loved it! I've taken it on hikes, used it during day-trips in cities, used it for college as a bike commuter, and taken it on flights. This backpack zips down the side to reach the main compartment and zips on the backside to reach your laptop, which is very well thought out!
I did research on this backpack before buying it and how waterproof came up multiple times. As a student in California that has endured all the rain to and from school, I can say that it's pretty dang waterproof. You can't dunk it in water and expect it to be dry, but I've had all my belongings stay dry even in the heaviest of rains. I will admit that the material of the flap does absorb most of the water, but it did not seep into the backpack.
In February, one of the clips on the flap came undone. I was tightening the straps and the clip just ripped out and it was apparent the stitching was faulty. I emailed Backcountry to see what I could do and they were super helpful. They held a replacement for me while I sent it. I did have to pay for shipping, but it was relatively cheap. Thule has a great warranty in regards to any material defects. No questions asked.
On a side note, the mesh that holds water bottles on the side is kinda thin. It did rip because I had a 21oz water bottle, but I was able to stitch it back together and it was good as new!
Overall, 9/10 would recommend. Most definitely the best backpack I've ever owned.
