This is a singularly focused pack, but being fully waterproof is quite a useful trick for a commuting bag. We’ve used this a lot over the last year and what it lacks in other features, like a laptop sleeve, internal dividers or pockets, we forgive when it’s monsoon conditions.
The twin side pouches are usefully sized and positioned to help with nic-nac stashing. The roll-top and clip closure works well and doesn’t compromise the load space.
Fit is good thanks to the limited padding keeping it close to your back. Laptop users will be split between those who value the bag’s watertight nature and those who want a specialist sleeve.
