I got this bag a few months ago before a trip to Washington D.C. The thing that attracted me to this bag was how discreet it is. It's essentially a book bag that's made out of the nicest materials possible, with a few 'tactical' features added. It's comfortable to wear for extended periods of time with the type of weight you'd have from day to day. Normally I don't use the molle webbing on the side either, to avoid the tactical look. For demonstration, I threw on my Leatherman. The side Nalgene pocket is perfect. It's zips to the pack flush when not in use. The main compartment is big enough for everything you need for a day. I usually only have my rain jacket it in there, with room to throw in the jacket I'm wearing when I get too hot. You can see the high-vis backing: The big front pocket has handy organization built in. The small front pocket is perfect for the little things you need to grab often. I store a medium Seal Line bag in the with batteries and my camera. I didn't take a picture of the Laptop pocket. It's pretty self-explanatory. They say a 17" laptop fits. It's fairly hidden too. Accessories I would add/things I would change: I added a Grimloc on one of the shoulder straps to keep my gloves handy. I also added the the Grimloc inside the pack in the space provided. I opted for a Coyote color to make it easier to find the button. You must get ITW web dominators for the shoulder straps as nothing is provided to keep the excess in check. I removed all the metal zipper pulls and used the provided paracord to replace them. I also replaced the black paracord pull in the front pocket with red so you can see it! And finally, I removed the Velcro from the front to help blend in even more. Overall this pack is well worth the $100 price tag, made in the USA quality, top-notch materials, and great customer service from Tactical Tailor. Let me know if you have any questions.
