Hi all, Long-time member, occasional lurker. I checked similar topics but the priorities seemed a bit different so let me lay mine out and perhaps someone will suggest something that fits my bill. Long story short: I've used my Rush 12 for 9-10 years, day in, day out, as EDC and carry-on travel, and finally it's given in to the wear. I love all but one thing about it (bottom of the below list). I'm looking for something similar in: - size (~18Hx11Wx6.5D") - looks (don't gimme smart, gimme rugged) - capacity (~22-25L) - durability (I want it built to last) but: + dedicated laptop compartment (separate access) This one last thing is the only reason why I'm even looking at alternatives instead of buying the very same model right away. I haven't followed the backpack 'scene' -- any new players around worth looking at? I'm open to new names / KS projects etc as long as I find credible info about the quality. Cheers in advance!
