Some of our favorite reviews

  • Second hand, still rock-solid
    1/26/14 by F
    Got one second-hand. Still very rock solid. Rains have been always a problem with other bags, this one seems to hold it very well. The only wish is that it'd have more copartments in the main section, otherwise my laptop is kinda flying around :) The front pocket seems to be better suited for the laptop although I haven't tested that part for resistance to heavy douwnpoors. :)
  • Excellent Bag

    This bag does everything and more. Every time I load it, I'm surprised at how well it handles all my gear. Shoes, laptop, drawings, etc., all fit with ease. Very comfortable no matter what the load.
  • Great for urban commuter

    The pawn has a sturdy built and IS waterproof (tested in Switzerland during the winter). big enough for your papers, a change of clothes and a few extras. Just right for the fakengers like me. I'd say i'd buy another one, but I'm not sure I'll ever wear this one out.....
