A Bag Built for the City

When we first started working with the legendary John Cardiel to develop this bag to keep all the gear he needed for a week on the road organized and within reach, we didn't know we had a fan favorite on our hands. Now slightly redesigned for a better strap fit, increased comfort on the back panel and an upgraded sternum strap, the Fortnight still hauls tons of gear, has plenty of pockets for organization and an extra flap for large or unwieldy cargo. Just like Cards, this bag goes hard.

  • Killer Bag!

    I've only used it a couples of times but is proven to be a tough and versatile bag.

    Killer bag.

    Only used a few times but so far I am very impressed with the fit and finish of the bag. It's very heavy duty and is gonna take some time to break in. Time to get to work!

    This bag is amazing, it's stylish, spacious, and feels great on your back. I don't know what they did with the bag, but it's like all the weight from your cargo disappears the moment you put it on. This is great for me since I commute a lot in the weather of Chicago. It has a ton of storage, which stored my books, notebooks, and water bottle (32 oz). It has two integrated pouches in the main compartment, which fits anything loose like cables, a calculator, pencils, etc. But my main problem with this bag is its reliance on velcro. The pocket underneath the flap is all velcro, the two pouches on the inside are also velcro which is kind of awkward to open in a school environment, but hasn't posed too much of a problem for me. Also, the pocket inside the big flap is a little tight, I get it's meant for travel documents but it would be better if it could accommodate different things. Overall the zippers, compression straps, and fabric feel very high quality and could last me a long time.

    Unique Backpack But...

    3

    I currently use this backpack for everyday use. Pros: - Material of backpack feels solid and robust - Sternum strap is comfortable and keeps bag secured when walking or riding a bike - Looks unique and is aesthetically pleasing Cons: - IS NOT WATERPROOF - I have had items damaged inside my backpack despite completely zipping and closing all compartments. After a rainfall, I found items (notebooks, journals, electronics, etc.) slightly damp. - Way too heavy - Lack of functionality - There are compartments inside the backpack that seem too difficult to easily access and too small to serve any purpose. The Velcro pockets on this backpack are a headache - be prepared to alert everyone in a library or quiet area that you are opening your backpack. Advice to Chrome: - Make the backpack more robust in regards to weather-proofing. There are way too many seams in the interior that seem susceptible to water entry. - Improve the functionality of the many different pockets. Perhaps consider only zippered pockets for added protection. - I feel this backpack is over-priced. While it may be a limited release, consider whether the marginal benefits and overall features are appropriately priced.
