Fantastic product! I bought a green colour one ( not in display ) and this bag is tough and the most useful bag I have ever had. It looks really good and comfortable too. Moreover it has great padding so my laptop remains safe in it and the bag is built to distribute weight evenly over your shoulders. I cycle with my laptop in the bag and I couldn't have done it without Aplinism :) Reply
This pack has been tested in so many different places and activities that I have found feature that I really like, and some features that I would definitely change. I like that I could put a hydration bladder in the pack. This was especially nice in the hot weather.
When I have used it for skiing it stayed with my body really well so that when I was carving down the hill I never even noticed it.
The pack has been, for me, a great size for day hikes. I have found it a little small if I have to pack a sleeping bag and pad for an overnighter. Without an internal frame, it just doesn’t work too well. The drawback to the design was that there aren’t any outside pockets other than the one on the hood. The main compartment is a drawstring top. This is easy to get into, but, it is hard to access things without digging through the whole pack. I have found the pack to be very durable over the years that I have used it. Reply

I have never carried a briefcase, nor a laptop bag in 33 years of my work life. I have always preferred a backpack to carry my personal belongings – in travel, and at work. I have used many world renown brands (northface, karrimor, REI, Berghaus). I liked many of them. But this product i now own for the past 6 months takes the cake and the icing! Its perfect for a meeting (laptop, pens, diary, glasses, a waterproof in the monsoons, goggles, even a book in case of delays). Its perfect for a day-hike (water bottle, goggles, spare socks, waterproof / warm Quechua fleece, first-aid kit, camera, floaters). With one strap on the shoulder it stays rooted, and doesn’t slip off.
Its hard to put feelings on paper, specially when you are thinking ‘product’! But this is not just a ‘product’ alone; its a big part of my daily life, and so greater the difficulty!
My only wish – more colors. The present blue/grey i have is classy! Reply

The bag is comfy and is a good looker. It has been with me on all kinds of trips; from Mountain Biking expeditions and Ski Trips in the Himalayas to trekking through the Rain Forests of Kerala and running in the monsoons of the Western Ghats. At other times, it sits behind as a Motorcycle bag blazing the highways or doing the usual office rounds. It is the perfect bag for all reasons (and seasons) for someone who is always out there.

Good quality for the price. strong and very comfortable on Hikes and Motorcycles rides. very strong and takes a lot of beating without a wear and tear. Not recommended for rains as water enters through the water sack feed line and stays inside bottom for long period. Reply
