Amazing Bag!

I searched for a bag that was built with quality in mind. This is exactly what you get. Good ol craftsmanship. I can’t wait for the leather’s patina to age. It’ll just get better with time.

Una mochila muy bien disenada

Realmente me encanta esta mochila. Es muy resistente y muy ligero. Sin embargo creo que podrian tener un compartimento separado en la parte superior de la bolsa para gafas de sol.

Excellent backpack

I’m generally very well pleased by the build quality, materials and functionality of the Executive Laptop backpack. My major suggestion would be to add provision for a sternum strap; on my (fairly narrow) shoulders, it tends to slip off when worn over a heavy winter down coat.

Exceed expectations.

First rate workmanship and materials. Thoughtful design. Very easy to use.

Great American-made backpack

This is perfect for a traveling mini-office. I can fit my travel monitor (9.25" x 14.75" x 1"), laptop (9" x 12.75" x 0.5"), my iPad (10.5" x 7.5" x 0.5"), folio with papers, thermal camera, moisture meters, kestrel, and change of clothes, with plenty of room for water bottle and smaller items (earpods, keys, chargers, etc) plus room to spare.

This is sturdily built (seems likely to last a long time), comfortable to wear on your back while also fits nicely on the roller suitcase, and Made in USA as previously mentioned. For the quality, endurance (hopefully), practicality and location of manufacture, the price is well worth it.

I researched Made in USA backpacks for weeks, finding out disturbing trends along the way. Most notable that some companies decided to boost other countries' economies instead of their own. Not this company, they're still here and hopefully that continues.
