Great Travel Bag!

I got the Bolt on a Thursday and have been traveling the two weeks since then. The first trip was by plane. The zipper that provides direct access to my Surface Pro should be a design standard on every bag. It is just that useful. The various other pockets have me ample space for cables, keys, wallet, and even my belt. All I had to do was slip off my shoes and I was through the TSA screening in a snap. The bag is easy to carry and did not get in the way when I was pulling my roller or my wife's golf clubs.
I had to add my 13 inch tablet and power cable to the mix for the road trip. I had lots of space left over and the bag was still easy to carry. I take this bag everywhere now. It is exactly what I have been searching for.

Just what the doctor ordered

This is backpack I have been looking for the past two years. The construction is flawless, the dual zippers on the main compartment is well thought out, the ballistic nylon material will last a very long time. I am a big fan of waterfield deigns and it is my "go-to" store. The straps are also comfortable. I definetly recommend this product.

WaterField always delivers!

I the padded gear pouch, the iPad sleeve case, the travel wallet, the large bolt duffle, the large outback tote and now the bolt backpack. I addicted and love them all. I could be president of the WaterField Fan Club....highly recommended them all.

Bolt Backpack

This backpack is fantastic. I love the way it is organized and compact. With the pack being so compact, my only issue is that it's difficult to have the pack tight/straight against my back without tightening the straps too much. The small size allows it to angle against the back, if that makes sense.
But that's a minor disadvantage and overall it's a great backpack.
