My lovely wife purchased the front pocket backpack in Tobacco Brown, as a Christmas gift, and it is everything I hoped it would be!
I travel for work 2-3 times per month, and this pack will fit my clothes and belongings for a typical 2-3 day stint. Also, when not traveling, I will be taking this backpack into the woods on hunting and hiking expeditions several times a year, with no worries at all regarding its durability and usability.
A total side note, but, I recommend picking up a pair of the leather straps, as the D rings on the bottom of the pack work really well for attaching anything from a rolled up jacket, or even a rolled sleeping bag for those overnight hiking trips.
Thanks Dave and Co. for making another fantastic product!
I have just received the dream bag - the large front pocket backpack in chestnut. I can't wait for it to look like I've had it and used it everyday for ten years. It's the bag I've always wanted yet I didn't know because it didn't yet exist. So happy with my purchase.
