After looking for the right pack for months...

...this one is as close to perfect as I can imagine.

Bags are tricky, really tricky. This one gets most of it right:

The right laptop size (15 inch MacBook), comfortable build, straps that aren't designed to scale Annapurna (this is a good thing), and all the right zips in all the right places.

Using this pack makes me realise how over-designed my previous pack was - too many clips and zips.

This one it the great if you like simplicity meeting utility, particularly if you get the camera insert too. It's ideal for storing a couple of bodies and a lens (I fit the Leica Q, and the Leica SL fitted with a small vintage lens... using an Urth adapter of course 😃).

It's impossible to cater to every need, so the following is simply an observation:

If you've filled up the top section with notebooks and a sweater, AND you have a laptop in there too, and you reach to get a camera out of the insert in the bottom, it can be difficult to open up split in the bag wide enough to get out a fairly chunky camera body. I had to take my sweater out of the upper compartment first. It's not a big deal, but it means that you can't just grab your camera in an instant when you've a full load. If this is a big deal for you, get the Norite pack instead.

I got the ash grey version. It's fresh and modern, and pairs great with the core camera strap. That's what I told my wife, and after rolling her eyes, and taking a good look, she did indeed agree with me.

A quick note on delivery, and probably…

Absolutely ZERO regrets!

Only had this for 24hrs. Switched from a 5.11 to this as I need a more tech focused backpack now I’m 100% office bound. This is absolutely brilliant. Love the 1/2 main compartment pockets. Good side & top pockets for other essentials. The tech pockets for the laptop, (actual paper) pad or tablet and pen/accessories etc are well thought out. Build quality is A+ the materials used, zips and the carry handle will handle anything.

The only thing it’s missing but I knew that before I brought it, is a dump pocket externally for a water bottle. However the overall foot print of the bag is perfect so I will live without it (and I don’t really need one.

The thing I’ll missing from my 5.11 backpack is plastic squeeze release buckles that are on the shoulder straps - but that is a rare AF feature on bags in general.

Simply amazing

I bought the Arkose 20L Modular Backpack without knowing what this company does for the environment, and when I saw the 5-trees-planted-note on my bag I could do no other than smile.

The quality is above top level, it isn't so pretty on the front where your back is meant to be though, but who cares anyway. Usually, I don't even write reviews, but knowing that Urth will plant 3-trees for it I couldn't resist. It is a great concept and I would highly recommend buying from Urth.

Keep up the good work Urth guys ;D
