The Nomadic CB-01 Wise-Walker is a day pack that's all about storage and convenience . The ends of the shoulder belts have two different sized pockets. A ticket or card can be removed from these pockets without taking off the backpack (i.e. you can keep your backpack on your back while taking out a ticket). The bigger pocket (13) is ideal for train/bus pass (credit card size) and the smaller pocket (13) is perfect for train tickets. On the back right hand side there is a hidden pocket (12) for a wallet. Its a secure pocket because it rests against your body. You can also take the wallet in and out without putting the bag down. To make it easy to put on or take off the backpack, there is a buckle on the left shoulder belt which can be fastened and unfastened. The bag also features a removable chest belt for comfort.
Dimension: 40 cm (H) X 24 cm (W) X 19 cm (D)

I love this bag. I got...
I love this bag. I got it late last year because I was tired of carrying around a small bag that didn't have room for all the stuff I need/want to carry around, and I was tired of carrying around a bag that was way too big. This one is JUST the right size, with all the proper zipper compartments and little pockets to hold my phone, journals, notebooks, a little zipper pouch I have some personal items in, two sets of keys, a pen roll, a couple of loose pens along the sides, my wallet, my sunglasses in their hard-sided case... I could go on. The black with the contrasting orange inside is extremely sexy, too. I can't say enough good stuff about this bag. It's well worth the price considering I haven't gotten tired of it yet like I do all my other bags for one reason or another. This one is a keeper!

This is a great medium-small...
This is a great medium-small bag that packs like a medium bag. Make no mistake: you will not get a ton of stuff in here. It is narrow, especially, so wide folders, big laptops, just won't go. But I got this bag because I was tired of getting sore shoulders from my messenger-style bags. This thing looks great and since it more-or-less organizes itself, your stuff stays put and accessible. I find that I can convert it quickly from a work-a-day bag to a week-end tote for outings with my three-year-old twins. The bottom pocket is especially nice for wet clothes or a change of clothes. I have also had it long enough to say it is plenty water-proof for decent downpours, even the zippers. My favorite feature is the wallet pocket. I hadn't expected to like it but it's as wide as the bag so I can keep my wallet in there plus kleenix and hand-wipes for the kids. The middle "accordion" dividers leave room on the side to stow my sunglasses case or a small umbrella. Yes, the water-bottle pockets are narrow and tight but they loosened up after a bit of use and get to be just fine so long as you don't plan on hauling any big-gulps in there. Also, the front accordion divider includes two well located but partially concealed pen loops, also nice. It's expensive, but there are lots of pseudo-tough, out-doors wannabe packs around in the US (North Face, etc.) so it's really great to have an option that is an unapologetic urban bag for office people who aren't pretending we go every weekend for extended day hikes over really rough terrain (although I can see that this bag would also be fine for that...).

Great bag! I used this...
Great bag! I used this as my daypack on a four-week European tour. It's small enough to fit inside my carry-on (cheap Euro carriers have a strict one-bag policy) but large enough to carry everything I need for a day of sightseeing. Comfortable and stylish, plus the large number of pockets make it tough for pickpockets (Barcelona, I'm looking at YOU!) to know where the goodies are stashed. Now that I'm at home, it's my go-to everyday carry solution.

Love this bag. I know...
Love this bag. I know I'm not putting my laptop in it (15" MacBook Pro) but, sometimes I throw my tablet in and I just wish it had a little more padding at the bottom at least. However I'm aware that padding always ends up making a bag heavier and bulkier and this one fits the bill, especially for day-trips or if I want to go without an umbrella. Love all the pockets all in the right place. Pricey for a bag but I have to say I haven't seen anything else similar. Nice material too, no loose threads or seams.

Absolutely porous. Everything...
Absolutely porous. Everything in the bag is ruined if you are out in the rain, even with an umbrella. Ridiculous
