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 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 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 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.

The Nomadic CB-01 is such a wonderful backpack. I stuffed it with a lot of stuff from gadgets, sketchbooks to painting materials and after all that the bag still felt extremely light. This backpack is amazing, comfortable and very stylish. Looks small but can carry a lot of stuff. Please restock this backpack in the black colorway JetPens, I would love to own another.

Just so you all know, this bag is most certainly ***NOT*** made from the nylon that parachutes are made of, as claimed in one article I just read. It is made out of standard packcloth and heavier grade nylon. Parachutes are made out of (typically) F-111 rip-stop nylon and several other types...none of which are used in the making of this bag.

Just wanted to clear up the misinformation on this bag here.

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