I always like buying...
, August 25, 2012
I always like buying things from JetPens (pencil cases, bags) because there are
a lot of nifty handy pockets to sort your items and that goes without saying for
this bag and a lot of their pencil cases.
One thing I would be wary of is that I own a 15" MacBook Pro with a hard snap on
case, and I have a Neoprene sleeve as well. This VERY snugly fits my MacBook Pro
with the case on (I refuse to put it in the bag with no case whatsoever, need
the protection), with nothing else in it because I wanted to try the fit as soon
as I received it and took it out of the box.
I'm almost sure if I had the snap on case on my laptop, and the Neoprene sleeve
on, that it probably would not zipper all the way, or be EXTREMELY snug. It's
already super snug with the hard case alone, but it's okay. The bag is a good
size and I'm not going to want to cram the world into it.
I'm going to like that the bag is waterproof, sometimes I forget an umbrella.And
it shipped ridiculously fast. Ordered it under a few days to a week, and it came
literally I want to say 2-3 days after with standard free shipping over $25.

I have been looking for...
, August 26, 2012
I have been looking for a slightly bigger backpack than my Maxpedition Pygmy
which at 20L is just right for everyday carry but is just a bit small for all
the stuff I carry for sketching; A4 Molekskine, 9x12 watercolor pad, watercolor
kit, 4x6 sketchbook, full-sized headphones, etc. The WL-25 can definitely handle
all that with room to spare. The top outer pocket can just fit my Kindle along
with a 4x6 sketchbook. The lower pocket is shallower so I use it for flat
things. So far my only complaints are the lack of zipper pulls on all the
zippers (they are on the three main compartments) and the sizing of the backpack
straps being a bit narrow - I have to let the straps out quite a bit or else the
pack sits too high on my back. Things I love: the orange lining (I hate black
interiors), the light weight, well thought out pockets and lots of them. I
took it out for a bike ride tonight and it seemed comfortable even fully loaded
so I am happy with it. And yeah, no way I would put my 15" Macbook Pro in this.
It might fit but only without a protective sleeve and the pack has no built-in
protection for a laptop.
| When my old backpack...
, November 11, 2012
When my old backpack broke I inmediately turned to JetPens to look for a new one
- I first got the
Nomadic WR-08 Wise-Walker A4 Shoulder Bag (which is also really good!), but I
usually carry too many things for a shoulder bag...so I got this one and LOVED
When I first got this backpack out of the box it looked pretty small so I wasn't
sure if all of my things would fit inside, but it turns out that it has a lot of
space! The only thing I have problems with is a Letter/Legal folder that I use -
it fits, but really closely. I think an A4 folder/binder would fit perfectly in
here! it has two big compartments, which gives you a lot of room; I usually
carry a folder, a notebook, two sketchbooks, my pencilcase (a Nomadic PN-91 Top
Open Pencil Cases), a small tablet, textbooks and sometimes even a sweater or
hoodie. I use the side pocket to carry my IDs and bus card (which makes it easy
for me to access, yet still hard to get stolen), the "net" side pocket for my
umbrella or a water bottle, and the two front pockets for my purse, calculator,
pendrive and other small things. The lower front pocket has little compartments
inside so its easy to organize things in there.
Nomadic makes the most organized bags I've ever seen, everything is always at
hand and easy to find. Now I use this backpack most of the time, and the
shoulder bag when I'm carrying less things. I wouldn't be overreacting if I told
you this is the best backpack I've had so far!
| Not really a review,...

Not really a review, just a question.
Why is this bag larger, yet cost less than the other Nomadic backpack? (the
other being $91 i believe)
Just curious. I like/want both (from what I see on screen). But, I'd just like
to know before i make a purchase if there are any "real" differences that would
affect the price this way.
