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.
