You need two of the inserts to really get the most out of the bag and thag puts you at over $550. And it's heavy af at that point. The Black Ember Shadow, Arktype Dash Pack, Goruck GR1 Slick or standard, Day Owl Backpack, Aer City Pack, and the Boundary Supply Errant are all similar or better bags at a fraction of the price.
Aer City X-Pac, Black Ember Shadow or Forge Max, CPL24V2?? Can't decide
I have the Black Ember Shadow 26, the CPL24 v2, and I’ve tried out the AER daypack 2. The black ember I’ve had for the longest and used it daily, including for a vacation carry on. It’s very well made, secure, looks nice. The organization is pretty good for a bag that size.
* Black Ember Shadow 22L - potential small bag to bring along when I don't need the whole AER pack. * Bellroy Weekender 30L - the trip I take most often is 2-3 day weekend trips, so I felt I could simply take this since it includes organization for tech gear + clothes + toiletries. I also love the look of this bag, and feel like it's classier to bring instead of the AER pack when the situation calls for it.
I really want to love it! Black Ember TKS
Definitely over-engineered for my liking, but that's Black Ember. The worst thing is that they built the same damn accordion thing into their "minimal" Shadow bags. If that were removeable I would have picked one up.
Help for a tech bag! (UK)
Also take a look at the Black Ember Shadow 22 or 26 (same bag available in 2 sizes) Their whole angle is waterproof, I have one and it is incredibly comfortable, converts to brief mode. Water Bottle pocket is internal but you can buy an external add on one from them - I have this also.
