Not as nice design as my 6 year old EB backpack.

By Trailman

Comments about Gear|Backpacks Adventurer Backpack:

My old EB backpack is great, lots of space and good pockets. My old one has a laptop pocket, but it's only accessible via the top. Since I use it as a hiking backpack, I don't care about laptop side access. The new backpack has fewer pockets, only one water bottle pouch and a useless ( for me ) side access for a laptop. They took good outdoor gear and made it a school backpack. I'm afraid to use the laptop area (while biking or motorcycling as the side laptop pocket zipper may fall down and open the pocket. I would much rather havd a backpack with only a top load area, so I don't have to worry about a side pocket falling open and losing my gear out the side. I can see the laptop side useful for urbanites, but some backpacks should be available without the side zipper option.

Good while it lasted... 6 months : /

Comments about Gear|Backpacks Adventurer Backpack:

So I purchased this backpack in December 2016 for use at school (3rd year of college). I was excited to receive such a spacious and seemingly robust product. I only used it for school purposes, including carrying a few (3) notebooks and a laptop along with the daily essentials. The large front mesh pocket was the perfect space for stuffing a light jacket and the water bottle side pocket held its own. The other side pocket was perfect for holding keys and hand sanitizer. All this to say I was disappointed when I noticed the tiniest of tears of the left strap where the padding seam joined the sleeve only a month into use. I did not think much of it until I finally saw a gaping hole had formed there only six months into use. I don't know if the damage was due to it being too large for my female frame (I didn't see a women's adventurer pack available at the time of purchase) or some other "user error". Regardless, for as much as I paid for the pack (full price) I expected it to last longer than 6 months with less use than the average 'adventurer' intended to use the product. I've had $30 Jansport backpacks that have gone through more rigorous use and have lasted for several years in better condition than this pack. I ended up repurchasing a different backpack from EB (the newer women's adventurer) for the new semester that I have been satisfied with so far for the past 4 mos hoping it will last better and that this one was just a fluke.

    I bought the old model of this pack in 2014. Since buying it, I have taken my Adventurer pack to summer camps, hiking and rafting in Colorado, New Mexico, and Costa Rica, traveling around Europe, countless hours at the library and in class full of heavy books, camping with friends, and now into a fourth year of college. The bottom is just now starting to wear thin in a couple of spots from my books, binders, and laptop, and the mesh pocket for the water bottle has just started to get small holes in it. In my opinion, this pack has held up very well!

    During a typical day on campus I walk with my wallet in the side zipper pocket, a 32oz hydroflask in the mesh pocket, my 13'' MacBook pro in the laptop sleeve and at least 1 textbook with a few binders. In the smaller section and organizational pockets I have my laptop charger, headphones, a calculator, 2 pens, 2 pencils, a highlighter, paper clips and chapstick, one or two smaller books, and my journal. This has pretty much been my setup for the past 3&1/2 years and I could hardly ask for much more out of a backpack. Everything has a place and it is easy to keep the pack organized with lots of school supplies. I think this backpack is useful, good looking, and functional.

    While the pack may not be fully waterproof, it is highly water resistant. The pack is even more resistant to rain if the zippers are zipped towards the side and the fabric flap is pulled over to cover the zipper. I have walked through very heavy rain in this pack many times and normally don't have any issues with leaking. If I have the pack in the rain for a very long time, I have never had the contents get wet if I unload them after getting out of the rain. You get into trouble with the contents getting wet if you just set it down though, because the water eventually soaks through into the interior.

    Used hard for 3&1/2 years of school, travel, hiking, and camping with minimal wear and tear.
    No broken straps, no stuck or broken zippers.

    Comments about Gear|Backpacks Adventurer Backpack:

    I've had an Adventurer backpack for 4 years & I love it. I use it for an airplane carryon, hiking, going to the gym, kayaking, you name it. I bought this for my son who is a HS freshman. I have every reason to believe it will last him for several years. It's got great pockets/storage and is big enough to carry chromebook, notebooks, cross country gear, and all the other stuff he needs. Highly recommended!
