Legit my favorite bag that I own. I use this for anything. I use this for traveling, for when I go to the gym, and even grocery shopping (since I hate using tote bags) Also, it's even better that t doesn't break my back!
Bag is simple and made with great, durable material. The inside is a clamshell and the inside isn't overly complicated which allows me to customize my daily carry in different ways. I use pouches! So I can mix match. Top notch bag.
This is my first review I am normally just a customer. I wanted to say how happy I am with my new purchase of the CPL 24. I have every bag out there and previously settled on the GR1 as my everyday work bag and GR2 for interstate travel. The CPL 24 is in my view better it is less military something I get a lot of comments on at the office. The build quality is first class as is the design and layout of the pockets and handles. Thank you!
This bag is does its job very well. A large compartment and simple organization really let me organize my bag the way I want. It really is my favorite bag now.
I'm currently in the middle of my first trip with this bag, a 10 day jaunt across 3 cities, Boston, San Antonio and San Jose. I like that when the straps are pulled in, and the side handle is used, it looks very much like a briefcase, and will generally fit into office environments, but the straps, when deployed, fit great. Also, it's a great size, small enough that I can fit it under any seat,, but big enough that I can fit a lot into it, my blazer folded up great inside, and I was able to bring a minimal set of clothes with me while I checked a second bag. The one thing I'd consider changing is the laptop compartment. Up at the top it gets very deep, which is sorta nice for sticking a coat into, but it's slightly hard to really use because of how it's at the top and not the bottom. Either way, great bag, and I look forward to getting a lot of use out of it!
