Rated 2 out of 5 by from Go with REI Flash Pack! I bought this bag on "final sale" from another retailer and I'm sorry I did. Despite having Filson's standard great materials, this is just a poor design. My wife has an REI Flash Pack that surprisingly puts the Filson to shame, especially for the price. In short, the straps are garbage. Carrying much more than a beach towel will cause the straps to cut into your shoulders. Second, no protection from the rain, which for a Seattle company, is strange. Again, the REI equivalent at least features a small rubber flap, which protects your gear in a storm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great smaller bag. You buy the bag for a purpose. Mine was beach days, short hikes, and one night trips. This bag has been great to me for the 8 months I’ve had it and is very well made. Like stated below it’s not waterproof but if you wanted waterproof you could have read right on it that it’s not waterproof so review it based on its design not on what it should have been.

Questions & Answers

Is the only way it closes with a draw chord?  It would seem water could get in the top.  I am looking for something for a 15 inch laptop.

Asked by: mlrtofu
Yes, the drawcord is the only way to close the top of the bag. There is not a lap top sleeve and there is no protection from the rain.

Is the upper-outer exterior as water repellant as the base?

Asked by: Fill
​This pack is water resistant in the body and water repellant in the base fabric.
