    Rain Defender®

    Rain Defender®, Durable water repellent—water beads up and rolls off.

    Rain Defender® durable water repellent garments are just as functional and comfortable while fishing, hunting, working, or standing on the sidelines at a football game in a sudden November rain. Water will bead up and roll off your sweatshirt, jacket, overalls, pants, and more, so a little rain won’t stop you from finishing the job without changing your gear.

Great little day pack
I've been using this as my daily for 6 months in tan.

Daily Carry:
13in macbook pro
2-3 composition books/notes
Down jacket (uniqlo)
1 swell water bottle (slim ~2.5in diameter)
3 pens (only pencil or bic pen fit in the slots)
1 RFID badge in the front pocket
Small wallet, 3oz hand lotion keys, ear phones & inhaler in the top pocket
1 20mA battery back
Sunglasses in case

Pretty impressed on what will fit in there, the jacket packs very flat. I don't think a mens hoodie would fit.

Everything about the design is great. I am very disappointed this is a synthetic fabric and not canvas. I would buy another if it was black or tan canvas.

@Carhartt please sell me one!

Love This Backpack
The backpack is light weight and not bulky. Carrying this is much easier than most backpacks.

Great small Backpack
Im a diesel mechanic and it holds everything I need to take to work, It looks small at first but I was surprised at the amount of things I was able to put on the pack and still be comfortable. The only complaint is that I wish the pen pockets in the front where alittle wider not all
Pens, sharpies fit.

Great Compact Backpack (Not too Big or Bulky)
Yes, this is a 'compact' backpack...it is not big or bulky, a perfect size if you are looking for something smaller than the other backpacks in the lineup. Keeps things nice and dry inside. Very nice pack!

Great compact backpack
I use this for my landscaping job. It's great for carrying my lunch, pruning tools, water bottle. I wish the front pocket had a zipper to hold things securely.

As described, although admittedly there isn't much of a description!
My mini EDC bag. Like so far, but I'll fill in a few additional details.
- Front pocket is small; about the depth of the front zipper; perhaps 2-3". I have a small flashlight, tissues, and sanitizer in it with some room to spare. The things I prefer to have immediate access to.
- Main compartment has a thin divider attached the rear portion of the back; hence their reference to a tablet-sized device.
- The mesh water bottle pocket isn't mes, it's the same material. Not a downside, just a fact.
- Water bottle pocket fits a standard 16 ounce bottle - nothing bigger. No S'well, Nalgene, etc. That's okay though - the pack is small enough that a larger bottle would be awkward looking.
- front pen pockets are very tight - exactly what you'd expect by looking at their images.
- I got the wine colored option - and I was worried it would be a bit too bright, but I'm happy with the color. Yes - it's a faded purple, but doesn't stand out too much (IMO).
I expect plenty of miles out of this one.

Great (small) backpack!
Really like it -- the smaller form factor is perfect for weekend outings out in the city.

Where exactly is water bottle holder, I can't see it???
A shopper on Nov 7, 2019
BEST ANSWER: when looking at the back pack its on the left side. The zipper goes from the bottle right to halfway down the left side ending at the bottle holder.. It is slim and will fit a plastic bottle or a swell water bottle. Soda can may be too wide.
Does a 15” laptop fit in this bag? How much does bag weigh when empty?
A shopper on Nov 6, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I think so. I fit my Lenovo X1 carbon in it easily I think that's 14" and it fits fine. The bag is extremely light when empty. You can roll it up
does this fit a 13" laptop?
A shopper on Sep 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, 13inch mpb fits fine in the laptop pocket. 15" mpb also fits in the bag and zips but will not fit in the pocket.
Does a standard size school binder fit inside?
Evan D on Aug 14, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi! No it does not. I can only fit my lap top and a few Manila file folders. They are a snug fit. But perfect for me. Hope this helps!
