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.

Perfect backpack! I use this going in and out of work. I love that its water resistant. Fits my lunch, phone and keys perfectly, and I still have room for other things.

Works great! Seems sturdy and well-stitched.
I'm a guy and I basically bought this backpack to serve as a purse. Unless I wear cargo pants, there is not enough pockets to hold my wallet, phone, glasses case, keys, notepad and pen, pocketknife, etc. Plus I hate having things in my back pockets when I sit down and I hate asking my wife to put my stuff in her purse. So in the end, I basically needed a purse or bag of some kind to hold all my stuff. But I didn't want a full-size backpack or to have to spend a lot of money. I liked carhartt's "Legacy Cross Body Bag," but I wanted something with a full zippered closure, not just two snaps/buttons. This backpack seems about the same height and width of the average backpack, but it is definitely thinner than the average backpack. So far this backpack works great, but I've only had it a couple of months, but it seems sturdy and well-stitched and so I think it will last. The only thing I don't like about the "Legacy Compact Backpack" is it doesn't have a key ring/carabiner to clip my keys to, but otherwise its great. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a small backpack with minimal sections/pockets.

Great Backpack
Great backpack and great price. Couldn’t be happier with the purchase. Fits everything I need on my daily commute to and from work. I got the colorway “wine” and it’s even more beautiful in person. Would recommend.

Great backpack!
This is a great backpack. A good size to take on a day hike in one of your state parks. Good size to stash all you need for a rock and roll concert. All around nice bag.

Love This!
I bought this bag for nursing school, just to bring whatever I need to the hospital or classes and it works great! Not too bulky, fits exactly what I need. I also use it for hiking and camping and it is super durable.

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!

Is this bag too big for a 2 year old starting school?
A shopper on Apr 20, 2021
BEST ANSWER: I think it would be to big unless you have a very large 2 year old. I’m a woman 5’6” and it covers a good portion of my back.
Can you machine wash it?
A shopper on Mar 13, 2020
BEST ANSWER: This style will be spot clean only.
Will this hold an umbrella that's 16 in long when folded?
A shopper on Feb 19, 2020
BEST ANSWER: It might fit, but it would be tight. Length might fit, but the width of the backpack might be an issue. The backpack is rounded, not rectangular like a laptop. The top of the curve might just fit 16 inches, but further out on the curve, where the corners of the laptop would be, it is more like 14-15 inches.
Can this bag hold an umbrella? Is there a pocket for it?
A shopper on Feb 18, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Maybe one of those compact umbrellas that collapses down quite a bit. And the side pocket isn't elastic, so it doesn't hold anything especially well in my opinion. But the collapsible umbrella would probably fit in the main pocket.
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!
Does this bag have a laptop pocket?
A shopper on Aug 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, fits 13" laptop
