Great Product
We ordered these as a gift for our groomsmen, and they loved them. Once they are back in stock, we'll be ordering one for us. They look great and appear to be of great quality.

The best!
I’m a nurse and I love this backpack! I use it for work! Having to not carry in a separate lunch box has been so nice. It’s pretty spacious and has so many different pockets!

I am very impressed
I LOVE this backpack. There is so much space. You can put your stuff and it includes a cooler for your drinks and food to stay cool. It’s good when I go work. I have my lunch in the cooler and my things in the other spaces. I would highly recommend.

Still good quality
Ok so I went to go check out a store around me for backpacks that will work as a cooler and something that will hold tools and notebooks and what not and I know for a fact that carhartts stuff is tuff as rocks but I do think that they need to up the size of all of the backpacks and stop playing around. If you read the reviews on all of there backpacks what is the number one thing that customers are complaining about? THE SIZE so hint hint make them bigger or how about this try and use the bag for yourself and do what we do with them and try and make it work....

Whatta bag!
What a revelation this backpack was! No more fumbling with my lunches and snacks, dropping items on my way out to the car, cluttering up my desk at work with sandwiches and apples and juice boxes strewn about, no more coworkers complaints about my apple rolling out of the fridge in the lunchroom...now, it’s all convenience and hassle-free lunching for me, now that I have a safe, cool place to contain my lunches.
Thank you, Carhartt, for making such a wonderful bag to keep my stuff in-you’ve made the world better.

Such a great combination!
This has been a life saver! I can tote around my notes, tablet, scanner, keys, badges, and a few personal items..on top of my lunch and snacks!

Stylish without drawing too much attention and durable!

Only drawback is that the top back pack portion does not effectively accommodate standard notebooks/legal pads in their upright position. A little snug but fits easily enough if item is turned on it's side.

Is there an insert for the cooler? I have experienced issues with crushed lunch...
A shopper on Jun 10, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We will not have an insert for this style at this time.
What are the loops on the straps for?
A shopper on Jan 31, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I have used the loops to carry large markers, loop safety glasses thru, or clip keys to them.
Can the top compartment fit a smaller laptop?
A shopper on Dec 1, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I put my 13" MacBook Air in its soft cover zip case and put the whole thing in the top compartment. (It took just a minimum effort to stretch corners of backpack over corners of computerese.) Then added a pretty good size hardcover book, plus my glasses case. It was heavy but all fit fine.
Does the pack have smaller compartments or mesh pockets inside the non-cooler section for small item organization? I regularly carry small items such as sunscreen/phone charger/toothpicks etc. and I’m tired of having to dig through everything else to get what I want. This looks like it might be the answer I’ve been looking for.
A shopper on Oct 28, 2019
BEST ANSWER: In the actual cooler part there is a mesh container on the top. You can easily put toothpicks, charger, etc. I use this backpack everyday to head into work and for lunches. I work on the beach and in harsh conditions and so far there’s no ware or tear.
Will a binder fit in the top?
A shopper on Oct 22, 2019
BEST ANSWER: A full size binder will sadly NOT fit. It barely pops out the pocket, but no, I wouldn’t recommend putting one in.
can i fit a hardhat in the top compartment?
Cristian K on Jul 29, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes I bought it for my son and he said yes a hardhat should fit. And he absolutely love the bag.
Will an ipad fit in the top compartment?
A shopper on May 2, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It is big enough that any regular sized tablet can if inside, I use it for work and carry an iPad with me most days.
How sturdy is the cooler bottom? Want to store my lunch in the cooler compartment but worried the weight from my items in the top compartment would crush the lunch underneath in the cooler compartment.
A shopper on Apr 2, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi! I got my boyfriend this for Christmas. And he absolutely loves it!!! It’s very sturdy as we were worried about the same thing. He is a landscaper so the top compartment does get heavy. He uses the bottom for his lunch and has not had a problem with it at all!
What is the size of the cooler compartment?
A shopper on Feb 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Length 12inches
Width 8 inches
Depth 4 3/4 inches
Is this backpack washable?
A shopper on Jan 16, 2019
BEST ANSWER: This is spot clean only.
Is there anything else holding the cooler to the bag besides the zipper. What happens if the zipper fails. I really want to purchase this but that is my only real concern. Maybe a snap clip from the cooler to the main compartment?
A shopper on Jan 15, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The cooler compartment is not fully detachable. On the back side, it is sewn to the upper part of the backpack. If you run into any concerns with your backpack, please contact Customer Service.
I've seen this item in black from another website but not yours. Is that real or is brown really the only color?
Richard G on Dec 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The bag is also available in black through some of our retail partners. However, carhartt.com is only offering it in brown at this time.
Is this backpack American Made ?
A shopper on Oct 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: THIS PRODUCT IS IMPORTED.
Will you offer it in more colors?
A shopper on Oct 12, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This backpack will only come in Carhartt Brown at this time.
Can you put ice in the cooler compartment? Will water leak through?
A shopper on Oct 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It has a zipper top. As long as you dont overfill and keep it upright its great.
How long will the cooler keep contents cold?
A shopper on Oct 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This back pack does a really good job , I work outside everyday all day and my drinks stay cold , I freeze mine in the morning and by lunch the nice and slushy.
Anymore consideration to make this in black? Required to carry a black bag for work.
A shopper on Aug 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We'll be glad to pass your feedback along.
What is the weight of the bag ?
A shopper on Jul 31, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This bag weighs 1.47 lbs.
Will the cooler backup come in black anytime soon?
A shopper on Jul 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: At this time we do not expect to have this style in black. We have forwarded this as a suggestion to our product team.
When will this item be available again?
A shopper on Jun 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We expect more stock in early July.
What is the capacity of the top compartment? Can I fit a change of clothes (shirt, socks, underwear) and an iPad?
