Have you checked out the Nobull Waxed Canvas Backpack or the Defy Bucktown Backpack? Hard to find a waxed canvas backpack with the right look and functionality (not too hipstery but not too Boomery, with well thought-out storage and design).

Hi, I am a problem that only you can help me. Or need a backpack where I put pants, sweater shirts, two binders, notebooks, cases, headphones, charging cables, and an MEC. Which backpack do you recommend? I ask you why I think you are the greatest expert in backpack

Got any similar bag styles in a carry on duffel that won't kill a budget? I love the old waxed canvas and leather look, but finding on in 30 liters of below $300 has proven difficult.

Topo Mountain Briefcase? Why are they naming a MESSENGER BAG "Briefcase"? If it had a FULL zipper, so you can open it up and flip up the laptop without taking it OUT of the bag, THEN it would be a briefcase. Cool bag, but not a briefcase at all.

Chase you gotta do a review on the Waterfield Bolt Duffle! It's looks just as beautiful, and has that Indiana Jones world traveled look.
Zach Fang (5 months ago)
Chase I have a few questions for you and please answer honestly. All the bags you show here all look like they just got pulled out from their original packages, so have you actually used them? If yes, how long? If not, how do you justify the opinions?
Zach Fang (5 months ago)
Chase Reeves great to know man, don’t get me wrong I do enjoy your videos a lot.
Chase Reeves (5 months ago)
Not sure why you think they look pulled out of packaging. Maybe cuz they were stacked on the floor when I was switching between what I was using. Yea, used them all! (Btw, switching between bags often is one of the best ways to learn what you really want in a daily carry). Also, I use 10-20 different bags a month for testing purposes... there’s exceptions to this, but when I get a bag now I have maybe more experience than anyone at this point at predicting what it’s going to be like to use before i even strap it on. Materials, stitching and zips are all immediate to investigate. And then it’s organization. And then it’s pack it up and carry it around for a day or two to the office (coffee shops) with long walks.

Amelia Hernandez (7 months ago)
I really wish u would use all the same products in a video and show us how the backpack looks when loaded up
Peter Kriger (7 months ago)
A feature that might be good to include is whether these bags stand up by themselves or flop over. Sometimes it is obvious, other times you are holding the bags up with one hand or the other and I'm not so sure. I may carry a bunch of things with me, and set my bag down first, will the bag stand there while unload everything else, or do I have to bend all the way over to pick it up laying flat on the floor?
Kevin J. Meyer (7 months ago)
You sold me on the Trakke Lecht! Sleek, simple, rustic, urban outdoorsy, non-tactical just what I was looking for.
Philippe Béland (7 months ago)
I think millican would have right at home in this category. Cool vid thanks!

Aram Simsar (7 months ago)
You should check out Duluth Pack or Frost River if you’re into rustic. They are the OGs in outdoor packs. If you like Filson you’ll love them.

Chase, as usual awesome review! Really expected to see the Staad by Waterfield designs (especially because that review brought me to subscribe to your channel and really showed your cool personality), but nevertheless had tons of fun watching this review. Thank you again.
Chase Reeves (10 months ago)
It would have been if I still had the bag with me!
Sarad Tomlinson (10 months ago)
I️ picked up the filson briefcase because of Chase’s original review. ZERO regrets. Looks great with business attire or casually. And is the most functional briefcase I️’ve ever owned. Previously I️ owned a couple saddlebacks... but the filson is far superior

Mulyadi Syariffudin (10 months ago)
Hey Chase! I'm one of the Co-Founders of Astray Goods Co. Thank you so much for featuring our bag! You know what!? Your comment and feedback about not being able to access the laptop from the quick access is definitely valid! Again it's a "Man! Why didn't we think of that" moment. But the good news is, our Kickstarter campaign is still runnning and we can still make amendments, and that's exactly what we are going to do! So there you go! Access the main compartment and the laptop from the hidden quick access! A feature suggested by none other than Mr. Chase Reeves! And as we speak, we will be making an update on our Kickstarter to bring up this new point. Thank you again!
Chase Reeves (10 months ago)
Sweet! Looking forward to that, Mulyadi!

Have you ever checked Saddleback Leather bags?
Misael Rodriguez (10 months ago)
That’s pretty cool. Have you seen their new line of waxed canvas bags? I’ve always wanted one of their leather bags and backpacks but where I live in Mexico it is way too hot and humid here for those imho. Thanks for your videos man. They have helped in my bag wanting journey. Just purchased a Goruck GR2 in 34L for my travels. Loved that review.
Chase Reeves (10 months ago)
Yea I have! I actually played a small role back in the day on their website. (Worked at the company who created it).

Hey Chase, do you have an affiliate link for that little Tom Bihn accessory zipper bag you keep your stuff you never want to see in? I'm using a shitty little no-name zipper bag for that stuff now and want to upgrade. That one looks pretty perfect. Would love for my purchase to kick you back some change if possible!

Ken Kinder (10 months ago)
I have a Waterfield Bolt Briefcase and I adore it. It's very similar to the backpack, but (yay!) no velcro and (IMO, yay!) not a backpack. But something worth mentioning is that the bag is HEAVY. That lovely full-grain leather, heavy waxed canvas, gold lining -- it adds up. It's by far the heaviest computer bag I've owned, and sometimes, that's kind of a bummer.
Chase Reeves (10 months ago)
Thanks Ken! Good words.

I don't know what's happening with Rickshaw Bags. They closed their retail store in San Francisco for remodeling but it's been forever with no updates. They also haven't done anything on their Twitter account in over a year. I hope they are ok.

Marian theLibrarian (10 months ago)
Mr. Reeves - I have a GR1 I used once and found the fabulousness of it a bit too heavy for my EDC, which is why I replaced it - are you interested in it? if so, shoot me a message at [email protected] It won't hurt my feelings if you're not :) this is a little weird.

Hey Chase, love some of these picks. Have you looked at any of the bags Frost River makes? They seem to have the rustic look down pat.
Michael Williams (10 months ago)
I discovered your reviews while researching the Topo Mountain Brief. Almost two years later, I love the reviews and I might love the bag even more (sorry, but the bag and I have bonded). As you said, "it's the perfect size bag...yeah!" It could use another pocket or two, but it does give me an excuse to buy a bunch of cool dopp kit bags to fill it with.

Jack (1 month ago)
Whoa, just checked them out and saw their new camera bag "The Integer". Aside from an awesome name, I am both excited I found out about it, and kinda mad because I will likely kick myself for spending $500 on a bag... Thanks....I think :-)

I bought a Filson 48hr briefcase based on your review. Love the bag, wish I would use it more. I usually EDC the GR1. It’s just because sometimes a backpack is easier than a messenger bag.

Hey Chase, I would really love if you did an anti-haul of different bags and backpacks etc. I've learned a lot about what makes bags good from you. Love your reviews!!
Angus O'Leary (10 months ago)
Picked up the Qwistion Simple Office messenger from your big qwistion review. I LOVE the thing it’s the perfect size. I can’t overpack it so it can’t get too heavy but I can fit everything I need! Business papers in the laptop compartment. Then a 10.5in iPad Pro and notebook back to back with my Olympus camera and an extra lens on the other side. The big outer pouches are used for my “need em but don’t wanna see em” stuff in one and a camera strap and chargers in the other. It’s already wearing in beautifully. Thinking of waxing it as well but not sure how that’ll go. Keep up the work chase. The channel is so enjoyable to watch!

I know it’s kinda a no-go and hipstered to death, but I kinda like my fjallraven Greenland 15l. Got it for 50$ and waxed the hell out of it. I usually carry an iPad, some mushroom coffee and actual paper in there (for times when I don’t have to go to the office and rather get some study time in)
Chase Reeves (10 months ago)

Jason Maynard (10 months ago)
Another excellent video, Chase! I have the Topo Commuter Briefcase, which is very similar to the mountain briefcase. Love that I can carry it as a backpack, and the handles are wrapped in leather, unlike the mountain one. Feels great. I just used it as my only bag for a one night trip. Plenty of room. The outside pocket issue (lack of organization) I solved using a Cocoon Grid-it organizer. Worked great! Held a charger, cable, battery back-up and kept them to one side so I could use the other for stuff I needed on the plane. Try it out!
Chase Reeves (10 months ago)
+Jason Maynard great idea on the grid-it! I haven’t used one of those yet, and I’m not sure why.
