Suggestions for a small (~2-4L) sling bag or small backpack that can serve as a tech pouch and iPad-capable EDC bag?

Comfort

(1/5)

Excellent quality, comfortable, main compartment opens all the way, not many but well laid out internal pockets, very good protection for laptop. Stands up when placed on floor.

Commute

(1/4)

I use to have more pockets in my bag so it took some time to get use to it, but now I feel much better for my commute and travel, especially thanks to the « high-profile » limiting the depth of the pack, and so the struggle during crowded commuting. It takes some time to break it in, but it feels like it will last forever.

Zipper

(1/2)

We see this as a huge bonus and we’ve really enjoyed them on the other GORUCK packs we’ve tested. It’s just nice to know you’re making as little noise as possible when you’re, say, walking into a hostel late at night or moving through a library. (Some of those librarians are not messing around.) Plus, they’re pretty nice zipper pulls

Strap

(1/1)

” We have heard that these thicker straps can actually rub against T-shirts and create some pilling and rips, but we have yet to run into that issue. (And that’s with two years of testing the GR2, which is heavier and still has the same amount of abrasion on the straps.)

Carry-on

(1/1)

No frills, it’s a handle that works—which is kind of like a metaphor for this pack... Whoa

Size

(1/1)

I needed a larger bag for my laptop, Notebooks, and ect… Both bags are built like tanks. I use the bullet as my tool bag. Go Ruck bags sit high and tight to the back. Great fit and weight distribution
