Standard Issue Backpack from The Brown Buffalo Review

A simple bag with some modern upgrades and excellent materials that will stay useful for years to come.

  • Excellent materials — DWR coated 525 ballistic nylon cordura, YKK aquaguard zips, excellent feeling straps… the guy mentions the THREAD he’s using on the info page. I like that!
  • I love the straps, very comfortable, very quality feeling. And I love that there’s a luggage strap.
  • It’s a bigger bag, 25 liters, with two tall compartments, one outer pouch.
  • However, I do not like  the lining on the inside of the bag! Feels too thin to me, bag bunches up, hard to get laptop in, etc.
