I spent a few weeks conducting an exhaustive search for my perfect backpack. I was looking for something that combined the organization benefits of a laptop backpack with the features of a technical backpack. The Paladin came out among the top candidates. I love the look, the many interior pockets, the durability, the size, and the laptop sleeve accessibility. It would be perfect if it had a more substantial hip belt and longer water bottle pockets along the side.
I would recommend this product.

This is an initial review, I just got it, and am excited to get out using it! Construction is top notch, no loose stitches, untrimmed material. All the quality you should expect in a product is there. Also, attention to details, like the pull tabs at the zipper points of all the way open on the main pouch; makes it so much easier to shut the lid!
This thing is roomier that it advertises, and for a "daypack" you could easily use this with a lightweight set of gear for 2-3 days, at the least. It fits great, is easy to adjust, and holds weight quite well, though I haven't put 20-30 pounds in it... Yet!
Appearance is spiff, attractive and not a lot of extra hanging off. The side entry laptop pocket is HUGE! It runs the full top to bottom of the pack, as does the zipper for it, which also nestles into a cover when shut, so rain doesn't enter at the zip end (it is at the top end of the pack).
I am super impressed, and plan to give an update when I have had some time to really put this pack through it's paces!
I would recommend this product.

This backpack is the truth! It is perfect for on and off the mountain with all the features you would expect from a quality piece. I love the side access compartment for a laptop. Important to note: it does fit a 17" MacBook Pro in the side compartment.
I would recommend this product.

I picked this pack because it was the perfect size, had lot's of individual internal pockets and could fit in the overhead bin on an airplane.
The overall construction is the first thing you'll notice with this bag. It's rugged, technical and will last me years to come.
Perfect for biking or heading out on the trail. You won't be disappointed.
I would recommend this product.
