Designed with every day in mind, this bag is perfect for a commute or a day trip outside of your hotel.
- On your back.
- On the front or back of the 42L backpack w/g-hooks
Overall it is very useful fora bare essentialls day/tech bag The only issue I have is the unclipping straps, I had to ad some tape for how easily they detach. I'm not opposed to day bags having a briefcase mode, but it might be good to have some spring clips so they only detach when you want and need them tucked away
Hi! Thank you so much for the feedback and great idea!! I will be passing this along to our team! -Caitlin
The pack looks small on the outside but has plenty of room for everything I need to go about my day. Chest strap is weirdly high, and the buckles that hold the shoulder straps occasionally fall off when I'm not wearing the bag, which is a minor annoyance.
Hi David! Thank you so much for the feedback! We truly appreciate it and are glad you've been happy with your day bag! -Caitlin
Loaded this daypack during a trip to Pike Place Market in Seattle. Loved it! Super comfortable!
Xanthea! What a fun place to visit! That's so sick!! Glad you enjoyed your bag. :D -Caitlin
This bag initially looked like a great buy. The construction is very good. It seems durable and the compartmentalization is great. I really like that the bag will lay flat when open. I like that there are multiple ways to carry this bag. I like that this bag is carry on approved. I will have to return this bag though. The bag is actually larger than I anticipated. The pictures online are deceiving. I have 20L bags that have a much smaller footprint from deuter and osprey. My main issue is that there isn't a way to change the height of the chest strap easily. The placement of the chest strap that the bag was set up with is too high. the chest strap sat right under my neck on my collarbones. The elastic on the chest strap makes it too thick to force into the loop of the daisy chain. The shoulder straps also don't cinch down enough to be close to my body or use this backpack ergonomically. This backpack and I'm sure the larger backpack are made for the average sized man. It is not made for smaller people. For reference, I am 5'2" and I typically wear extra small shirts. I am not sure what Gravel tried to ship my bag and carabiner in, but it was not secure and my package was tampered, opened, and I did not receive my carabiner.
Hi Christina! Thanks so much for the feedback! Sorry your bag was not a better fit for you! Also please reach out to us at email@example.com so that we can get that carabiner to you! -Caitlin
This is the my second purchase from the Gravel product line. And I’m extremely satisfied with both. The 11L travel is absolutely everything I had been looking for in a daily carry bag. Very spacious yet still sleek with amazing quality. My first purchase was the Explorer Slim Toiletry Bag also and awesome product perfect for myself. Only regret is I misjudged on sizing and should’ve went the Plus, but overall I’d give both products 5 stars.
Hi Dan! Thanks for your detailed review! We are so STOKED that you have loved your gear so much! Also, yes, the Slim is very minimal. It's sometimes nice to have the option to use the Slim OR the Plus for different occasions! -Caitlin
