Front Compartment with Magnetic Buckle
Chase is a big fan of the magnetic quick release buckle on the front compartment. It's easy one hand release is functional and feels great in your hand. He comments that the front compartment isn't limited to just being a compartment for your shoes but also a "great place to throw whatever you need to when you're on the go."
Huge Water Bottle Pockets
The expandable elastic and deepness mean the pockets will "gobble up" any drink bottle. Chase says "you won't be worried about your water bottle or shaker ever falling out" of these pockets.
Top Pocket Compartment
Chase was super stoked about the top pocket and smooth YKK zippers. These quality zippers mean you'll have no issue easily accessing your stuff with 1 hand. He also commented "I like pockets that have dimension built in, so you can load up the pocket with essentials you want easy access to".
Structure & Material
This bag holds its structure. Something important to Chase is that the bag "won't bend or morph" once it's loaded. Structural integrity combined with quality zippers means "you won't have any issues zipping with 1 hand even when the top pocket is fully loaded".
"I'm stoked with the materials, the tactile feel of the bag makes a big difference", Chase elaborates that it "feels really solid and it's going to last a long time.
Inside the main entry to the backpack is a hidden pocket. Chase suggests "this is where the passport would go if you were travelling" or anything you want to "keep secret or keep safe".
The zipper at the back of the bag allows for a clamshell opening. This makes for easy packing and access to the internal mesh pockets. He says "the mesh pockets provide plenty of organization inside the front panel".
Otherwise "the top access is perfect for if you're just grabbing from the bag or want to pull out your laptop from the internal laptop sleeve".
Chase comments that "the backpack straps are nice and wide. I like the stiffer padding because it distributes the weight well across the surface area of your body." Plus there is a "great amount of padding and breathability" and he loves the addition of the sternum strap.
Overall Chase calls the PLUS26 Backpack "an epic gym + life bag!" with great capacity for daily carry.
