Outpost Black Nylon Large Backpack by Korchmar is rated
Rated 5 out of
Expected to last for decades
I keep bags for a long time. My previous bag from Eddie Bauer had a suede bottom and an excellent pocket layout. Over more than two decades, this bag was hiked through Europe, Asia and the United States. The zippers are still functional but the Nylon is thin and I’ve outgrown the bag.
The Allen Edmonds bag is an excellent upgrade. Quality craftsmanship will ensure the bag looks good for several years. Zippers and buckles are top notch. The bag will stand upright by itself. It has the right number of pockets to be useful without losing track of where things are. I appreciate the heavy nylon fabric.
Some potential gaps include the outer pocket is too small for wallet or passport; however, valuables would be safer in the inner pocket. It does not have a waist belt, but I don’t normally carry a heavy load.
I could have bought a lower cost bag, but the AE bag comfort and style will suit me for the next decades of use.
