The uniquely designed S25 Cherry Bomb has two main compartments plus an outside pocket under the coffin-logo panel. In the first layer, which we call the "public" compartment, you'll find translucent slip-pockets suitable for iPhones, with a double pen slot between them, a semi-rigid document / laptop sleeve. In the second "private" compartment, you'll find another sleeve suitable for a laptop, plus the main weapon stowage compartment. The pack measures 24.5" x 11", and the latter pocket uses the full dimensions. In this layer, you'll find a nice organizer assembly.
- Includes a rain cover stowed in a pocket in the bottom.
- Removable waist belt has two zippered pockets (although our favorite way to use this pack is executive-style, with the waist belt removed).
- Total Volume: 820 c.i.
- Weight: 4 lbs 8 oz
- Dimensions main bag: 24.5"h x 11"w x 5"d
How To Properly Fit And Adjust Your Pack
I can't speak for long-term reliability as I've only had the pack for a week or so. But it does seem well made and of durable materials. I've seen complaints that it's a bit heavy, but I think it's just fine (see durable materials). If you're wondering about what will fit inside, I'm using mine for an 11.5" barreled AR rifle (not pistol) with a Surefire M600DF w/ Modlite head, Vortex Razor 1-6 on a Scalarworks mount, and an A5-length buffer system with the Law folder. It'll fit in the pack, with enough room for two mags in the internal mag pouches. I can also get it in with a 20-round mag in the rifle, but it's a squeeze. Since the folding stock folds to the left side of the rifle, I also moved my light to the left side, and farther forward on a Arisaka inline mount. Keeping the light on the right side makes it sit oddly in the pack and pushes the light against your back. Had a Cloud Defensive OWL on the rifle before the Surefire, but that sits further off the side of the rail and takes up more space in the pack and made it harder to zip closed. Hope that helps anyone who's on the fence about this pack.
I choose my mailing location to be a PO box, and no one from Eberlestock mentioned you can't mail to PO Box since Fed Ex is the carrier. I had to delay a training course, however Eberlestock sent another pack to my physical address.
