The X41 HiSpeed II has a unique contour shape that tapers at both the top and the bottom, giving the pack an excellent close-to-the-body ride. The pack is fully compressible with pairs of side-mounted compression straps that draw the load upward to optimally position the packs contents over the wearers center-of-gravity. The X41 has two generously sized form-following pockets on the exterior of the upper and lower front flaps. MOLLE-10 lightweight webbing is used, to which you can attach conventional 25mm MOLLE accessories.
The interior features include a hydration sleeve (WX2L and WXP3L hydration systems sold separately), two document / laptop sleeves, a mesh zippered pocket, MOLLE compatible webbing, and a fold-away shelf that allows you to either segregate or combine the top and bottom interior load space. Built in 420 denier ripstop nylon. Comes with our polycarbonate Gossamer frame.

How To Properly Fit And Adjust Your Pack
Great pack, very comfortable and has a lot of space, it’s great for someone that likes to have his gear well organized and quickly accessible
This High Speed II bag is great! It's quality is unmatched by any bag I've ever owned (and that's a lot of bags made by a lot of companies), it's the right size, has lots of packing options, and is crazy comfortable to carry. I only have one issue with it, it doesn't stand up well. Because it has wonderful large openings, it is easy to load and find packed gear. This lessens the problem with it not standing on its own. I have begun hanging on a hook in the common spots I set it down and that helps add well. I think I can live with that.
Love the pack, but it seems to be missing the strap keepers for the shoulder straps. Maybe it doesn't come with them?
I was looking for a mobile office to go between home and work and something that would hold 2-3 days worth of clothes + my mobile office for when I have to travel. The document sleeves will hold two laptops, but they aren't well padded. On the other hand, I've never had an issue. When traveling, I usually have 1 laptop, a power brick and bunch of video cables and other accessories for the laptop, a folio, other "junk", and 2-3 days worth of clothes and toiletries, and it all seems to fit. I'm not entirely satisfied even though I can't describe why not. I think I'd like to try one of their other packs with document sleeves because it may have a better arrangement of space and pockets specific to my needs. But I'm not going to buy another pack just to test this out :-)
I purchased this backpack to carry all of my travel stuff while flying for work. I am able to fit my laptop, clothes for 2-3 days and toiletries with room to spare. It meets all of the carry-on requirements. If you commute, you need this bag. I use the larger Eberlestock bags for hunting and hiking (Blue-widow)
