I had the same Cannae bag for almost 6 years, and while there was nothing wrong with it, I decided not was time for an upgrade for my everyday carry. I bought the Switchblade, and I’m really happy I did. It has much more room and more compartments. The only issue I have is the color I chose, which is Coyote Brown. I feel that it’s not the right color for use with Army OCP. If I could do it all over, I would have probably ordered it in Dry Earth.
This is my first Eberlestock bag. So far, its been great. the main compartment is a good size and my IPad Pro 12.9 fits perfectly in the center divider. The little side pockets on the inside are a nice touch. I’ve carried multiple different brands of bags, and this by far is the best. Its comfortable to carry, however, the longest I’ve carried it at one time was around an hour. My only complaint is that the main compartment zippers sometimes get “pinched” and you have to use two hands to get them zipped or unzipped.
Lightweight and portable. Pockets are easily accessible. The conceal Cary pocket is the perfect size
This has proven to be the most versatile day pack I've ever owned. It is easy to reconfigure from hunting to EDC to travel. I like the Gray Man version because it doesn't stand out with a bunch of Molle straps and velcro.
Overall, I'm very glad I made the purchase.
Overall a very good pack. Only downside is that the way the main compartment zipper is designed. When the pack is full and you unzip the main compartment with the pack flat on the ground items fall out of the pack.
Awesome pack for everyday use!!
I’ve only had it a couple weeks but I usually have 30+ pounds in my bag and it feels solid
My Switchblade EDC pack is absolutely awesome!!! Its well made, thoughtfully designed and perfect for carrying day to day essentials including concealed weapon. I own several Eberlestock products including 2 Sniper Sled drag bags, a Bang Bang range bag, my Switchblade backpack as well as a number of other accessories. Everything is top notch. Their customer service is amazing. Quality is without equal. I am super happy with everything from Eberlestock!!
I was searching for a range backpack and after some consideration, an EDC backpack is what seemed to suite my needs. That need lead me to find and order the Switchblade.
I have now owned and regularly used this backpack for the better part of a year and I have almost zero complaints. It works great as a school backpack, light hiking, fishing, and range days. I was a little concerned with not like the open top lid, however after adjusting and acclimating I like it quite a bit. Very comfortable to wear for extended times, I especially like the padding on the back and on the straps. Also very well built, materials have held up well, if not still looking brand new, to some rough tumbles I have taken hiking and fishing.
-For school, there's a convenient laptop divider that is rather solid for protection and other smaller dividers excellent for folders and books. The smaller top pocket works great for pencils, pens, and odds and ends.
-For fishing and light hiking, the laptop divider suffices as a spot for a water bladder with a small opening at the top for the hose. Storage mentioned before works great for tackle and general utilities.
-For EDC and range days, the storage and organization works perfectly for ammo, spare magazines, small cleaning kits, ears+eyes, and of course the CC pouch for a pistol. I have have not used the backpack itself for EDC for a SBR or "Pistol" (thanks ATF), but could definitely see the utility. When hiking and fishing I have regularly used the CC pouch for my own pistol and damn near forget it's there half the time.
Only cons I really have is the strings for bottle storage not having an easy place to clip away for the excess string. Also, the CC pouch can be a little tricky to access at times due to how tight the pocket is, however I am happy to still have the pouch probably stow away my pistol for relatively easy access than not have it at all.
Overall, very pleased with the EDC pack would have no hesitation purchasing another pack from Eberlestock.
