This won’t be my last Eberlestock pack purchase!
I bought the blue/grey version of the bag for business travel because my Little Brother pack doesn't have a laptop sleeve (have to use the radio shelf and a 15" laptop doesn't quite fit right) and can be a little big for what I normally carry with me when I travel. I've been using the F5 to go between home and work to better understand how I'd configure it for travel. My first complaint is when I stuff things into the inside pockets on the sides of the pack I have trouble fitting my folio in, too. So what I'd probably do is downsize the folio to simple notebook or a more compact folio when I travel. If the pack were a little wider, I wouldn't have this problem. Otherwise, it looks like I will also be able to fit basic toiletries and a day or two of clothes in there, too, which was another requirement I had when buying the F5. My second complaint is the same problem with all of Eberlestock's packs, and that is the cinch pockets on the outside of the pack aren't really big enough to properly hold a bottle of water, coffee, etc. The bottom of the pocket tapers to nothing, and that causes the pocket to have a tendency to pop things out instead of hold them in. It would be nice if the bottom of the pockets had a shelf and didn't taper. I think this would mostly solve the retention problem.
I love this bag
I purchased this bag for the main reason that it offers the concealed pocket for a pistol. I guess I’m spoiled by the Vertx brand design. It just doesn’t work well in this regard. I will give it to Eberlestock...this bag is insanely made. The pocket placements are great and the quality is outstanding, but I can’t justify the cost for it not doing what I need it to do.
The F5 has much heavier material than my 5.11 Rush 72 hour bag, more compact and much less tactical looking, using it for my main pack when I head to Vegas . Really like the Conceal compartment for backup to my edc.. Can’t go wrong with Eberlestock bags...
