Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great daypack / short trips I was looking for a daypack and also versatile enough for a short trip. I had originally looked at Patagonia for their rugged duffel bags and backpacks made from the same rugged material, but found that there weren't enough pockets for holding/compartmentalizing all my things. The Kaban definitely had the pockets I needed to separate cables, chargers, keys, and other items all while staying relatively slim and easy to access. I do wish that the main compartment was a little bigger, but maybe I should've gone for the Kabig in that case. The white exterior seems to be holding up well, holding off scuffs and scrapes with just a little bit of soap and water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable backpack that stores a lot This backpack can allocate tons of stuff without getting uncomfortable to wear. The spine support is top notch and allows for excellent weight distribution. It seems to be designed to not get in the way once is full so it's good (for eg.) for riding a bus without taking it off.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Backpack but front material wears off quickly I absolutely love the backpack, but the front space material wears off very easily. I have gone through two backpacks in a period of two and a half months because it wears so easily. I first got the white one and black marks started showing up. Then I purchased the black one thinking that wouldn't show as much but then white marks started showing up. I am not sure what I am doing because I use it to commute to work only. I really like the backspace which is why I am giving it three stars but I really wish the front material was more durable.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Top notch storage but scratches easily I'm a person that loves minimal design and takes pride in taking care of my belongings. The bag is super practical and addresses all my storage needs. Absolutely no issues in this area. The one thing that really disappoints is how the front material scratches. I travel a lot for work and after my first trip the outside of my bag looked like it was thrown down a hill of nails (obviously exaggerating but you get the picture). I would buy this bag again for the storage but will probably go for the camo to hide the scratches (bought the black version).

Rated 2 out of 5 by from MIsleading Image I ordered this bag based off of the images on the product page in TNF Black. I was surprised when I unzipped the pack for the first time to see a bright gold material lining every compartment of the bag when the images on the site clearly showed a black lining. I ordered the bag for both personal and professional use and needed it to be somewhat inconspicuous. While it may only be the lining, the bag opens up so wide [one of the reasons I chose this bag] that the lining color immediately dominates. So if you're like me and need something a little more subdued you may need to look elsewhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Kaban is the perfect size for a student. I originally thought the Kaban was too large with it first arrived, but it has turned out to be perfect. The bag is light weight and the straps well designed to distribute weight, so the bag feels much smaller than it has. The extra space has also come in handy several times when I need to pack clothes for the weekend. I was able to fit all my clothes in addition to my regular school supplies. The cushioned back design to allow airflow also feels firm yet comfortable by preventing my backpack from sliding around on my back and keeping my back cool when I rush from class to class.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome Backpack of the FUTURE Tl;DR - Rad backpack. Pretty comfy and has swag. Perfect amount of pockets/space for me. Just gimme more reflection. So I got this backpack to replace my longtime Recon backpack. For reals love that old backpack but its def starting to show its age so...time for a new one. At first I was hesitant to get this different style because I was used to the Recon but I'm very impressed and glad I chose the Kaban. The camo print is legit and so far it's pretty comfortable. I wear it primarily while riding my motorcycle to work and the pockets and space are perfect for my commute. Just wish it had more reflective elements on the back like my other commuter full camo Kaban does therefore 4 stars. Overall happy with my purchase, it seems quality and it looks bada!@.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect Commuter Pack I have been using TNF packs for long haul backpacking and travel for over 20 years and the Kaban doesn't disappoint. It's great for work travel and commuting (my reason for purchase), and with it's sleek compact design it's perfect for air travel. My MacBook Pro, iPad, notebooks and coat (not to mention all the various cables) easily fit with room to spare. I would highly recommend this pack to professional commuters.
