What can I say?
I first came across TOPO close to a year ago during my search for a good daypack that had the qualities of a backpack and the qualities of a messenger bag - not too childish, but practical at the same time. THIS WAS IT. I had tried everything, vintage boyscout bags, swedish military bags - literally everything. It was not only beautiful but equally comfortable, and - even a year later - I still get complements on the bag.
It is 100% waterproof. I have spilt water in the smallest compartment and not a drop moved out - my computer was spared an untimely soak. Every piece of it has not worn a bit , and even when one small piece of the bag broke (due to my negligence) the company replaced it for free.
Worth every penny.
