      Happy Dad

      Wow. Ought as a gift for my daughter who pulled off her first killa promotion. Tobacco not only sent her a brilliant backpack (it’s brilliant!) but threw in a “from Dad” note and a whole bunch a swag. A great team. A great experience. Onwards! Wm.

      Very nice product

      So far just got the rally pack but it’s already feeling very nice and durable. Doesn’t feel heavy when I’m carrying groceries or simply a few things for work. Will buy more products in the future

      More comfortable than a monkey on your back. :.)

      I usually go on small weekend trips in which I may spend the night in a hotel along the coast and this backpack is incredible in holding an extra set of clothes (& unmentionables). Very comfortable to wear while riding, roaming around and very easy to take on and off throughout the day. The backpack also seems to come up in conversations when I meet other riders. I am not a person that usually shows off but.... hey! Yet another great product from Tobacco! Dean J. 2019 Fat Boy 114 San Jose, CA

      Bombproof Sex Appeal

      Strapped this baby to the back of my bike for a trip to Vegas and I couldn’t be happier. The materials used and attention to detail are second to none. As soon as I hit the strip I was getting non stop compliments. The pockets are well thought out and everything fits with ease. Pair it with the duffel to make it seem like you have your life together. Highly recommend.

      I f$&@$& love this backpack

      Was hesitant because of the high price tag, but let me tell you, this bag is the best. I don’t go anywhere without it. I get constant complements on it, and I have not had a problem with it. If you’ve got the money, the backpack is well worth the purchase.

      A swing and a miss

      I so want to love this bag, but it just isn't fitting my needs. It's clunky putting things in it and just doesn't have the organization. It's beautifully crafted, looks great, but just too small to be useful for me.

      Great lookin, durable backpack

      I havent used it yet but im confident ill be happy with it when i do. I bought the matching duffle and i LOVE that one. These bags/packs are built to last for sure!! Totally recommend pack animal products (i bought the coat too lol)


      Great bag. Small and tough. 4.5/5 stars.

      The bag seems tough as nails. The heavy canvas will obviously be durable. I got the camo version with matching duffel bag (also small and lean) and it looks great. It is a 20 liter bag so it is small but great as a basic day or book bag. Since it is such thick canvas don't expect it to stretch. The rip stop interior lining is nice and the exterior back pocket is great for sliding a note book or small items into and keeping them handy. The exterior pockets look sleek but I wish they were a bit larger. I can barely fit some standard sized bottles and travel coffee mug. Putting anything rigid in the pockets will displace that volume inward and reduce interior bag volume. The leather and brass looks great. My main wish would be to change the back pack's shoulder straps. They are naked leather without any bolstering or padding. They leave something wanting for sure. I am going to purchase/make some leather bolsters for them for sure. An adjustable across the chest strap would have been nice as well and allow for carrying heavier items with more comfort and less shifting of the pack. The leather and canvas should wear nicely and I look forward to beating this bag up on adventures.
