Closeouts. A classy, old-school vibe meets contemporary functionality in the Fishpond River Bank backpack. The traditional waxed-cotton exterior is lined with smooth nylon fabric and features an internal touch-fasten laptop pocket. Two external zip pockets, plus multiple side straps and attachment points offer plenty of traveling organization options.

    Great bag. I am able to fit 3 days of clothes and a laptop in this bag. Excellent cary on for a weekend flight.

    I had a traumatic brain injury in Nov. of 2016. I am enrolled in a Brain Injury Program, and needed something to help carry all my therapy paraphernalia. It works like a charm, and I have received many compliments about what a great backpack it is. I used to fly fish prior to my head injury, and have a Fishpond fly pack that I also love. Great quality and durability!

    Bought this for my father-in-law, and I keep wanting to steal it for myself! Rugged and looks great. Reputable fishpond brand.

    Trendy, clean and simple design which is appealing to the eye, this backpack is light and offers more than enough space for daily use items such as a laptop and a rain jacket. It does not feel too robust, which makes it more suited for a stroll downtown than the rugged outdoors.

    Top-loading backpacks are not the most practical, as you often end up taking everything out to find what you’re looking for at the bottom. A separate inner compartment would have been a good and simple solution to this problem. It would help distribute the weight more evenly too.

    The shoulder straps are way too soft and could have used more padding. When carried over one shoulder and fully loaded the backpack tends to slide off, which can be a nuisance.

    Has sturdy zippers, but at a $149,99 MSRP you would expect bit more value for your money.

    The waxed canvas fades pretty quickly but it is a well constructed bag and roomy. Makes a nice day pack to the river or a nice carry on.

    A great pack...I grew up with JanSport in the 70s with classic and functional packs. This is reminds me of those days with a very high quality pack that I am loving. It has replaced my carry on at the airport, overnight travel bag and daily bag to work. An all purpose backpack that will be great for an overnight trip or longer trip to Mexico.
