Rated 4 out of 5 by Berto from Awsome pack with one bad design flaw I really love the pack, it feels good on the back and well designed.Just big enough to carry all my daily stuff. The layout of the inside of the pack works well for organizing. Love the molle webbing and other sections on the backpack for attachments. There is one flaw that brought it down to 4 stars. The convenient open pouch on the back is good until you have to use the backpack in the rain. Pocket full of water!!! Since I have electronics in my backpack, the water starts to soak up in the material leaving the inside of the pack soggy. Thought about cutting my own drainage for the pouch but I don't want to ruin the integrity of the pack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Steve4311 from Best Bag ever Had his bag over 2 years used it for school carrying a laptop and books and it is perfect. Holds everything I need and is made out of some pretty tough stuff. I also used it as my hunting and camping backpack just because I liked it so much even though it really isn't meant for it but it still did amazing. The only thing I wished it different was that you could add a spot for a water bladder. Im also in the Marine Corps and compared to my other bags that are given I prefer this bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Great EDC I purchased this pack as a new and improved EDC pack. I'm glad to say i'm presently surprised at how much I love it. It has alot of compartments with plenty of organization tools in them. There is so much to love about this pack that I will just list me dislikes.. 1. Color Selection - Why was Black not offered as an option? The best color to get to avoid bringing attention to yourself is the Stone. However Stone colored MOLLE gear is extremely hard to come by, Black while being even more inconspicuous would also open up the options for MOLLE accessories. 2. Sternum Strap - Sternum straps are great in certain situations but I feel they should only be included if hip straps are also included. Without hip straps I find the sternum strap to be a waste. Some people might like the sternum strap but for my personal use it is a waste. 3. Water Bottle Storage - The fold flat water bottle storage is a very nice and neat feature, however it is just alittle too small. I carry a Chute 1L bottle and it is an extremely tight fit, I was hoping to upgrade to the Chute 1.5L to carry more water however that will not be possible. Other then these three issues the pack is great. The build quality is superb and completes almost everything someone would want out of an EDC pack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tossman from Awesome Pack This is a great bag. Durable and comfortable, the build quality is really good which is important to me since I hate buying new bags all the time. This one will last. I also have a lot of shoulder and back issues and this bag is comfortable all day which is far from what I could say about my old bag. I also love the bottle holder. Mesh holders always stretch out and look trashy after a few months, but this design takes that problem away. I also like the tablet holder, I take that more than my laptop so it’s nice to have a dedicated slot for one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Great EDC or School bag Who it suits - The tactical style bag lover who wants a great way to carry all of their EDC items plus tech in way that stands out from the normal backpack. Who it doesn't - Anyone who needs a large EDC backpack or anyone who plans on using this back on long hikes. Camelbak recently released a new urban EDC line with a tactical look. The larger of the two being the Quantico (23L) which I purchased, and the smaller being the Coronado. The Olive and Stone colors are both made with T30D X T600D polyester while the Black multicam option is made with 500D Cordura. I originally found these packs on Carryology's coverage post of the Outdoor retailer Summer 2015 and ever since I have been checking in with Camelbak to keep up with their release. I purchased my Quantcio from Amazon sold by Camelbak. After opening the package and inspecting the pack, I could feel the quality that I have come to expect from Camelbak. I have had many hydration packs throughout the years from Camelbak but never a dedicated backpack until now. I feel that I am partially drawn toward this pack because it resembles a Goruck GR1, which is not a bad pack to share looks with. When purchasing this product I was under the impression that all of the color options were made of 500D Cordura however that is not the case. The stone color is made from T30D and T600D Polyester. Upon learning this I was very disappointed as all of the bags in my lineup are either made of 500D Cordura or 1000D Cordura. Seeing that Amazon has a great return policy I will be exchanging for the Multicam version of the pack. "Mollee webbing for external attachments" Other then the lack of the Cordura this backpack is a serious new contender in the quick growing military style EDC backpack market. As mentioned above the Quantico takes queue's from Goruck's GR1 lineup. On the front of the backpack there is a full panel of Mollee webbing for attaching compatible pouches and accessories. Behind this Mollee panel there is a front stash pocket that has no way of closing. However, I found this pocket to be extremely useful for grabbing items quickly while on the go. Above the open stash pocket there is a fleece line tech or sunglass pocket that is large enough to fit my iphone, keys, and wallet. On the bottom of the backpack there is a smaller pocket that houses my Esee 4 and a rain cover. Upon carrying this bag over the past few weeks I have noticed that there is a a dedicated pocket for everything you could think of, which is a nice feature compared to Gorucks line of products or other similar style bags. If you open the next zippered pocket before the main cargo space you will be greeted with a highly organized panel. This pocket has room for all of your pens-pencils along with slots for business cards and a large zippered pocket that runs across the bag. This pocket is great for chargers, external hard drives, and other tech. There is also room at the bottom to store any other items. Next is the main compartment of the Quantico. This room is where I keep my DSLR in a GR2 field pocket, a journal, and other large items like a jacket, or gloves and a hat. This pocket can easily fit everything needed for a full day at school or the office. There is one smaller zippered mesh pocket that can house smaller items you don't want getting lost inside. On the back panel of the bag there is an sleeve for documents or binders. "One of the best laptop sleeves in a tactical style backpack" The Quantico has a fully padded laptop sleeve that will allow storage of a 15-inch laptop and an Ipad. I recently bought a Tom Bihn Synapse 25 that I have been using for about a month now and absolutely love. It has turned into my EDC bag in every aspect. However, it does lack a fully padded laptop sleeve and therefore when I do carry my Macbook pro in it I can't help but think twice. The laptop sleeve is really where the Quantico shines and separates itself from the tactical bag norm. I can confidently say you will have no worries when carrying a laptop and an iPad in this sleeve. The shoulder straps are nothing short of perfect. They have just the right amount of padding and form to make carrying the bag a breeze. The back panel is also padded and made with mesh to help with breathability. The shoulder straps come with a sternum strap to help with heavier loads. On the right side of the pack there is a deployable water bottle sleeve that can hold a Nalgene. The sleeve does a great job at staying low profile when not in use. On the opposite side of the Quantico there is a smaller water bottle slot that can store smaller items as well. The bottom of the backpack is very padded and pairs well with the thick grab handle at the top of the bag. The Quantico does a good job at holdings its form even when not loaded out and even more so when fully packed up. I have had 25lbs in the pack and the shoulder straps and back panel did a great job. + Very reasonable price tag Padded laptop sleeve Molle webbing for attachments Great organization Padded shoulder straps and back panel Plenty of pockets for all your gear Camelbak Got your back Guarantee - - Stone and Olive should be made with 500D Cordura -Hard time standing up alone due to slanted bottom -Zippers are on the smaller side

Rated 5 out of 5 by MEROST from Maybe the Perfect EDC Backpack I have lots of different packs, including several Camelbak packs. I'm always in search of the "ideal" backpack for EDC, travel, etc. I have/had lots and lots of packs. Up until I purchased the Quantico, the Camelbak HAWG was probably my favorite, but it lacks a water bottle pocket, and dedicated laptop compartment. I thought I'd try the Quantico and boy am I glad I did. It's about the perfect size and weight for EDC and carry-on travel. Has the perfect amount of internal and external organization and pockets. It's not quite a beefy (thinner webbing straps, lighter zippers, and smaller buckles) as the other Camelbak military packs, but I have no reason to think this thing won't hold up for years of abuse. It's also exceptionally comfortable!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dezemberr from TARDIS Backpack I swear that this thing is a TARDIS as it holds so much. My main complaint is that I wish the zipper for the main compartment would close on the opposite side, rather than the side where the water bottle holder is. It's rather annoying to try and unzip the pack when you have a water bottle there, especially if you're using a larger bottle. More colors would be nice, though I'm happy with the grey color. A lower price would be very nice, though I think it's well worth it for the durability and space, especially in comparison with other backpacks/their costs on the market. I will note that I have large breasts and I was not able to use the chest strap. This isn't a big deal to me, but I figure it's worth noting. Also, my husband felt that the back was a little too flat for his liking.
