I have been waiting for a while to get this bag as a gift but people could not take the hint, so I bought myself. The bag is perfect for my wife and I when we travel. Thanks
Almost perfect. Packing for a long trip and realize that Side pockets + a smidgen more space would achieve perfection. A little more depth (7 or 8 inches instead of 6), or extendable locking straps to get a few more inches on the top in the next iteration?
I'll buy another one if that happens!
Love the buy one, give one idea!
So happy to receive this backpack! As a traveller in need of something spacious, durable, practical and stylish I couldn't be happier with this choice. The pack feels great and has a simple design with just the right amount of pockets to keep things organized. Everyone who sees it loves it.
And equally as important, to know that this purchase is also an act of love, kindness and generosity to those in need makes me quite proud to have it on my back. Feels like love.
I could write an essay here. But I won't. Or I will.
I grabbed one of these bags a couple of weeks ago now, and it's the best bag I have ever owned. After having some (a lot!) of questions to ask Chris and the guys I took the plunge and bought the Sable in Olive Green. Best decision ever. It took little time at all to reach me over the pond here in Leeds, UK. I am a daily cycler and drummer/musician so my bag is always packed. I needed something that could hold my laptop and all my gear, whilst keeping it dry and this just lives up to every task. As many of the reviews say, it fills me with joy everytime I get to pack it. It holds up when I do cycle and has the chest strap that stops it moving at all when It's fully loaded with my gear and is extremely comfortable
I had hesitations over the lack of waist strap but since using it daily, I haven't needed one as of yet! The magnetic straps are just a dream and makes me wonder why they aren't everywhere?!
I had also seen some reviews regarding issues the front pull down straps that secure the flap over the top, I however have not encountered any sign of them loosening at all. On top of all this, JustPorter give a bag filled with school supplies to kids that need it , which is a lovely touch :)
I could go on for ever with the review of this bag, but it's pretty much a dream.
Attached is a picture of a Lego BB8 i've added, It's pretty cool.
This is it. The best one. The best bag. If you're looking for a new backpack for just about anything, here you go. Every adventure, almost any item, it's ridiculously versatile, beautiful, comfortable, I could go on. I'm going to leave society and travel the forests of the world with it, just because I know it could handle it. Maybe that's a stretch, but I genuinely believe I'll still look at this with childlike delight every time I pack it up for a new adventure, until the very end of my life.
This is a great bag. Perfect size, looks good, sits well. Excellent service. I like the product, the company, and the connection to kids in need.
I bought this bag in addition to the hazen that i have and all i can say is that they are the best bags ever. I won't have to buy another bag for a while and think these are the best bags.
Great storage, utility and looks. Even got a few envious looks from fellow passengers. Service was fantastic. I knew exactly when my product would arrive.
These kind people not only produce and sell an amazing product for a noble cause; they offered one of the best customer service experiences I have ever had. Personal touches and fast shipping. The backpack is of equal quality. My new favorite, replacing my Chrome motor barrage. Thank you very much.
Great product. Perfect size and functionality as needed. Perfect protection and really comfortable to wear. Awesome!
made a week-long trip to Ethiopia from Tennessee and this bag is great for carrying everything and keeping things sorted properly. We encountered a little rain and the bag held up nicely...if we had more severe weather, I believe it would still keep everything nice and dry. The magnet buckles are a nice touch and make things easy to open and close. I had many people ask me about my bag because of the large size and sleek style.
I use this for work it can hold plenty change of clothes all my books and the magnets are a nice touch. The side zipper to the laptop compartment works well. Very pleased with my purchase
My husband and I are both crazy about this bag - it looks sleek enough to serve as a trendy work laptop bag but has the function and design to work as the perfect weekender. We're planning on taking it with us as a carry-on for our 10 day trip to Europe this fall. High durability and water-resistance is a great bonus!
100% satisfied, my Just Porter backpack came with a handwritten thank you card and a reminder that I not only just purchased an extremely quality product, but also helped out a child in need. This company rules, and I plan on telling everyone that I know about them. Love this bag!
The Sable is exactly what I was looking for. Made extremely well and looks great. My favorite thing is probably the thought that went into the design. The location of the laptop pocket is perfect, and it holds an impressive mount in the main compartment. I've been impressed enough, that I'm probably going to buy one of the smaller backpacks to replace the one I use for work.
1/ The looks, the versatility and the quality of the Sable Rucksack is better then expected.
2/ Suprisingly great customer service.
I am super satisfied with the look, strength and versatility of the Sable Rucksack. Not to mention the great service and care from Chris.
I really appreciate the letter you guys wrote for me. It shows that young guys really care about your customers. The quality of my backpack is top notch and I'm really happy with my new backpack. Cheers to Just Porter!
I love this bag for traveling. I ditched my Mission Workshop bag, and decided to give this one a try. Really glad I did since it's a high quality backpack that is large enough fill up, but still works as a carry on for the plane. Winner, winner chicken dinner.
Great bag. No issues after a year of abuse... love that it can take a little or expand easily to take a lot. Super!
I was very keen when I heard about this backpack. It could actually fit my pretty large computer (15") and still fit other things in it too. Here the sleeve for the computer means I don't use the previous sleeve any more. And I carry it around all the time. It fits my books, my lunch box, my 1 L Thermos bottle, as well as my change of clothes when I go for a long cycle or a good sweat at the gym. The many pockets make it always handy. Because I know where my charger is, or my front and back lights, and everything in fact. It's HANDY! Small annoying point, I really wish there were reflective strips included on the backpack as I use it to cycle every day. I've already been shopping with it, and thanks to the straps and the closing system, it means I can actually buy food and store it all in there. When I go for a weekend, I fit everything in it, from an extra pair of shoes to my clothes. My colleagues always ask me if I'm going on a holiday when they see me with it - but always become jealous when they have to carry two to three bags to fit everything that fits in mine ;)
I have to say, this is the most complete backpack which I've ever used. It holds all of my camera equipment -- including my tripod, lenses and other gear -- and I still don't feel like it's taking a toll on my back when carrying it around.
I had been looking for a durable, quality, versatile bag that had a work / suit & tie aesthetic. My new Sable Rucksack (Gray) fit the bill and then some!
Love the tarp-like waterproof material combined with great padding and quick access for my Macbook. I wasn't a fan of the roll-top, rucksack nature of the bag at first, since I picked the bag mainly on brand reputation and design, but it's become very useful in increasing the height of the bag when I need to carry bigger loads.
Also, one of my big complaints for other bags is how straps seem to be an afterthought, being cheaply made and prone to rip after a few years. These are the opposite, being very cushy and also made of the thick tarp-like material of the rest of the bag; not worried about ripping here.
The magnets also are much stronger than I had imagined, very nice touch.
The Sable Ruksack is by far the most useful gift I've received in years because it provides solutions to problems I didn't really know I had.
ONE: I don't have to carry multiple bags anymore for gym and work b/c my Sable holds freaking everything... (laptop/lunch/gym bag/towel/6-pack... with room to spare.)
TWO: Everything inside stays 100% dry. This might not be an obvious benefit, unless you bicycle to/from work year round like I do. Chicago weather sucks 70% of the time so it's reassuring to know that even when it's wet, cold or nasty outside, my cargo's kept nice and dry on the inside.
The bag is awesome! Material is good, functionality is good and very spacious.
The only improvement i would add on would be a side pocket or pouch which allow easy access to bottles, be it detachable or permenent.
Great backpack, and I'm glad it's helping donate to other people
Love this bag! Just took it on a short business trip to DC and it fit under the airline seat in front of me just fine. The computer pocket and front flap pocket (for my quart sized liquid bag) let me go through security very easily. It also fit a bunch of bulky sweater outfits for cool weather.
The one thing I missed is a side pocket for a water bottle. I realized that I should have brought a waterbottle on a carabiner and it could have hooked it to the compression straps, solving the problem. But I had bought a bottle of water so there wasn't a good place to put it. I was thinking an accessory pocket that slipped through the compression straps could be an 'easy' solution. But the bag is awesome.
I just started using my new grey Sable Rucksack. The first impression is very positive. I only had it since a few days, but it definitely looks and feels very well made and designed for durability. I need it mostly for daily commuting and frequent 2-to-5 days trips, and this backpack adapts very well to both situations. It is very spacious when I need to pack it with stuff, but flattens to a convenient size when I use it for daily commuting. I love the laptop pocket, it saves so much time when flying, and makes it easy for me to quickly take my laptop out when I am on the underground train.
Tl'dr: It's what I needed, so I think it's a good buy.
My comments after using this bag for a few weeks.
1. Very spacious. I managed to fit in 1 medium-sized handbag, 1 set of formal wear, 1 shoe bag, 1 set of gym clothes, 1 medium-sized makeup bag, 1 25oz water bottle, 1 notebook, and some other necessities. It can definitely fit more stuffs than these.
2. Magnetic buckle is a good touch. May not seem much initially, but after a few uses you will know it's pretty good. It's of good quality as well.
1. A little huge for daily commute in public transport (especially during peak hours)
2. As the section at the back of the bag for (laptop and) notebooks does not have a hard backing, your notebooks may get bent due to the irregular-shaped items in the main compartment. If you are worried about this, you can place something thick (while light) with your notebook and it's fine. So far mine's ok even without a backing.
Not really pros or cons
1. The bag is heavy, but you do not feel that it's that heavy when carrying.
2. The straps might feel stiff initially, but it will feel more natural after a couple of use.
3. Because the buckles on the backpack straps are magnetic as well, be careful on escalator as the buckle might get attracted to the sides of the escalator. Just strap the buckle at it's tightest (if you are not using it) and it should be fine.
First of all, I would like to say that I like JustPorter as a company. I like the philosophy behind it and the products it makes. As for the bag, I LOVE it. It's very well made and incredibly spacious! I wish I had it for my recent trips to Canada and such. Would saved me a lotta aches and pains.
So far its been very dependable and feels nice and light on my back even with the heavy loads I regularly carry. Its completely worth the investment (and my shoulders say thanks as well). I would happily recommend this bag to anyone who travels a lot or just likes a well made bag.
Amazing product and an important cause_ I purchased the Sable Rucksack Backpack in Olive colour for my boyfriend_ I۪ll be purchasing one for myself_
Great customer service
So far so good. It's been durable and incredibly useful with its large interior. It's alarger bag than I expected when I ordered it. But, it's not bulky like most large backpacks. It works perfectly as a carry on backpack since it fits in the bulkhead. Great to use while traveling around Europe, and I was surprised at how dry it kept my stuff as I got caught in the rainin Paris for an hour. I though for sure my stuff would have some water. None. Zero. Now, if I could change this bag I'd have the straps sit tighter, but that's such a small thing that I don't even think about that too much. As compared to my other travel backpacks, this one is by far the best. It doesn't have the best features or the most pockets, but it is the best as compared to the others. I'd have to say that this is the most well rounded backpack. It's not for everyone, but if you're looking for a great travel backpack the Sable is for you.
My rucksack exactly what I hoped for - and more. Other backpacks or sacks might appear to be similar at a lower price, but in my experience, I've never found anything like this one. Thanks JustPorter for making my rucksack, which I believe is like no other available - and for giving back too. I'm been delighted with your product, your service, and your mission. I probably shouldn't write this, but I believe your rucksack is under-priced for the value and utility it provides.
The rucksack's functionality is remarkable - I can use it to carry more than any other bag I've seen or I can use it to carry just my essentials, and in all instances it has been comfortable to use. My job often requires me to carry many documents back and forth from the office, and the large main space is perfect for this. I often like to sneak away with many books at once, and the main space is perfect for this too. It was exactly what I needed for a recent weekend getaway, for my clothes and everything else. I also lug my laptop back and forth from work and the small pocket is convenient and well-designed for this. I can use the large space if needed, but if I'm in a rush to get out of the office, the small pocket is quick and easy, and in these instances, the large space doesn't feel like any extra burden. Plus, each of the smaller compartments and pockets seem designed just right for me, what I use, and how I use them - my phone, my keys, my this or that.
I also alternate with how I carry my bag. Sometimes I use my hands. Sometimes I throw it over my shoulder. Sometimes I wearing it as a full backpack. The rucksack is well-designed for any and all of these uses.
The particulars of the rucksack are great too. The magnetic clips make everything easier. The sable color and the design are attractive and sharp. The bag works for both personal use and professional casual use. And living in Chicago, I appreciate too the heavy-duty, all-weather material for the bag. It works well in sun...
This is the best backpack that I have owned.It has a padded area for my laptop (very good padding)andthe flap pocket keeps my iPad protected.It has two different pockets on the front. I use one for holding my water bottle,and the maincompartmentfor bigger items. I can easily fit 4-5 days of clothes for a trip.Apparently, this is a travel backpack and TSA Friendly, but I mainly use it on daily basis. I spend most of my day at classes, and need to carry my textbooks and notepads for my lectures. I also bring a pair of clothes for the gym and my shoes. So, this is the perfect bag for someone who needs a multipurpose bag for different things. The only downside is that it doesn't have a strap for my keys, but I just place it in the flap pocket. I never lose my keys or have to dig around for them, which is a huge time saver.
Solid, large, high quality bag. Perfect for daily use and traveling, definitely recommending to everybody!
Bonus: Chris is amazing and really cares about his mission and customers!
11/10, Will buy again
I was nervous about buying a backpack that was $200, but I am glad I did. There is a world of difference between a $120 backpack and a $200. I compared it against my Chrome Yalta, and I looked at Mission Workshop too. I can say that Just Porter really has worked hard at making a great bag. Now, Chrome makes some great bags, but when you place the two bags side by side and start looking, I started to see things like folds and stitching that was way more that maybe what would have been bare minimum. I am looking forward to using this bag on a daily basis. Can't comment on the travel aspect, but it's a great backpackthat holds my laptop, chargers and clothes. It's a bonus to have a large commuter backpack for riding my bike. On bad weather days, I can take the bag into the bathroom get a damp paper towel and get the spayed dirt off in a second. It is the easiest bag to clean which is nice.
Great job Just Porter. Not only do you guys make a great backpack, but I love the fact that you are a buy one give one backpack company. Sturdy construction. The bag can stiff, but began to be a bit less stiff over a couple of weeks of use. Like that the bag is lined inside. Ideal for commuting on my bike. Holds a ton.
Just received my Sable Rucksack Backpack in Gray. I love it! Its very spacious and stylish.
I've wanted a Just Porter since their Kickstarter over a year ago. I finally bit the bullet and got one. So, it arrives and I open the box. Cool sticker and an envelope with my name written on it. (I'll get back to that in a sec.)It seemedlarger than I thought it would.I was looking for a good size travel backpack for a weekend trip backpack or even to use when I wanted to carry a lot of stuff around. So, I bust it open to take a look. Poking, proding. What do I notice? Zippers. They work. Okay, that's a good start. Fabric is on point. You can feel that it has some weight to it, which is avery good sign of quality and durability. Alright, looking inside now. It's lined. Not a little, but a lot. It even has the sides done, this is way better than what I've seen from Herschel and Jansport. Alright, I load it up. Feels great. Comfortable, but a little stiff. Now I grab that handwritten envelope and open it up. Personal note thanking me. Signed by Chris Bahr. Who is the hell is Chris Bahr? Google it.... It's the founder of the company! Who in the hell writes a thank you note anymore? Much less the guy who started the company! Bottomline, the bag is awesome and the company deserves some serious props. I honestly believe that Just Porter is the next Warby Parker or Toms Shoes. Just buy the bag.
I have to give it five stars for me personally, since it is exactly what I wanted. I like that it's not a sport backpack that you'd find with NorthFace. Similar to Mission Workshop or Chrome. I used this as my large daypack when I travelled through Thailand, which was great because the rain was kept out by the weatherproof fabric. That's a stress saver. I also brought a smaller daypack for day use. Could I have used it during the day too? Sure, but I would have wanted to empty it out. Who is this bag made for? Definately a travel backpack or a commuter backpack for someone who carries a lot. Who is NOT for? Someone that is tiny. Someone who want a smaller backpack as a tote alternative. 93/100 score.
Nicely manufacturedbackpack with great attention to details inside. It wasn't a perfect choicefor me because of how tallthe bag is on my backI think about 19". At 5'3", it's much bigger than I'd normally buy, but it is ideal an idealart school bag.Because the bag is deep, it holds odd shaped things I need for class. It's great if you want a lot of space of cram stuff in and don't need a ton of exterior pockets. It does look nice, and a couple of students have bought the same bag since I did.
This bag is amazing! I was able to fill it with an immense amount of items. It definitely is built to last and durable to take anywhere you go in the world. Definitely a one of a kind bag I will always use if I have to go traveling especially if it comes to hikes. Well worth the purchase and look forward to more of your future products!
Will not fit a Alienware 17" gaming laptop. Great materials and a great looking bag, just can't use it.
I travel and fly international for work and this bag is perfect for those kind of trips. The Sable replaced my Timbuk2 Command TSA-friendly messenger bag. Fits a 15.4 inch laptop and camera bag/insert with much room to spare. I can successfully carry all of my electronics (laptop, iPad mini, Bose wireless headphones), cords, and chargers in addition to files and paperwork for all of my business travels. In to the aforementioned, I can fit in an extra set of clothes or shoes and jacket. The zipper and pocket design are well engineered and are intuitive.;I like that this bag design is conservative enough to carry into business meetings yet stylish (and functional) enough to use for casual trips. If I had a complaint I wish that the bottle opener on the strap were removable since for one, I carry my own on my keychain, and two, I don't think it is the most professional look in a business environment (if they notice it). I haven't seen the other colors in person other than the black and grey (my messenger bag was same color) but I think the Carbon and Twill color/fabric combo is the most attractive. Areas in need of improvement would better color/fabric options, mesh or larger drink pocket, and slightly more robust strap system (don't get me wrong they are comfortable and functional). Timbuk2 has a fantastic warranty program which is just another reason I come back to them for all my gear carrying needs.
It's kind of big. You should look at the visual refence and instagram pictures. I bought this as a gift for my boyfriend and he loved it....a very high quality backpack. He uses the bag for traveling and for daily use. Very durable and tough.
Clever backpack buckles. I think it's a well organized bag. I like the waterproof material. On par with a mission workshop or chrome industries bag. It even works as a carry on backpack. 5/5
This is a solidly made bag, and I appreciate the attention to detail that JustPorter has made in creating a waterproof, roomy, stylish addition to my everyday carry needs. In addition, I appreciate the organization using local businesses for bags and school supplies as opposed to other buy-one-give-one companies that air-drop donations that may not be needed and don't support the local economy. I am assuming the founder's experience in humanitarian aid along with his local colleagues in the Philippines informs this model.
I do have a few suggestions regarding bag's design:
- the "seatbelt" style webbing connected to the "fast access magnetic buckles" is too thin and I always have to readjust the tautness of it
- the front pockets do not seem to be completely waterproof given the zipper style
- the computer access zipper does not seem to be waterproof, although given its placement, I'm not sure this is major issue
- the addition of a water-proof side zip option to the main compartment would be helpful for quick access
- the addition of a side pocket might help when I carry a water bottle or tripod, however, I acknowledge this may change the 'look' of the bag slightly
Great back pack, nice that it is a close fit on my back. Perfect for a bike commuter.Plenty of storage in this backpack and I love the laptop area on the outside. It makes it easy to get to my laptop without opening the bag.
Great present for my son. Uses it daily for his commute. He had chose it as a present, and everytime I see him, he has the bag with him.
Perfect size backpack for heading around the city, weekend trips or international travel. I am able to pack all of my essentials and then a little more. This isn't a huge technical backpack, rather it's set up like a rectangular messenger backpack. The straps are more comfortable than my Northface, and I love the waterproof fabric. The inside is simple and lined with a nice sharp orange liner. The roll top bag portion is large enough to handle your clothes and have charger cords and my tablet in the front pocket under the flap. At the same level at a Patagonia or a Northface backpack with more of an urban backpack design. Good buy for the quality.
Great bag, it's very functional and can store a lot of stuff on it. The magnet buckles are awesome and I can pack 3 days worth of things in it.
What a great company. They had 1 bag left in stock in the color I ordered and they called me personally to give me a discount and get my feedback if they should ship or not. They offered me huge discounts and were hugely helpful. It ended up that they found the same bag in stock and sent it to me very quickly. I would absolutely buy another product from them. The bag is very spacious and is perfect for traveling.
Nice and tough material + thoughtful design. First, the buckles are really cool. Could I live with normal ones? Sure, but why? The material is super tough. I've ever seen anything like it. It's better than fabric I've seen on Timbuk2 and Chrome. The laptop pocket being able to have outside access is really a win/win feature. I would like the two front bottom pockets to be a little bigger, but it works. I can hold a ton of stuff in this bag. I am looking forward to using it as a traveling bag within the next couple of months. I will check back in afterwards.
Exchanged for the Streeter. The Sable was too large for me. This is either a travel backpack or a large backpack.
This backpack is definitely made for atallerperson. It would be impossible for me to carry this thing around. I am 5'2" and it was so wider than my body and taller than my torso. So sad. :-( It seemed very nice. I hope that they make this in variable sizes later.
I bought this for my son as a gift. He loves it, and uses it when he comes back from college.
I have only owned this for a few weeks, but I'll try to give some thoughtful commentary. What I like: Plenty of storage space. Professional looking. Laptop area gives a ton of padding. Sleek. Dislikes: Comes stiff, but it has begun to loosen. Minimal pockets. If you love a lot of pockets, turn minimalist. I'd like a water bottle on the outside. I contacted the company about if hey were going to add it in the future. They said they had tried, and it ruined the aesthetics. So this is a personal choice. I use the front pocket to hold mine, and so far no problem. One of the better bags I have used. Price and value are inline. Not a 4, but not a 5. 4.5
