Camelbak Quantico 2016 First Impressions

 Video Review now on Youtube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YQSw-UHnAWc&feature=youtu.be

The full review is available now at http://rmkoutdoors.com/rmk-blog/2016/2/8/camelbak-quantico-backpack-review or under News and Reviews.

I wanted to make a quick write-up accompanied by some pictures of my initial thoughts as there is close to no information currently available on the internet about this backpack. 

Camelbak recently released a new urban EDC line with a tactical look. The larger of the two being the Quantico which I purchased and the smaller being the Coronado. Both packs are made of 500D Cordura fabric and come with top of the line materials.

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.

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. As of today, 1/21/16 this pack is actually not even available through the Camelbak website, however, there are a few left that can be purchased on Amazon through 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.

I will have a full review of this pack when I am done putting it through its paces so be sure to stay tuned for further information.  Below are more pictures of the pack itself.
