Love the bag

Already had the large size and now purchased the small one. The quality is great and use it all the time since I received it. Now waiting to buy the middle size

Cabin Zero, military, 28L : still perfect.

I already have and use a 36L military bag : convincing but sometime a little too large for my everyday urban use. This 28L one will be perfect for that, I'll jeep and use the 36L one when needing more space or taking a flight. Thank you.

Perfect bag

I can use this as a day bag, a photo gear bag or a holiday bag. I can practically live out of this bag

Perfect backpack for everyday use

Being only 1.50 metres short, the size and fit of my backpack is really important to me. Most packs are too long and uncomfortable on my back or too heavy even if they're empty. If they do fit, they are not spacious enough to take everything I need for an outdoor activity, commuting or whatever I need to do. This backpack fits my needs for pretty much every occasion. Sturdy, comfortable, spacious and lightweight. And if the bag gets too heavy, my husband doesn't mind carry it for a while because of the design and color (black).

Why didn't you make this bag before? It's just perfect, good capacity, I can carry water and umbrella outside so they not mess with stuff inside. And it's not waterproof but some small rain (or coffee cup that fell...) don't get inside. Also the straps are very good quality and it feels good walking aroung even is the bag is full

Haven't got the chance to use the bag yet but it feels super sturdy and i love that it has a pocket for water bottle. Excited to use it on my next adventure when all this pandemic is gone.

The bottle pocket is a bit small though

Great Weekender Bag

Great quality bag! Plenty big for a weekender and not too big to be an EDC. I will continue to use my 36L Classic for longer trips, but this makes a much more practical everyday bag. I continue to be happy with all my CabinZero gear.

Military 28ltr

I purchased a military 28 Ltr. I already have a 44ltr and 36ltr. The 28ltr is bigger than you imagine by the measurements, can get a lot more in as it's a quite expanding outwards. I went for the military one as it has a chest strap .Being my 3rd one I know the quality is there and anyone the uses a backpack daily I would reccomend one of these as won't be disappointed. Another reason for buying the military option the bag is very robust and with the molle you can attach lots of pouches to it ,camera,document wallet,water pouch,although it has a built in one. It's also good to wear on a hot day as the the back has a channel to let air through. Great product.

Practical and good looking!

Bought a Military 44L last year for travel use; I really liked it so I've bought a 28L one for everyday use. Padded straps are really comfortable!
