Comments about SealLine SealLine Urban Backpack:

in the begining we noticed how uncomfortable the backpack straps are, behing your neck/head area, it continuosly grabs and hangs on your skin. This is due to the "handle" built out of the backpack straps which instead of seperating, unite instead.

After 2 weeks of usage in easy, light-weight day trips the backpack BROKE. A HOLE was made by the rupture of the backpack fabric right where the seam/rubber patch holds the back-straps to the fabric. This means now I have a hole where the water gushes in everytime water slips through my back in the rain.... and I bought this for its waterproof quality! bah!

Then the WAIST-STRAP, continuosly slipped-OFF the backpack, it seems there its a factory-mistake (yet another).

I later discovered that the Urban Backpack is made in CHINA. While the other-one I own Sealline PRO back pack is made in the USA.

Conclusion: the Urban Backpack is a bad-quality, expensive backpack that is in no way value for money! I would rather buy a 10 dollar bag at a chinise-cheap store, in the end, it would last just as long!

Comments about SealLine SealLine Urban Backpack:

Upsides
It looks much cooler than all the other similar waterproof backpacks that are currently on the market.

The straps are also really comfortable and I love the convenient roll-top and strap.

Downsides
One downside to this bag is that it is quite unexpectedly narrow. Unlike other bags, the base on this backpack is actually oblong. So you're actually getting less space than you think.

The pocket in the front is also pretty useless. When the rest of the bag is full, I can really only fit either my phone or my car keys in it.

Lastly, the organizer REALLY helps with the functionality of the bag, but you shouldn't have to buy it. It should come as part of the bag.

Comments about SealLine SealLine Urban Backpack:

Great product. I got the large and it is a good size for me. You can get a good four days worth of gear in it easily. Great for kayaking trips. The only qualm I have is that the stitching holding the shoulder straps on seems to be loosening...

Comments about SealLine SealLine Urban Backpack:

I use this bag for cycling and it is the first bag I've ever owned for this activity. The bag is huge. I can fit my work clothes/shoes, school books, a couple spare shirts, an extra pair of shoes, and all my cycling gear The padding on the back and circulation is amazing. It is highly adjustable and waterproof (though I haven't been able to use it for that purpose yet). There is a nice little pocket in the front where I put my wallet and keys and phone for easy access. The only con, I would say, is that there is no organizational pouches or anything on the inside. I will get to school sometimes and have to dig through the bag to try and find what I"m looking for. They do sell a separate organizing pouch, however I think that it should be sold with the bag. For the price Sunny Sports is selling it for, it's totally worth it! REI and others are selling it for [$] Great bag!

Comments about SealLine SealLine Urban Backpack:

This is the second seal line backpack I have owned. The best review I can think of is that the first one took the beating of off shore oil rig work in the gulf of Mexico and kept my stuff dry as a bone. Their gear rocks!
