The Able Carry Daily Backpack, Slim, Reliable & Well-Designed
Hong Kong-based company Able Carry has kept it simple and efficient with the Daily Backpack, smartly designed to withstand the varied demands of everyday carry. The product of a successful crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter, this sleek and minimalist pack features an immaculate, discerning build that utilises premium materials balanced with a tight bespoke A-Frame system to minimise sag and bounce while on the move.
The Deep Black version of the Able Carry Daily Backpack achieves its sleek exterior with lightweight XPAC51 fabric which features the X-Grid with polyester firm backing for superior waterproofing and reliable structure, as well as a surface layer of 500D Cordura Nylon for added strength. Other colours feature a 1000D Cordura Nylon, although both result in the same seamless, refined look that maintains perfect structure and subtle form, while also keeping cargo safe and protected from the elements thanks to a durable water-repellent finish.
The aforementioned A-Frame system is the pack’s hero feature, keeping cargo feeling secure at all times and retaining shape even when the 20L capacity is pushed to the limit. Exceptional comfort can also be expected with the wide-cut, contoured and padded shoulder straps complemented by beautifully crafted back panel ventilation cushioning and an adjustable sternum strap. All of this works together to shift weight off the shoulders and ease the tension in the seams of the bag, literally taking the load off for all-day carry.
The system’s loops are strategically placed across the bag’s exterior, the ones at the top also doubling as accessory loops to attach onto certain pieces of gear. Carry is also versatile with a heavy-duty padded haul handle at the very top of the bag, thick and sturdy but soft and comfortable.
This is a top-loading backpack, so strong and reliable YKK zippers reveal the spacious main compartment which has several different compartments, all well-planned to offer flexible storage solutions for everyday essentials.
Behind the primary space, ideal for large items like jackets, pouches and flasks, you’ll find a zippered mesh compartment for flat items like notebooks. Behind this is a padded laptop sleeve that can accommodate up to a 15” laptop or tablet. On either side of the sleeve is a pen loop for easy access to writing material or a stylus. On the other side of the main compartment you will find a small slip pocket for items like headphones and sunglasses, suspended right next to a zippered compartment for other accessories.
Toward the top of the main compartment is a velcro pocket which opens up to the back panel, giving you the choice to remove it in case the panel is too firm. Though it may be hard to spot at first, there’s also another velcro pocket up here, super discreet for smaller items to be hidden in plain sight. An internal key leash is also provided so you can secure your keys and keep them in one spot.
Another discreet compartment, separate to the main cargo, is found just above the shoulder straps, shallow and zippered for perfect storage of any items you’d need to quickly access on the go, such as a phone or wallet.
Students or workers who need a reliable and well-designed bag for their daily carry essentials will benefit greatly from such a seamless bag as the Able Carry Daily Backpack. With a robust build, low-key style, and tightly controlled load, the Daily Backpack excels as an everyday bag that can keep pace with changing needs and environments while keeping everything safe and secure.
