29L / 65L Expandable Cargo Pack
The Vandal backpack features a water-resistant main compartment which can be used in either “roll-top” mode, or in the traditional “flap-down” configuration. A key feature of the Vandal backpack is it’s ability to quickly double in size from 1,800 cu.in. to 4,000 cu.in. when needed for extra cargo carrying capacity.
The Vandal also features multiple weatherproof compartments, urethane coated zippers, waterproof materials, and a carbon fiber reinforced internal frame suspension system. Front zippered pocket fits most 15in laptop computers or any tablet, a 17in laptop can fit in the rear rolltop compartment. Made in the USA with a lifetime warranty.
I feel like I am doing the bag a dishonor by even calling it a backpack. It is much more than your average run of the mill bag. I snagged their mission statement for you to read.
“Mission Workshop bags are constructed with the most rugged assembly of industrial and technical materials in the United States of America. Domestic manufacturing allows us to make smaller, more controlled runs of every bag, ensuring that each bag is worthy of it’s lifetime warranty. Mission Workshop strives for a production level of goods that are unmatched in terms of durability, aesthetics and over all flawless construction.”
This statement is beyond true. Now we have had this bag for about a year now and this is the second review we have done for Mission Workshop but so far it has surpassed anything I have ever owned before. The bag will be accompanying me on every weekend outdoor adventure in the Pennsylvania mountains we take and for overall hikes. I will be hiking, fly fishing, and putting the bag to its limits.
Thank you Mission Workshop for making a truly magnificent bag.
