    BEST ANSWER: If anything like Cordura of old, it's really good in the rain, especially with the "waterproof" coating. On a bicycle trip with some old Cordura packs, it rained countless times and never a drop of water inside the packs. For this backpack, I'd say a better term is water "repellent". However, it's always best to prepare for the worst, so a good pack cover for long term rain exposure is recommended.

    I don't believe there is a water resistance "rating" for packs, as opposed to electronics (which sometimes have an IP rating). No pack of this sort is completely waterproof, so dunking underwater is not a good idea. For added water repellency, it can't hurt to use a good quality fabric water repellent spray (best out there is 303 fabric protector, check Google for prices).

    What's the third dimension?
    A shopper on Jul 14, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: if you mean the front-to-back depth, that depends on how much you stuff into it. It is about 6 inches empty and could be crushed even flatter, and about 8 to 10 inches or more when packed full.
    What size laptop will it hold?
    Adam S on Jun 21, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your inquiry. The Pure Outdoor 32L Survival Tactical Backpack can fit a 15.6 laptop in the laptop sleeve, and it has also successfully held a 17.3" laptop when not using the laptop sleeve. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to utilize our support teams.
    Could you please tell me what the depth of the main compartment is?
    A shopper on Apr 14, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Measuring with the sides as orthogonal as possible, it's 18" tall x 12" wide x 5 3/8" deep. The padding for the laptop sleeve takes up almost 1/4" of the depth. Since it's soft-sided, something wider or deeper will fit, if the other dimension is somewhat less than what I measured.
    Does this come with a water reservoir?
    Jean-Claude O on May 8, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: The description says that the water reservoir can be added .. there are three sizes available so you can pick the one you want.

    Nearly perfect backpack with outstanding value
    I had a big week-long trip coming up which was five states away. Me and my fiance planned on camping in the mountains for 3 of those days. Because of a limited budget, I spent a solid month researching the backpack market and what it offered. I finally boiled my requirements to: 1000D Cordura, self repairing YKK zippers, 30L or more capacity and a respectable product warranty. The only other backpack with materials comparable (and only being a few liters bigger) to Monoprice's offering is over TWICE the price. To add insult to injury, that particular company's warranty is no where near as comprehensive. Once I found the Monoprice backpack I pulled the trigger same day.

    I've used this thing everyday for roughly two weeks now. 32L is much bigger than I anticipated. I can comfortably fit a week's worth of clothes, bathroom stuff, an extra "light" jacket and a small pillow for travel. That's using every compartment at max capacity but without stress of course. The cushions on this backpack rest very comfortably on my back; no discomfort all. I had this thing hanging from my shoulders for hours walking around the city during a long bus layover with no issues at all.

    The YKK zippers are flawless. The 1000D Cordura fabric feels extremely durable. The waist belt IS removable by pulling apart the velcro patch in the middle of the sleeve that the belt slides into. Note that the velcro securing the belt is a super strong bond so taking it off is a little tricky. I can put it back on if I need it for hiking. The option to remove it is a huge plus. Also, the molle type webbing is a neat feature allowing this pack even more versatility. Lastly, this thing just looks nice. I appreciate the minimalist branding: a small "pure outdoor" square that blends in with the color of the pack.

    I paid 59.99. At this price point the value is outstanding. It has absolutely exceeded my expectations. 100% satisfied. I see many many years of use.

    However, there are two TINY (hopefully) issues. After returning from trip I noticed the thread in the middle of a seam on the front top compartment loosened a TINY bit. Its hardly noticeable but I just hope the thread doesn't pull/loosen any farther.

    Second issue is a few days ago, out of no where I see two really long threads- about a foot long- hanging from a seam from bottom of zipper liner on the inside of front top compartment. Is it the end slack from when they sewed liner? The problem is I didn't see it before and i definitely would have noticed two 12 inch long threads hanging loose when i packed. I'm just going to tie a tight knot at the seam and cut the slack off.

    Nothing is ever truly perfect and I'm positive these thread issues are negligible. Its definitely not enough to warrant removing a star. This is a serious 5 star product. If the seam in question becomes a real problem then i trust the 1 year manufacturer warranty will solve it.

    That concludes my experience so far. I felt obligated to contribute a review after relying on so many before making a purchase. Its a great product and I highly recommend it especially now that I see it on sale for $9 cheaper than what I paid for it!

    Excellent pack
    This pack is loaded with excellent design, materials and features. I've been a lot of miles with mine so far over rough mountain terrain. This pack is an excellent value. The only problem I've had is a zipper pull broke. I simply looped some paracord through zipper and tied it, which is an upgrade with a larger loop to grasp. Have paracord on hand or go ahead and replace all the pulls ahead of time and you'll be good to go. Everything else about this pack has been excellent. Even though I've carried this pack many miles over the course of only a few months I anticipate it lasting quite a while based on how it's built.

    Got my backpack back.
    Quality construction, my wife wanted one in olive drab for her craft supplies to travel with after she tried to steal my backpack in black. I now have my tool pack back.

    Outstanding & Extremely Functional!
    It is very spacious with lots of pockets for organizing content. I purchased it because my son and grands used one each for a week long vacation to South America. You can’t go wrong with it!

    Great Go Bag!!!
    A great go bag. It fits easy under flight seats and just about anywhere,plenty of compartments and very comfortable. It could have been designed that the zippers would travel a bit further to make it easier to load clothes neatly. The price was a big decision and Im very happy with this decision. Jerry H.
