Everything has a place

There are many reasons to love the Fit Pack 3, but the most important is how versatile it is. It has three main compartments. The first is a front-load compartment for spacious storage of clothes. Gym clothes, dress-up clothes or even a puffy jacket will fit nicely in this large, zippered area.

The second compartment, reachable from the top of the bag, holds all your important work stuff. Its padded, suspended laptop pocket with soft lining holds up to a 16-inch MacBook Pro. Plus, extra pockets contain cords and notebooks.

The third compartment is what makes this bag like a duffle bag. It’s a ventilated shoe compartment with a rounded zipper that opens on the bottom. It can hold your gym shoes (up to men’s size 13).

The Fit Pack 3 comes with two exterior side bottle holders and a small, quick-access top pocket with soft lining for your wallet and phone.

Despite all that carrying capacity, the $145 Fit Pack 3 is compact (17.5 inches long, 12.5 inches wide and 8 inches deep). I comes in Cordura ballistic nylon in black, olive and gray. Or you can upgrade to a VX-42 X-Pac sailcloth exterior by Dimension-Polyant for $169.
