PLEASE NOTE the following before you make your purchase of the WHITLEY:
1. The current WHITLEYs being offered are the new 2023 ones with the upgrades, see below.
2. The WHITLEY is a 20L backpack, that's small in volume.
3. While the height of 18.5" and width of 11" is standard, the depth of the main compartment is only 5".
4. If you have an existing backpack please check the volume of your pack to gauge how much smaller in volume the Whitley is.
The exterior may appear the same, there are subtle improvements that might not catch the immediate eye:
1. An enhanced carry handle for improved comfort and durability.
2. The quick access zippered opening on top has been widened to facilitate easier access to the laptop sleeve.
3. The laptop sleeve itself has been extended all the way to the top zippered access, providing better protection and convenience.
4. Lastly, the stiffener in the wall between the front organizer pocket and main compartment has been replaced with a new closed-cell foam. This foam retains the necessary stiffness while allowing more flexibility for items in the main compartment, even when overstuffed.
The Whitley will be available in the following fabric / color options:
