I got this because i needed something to take my laptop and some other supplies with me too and from work. It fit the bill really nicely. I carry a full 17" laptop with 10key on it in the laptop sleeve. the backpack is a little odd shaped, but i still get everything I need in it. The "tablet sleeve is fleece lines and perfect for EDC weapon if you choose to do that. This backpack works nicely for EDC and school supplies or work supplies and doesn't look tactical at all. I don't think that was its intent, which is why i like it. All in all great little back pack. Unknown on May 8th 2018
I've had this bag for about five months, and so far it's been great. I've used it for multiple flights as well as carrying things around on the day-to-day. The bag is sturdy, the pouches are placed well so the interior doesn't get clogged by pouches with external access that are housed in the main compartment (a huge pet peeve of mine), and it's the perfect size for overhead storage on planes.
The only trouble I've had was when someone put a wet boot bag into the same compartment as my pack—it's not 100% waterproof, so some of my clothes got wet. Other minor gripes include that there's nothing to clip waterbottles to on the external pockets, so there's not that extra security of being able to clip a carabiner between your bottle and pack, and the front tablet pouch is a little too small for my Chromebook. I use the front pouch to hold charging cables/headphones instead, and that works nicely. josh on Apr 29th 2018
Had it for a couple of weeks now and it's been super helpful with my trips to work and the gym. A lot of different compartments and I love the laptop insert. Unlike any other backpack I've had before. Unknown on Apr 25th 2018
I have been using Ardent backpack for about 3 months. I use it both as my casual backpack (for my everyday commute to work) and as my travel backpack (for short trips). And the more I use it, the more I love it.
The bag is really sturdy. It has an accurate and nice look. The bag's material has a pleasant soft feel and an interesting texture. Castle Rock color absolutely rocks! The bag also sits very comfortably on my back. It has good volume capacity (for example, on a usual day, I can fit in: my yoga clothes, a face towel, a mat towel or a thin foldable yoga mat, a cosmetic bag, a medicine/supplements bag, up to 5 200ml food containers plus a couple of fruit/vegetables, a tablet, a bag with adaptors and a power bank; and still, there will be room left). The bag's sleeves and pockets organization works very well for me, and I also like using Kelty stash pockets to organize some of my things inside the main compartment.
Overall, I am impressed. Good job, Kelty! Daria on Jan 19th 2018
