💬 Reviewers Have Said

  • "...The top pocket is perfect for phones, wallets, masks, or hand sanitizer. I store my sunglasses inside their case in one of the inside pockets that almost seems made for them. This is a minimalistic, trendy pack that looks at home anywhere you take it and it's a pleasure to interact with in every way. Honestly, I could go on and on. Give this pack a try...I bet you choose to keep it too."
  • "I'm very happy. The Max Backpack fits the description from online reviews. It's fashionable, comfortable, and feels robust."
  • "One of the best travel backpacks I've used. I'm lucky enough to travel a lot with work so appreciate what's needed in a pack and what's just fluff. There's zero fluff in this back. The material and plastics are all top-notch when with high-end additions like the mag lock sternum strap"

"Great bag. Very well constructed. Great choices of materials. Very cool looking. So I'm really looking forward in using this bag when it's ok to travel again."

Able Carry Max Backpack Review

"The Max that I’ve been testing out is version 10-ish. Able Carry has gone through many iterations to refine it and the bag is 95% of the way there. The production model will just have a few minor color tweaks so that the zipper and fabric colors match more closely and tightening the lengths of some of the internal lash points."

Able Carry Max Backpack Review

"Able Carry went all-in with the durable materials for the Max backpack, and the build quality is something worth commending. The amount of space and organization is superb...the harness system makes carrying the backpack hassle-free and comfortable."


"This bag is feature rich and visually appealing. It has packed a lot of functions into a bag without a single hook-and-loop field or PALS row in sight; The loops and daisy chains on the back of the main compartment, all the little webbing loops that you can use to hook additional things onto the bag as needed, the hook and the secret compartment in the back, and other visual elements that are delightful to discover. I feel like they took all of the learning from their first three bags and put them here. Now, I find myself wanting them to revise the original Daily Backpack with all these new designs."

Able Carry Max Backpack Review

"The Able Carry Max Backpack has everything it takes to be my new favorite backpack. Its looks is up to par with the Aer Travel Pack 2, while features are certainly up there with the TOM BIHN Synik 30."
