Version 2 of the classic Evergoods city backpack

Civic Panel Loader 24 L V2 (CPL24) is the second version of the Evergoods city-focused backpack with an attention to fit, function, durability, and detail that make it thrive as an active day bag in any environment. A streamlined profile lacks bobbles and dangles, making it glide through crowded city streets or dense outdoor surroundings. It stows easily under airline seats.

Comparing to the first version, the V2 has following updates:

  • Internal organization in the front pocket
  • Fully suspended laptop slot with Velcro strap and separator
  • Top external pocket
  • Webbing loops inside for attaching small items
  • Key lanyard moved from front pocket to top external pocket

CPL24 is exceptionally comfortable even with a laptop inside. EVA foam shoulder straps have extremely even density and long lasting compression resistance. The bag holds its shape even in side carry mode because of a removable aluminum stay found inside the main side body of the bag.

Exterior top pocket provides quick and easy access to smaller items and key leash without setting the bag down. It uses the volume above the shoulders and does not interfere with main compartment, allowing you to keep more fragile items up high, above the main load. 

Exterior front panel pocket with vertical zipper allows a larger opening than horizontal or diagonal openings. Vertical orientation allows side access while wearing or from the ground. The organization includes a drop-in pocket for phone-sized items, zippered mesh pocket for smaller items and pen slot for multiple pens. When the bag is upright, the contents stay contained when panel pocket zipper is closed.

The internal padded laptop sleeve is fully suspended on all sides with Velcro strap to protect devices up to 17” Macbook Pro. Also has corner cutouts to allow for expansion and escape of debris. Sleeve can be used to separate computer, tablet or documents. Asymmetrical profile of overall compartment allows laptop to be held securely in the lower portion without compromising contour fit around the back and shoulders. It accommodates a hydration bladder which can hang from the small loop provided.

Two vertical rows of webbing at the top of main interior allow you to clip or stow small items like keys, pens, folding knives or attach an aftermarket organization pouch or panel. The panel opens clamshell style and it has two inner pockets with dedicated volumes.

As all Civic line bags, the CPL24 has durable, water resistant materials. 500d HT nylon and water repellent finish shell fabric create excellent durability and weather resistance for years to come. The water repelllant RC (Racquet coil) zipper from YKK is precision engineered to meet the toughest performance requirements. 

  • Integrated harness for streamlined excellent fit
  • Contoured shoulder straps and back panel
  • Fully suspended and padded laptop slot with separator and Velcro closing
  • Easy on body access to contents
  • External front pocket with organization
  • External top pocket with key leash
  • Webbing loops inside
  • Top and side carry handles
  • Low profile right and left bladder ports
  • Internal stretch pocket for folders or books
  • Removable, adjustable sternum strap
  • Bias cut panels for improved abrasion resistance or stretch
  • Differentially cut shoulder straps for natural curve
  • Main zipper counter pulls
  • Aluminum side stay for sturdy side carry
  • Hi-Vis compatible loop logo (Hi-Vis patches sold separately)

Not the perfect pack, but rather close
There is a lot of info on this bag online, so I'll just share my personal impressions.

The bad:
-- This backpack is very uncomfortable for me in stock setting: the hard bottom is pushing against my lower back. I'm 183cm and of moderate build if this matters. This can be fixed by putting a piece of cloth in the framesheet section, which is located inside the laptop compartment closer to the back. Here is the video where this hack is shown in detail: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tgPecR2UMhg This fixes the issue for the most part for me, but hey, paying EUR 250+ for a backpack which you have to "fix" with a kitchen towel is not the nicest thing in the world.
-- The material becomes dirty very easily. It is as bad as they say. You can either come to terms with it or be very careful with where you put the bag and what it touches and clean it often. I'm somewhere in between at the moment. Don't understand, to be honest, why do they keep using this material. Some folks say that if you apply DWR coating, the problems becomes less prominent, but I haven't tried it.

The good:
-- All the other aspect are just stellar. Organization, zippers, quality of everything, looks are top notch. Top quick access pocket is large and super easy to use.

Not good or bad, but just an observation: since the capacity is shared between different compartments, the CPL24 feels less spacious than some other bag with similar volume which have one large compartment.

Overall I highly recommend this backpack to everyone who can live with the negatives and needs a do-it-all everyday companion. I'm liking mine and don't see a better alternative at the moment.

For the record: I own a Goruck GR1 26L, a Mixed Works Falcon M and a TAD Scout as a base for comparison.

Check your laptop size befory buying
My expectations from the bag:
I bought this laptop mostly for my daily work commute.(not commuting much right now because of pandemic but it will change at some point again). So nothing to fancy, I usually carry a 12 inch tablet, 15inch laptop, sometimes I hit the gym so gym clothes and I want everything to look stylish since I don't like bulky backpacks.

Cons:
1. Does not fit my Dell Latitude 5591 (15 inch) laptop
Inside the laptop compartment, you have a divider, on one side is the place where the laptop should actually go and that compartment is suspended, and the other side is a normal compartment. My laptop does not fit in the suspended compartment, even if the Evergoods website says that it should fit most 17 inch laptops, yes, 17'. It does fit on the other side, so not everything is lost, but I do want future buyers to be aware of this fact.
2. Price. Let's face it, it is not a cheap backpack, but considering the pros listed below, I almost don't really see this as a con

Pros:
1. Really nice materials, the look and feel just says high quality and reliability.
2. VERY comfortable. I saw some people on yt say the straps are not that comfy, I must say this is not the case, it feels VERY nice on my back. The contoured shoulder straps that give flexibility when you are carrying a laptop, that should be the standard on ANY laptop carrying backpack, it really does make a difference
3. Don't know what else to say here other than, if your laptop fits this backpack and you like how it looks, go for it cause everything is very nice engineered.

The reason for only 3 stars: I do feel like I was a bit 'lied' about regarding the laptop compartment size, and at this price point it is just unacceptable.
