    Hi Marnie & Dean, just recently returned from a trips to Vietnam and japan, where we used a couple of your products.
    The bathroom bags (large for my wife and small for me), worked brilliantly in the tiny bathrooms of Tokyo hotels. Without any space to put down a toiletry bag, the hooks on your bags were a godsend, and their capacity to hold everything in its place was perfect. I also used your large sling pack daily in city and country rambles to tote camera, water bottle, rain jacket, maps, snacks and money. Large enough to hold essentials, but not too big to be burdensome on day long hikes.
    Thank you so much for such well made, durable and practical travel products. I’ve traveled through many countries and used many high end brands of travel gear, but the simplicity of design and standout quality of Nomad Essentials is by far and away the best.

    I used my bag for seven weeks all over Europe and it was great, all my gear fitted perfectly and was very secure, we also used two bathroom bags and a large organiser for charging cables adaptors etc.

    Tough, robust quality and great, functional design!
    I use it for hiking and the thick shoulder strap is exceptionally comfortable, no red marks on the shoulder, even after 14kms, which is handy, considering how much water I carry.
    Would buy a thousand times again.
    Nice work NE

    Service was awesome. The bag is great. Strong and well made. I use it to carry my everyday items, and keep them organised – MacBook Pro 13″, keys, wallet, notebook & pen, sunnies, and my A5 Memobottle water bottle fits perfectly in the middle pocket. The bag was exactly what I wanted, something to carry everything I need for work, that is easy to ride with, and looks really good.

    I’m very impressed with the excellent & quick service of the Nomad family.
    The bag is great, It fits a lot more than I expected when I saw it.

    I recommend this bag to all travelers, not just hikers.
    I have just returned from a 3 week holiday in the UK. I have a bad back so I wanted a bag that was held close to my back or chest, depending on how I needed to carry it.
    The size is perfect for my iPad, wallet, phone, glasses, gloves & water bottle.

    I carried it mostly on my back but when back was tired I would slide it around to the front.

    The hidden inside compartment is perfect for my passport and other travel docs.

    I have always been concerned about security with backpacks but this inside compartment has changed that for me.

    Perfect for my holiday!
    Thanks Nomad

    Husband loves it. Sturdy construction and I love the compartments. Decided to pour down when taking the dogs for a walk and it kept my husband’s phone dry which was awesome.

    Fantastic bags. I have the smaller version for 4 years now and still in excellent condition even though use it all the time. Just purchased the larger one and I know that it will be just as great as the smaller version. Very well made. I have recommended to friends as well.

    After a couple of days of field testing, here is what I have to say about this backpack :

    PROS :
    – Very sturdy and durable, the canvas is resistant and waterproof, the stitching is super solid!
    – It looks good, maybe not for formal and business wear, but more than presentable none the less.
    – Comfortable. The padding and mesh is comfy even when the bag is packed to the brim. For long walk and cycling, the 2nd strap relieve most of the weight and can go around me (6’5″ and 330 pounds), which I didn’t expect.

    CONs :
    – Storage – It’s minor, but I would’ve liked some mesh pockets in the main and/or 2nd compartment and some elastic band in the small front pocket for pencils. The key holder is a litlle short and doesn’t accommodate larger carabiner very well.

    Overall, it’s the best bag I’ve ever seen. The price might seems steep at first (especially with the international shipping) but it’s worth every penny!

    PS… if you ever have any bad luck with shipping or customs, be reassured that the Nomads will make sure you got your stuff. They respond quickly to emails and go above & beyond what is expected.

    Great bag! I’ve had mine for (I think) 2yrs now, use it regularly and theres not so much a frayed corner or a rough zipper.
    Great service as well, can’t fault this mob

  11. Josh

    This is a great bag. So much so that I’ve bothered to come back and tell you how awesome it is. The Zips are all heavy duty, the canvas is beautiful, and I love the internal pocket that bridges between the two main ones. Plus the strap is really comfortable, and it’s so convenient to just sling the bag into your lap when you sit down. Also, Dean and Marnie are really helpful: they went the extra mile to make sure all my stuff would fit in by doing some experiments for me. I’d definitely buy from them again if I need to.

  12. Valerie Johnson

    We have just used this amazing bag on our holiday to the US. So easy and convenient to use and it makes so much sense to have a bag you can simply “sling” to the front and access all of its contents without having to take the bag off or risk losing anything. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to have their bag contents readily accessible. It also works when you just want to sit down and have your bag in the front while still wearing it. A very clever design indeed. 10 out of 10!
