Inspired by life on the wall, but built for life in transit, the Creek Mandate 28 Pack combines the toughness of our haul bags with a sleek and super-functional design that deftly handles work commutes, indoor training sessions and far-flung travels. The Mandate’s rugged waterproof shell fabric on the pack’s front panel protects against light weather and the rigors of day-in, day-out travel, while its panel-loading design offers quick and easy access to your gear. A padded laptop sleeve protects your computer, and zippered pocket storage keeps your small items in check. Full padded shoulder straps and webbing hipbelt keep you comfy during all-day hustles, and burly loop handles on the top and front make it easy to grab.
  • Durable waterproof shell fabric inspired by our haul bags used on front panel

  • Zippered top pocket with internal zippered mesh pocket
  • Haul loop handles on top and front
  • Exterior-access padded compartment stores a 17” x 15.5" laptop

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Could be Amazing BUT - Doesn't Fit 17" Laptop Be aware, unless you have a legacy macbook 17"er you will not be able to fit a 17" PC. I have an ASUS, thin notebook, and although close, it does not fit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Backpack Bought this to use as a daily driver for flight training. It holds all of my flying materials easily in the front pocket. The massive rear compartment holds gym clothes on the way to work, and flight boots and flight suit on my way home, plus pre workout and shaker. The only feature I would add to make this bag 5 stars is a bottle pouch on the side. I clip my bottle to the daisy-chain loops on the side. All in all, this bag is well constructed and comforable!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Pack! This pack seems super durable, and is really spacious. It can fit a few outfits, as well as a laptop in a separate protective pouch. Excellent for someone looking to do work trips in the outdoor industry, and for many other purposes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for daily commute with laptop I have been using it for my commute on the bus. It easily contains my clothes, lunch box, 17" laptop, travel mug and book and protects it all from the weather and dirty bus floors. I like its shape: nothing to get snagged with, fits nicely near me on my seat, and stays vertical thanks to the flat bottom. Access to the main compartment is a bit awkward, you basically have to lay it flat on the front and move the shoulder straps out of the way to get to it; easy access to the front and top compartments more than makeup for the main.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is my go-to travel pack. I bought the Creek Mandate 28 for a two-week trip to Japan and I am very happy with this pack. I used the pack every day for travel by plane, train, bus, and car. I also wore it daily for sightseeing and hiking. I like the sleek exterior for ease of fitting it into overhead bins, under seats, and other places were exterior features get in the way. The interior pockets are nice, especially the top pocket with its hidden pocket inside. It was perfect for passports, money, and other important things. The pack volume is more than other travel packs I have used and it handles weight well. This pack will see lots of use in the coming year!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great back but a wonky zipper! Overall a great pack made with quality material, but the rear panel zipper has gotten wavy with only a few uses and is hard to open and close shut.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it.... Much better than even a large briefcase for travel and especially getting through airports. Holds a ton of stuff besides a large laptop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Compartments! Only had for a week or so but it has been great for my work/commuter bag—really like the separate compartments to keep myself organized.
