        The last bag I’ll need

        I’ve had dozens of bags over the years, always looking for something to fit all my needs, a everyday carry for work and the gym and also a travel bag. This bag is absolutely amazing. I can keep everything organized for my everyday needs with phones, charging cables and pens. For travel the space and organizing is key!! I was on the fence for a while, and I am absolutely in love with this bag!

        Pricey, but worth it.

        This backpack cost more than all the backpacks/Bags I ever owned before, but it's absolutely been worth the price for me. I Love that I can attach my modular sling to it, the main compartment is huge and being able to access it from the top and through the laptop area is really great. Can't wait to actually travel with it, I've only been using it for daily commutes to and from work so far. The only minor problem I have is with the strap across the chest. When I wear the backpack and push my kid's stroller, the way I squeez my shoulders and chest together makes it unhook. I'm sure it's properly closed, I feel the magnets snapping and everything, but in this one situation, it keeps coming undone. Not a huge problem, but stronger magnets would probably be nice for any V3 versions of the shift pack (which I'll maybe then get as well). If you're even remotely interested in it, I'm sure you won't be disappointed!

        Best flexible backpack

        I'm using my new Shift2 for several weeks. It's the best and flexible backpack I'm owning. There's much space in the main compartment, the laptop compartment is also big enough for my 16" MacBook Pro and an 12,9" iPad Pro. The front compartment has many small compartments for sorting your edc stuff. All fits very well. Great work, Alpakagear!

        Excellent Bag Design

        Bought the Shift Pack V2 for nearly a month now, and I am sure glad I made the choice of purchasing this bag. This bag is very ergonomically designed with each compartments being designed exactly for what they are intended for. Ease of bag access is smooth to attain items.

        Great And Spacious Backpack

        Pre-order this backpack and suddenly have plans to go back to my country. Contact the staff and they help me to hold the shipping until i get back to my apartment. Very nice and spacious backpack that i could use when i need to shop for groceries . I just wish I could get the newer xpac version that has been introduced after i bought mine.

        Well done

        My overall experience is very good. But I do have some points that could improve the bag Point 1 - it could open in a 180 degrees the back of the bag. Like open shell. It will improve the way we pack. 2 - The panel that separate the laptop sleeve from the main compartment could be move completely or not. If wanted 3 - The “strapped on the magnetic buckle” that open the bag from the top go in the way of the zippers(tangle on the zippers) of the from and back. It could go a bit up to not go on the way. 4 - it need a extra pocket besides the big pocket in the front. And the small one on the bottom. Thats the most trick to resolve. We gonna need to think about it. I’m very happy with my new backpack… in fact i’m use right now. It’s vacation here in São Paulo, Brazil. I'm available for anything you need. Thanks in advance Mario Meirelles

        Shift Pack V2

        Highly functional backpack with great partition of space. Ample amount of storage space and the flexibility to expand a bit if needed is great. Consistent with other Alpaka products, the material and quality is great and the design is stylish while very functional as well. Would highly recommend!

        Great Quality and Amazing Design!

        Love this backpack! The different compartments have different sizes to fit everything I need. Opening at the top could be a bit bigger for fitting larger items such as big board game boxes. The magnet lock is surprisingly easy to open and I hope the magnets holds for a long time. The detachable chest-strap is also a great feature. Thank you, ALPAKA team!

        rolled the dice and came out very happy

        This bag arrived at my home 10 days before i was to take a 4 week vacation all around Asia. im 3/4 of the way done with the trip and the bag has been phenomenal. to putting up with heavy rain in Thailand and being large enough to hold my laptop, toiletries, accessory bags, sunglasses. I feel like im still learning how to use the bag in more efficient ways, such as accessing the main compartment through the laptop compartment is great for passing through tsa or grabbing something quick. im 5'9 220 and the shoulder straps sit very comfortably on me; the padding is phenomenal. i would imagine that for someone smaller it would wrap around their shoulders even better. My only wish for a future design would be motley webbing on the bag so that attaching things to it would be easier but overall a great product and absolutely recommend.

        Great for daily use.

        Good material, comfortable to wear and use daily. I can carry my work tech and admin stuff, then adjust the capacity for shopping afterwards without needing a second bag.

        Shift Pack V2

        I really hasn't used it yet, as I haven't traveled since I received the Shift Pack V2. Though it can easily be used as an everyday EDC carry, but again haven't had the need yet. But I've walked around the house with it and love the quality! Can't wait to September when I'm going overseas for 5 weeks and I'll put this bag to use!
