When you rely heavily on your daily set of tools, it makes sense to get the most durable gear available. But for many of you, your most essential tool is your laptop. And let's be honest, they're more expensive and fragile than the rest of your EDC. So if your kit revolves around your laptop and tech gadgets, it pays to protect those investments in a well-organized bag. CargoWorks have been making durable packs with your laptop in mind, and their newest Recon 15 brings tactical bag features to your highly connected, on-the-go lifestyle.

Like a traditional assault pack, the Recon 15 sports a narrow profile for added mobility in the city. Despite its slim silhouette, it manages to pack in 8 external pockets and 10 internal pockets with enough room left for a 15” laptop and tablet. And with all those pockets, it's impressively easy to access your gear, thanks to thoughtful pocket placement on the outside of the bag. For example, you've got three zippered compartments within arms reach without even having to take the bag off: one on the shoulder strap and one on each “wing” of the supportive hip belt.

With the bag off, you can get to your gear quickly via a top-access dump pocket, a fully organized admin panel in the front, and a bottom pocket for bulkier accessories. A small MOLLE grid on the front of the bag gives you even more ways to carry. Durable materials like 500D Cordura nylon and YKK zippers bring a heavy-duty feel to the bag, but its empty weight of 2lb makes it a comfortable EDC. You can grab one from Cargo Works at their website via the link below.

I'm throwing my wallet at the screen, but nothing is happening!

I did the same thing and my laptop exploded. Now I am typing on my iPad.

I was about to, but then I saw that the main compartment doesn't open completely like a clam shell. And mesh water bottle holders were so last decade. Give me webbing on the sides and a place for my hydration bladder and then i might consider throwing my money at it.

I just received my bag. Very disappointing: it seems like there is no quality control: one of the waist pack is on his up side down. Build quality is very poor, I doubt the the webbing will hold for a long time. The idea is great with the front pockets. But they are all too small for like a phone. The pocket at the shoulder strap is small for like a pack of sigarets. Even thought it says it's made in Boston, I received my bag from Taiwan. The good side: relative light weight. Many pockets.
