Great backpack with big issues


I'm a full time employee, full time student and I work on film sets on the side. I require a lot out of a bag. Having said that, I like this backpack. I really do. I've heard great things about Thule's quality, and it is a well-deserved reputation. This Crossover is made of tough material that I'd take on my toughest adventures. But the pack is poorly executed and the capacity is seemingly nowhere near 32 liters. I originally had an Ogio Renegade RSS as a daily driver -- a good pack for technology, but not very tough -- that I was upgrading from because it only held 27 liters and when I joined a major film set, I needed room for work, school and film essentials in one bag and the RSS would hold everything but some of my film stuff. Unfortunately, when I got this 32 liter Thule bag, it wouldn't even hold my work and school gear without filling up to its max. I don't know if there is variance with how capacity is calculated by manufacturer, but my Ogio can hold 25% more than this bag can despite being a smaller bag. And at even a modest capacity, the front accessory pocket becomes unusable and incompliant due to the contents of the main pocket pushing on it -- something the Ogio never did even when stuffed. Overall, the style, build quality and choice of material is good, but the overall execution is flawed and the capacity claims are misleading. Still, I was impressed enough by this pack to return it and get a Subterra 34L. Having said all of this, if you arent going to be relying on using all 32L of space in this thing, this will likely be a good buy for you. But if you're in the 95th percentile of extreme backpack users needing something a bit more serious, this is not your bag. It just doesn't cut it.




Excellent Quality, Wears Well


An excellent bag constructed from quality materials with clear thought put toward pocket placement and sizing. The major downside of the bag is the "Stuff-it" pocket and the metal buckle on the front, though it feels quality, it tends to come loose. I regularly carry three laptops, their power bricks as well as an assortment of electrical tools with ease. I've carried this bag for 2.5 years daily and it does show some wear in the "smalls" pocket in the front. The exterior remains in excellent condition showing very little wear despite my general mistreatment. Overall, this bag is head and shoulders above every other bag I've owned (including two high-end name-brand bags).

The Best Book Bag I've Ever Owned


I have owned this product and used it for school almost every day for the past 4 years. It has lasted through everything until recently it got a small rip in it. I emailed Thule and they immediately sent me a replacement. They are easy to work with and so friendly. I recommend this product to everyone I know.
