So today I wanted to tell you about the Javelin backpack. I have had it for a while now and I can say that it isn’t a bad backpack. It’s perfect for an EDC (Every Day Carry). It’s a good minimalist day pack used mainly as a commuter or a tactical office bag. So today I wanted to tell you about the Javelin backpack.

The Javelin is a sling style pack that goes over a shoulder and has a cross body strap that helps secure the pack in place.
The front panel has MOLLE webbing on it and some of the MOLLE webbing has velcro to attach a name patch or a morale patch to it. Behind those is a pocket with a vertical zipper. It’s not that bad of a pocket and will fit small items like pens, note pads, index cards, etc.
The whole front panel is also a pocket that has some small organizational pockets and can carry a few more items than the front vertical pocket. Above that pouch is a smaller one great for storing sunglasses or maybe a gerber with a lighter and a couple of other smaller items.
The Main Compartment
Alright, so here is the main compartment. You can store larger items in here but not too big. It will hold a 12-13 inch laptop and maybe some other flat items like a notebook or a light jacket. It does come with a divider.
On the flap part there are 3 pockets, 2 larger pockets and a smaller pocket. On the panel that is on the back side also has a flap to store a laptop or tablet and keep it secure.
There is a small hydration pocket on the part that is on your back. It is large enough to store a 3 liter bladder.
On the side, there is another pocket that has more organizationally optimized storage. Pen sleeves, and other small ladder style pockets will help you organize your administrative gear.
Overall I would give this bag a 7 out of 10. The bag is made of some high quality material and has some pretty cool features. The stand alone hydration pocket is great for keeping your other gear dry and allowing your bladder to not be punctured by your gear. The downside is the bag is pretty small. Yet with the nature of the bag, you can easily swing this bag infant of you to get to your gear without taking the bag off.
