A good everyday backpack is simple, durable and understated, and you’ll find few better examples than the Evergoods Civic Panel Loader 24, which is currently $69 off at Huckberry (the best deal we’ve seen on this bag). Evergoods — a relatively young company started by an ex-Patagonia engineer and one of GORUCK’s original co-founders — makes its backpacks in small-batches at its headquarters in Bozeman, Montana.
Since the CPL 24’s debut in 2017, multiple Gear Patrol staff members have adopted it as their daily driver for getting to and from the office. That says a lot, given how many backpacks we test out for reviews and buying guides. But the CPL 24 stands out because it balances a minimal look with a full set of features; a 500D nylon shell fabric treated with a water-resistant coating, a curved back panel that’s both comfortable and breathable and a side-access laptop compartment that fits computers up to 15 inches are just a few. Plus, while the CPL 24 is the ideal around-town pack, it’s capable enough to handle an impromptu hike too (the backpack includes pass-throughs for hydration hoses on both shoulders).
