Measuring just 18 inches high and 13.5 inches wide, this certainly isn’t the biggest bag on the planet – but it’s going to offer an almost deceptively huge amount of storage space.

Designed specifically to provide those that lead active lifestyles with all of the storage space they need in intelligently organized compartments, you’re going to be able to protect your laptop, a change of clothes, all of your camping or hiking equipment, and everything that you’ve purchased when running errands in this bag and still have room for more!

Manufactured entirely out of 100% lightweight 420 D nylon and 600 D polyester (with water resistant tarpaulin in key areas), this is a bag that is going to be able to take a beating and not show any signs of letting up anytime soon. It’s moisture and dirt resistant, isn’t ripstop but is as close as can be to being that tough, and will certainly protect absolutely everything that you stuff inside its cavernous interior.

The stitching and the hardware on this backpack are second to none. The zippers are oversized and very heavy duty, with the zipper tracks themselves being fully protected by weather and dustproof construction materials. Everything from the position of the pockets to the organizational dividers themselves have been intelligently designed, and you’ll find that there is always room for whatever it is that you’re hoping to tote around in this bag.

On top of all that, you’ll find that this bag is pretty effortless to carry all day long (if necessary). The backpack strap mechanism is designed to effortlessly distribute weight all across your shoulders and your back (so you aren’t going to feel worn out when fully loaded). This is really something special.

Pros and Cons

Though it certainly isn’t recommended that you toss this backpack fully loaded into a swimming pool anytime soon, you are going to find that the Briggs & Riley Excursion is built to withstand just about everything that Mother Nature tosses your way. The construction materials are tough, moisture and dirt resistant, and as close to indestructible as it gets.

On the flipside, you are certainly going to have to pay a premium price tag to take advantage of all the advantages that this bag offers. Combine that with a style that is very minimalist in nature, and you’re looking at very minor drawbacks that shouldn’t stop anyone from purchasing this backpack.


All things considered, there are a lot of backpacks out there that promise the moon and the stars. Very few of them are able to deliver on those promises quite as well as this backpack can. It’s definitely recommended.
