This EDC Daypack Delivers Next Level Access
Urban living can be pretty fast-paced. Conquering the commute in the morning. Delving in and out of your bag throughout the day in search of work tools, a wallet or phone. Zipping to a busy evening with friends or family, swinging by the gym, or simply navigating the hustle of the home commute.
So CYCOP wanted to create a bag that would keep up. A bag that would make accessing gear intuitive and fast. A carry chameleon that could blend just as easily into the office as it could strolling through the park, grabbing a quick coffee, or hauling your workout gear. And they’ve built on the original SWIFT Backpack to do so. Meet the CYCOP SWIFT 2.0 Backpack.
Rapid access on the fly
The key element of this 23L backpack is the S-style YKK zipper that enables multiple access points to the main compartment. Unzip the bag partially for access to gear right at the top or bottom without displaying the rest of the contents. For larger items or gear located towards the center of the pack, you can open the zipper more fully, essentially splitting the front panel in two. This allows you to separately access different parts of the main compartment while keeping the rest of your gear secure. And if you want full access throughout the bag? Just fully open the zipper and all your gear will be ready to grab as needed.
A place for everything
Thoughtful organization also makes a big difference when it comes to quickly accessing your gear. And the folks at CYCOP designed this pack accordingly. The separate rear laptop compartment is large enough for a 15″ laptop or 16″ MacBook Pro, as well as A4 documents or similarly shaped items.
A separate bottom pocket takes the worry out of where to store shoes or dirty items away from the rest of your gear. Dual side pockets and a top pocket store water bottles, a small umbrella, and quick-access items such as a phone and wallet.
And the organization continues inside. Interior pockets on the front panel wings let you access smaller items without needing to rummage, while additional pockets on the interior rear panel store flatter items.
City style and weather protection in one
A combination of 1000D nylon and a polyester coated with tarpaulin keep the bag lightweight (0.95 kg) while protecting gear from the elements. And the sleek aesthetics and clean silhouette give this pack the flexibility to move swiftly from work to play.
Small details for a big comfort boost
The pack integrates a variety of features to improve carry comfort while you’re on the move. Load lifter straps, an adjustable sternum strap, and honeycomb padded shoulder straps help keep the load comfortably secure. And when it’s time to travel, an inbuilt trolley strap allows your wheeled luggage to do the heavy lifting. Plus a top handle provides grab-and-go portability.
Access-focused to zip through your day
