The 'S' line of packs takes Eberlestock's design ethic of bringing you "more than meets the eye" in an entirely new direction. With a unique aesthetic, the packs are purposely made with a minimalist exterior combined with a feature-rich interior. Perhaps you're one of those people who wants a pack to carry your weapon, but you don't want it to scream "military" or "hunter." Without question, the 'S' packs, originally conceived to complement our Stealth Rifle Chassis, look civilian, as in civil, and sporty.
If you want a slim-line day bag that works equally well as a laptop carrier or as a pack for a 7" barreled M4, check out the S25 Cherry Bomb. In our field trials with the packs, the Cherry Bomb became thought of as a "vertical briefcase." With the waist belt removed, it's an ultra-comfortable, handy little pack that is right at home running through airports or going from home-to-car-to-office and back. No doubt you'll spot these bags riding the subways of the world with the morning commute.
-- In the first "public" compartment, you'll find translucent slip-pockets suitable for iphones, with a double pen slot between them, a semi-rigid document / laptop sleeve (which alternates as a hydration bladder stowage pocket, as shown above), opposing rows of MOLLE/PALS type webbing, and a mesh pocket inside the front door.
-- In the second, "private" compartment, you'll find another sleeve suitable for a laptop, plus the main weapon stowage compartment. This is sized for a 7" barreled M4 or similar proportioned weapon (Primary Weapons Systems Diablo shown above). The pack measures 24.5" x 11", and this pocket uses the full dimensions. Also here, you'll find a nice organizer assembly, with two padded magazine / iphone / compact camera compartments, pen sleeves, a zippered pocket, a tuck-pocket, and a key-keeper hook.
-- The pack includes a rain cover stowed in a pocket in the bottom.
-- Removable waistbelt has two zippered pockets (although our favorite way to use this pack is executive-style, with the waistbelt removed).
