When I first for this pack a couple weeks ago I was very doubtful that I was going to keep it. I was thinking of returning it for a Havoc 30 (even if is a bit more overt tactical). However the box pack has grown on me. While not full of pockets it has enough. With the generous loop to add accessory pouches as you want or need. Here is what sold me. While working stadium security I fit this in the bag.

What we need now is more hook and loop accessories to go in these bags. Thanks for the great product.

Slightly more cool than functional
I've been running the Covrt Boxpack pretty much every day for about 3 weeks now, and overall, I'm happy with it. The quality of materials is excellent, and the Tundra color looks really good. The shoulder straps and padded back are very comfortable, and contour to fit the shape of my back and shoulders, so I can wear it all day without any hot spots or soreness. The Boxpack does not have huge size capacity though, so I find the chest strap and the hip strap unnecessary and even a nuisance, since you're not going to be able to load It down. Someday soon, I'm just going to cut off the hip strap. Right now it's fastened and just tightened all the way down, so it's out of my way, and that's working pretty well for me. The laptop/plate sleeve is good, and the zippered back access makes the sleeve and the pen pocket very convenient to get to, although it isn't as easy to reach the main compartment from there. The pen pocket is probably the worst part of the Boxpack. It's small and has no give in it, so it's a pain to pull and replace pens and small things. It's only big enough to reach a hand into it, and then you can't see what you're reaching for. The main compartment is not very big, but it is deceptively deep. The compartment is made smaller if you have stuff packed into the outside pockets as well, as they expand inward into the pack rather than outward. The side pouches won't carry a water bottle larger than a 20 oz. (no nalgene, etc). The bottom pocket is really nice and spacious, but I've found that I have to fill it to capacity in order to weigh down the pack so it will keep its shape. With a pistol and extra mag loaded, the pack wants to kind of flatten down, so filling up that bottom pocket really helps to prevent it. The covert carry pocket is excellent. I have been carrying the pack running a full size 1911 with a CM 10 round mag, and an extra mag. There is absolutely no imprinting on the outside of the pocket, event if you press around the edges of the pistol. The only downside to the carry pocket is the Velcro Closure. It works well right now, but it will inevitably fray and become less functional as time goes on. I think it would be better to add a few snap buttons in addition to the Velcro, and I'll probably do that. This Covrt Boxpack is very cool looking, but not "tacticool". There are no 5.11 markings on it, except on the back padding, where no one will see it. Its quality of materials and ergonomics are exactly what you'd expect from a 5.11 product, but it is definitely not for everyone.
ProsCool looking Comfortable Great concealment Not "tacticool" Great quality
ConsSmall side and pen pockets Small main compartment Unnecessary chest and hip straps Needs closure failsafes for carry option

Does this have provision for a water reservoir?
this item does not have a dedicated hydration pocket but you could fit on in the bag in a few areas but it was not designed specifically for that reason.
