Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not good enoughtTest it for a day, it is not good enoughtGood: 1. nice look2. Double-Side water pocket, good for using in city to carry water3. lots of place to hold my small things4. the only one who can stand on the ground by itselfBad:1. The water bottle pockets can't carry big water bottle. They should be the same stretchy as coluee or have a stretchy top sling as 2day. 2. due to it is slim, the top pocket can not countain something bigger than a headphone3. 3zip not extend to the bottom, which make it look differrent but can not get thing easiler4. It has the same size as 2day and the same weight. It should have a better carrying system just like 2day(even cost extra 30$)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Coulee with a laptop pocketI’m a long time fan of the Coulee series, owning both a Coulee 25 and Coulee 30. I’ve often felt that the two things that would make the Coulee even better are 1) adding a laptop sleeve, and 2) adding some internal organization. So when the Catalyst 26 launched, it appeared my wishes were answered and I jumped on it. It added both of the features I’d been wishing for the Coulee, but unfortunately it doesn’t have the two additional exterior pockets which the Coulee has and I find very useful. I’ve only had the Catalyst for a week but so far I’m highly impressed. For all intents and purposes, it’s basically a Coulee with a laptop pocket so I recommend reading Coulee reviews since at the time of this writing there are no Catalyst reviews but plenty of Coulee reviews. If you like what you’re reading about the Coulee and you need a laptop pocket, then the Catalyst is probably the bag for you. I will mention a couple of minor quibbles I’ve noticed so far:1. I wish the material for the water bottle pockets was the same stretchy material that the Coulee uses. (I’ll add for reference that my 26 ounce Yeti tumbler fits fine in the water bottle pockets).2. I wish it had the 2 extra exterior pockets that the Coulee has. (I also realize some people prefer a sleeker look without those pockets).3. The upper brain compartment pocket on the lid is not as spacious as the one on my Coulee 25. It feels like there’s less material on the lid and the pocket doesn’t expand upwards as much.4. I wish the vertical zipper of the 3-zip opening extended all the way to the bottom of the bag. The Catalyst doesn’t open as wide as my Coulee’s. Having said that, the Catalyst will stand up on its own and the Coulee doesn’t, so perhaps the design of the bottom of the Catalyst and the slightly shortened zipper are what allows it to stand up on its own. 5. I wish the main pocket had some Zoid attachment loops like the new Coulee 30 does. And frankly I wish ALL MR bags had those loops. It should just be a standard thing that all bags have internal attachment loops and offer several size Zoid bags that can attach to them. But all things considered the Catalyst will probably completely replace my Coulee’s, as well as probably replacing the other laptop bag that I use for work, becoming my single “do it all” bag for travel, work, and EDC.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all around bagI purchased this bag for three uses and found that it fits all of my requirements. I use this bag for EDC (around town and work), personal bag on flights, and day trip bag for hikes. I really like the laptop compartment and side bottle holders. You can easily fit the Nalgene bottle in either side.The quality is spot on with no defects. The zippers so far are a little more difficult to pull compared to a pants or jacket zipper. I got the all gray color and wished they offered some different colors that what they currently have. Maybe some earth tones.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Water bottle wasteIt’s solid construction but small water bottle pockets make them useless for anything not skinny. The interior is bright but pack must be full in order to not sag and flop. Not bad, but not great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great EDC bagLove the bag! Lots of organization, in fact maybe on the edge of too much. The only negative thing I can say is, if you have a large chest and you carry a laptop, the straps get narrow and start to dig in a little. Without the laptop, I can comfortably carry it all day. Thanks MR!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great everyday office bag/ short hiking trip bagBought this bag as soon as it released (26L in Stone and Shadow). I had been looking at getting a new bag for quite some time and have used it everyday since buying. My largest complaint like other's is the lack of stretchy material in the water bottle side pockets, I would like to see a stretchy material with a drawstring for smaller objects to secure them or keep them from falling out. I can fit a 34oz Orca bottle but it's a squeeze especially with the main compartment being full. Other than that I love this bag through and through. The laptop sleeve in the back is spacious and suspended from the bottom of the bag so you don't have to worry about banging around your laptop/tablet on the ground. The internal mesh organization pockets and the top lid lends to a good level of organization for smaller things like cords, headlamps, portable chargers, etc. The load lifters are nice to keep the bag close to the back and adjust the fit to exactly how you want it. For an everyday bag in and out of the office this just about as versatile as it gets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for everyday CarryIt’s a great gray man bag if you are looking for a nice concealed carry pack but also good for travel and everyday use. Love all the features, has everything I was looking for and then some. Built like a tank.
