Key Specs: Nitecore BP23 Backpack
Nitecore does more than flashlights. Here’s a great example – their BP23 backpack. First off, this thing looks great in all black 600D polyester (waterproof) and doesn’t appear overly bulky despite it’s generous capacity. Everything is high quality from the zippers to the straps and buckles. It feels like Nitecore didn’t skimp on the design here – everything you see is functional and yet blends in well with the overall appearance.
- Multiple compartments for flexible packing
- Spacious main compartment available to carry a 15.6″ laptop/tablet
- The three-way divider in the front compartment provides access to items from various directions
- Wearproof 600D Polyester fabric with dirt and water resistant coating
- High-visibility orange interior lining for identification in low light conditions
- Trolley sleeve design for sliding over the luggage handle
- Multiple handles at all four sides for versatile carrying
- Frontal MOLLE system and loop surface for pouches, tools, and modular extensions
- Premium carrying system for outstanding ergonomic comfort and breathability
In wearing the BP23 I found it to be comfortable – the padding on the back panel really helps. There are two grab handles as well as a bunch of loops and convenient pockets/pouches for all your gear.
Inside you have a laptop sleeve (up to 15.6 in) and then a large liner pocket plus a couple of smaller mesh pockets. The interior is black with orange accents which adds to the overall aesthetics. It’s well thought out and I would have no concerns using this for either daily commute or camping trip. Versatility is the key here.
My only gripe is lack of water bottle storage on the exterior. Not a major pain point as you can use a carabiner on the loops as an alternative, but still.
Overall the Nitecore BP23 backpack is a good looking but highly functional pack with plenty of room for your gear. Kudos to Nitecore for branching out into new categories of product offerings and leveraging their strong connections with the EDC community. Check it out Amazon
