Those boots look like the ones from the book “Wild”, which is a fantastic read by the way!I caved and bought the Oil Finish Rucksack, and am happy with it! No problems with the finish quality at all. Tag says made in Vietnam. All stitching is tight and straight, and seams are tidy and even. I loaded it with gym and work gear to come into campus this morning so snapped some quick pics to share here for anyone interested.
The inside has a full-length padded laptop pocket, plus a space behind it that is useful for a light jacket, magazines, paperwork etc. The rest of the main compartment is a cave with no pockets nor other organisation. There is a drawstring neck closure to the main compartment that can stay folded down and out of the way, but in that position it covers the laptop sleeve (no problem if you don't use it).
The side bottle pockets are flat, so consume inner space if you insert a bottle; if the pack were full it'd be a PITA to get a bottle back in after removing it if stuff shifts a little. The front pockets have no internal organisation. The G-hooks to close the flap work well but you must ensure they're completely seated all the way in or will slide open.
In these shots it is empty and the sides trapeze out. I might customise mine with snaps on each side near the top to cinch it in a bit when not full. It really is a giant rectangle.
