Here's a little insight into one of the many features of the VLES GO-bag. Presumably your go bag is stocked and ready for you to just grab and leave. In reality, you'll probably want your laptop or tablet as well.
Being able to slip your laptop into an exterior compartment is much faster than opening a bag, any kind of bag, and finding a home for it. When the goal is to get out as fast as possible, sometimes in a matter of seconds, you need the speed. Important as well is having access to your laptop once you are out. Again, it's about speed, convenience, and not needing to open your go bag for the world to see what you're carrying.
The exterior laptop compartment in the VLES GO-bag is padded, made of the same waterproof fabric as the rest of the bag, and zips with the highest quality YKK zipper. It is readily accessible when your GO-bag is in both backpack mode and in roll mode.
