      This is the one!!

      I had the previous version of this backpack and just never liked the lack of functionality. Having said that, I think they listened to all their customer and the 2.0 has the wonderful quality AND the functionality! Kudos Kelly Moore! LOVE IT!

      Love it!

      Amazingly beautiful bag. Extremely functional and spacious. The only reason it didn’t get 5 stars is that it’s heavy with no gear in it!!

      Well made! Looking forward to using it for many years!

      Awesome Bag... Great Quality and Service!

      YES!! We bought this on pre-release for our high school graduate who loves photography so much she is headed to college to study photography and film. A little unsure spending this amount sight unseen on a new product we are unfamiliar with. Took the chance... Glad we did!! We were so impressed. The bag is better than we expected. She absolutely LOVED it! I know it will be something that will last and be a constant staple in her photographer journeys. Their customer service is wonderful, too. I contacted them to find out if we could get it delivered in time for her graduation party day as it was released that week. Wasn't sure so had a back up photo of it as "on the way." But...We got it in time! Thankful we found this company. So satisfied I may need to order a bag for myself at some point. :) Will definitely look to Kelly Moore for any other photographers we need to buy for.

      Beautiful backpack

      This backpack is not only perfectly gorgeous, but so well constructed you will have it for years no matter how abusive you are. The color is just right. One thing I like the most is it’s low key appearance. It doesn’t have loads of pockets on the outside, when I’m using it I’m not constantly bumping into people and things. I truly love this backpack and looking forward to beating it up because I know it will be even more beautiful in the future.

      OMG! I could not love this bag more!

      I vacillated back and forth whether or not to grab the original Pilot backpack for weeks if not months or wait for this Pilot 2.0 to be released. I am so happy I waited! I love the dark green canvas paired with the tan leather trim...quite striking. The best part is that this bag is so very cool to look at but it is definitely the most functional bag I own to date! I am slightly obsessed to be completely honest. I carry my 13 inch MacBook Pro, iPad Pro, Nikon d750 with my Nikkor 24-70 attached.... battery charger and spare battery, a few cables for various devices, my iPhone, cash/cards, keys - plus lunch and a jacket. All fits nicely and well organized. The straps stay nice and tight despite all of the weight inside the bag and this bag gets super heavy but doesn't hurt to carry on one or both shoulders. Love this bag! thanks Kelly Moore for such a well thought out bag!

      I love everything about the bag, except the stiffness of the material. I’m hoping it becomes softer.

      Great Service

      My wife loves her new bag! I purchased this as a birthday gift for my wife and she was also heading to a training course in Chicago after ordering it I realized it would only arrive after she has left. I contacted Kelly Moore Bag customer service and they were able to make an address change. Thank you so much!
