The Path features a water-bottle sleeve big enough to fit a standard reusable water bottle, as well as a zippered side pocket, several inner pockets that make it easier to compartmentalize odds and ends (like earbuds, keys, pens, and documents), and compartments that will fit a tablet, e-reader, and other electronic devices. Its faux-fur-lined laptop sleeve is a nice touch, a subtle detail that adds an air of luxury that we appreciate, especially for a bag that we just dropped $80 on.
Our testers generally found the bag to be supportive and comfortable; it feels sturdy and appears to be the product of quality workmanship and careful design. It’s been crafted with what Incase calls “abrasion-resistant” fabric, designed to be protective in the face of potential scrapes and punctures and generally withstand the abuse of everyday wear and tear. (If it doesn’t live up to that promise, Incase offers a one-year warranty on all its products.) Its adjustable straps feature breathable mesh — a thoughtful detail that might help to mitigate the misery of a sweaty summer commute or exploring a city by foot all day.
