The Urban Series is something new for 2020: Vanquest was asked by many of you to create a line of sleek and discreet EDC (everyday carry) bags that are CCW compatible with the same durability, organization and quality that Vanquest is known for. In other words, a perfect companion for your daily errands, work, and school.

The CARBIDE-8 is an 8-liter compact, multi-layered convertible sling backpack. Carrying your tech with you everywhere just became easier with its padded tablet / laptop pocket, orange high-vis loop panels for custom organization, ToughMesh™ pockets, and admin organization for your EDC (everyday carry) items. The CARBIDE also helps bridge the gap between sling and backpack by converting from a sling into a two-shoulder bag with two included quick adjustment straps.

Combined with our 400-D UrbanBlend™ Nylon-Poly fabric with multi-PU coatings on both sides for water-resistance and protection from the elements, you have a compact and minimalist setup that is weather-protected for your daily essentials.
