2020 Urban Series shipping now! Check out the video to see the inside of the Urban Series bags. We promise to upload more interior images soon. 

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.
