Oakley combined all the best features from their individual backpacks for the kitchen sink pack. This bag gets its name from the one item you might not be able to carry inside it.
Honestly this is a way over-engineered bag which is pretty much the point.
I love the size. I am 6'4 260lbs. This backpack doesn't make me feel like I am carrying a purse on my back.
OK I’ve used his backpack for about six months now I’ve decided to write a review .. this particular supplier what they sent me was exactly the description in quality I expected ....Made out of very fine materials everything was on point I’ve taken this backpack all over the world now... hands down the best backpacks I have ever owned ... I have had over 75 pounds of stuff in it before and it held together beautifully. I especially love the top pocket I can put my headphones and keep them safe from getting squished..the side pockets are actually rather big I have put a lot of stuff in them before..
I had the non-Lx version of this backpack for several years but accidentally broke the laptop side-zipper (my fault, not a fault of the bag's workmanship). Unfortunately Oakley doesn't do repairs so i researched replacement bags. Every bag I looked at just couldn't compare to the Kitchen Sink. I finally decided to just buy the same bag again although I liked the color of the Lx version. I was pleasantly surprised to discover a feature I didn't even know my old bag had, the quick-latch clips that hold the cover for the main compartment detach by just pulling on the nylon tabs. I was always pushing the spring open to unlatch. Very cool!
Great backpack. Great design. Great quality.
Great backpack! I already have the Kitchen Sink Lx and Kitchen Sink in black. Lots of room to storage you cloths, pair of shoes, electronics, iPad Pro, 15 inch laptop and any knick-knacks/accessories you might have.
One of the best backpacks you’ll own. This is my sons first Oakley bag. I’ve had the original
I choose this because I was looking for a backpack that would serve as a good laptop case, hiking bag, and a good travel backpack. I was a little nervous paying the amount I did and it not meeting my expectations in quality. When I received it, that nervousness quickly vanished as the quality exceeded my expectations. The structure and materials are great. This backpack is legit and one that I will definitely be using for a very long time.
This is the most versatile backpack I've ever owned. Perfect for commuting, sports and travel. The top flap keeps contents completely dry in moderate rain (just tested that this morning). The easy access zipper for the laptop compartment means you don't have to un-clip the hood. The standard version of the Kitchen SInk has a look that is totally badass, which I am guessing is popular with a certain crowd (sporty?). I personally found it to be over the top for myself, which is why I opted for an Lx version, which I find has a more grown-up style. For light loads, like when commuting, you can tighten the compression straps on the side to keep the bag nice and tight. For travelling, the bag is a pretty close match for the maximum carry-on size on most airlines, and the front pocket is perfect for passport, boarding pass and pen. As for hiking and other sports, this bag definitely feels very rugged but I have not owned it long enough to know for sure. The zipper tabs, which are often one of the first things to break on backpacks, are made small pieces of steel cable, which seem practically indestructible. The clips that hold the top flap also seem super sturdy. Overall, I would say this product is great for people who prefer to own only one bag, but a really good one.
