The laptop compartment is very secure and also allows for a tablet to be carried along with the laptop, or two laptops at the same time: one strapped in and one in the additional pocket.
It will be my daily driver for as long as it lasts.My only small gripe is the permanently placed bottle opener at the top of the right strap.
I'm willing to overlook it simply because the rest of the bag fits my needs perfectly and feels great.
I bought this bag in 2016 and have been using it alternately with my other bags.
I had no problem packing for 3 days trip with laptop as the bag is very spacious.
Not good for day to day.No external pockets keeps it sleek, but I wish there was something easy to access for keys and other knick knacks.The strap positioning makes the laptop pocket hard to get the laptop in and out.The straps themselves don't make for comfortable one shoulder lugging.
The front side pocket is been the most painful thing because it opens sideways, which couldn't be more counterintuitive for a backpack – and because of that, early on in using it I lost a new camera because it slid out the side zipper while I was hiking.
I have lost other things out of the side zipper, too and the very fact that the bag's design demands vigilance in making sure that all the zippers are closed at the various angles is in itself a design FAIL I've never seen in any backpack I've ever owned.3.
I guess the best that can be said for this is since it insulates on your back so poorly that if on a chilly day, if you happen to not want to wear a jacket it will keep your back quite warm; but if you're wearing the backpack in any weather over 68° you can just anticipate that when you arrive at your destination, you will have a large puddle in the back of your shirt.7.
For a product that purports to be used as a bag or a backpack, there is no way to detach the backpack straps to tuck them away, and both the top handle andinside handle are simply pieces of flat nylon cording, and you are a block away from slicing into your hands if you carry anything of weight in this bag.8.
