Decided to go a little more upscale with my work backpack. Dealing with more upper level customer management--so thought it was time to slightly improve my image and looking for something that could double as a simple and quick weekend bag. Since I am gypsy and live out of my suitcase everything needs to have at least double duty. So after reviewing various options this seemed to be the best.
Have had it for over one year (China, Mexico, Hong Kong, and counting) and it has held up. This is as expected because the quality was first class and very functional. As strictly a backpack it is not very good--but looking for a work/short trip backpack for which it excels at. The only thing that I wish it had (-1 star) would be a sternum strap that make it just a little more functional.
In summary--very pleased with the quality, features, and design of the backpack.
I use this for business travel. Pack has enough room for short trips and can fit under the seat or in the overhead storage in regional jets. The portion of the pack that holds the computer is easily accessible for security screening. The front pocket provides space for pens note pads etc. Because its a back pack its easier to scramble through large airports (DIA, SLC) when rushing to make connections. And it has a side strap which allows you to carry it sideways so it looks more like a briefcase when headed into meetings.
This is really an amazing bag. I love the quality and construction and it fits my 17" Unibody Macbook Pro easy and incredibly secure. really comfortable to wear and holds EVERYTHING i need. I cant wait to travel this holidays, for I know it will be easy with my new backpack!! Did I say I LOVE this bag..
