    05/30/15: Five weeks of almost daily use later, this pack is still serving me perfectly. No complaints. This pack is worth every penny (and many, many more) so far.

    ———————–

    I’ve been using this pack for about 5 weeks now for my work commute. I’m also planning to use it as my airline carry-on for an international trip in June 2015. So far, I’m 100% satisfied with it. Below are my reasons.

    It’s sturdily made with high-quality materials, and it looks great. There are some rather silly touches I’ll probably be removing, such as a sewn-on cell phone label for a pocket on one of the shoulder straps–the pocket might accept candybar or clamshell phones from circa 2005, but there’s no way a modern smartphone would fit in that tiny pocket (and honestly, would you keep one there, anyway?); however, it certainly would accommodate lip balm tubes, a mini flashlight, an energy bar, a packet or two of energy gel, or similarly sized items.

    There’s a substantial handle on the top of the pack that makes heaving the thing in and out of a car floorboard (for example) much easier. I do have some doubt about the attachment points and their dependability over time, but so far they show no hint of failure.

    The pack is very comfortable. riding perfectly on my lower back, just above my hip bones, as it should. (I’m a 5′ 7″ male — 5′ 8″ when I’m feeling superb.) The compression straps work well to reduce bulk. The shoulder strap adjusters have a thumb hole in the plastic tab — one of many small but thoughtful design features you get with this pack.

    The pack fits my mid-2012 MacBook Pro Retina 15.4-inch in the designated padded sleeve pocket with room to spare (I’ve also gotten a very bulky Lenovo Thinkpad R500 in it with no problem, though in the compartment just forward of the designated sleeve pocket). There is a strap to restrain the laptop, though I’ve never felt the need to use it for daily purposes; it’s likely there for an airport security check where you would zip the laptop compartment completely open for the conveyor belt–a procedure that I’ll believe is acceptable to the authorities when I witness it). When properly loaded, the pack stands rigidly upright at full attention (similar packs I’ve tried fall over or collapse in upon themselves, which is far more annoying than it might sound).

    The middle compartment is divided into three sections for books, files, documents, manila envelopes, notebooks, magazines, newspapers, a bluetooth keyboard — whatever makes sense for you. Or use the compartment for large or bulky items — the dividers collapse flat.

    It’s a thoughtfully designed pack suitable for commuting to work or for travel. It’s not really suitable for outdoor activities since it’s not designed for that (no sternum strap, no lumbar strap, too heavy, inappropriate compartmentalization, a tad bulky, no hydration features, etc.), but it certainly would do in a pinch. You *might* even be able to force a hydration tube through the headphone port from the middle compartment. Regarding water bottles, the reviews so far have been a little unclear, in my opinion. On each side is a sizable zippered pocket that at first blush seems perfectly unsuited for water bottles. However, each one contains an elastic strap that easily encompasses my 40-oz Klean Kanteen. Bear in mind there is no cinch mechanism, so your bottle(s) could easily fall out. But if you don’t roughhouse the bag, bottles should stay put. Regarding these side pockets, I want to mention a small detail that indicates the thoughtfulness of design: The zipper closes at your back, not at the outside surface, making pickpocketing that much more difficult. Clearly not an impenetrable barrier, but still, very thoughtful.

    One other detail that I have mixed feelings about: There’s a zippered pocket (presumably a security pocket) at the bottom of the pack against your back. I can’t quite imagine what one might put there, especially given the tendency for sweat at that point. But it’s there if you need it.

    There’s only one aspect of this pack that feels a little underwhelming, and that’s the selection of storage pockets in the outermost section. They’re fine, and varied (including a very welcome zippered pocket), but generally speaking they’re not deep enough to generate full confidence that items placed in them will be secure. Still, it’s nice to have them.

    Bottom line: This is a fantastic pack for commuters, students, technicians, travelers, or similar applications. I am fully satisfied, especially given Amazon’s current bargain-basement price of $40 (as of 4/24/15).

    If I’m able, I’ll upload some photos of features that don’t appear to have been addressed in other reviews.

    I’m a college student and I wanted a backpack that can carry my laptop, ipad and accessories while hold all my books. Finally I found it. This backpack can carry a large amount of stuff an a well-organized, evenly distributed way. It seems really high quality, no stitching is having issues, and the color and design are nice. I am strongly recommending it to all my friends.
