This backpack is so amazing and fits my life so perfectly! I'm a field auditor and need to take my laptop to tons of different locations in the city. Thus, often I am on public transit - buses and trains -- and I also do a lot of walking. Plus, in the summer, at lunchtime, I love to rollerblade around parks. This backpack fits all of this perfectly!
It fits my 15.4" HP laptop as if they were made for each other and the backpack has two pockets with the laptop compartment that hold extra batteries, power cords, disk drives, etc. Plus, there's still room for my super cool lunchbox (packed with a lunch) in the same compartment!
The next big pocket fits, a novel, two magazines, three case files for work, and my thermos full of coffee - with room to spare. There is a pocket the hangs down that holds full-size IPods and big headphones with no problem. An even more awesome feature is that the bag has a hole in the top (covered by a weather-proof flap) that lets you run your headphones out of your backpack straight to your ears! :)
Next, there is a little pocket that perfectly fits all my bus tokens and schedules.
Then, the front pocket has room for a full-size 10-key calculator, 5 pens, business cards, stationary, paperclips, rubber bands, and a few other things -- all in separate pouches or pockets and with plenty of room to spare. I could probably fit a few more novels in there if I wanted! Plus, there is a cell phone pouch in this pocket that fits my phone perfectly!
The outside of the backpack has pouches for two bottles of water on the sides and another cell phone holder on the strap with a sunglasses holder on the other strap.
If I took my files and books out, the backpack also has plenty of room for an inkjet printer and accessories in the second main pouch.
When fully loaded, the backpack is heavy, but the straps are so comfortable that I had no problem wearing it fully-loaded for an hour today.
This backpack is the most awesome thing for my work life that I could ever imagine! Plus, it is extremely well-made and the price is mind-bogglingly low considering everything. This backpack needs to be bought. Trust me. You will thank yourself.
I added some of my own pictures to show the backpack fully-loaded.
