This is a backpack for a person that uses a skateboard. It was my error in not looking at it closer.There are not many different compartments in the back pack as I have found with other Dakine backpacks. It is a 5 star for quality for sure, but not a 5 star for versatility. The part where you would slide a laptop into is really only for a laptop. It is a thin space designed specifically for a laptop.There are also Velcro strips on the top and bottom where you can put a skateboard or a coat. I use backpacks for travel, and family trips. I need larger spaces and more spaces. So it went back and I ordered a different Dakine. They made fantastic quality backpacks and Sierra sells them for an exceptionally low price! Kudos to STP once again!

Nice fabric and features. Water bottle pockets are large enough and secure. It has a laptop sleeve + main center compartment + two organizer pockets on front. I needed one more mid size compartment for laptop cords, etc, so I returned it. Otherwise a great pack.

This is my second purchase of a Duel backpack - it was a no brainer for the price ($25). This backpack has several pockets that live up to performance hype. i beat the other to a pulp over three years - looking forward to getting the same value out this one.
