    Works great, as expected. Plenty of pockets and pouches. Comfortable and neat looking. Only reason for 4 stars is one of the stitching between two sleeve pockets started coming undone, but not a big deal, and easy to fix.

    I bought this bag in the green color and it turned out to be a more gray/green than I expected, but I love it even more! The material is quality, the zips are very well constructed, and it has SO many pockets. I bring it to work and I'm pretty sure I find new pockets every day. The TSA laptop pocket is super useful and has a very soft interior.The bag lays very flat so it is easy to bring on public transport and keep it out of everyone's way. I've seen other reviews with concerns that it is too long/large but I'm 5'1" and I don't think it looks overly large on me, so I think it'll suit just about anyone!

    I searched many sites looking for just the right pack for my laptop. This fit every need. I was more than pleased at the quality and utility of this pack and my 15" fits in it perfect. It might be a bit tight for a 17" though. One thing I like about it is that the laptop goes in to a well padded compartment all the way in the back which opens and lays flat. Very convenient.

    I had a Timbuk2 backpack a few years ago that was stolen, so after my interim backpack got a hole in it I thought it was time for a new one.

    I really like this bag, it's relatively professional (as much as a backpack can be) and slim. I was worried it would look big, but I'm 5'7" and it looks fine on. There's lots of space and convenient organizing pockets. The laptop slot is kind of a pain to get to, but you get used to it.

    I had a Timbuk2 a couple years ago that got stolen and it seemed like time for a new one. This is great! The color is a nice dark blue that looks professional and clean. There are lots of organizing pockets, and I love that it won't get fat and overstuffed. I always carry a water bottle, so I'm glad there's a spot for that.

    I was worried it would be too big for me (5'7, female), but it looks great. The sleeve fits by 15" macbook very well. The first few times I put in/out were a bit awkward, but I have the hang of it now.

    • No, it doesn't look like it. It has a carrying handle on the side, but if you wanted to put it over a suitcase handle you'd have to jury-rig it. It is a backpack though so it's not like you'd have anything else in your hands while you're traveling.

    • This item does not have a slip panel way to slide the backpack onto the handle of the suitcase.
