Great office backpack

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Matt from Cincinnati on Saturday, March 4, 2017
I've taken this to work for the past two weeks or so now, and it's holding up well. Enough space for a 15" laptop in the sleeve if you need it, otherwise the sleeve works well as an organizer between papers and the rest of your stuff. Main compartment can hold specialty-size paper if you need it; I've hauled multiple sets of B4-size paper, and even some 11x17 if you leave enough space for it to lie from bottom front to top back of the pack. The built-in organization works well for a few pens, pencils, and a calendar or two. The front compartment is a little awkward, as the pocket goes all the way to the bottom of the pack, so it's tough to operate with one hand if you're you're trying to get to something quick. The top mini-pocket works well for office ID's and zip drives, and is thin enough for the NFC to work on badged doors if you don't want to pull your ID out of your backpack. The water bottle pockets unfortunately have the same problems that other backpacks have, in that they will dig into the main compartment if they're full. That was kind of expected, though, and I only use them for small items like a raincover and assorted odds and ends. I haven't tried it for business travel yet, but I could see it working well for overnighters.

4/5 just because the zipper could be better if it extended all the way down to the bottom, and getting a laptop or large items in and out of the pack is a little more awkward than it should be. 100% still functional though. Great to have a professional-looking backpack with all the features one expects from an outdoor company, especially the sternum strap. Doesn't look out of place when you're going in for a meeting!
