Durable, Travel-Ready, Oversized School Pack WITH All the Bells and Whistles

This backpack is exactly what I was hoping for. Basically a sturdy, well-made day pack that can serve for light hiking and/or airline/general travel. I needed something for my upcoming 5-week trip to China. Fits far more than a standard school backpack with additional organizing pockets and adjustable straps, but is not so oversized that it is cumbersome/weighty for airline travel.

It DOES fit my Macbook Pro 15" (2015) WITH it's hard case. It's just a tight squeeze through the zipper opening and you have to finegal it into place, but once you've got the opening right, the whole thing slides right through. There's actually additional inch or space in the pocket once the computer is inside.

There are two main access points into the pack, and I like that the outer/upper one has an interior mesh pocket to potentially hold snacks or a sandwich or other easily accessible essentials. Side pocket JUST barely fits my 64 oz Kleen Kanteen, but it does go in. Nice assortment of interior pockets so that things are well-organized and easy to find. I also got a memory foam neck pillow for my 15 hour flight and that fits inside with plenty of room for a sweatshirt, notebook, and other items without hogging all of the space.

I got Python green color which is fun and not too bright yet easily identifiable.
