by fromPhenomenal I'm a shift work guy. Spend most of my days bouncing back and forth and every once in a while it seems I get to go home to my wife and kid. I bought this backpack because on top of working 56+ hours a week I decided to go back to school online and get another degree. This bag has been an absolute life saver. Zippers are stout and don't foresee any problems with them. Compartments are perfect. (I thought it was going to be too big but I usually end up being grateful I have extra space). Computer department has a nice pad on the bottom where the computer will get the most abuse. Side zip prevents the laptop from falling out when you forget to zip it up. Main compartment holds my folder (which is a 3" zipper binder that is about as big as any I have seen) plus a couple of college level text books. Organizational compartment is methodical and practical. Little zipper pocket on top is perfect for portable mouse. Side zipper on lower right holds charger and cables. Opposite side is mesh and holds a medium gatorade. Even the two front zipper pockets are awesome. It looks like one pocket with two zippers but it is actually 2 separate pockets. I am 6'1 and 185 lbs and this bag fits me great. Might be a little bulky looking on a girl but the logistics of it would make it worth it. All in all I give this a 5/5 because I am very happy with it and can't even think of ways to improve it.

by fromBest Backpack in the World! Seriously! My boyfriend lives and works in NYC and commutes each day with his heavy laptop. The old one finally gave out, allowing him to upgrade to this fantastic North Face Surge II. Back strain, gone. Neck strain, gone. This backpack goes WAY beyond being a perfectly designed carry-all for your laptop and gear, it's just really a smart investment. Especially at this price. In addition, it's really well-appointed, from the designated compartment for laptop and iPad/tablet to the large main compartment, to the front compartment, which doubles as an organizer and wallet, to the stash space for your cord and fleece-lined sunglasses/phone pocket on the front. It's just so good. Everything you need is right there. They thought of everything. I asked him yesterday if he liked it and he said, "LOVE it!" So I bought a women's version for myself. I'm happy too!

by fromGreat Laptop Backpack I use this when riding my bike so the bright yellow color is perfect. The laptop sleeve is great for a 15" MBP and it also has an iPad sleeve. When I don't have my laptop, I use the laptop compartment for my bike lock, which really works well because the back of the bag has a rigid plastic frame so I don't feel it at all. I ride hard so move a lot going up hills, etc. The compression straps let me tighten it down and it stays stable on my back when I stand up. It also has lots of (more than enough) compartments for storage. The only gripe is that it only has one water bottle holder, and against the odds, it's on the left side, but it's is a minor inconvenience. Overall, it's worth the money and I highly recommend this bag whether riding or walking.
