I am very happy with this purchase and it is one of the best branded items I have ever bought and look forward to more travels with this backpack.
I used this for a 10 day trip to Scandinavia last summer. My hubby and daughter also had the same bag. The bag is well made, sturdy and great for carrying on the plane - it's been on several airlines and was within their size requirements so no probs there. The laptop section is well padded and the bag easy to padlock. I have recommended this bag to a lot of people!
I’ve traveled with this bag on 14 trips, in less than a year. I work for an airline and travel often. The bag will fit small and large spaces. It even squeezed under the chair in front of me once! This bag is durable, spacious and the straps are comfortable enough. The only time the straps hurt are when you have the bag on for an abnormally long time. Zippers work well, have never gotten stuck. The interior is spacious and I would suggest using packing cubes.
I’m on my first trip with this backpack and it serves me well. Packing a pig of a desktop-equivalent Dell laptop and a ridiculous winter parka up to Traverse City MI in the dead of winter. Backpack is doing fine! Will let you know how it holds up but so far I would recommend buying one!
