Summary: has good amount of pockets and storage for all my requirements. and best of all my 17" HP laptop fits..... Comfy padding on the back, i like the back side ventilation "air channel" down the center between the padding, strap adjustments are good and well padded at the shoulders. I would look at this brand again, next time i need new backpack.
Summary: This is a good value for price. It's the perfect sleek fit for 17"laptop. It has nice front zipper compartment for cords and accessories. I would not try to use it for both laptop and book bag. The padding is kind of thin.
Pros: I've been using this backpack for over a year and consider this the best backpack I have ever used. The padding is great, it is on the sides, front, back, top, AND on the bottom. I wanted something that would hold some extra papers and notebooks, but not something very bulky. I also wanted something discrete (I hate backpacks with bright colors anywhere). This fits the bill perfectly. I bring it everyday on my commute to work and also for all of my business travels.
Cons: This is nit picking, but I would like to have some more pockets in the front compartment. It has three pockets now with some pen holders and business card holders.
Summary: Returned a different Case Logic case, as it was a bit difficult to get my laptop in and out. When I saw this case, I had to give a chance, and glad I did! There are 2 different areas where I can choose to put my laptop, and both open wide enough to put laptop in with ease. There are also other zippered pockets where I can store paperwork, cables/cords and other supplies. Wonderful purchase, and can't beat the price.
