My boyfriend bought this pack for his laptop and accessories, but it was smaller than he anticipated. I inherited it and love it. It's perfect for flights. The laptop pad is the perfect spot for laptop and a few magazines. The side pockets are convenient as well. I you are not a photographer, the camera pocket is a safe place for your glasses or goggles. I kept my Rx glasses in there without fear. I would recommend this bag for day trips were you still need to plug in.
