- Q & A
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
I'm super picky about my laptop bags, and I thought I found the perfect bag when I bought this on Backcountry.com.
Pros: The materials and construction are all great. You can tell this is a well thought-out, engineered bag. Looks great, too. I'm fairly minimalist - I don't want a large bag, just enough to carry what I need. This fit my bag sizing requirements nicely. Not too big or too small...just right.
Cons: I ended up returning it since it didn't have enough storage pockets for my needs: the 3 pockets on the front just aren't big enough for my gear. They're too small for my laptop power adapter, and not enough space for misc cables, chargers, snacks, and misc. supplies. It also would have been nice if it had a slot for my iPad in addition to the laptop. It was also too tight for both laptop and iPad in the laptop slot, and I didn't want my iPad bouncing around inside the main compartment
If it had larger zippered pouch (or more) for laptop chargers and larger cables in side the front panel of the main compartment, along with a tablet slot, it would be perfect.
