Elementary meets tech college.
The Calistoga Backpack is a throwback to old school pack, except Marmot updated it for the modern era. A padded sleeve protects your laptop while the zippered organizer separates your smartphone from your retro-styled binder. There's an additional front pocket to stash rain shells, and two pockets store water bottles and garbage you find on the sidewalk.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I use this bag for classes and it's a perfect fit. The padded shoulder straps are sturdy and comfortable. With all the weight between books and binders inside their design is awesome as they never pinch or make my shoulders hurt. The design is nice and the front pocket is super big. I'm able to put scientific calculator, snacks, all pens, and a big stack of flash cards that fit with room to spare. The padded laptop holder is nice. I've had other brands before where the padding was thin, but This one has a solid amount to where I feel my laptop would be protected! The quality is very nice. Overall great bag. I might have gone one size up to be able to fit more in the primary opening. But just enough for a day tracking from class to class on campus.
a better break down for the size.
