    This is a good book backpack for the traveler, not recommended for school or work, way to heavy and bulky.

    Airplane Carry-On Bag

    The bag is perfect for a carry-on bag as it can fit so much in all of the different compartments. The book bag is a little bulky for everyday use though so unfortunately it will probably sit in my closet most of the time.

    This is a great backpack for just about anything. It has an abundance of pockets, and surprisingly doesn't weight as much as I thought it would. It does look kinda bulky though.

    I travel by train to go to school and having a great backpack is needed. When I saw this backpack, and tried to wear it and walk around with it I knew it would work. Its a little bulky if filled but it will keep your stuff protected.

    Excellent laptop backpack with plenty of pockets

    My old jansport student pack gave up the ghost finally, so was looking around for a replacement with a laptop compartment. This fits the bill perfectly. There are many pockets, in fact many more than I know what to do with. This could be a bit bulky for daily trips to the office, but for short trips, a couple of nights at most, this can't be beat. I also like the fact that the laptop sleeve is not on the back face, but is on the front face of the back compartment. Has two nice sized water bottle holders on the side.

    Great bag for computer and so much more

    This bag is a wonderful computer bag. I was able to put so much more into though. It's very roomy. It seems very durable, and the zippers are easy to use. Too many times bags have tough to move zippers, but not this one! I love that it stands up on its own if you put it down. The only thing I didn't like about this bag is the straps felt uncomfortable to me. They were a little more bulky than I'm used to. But that was minimal compared to the rest of the benefits.

    Great, strong, if bulky, backpack.

    This backpack is near-perfect. I've tried out a number of cheaper ones but this has outlasted them all. First and most important, it stores and protects my laptop well. I take this backpack with me everyday, everywhere I go -- on my daily commute on buses and trains, as well as longer trips on planes where it counts as my carry-on. It has a lot of compartments to fit everything I need daily: laptop accessories such as a mouse, cables, external hard drive, iPod, chargers, AC power adapter; my school stuff: notebooks, pens, the occasional book; extra change of clothes, lunch box, mini-umbrella -- the point is that there are enough zippered compartments to be able to store all of the above and more, and still keep everything organized. The only downside is its width/bulk - it seems to keeps its width/bulk whether I pack in everything I mentioned above, or pack nothing at all. I wish this had an adjustable strap on its sides to reduce its width when it is called for. Other than that, this backpack is an excellent buy. I've very happy with it.

    Great design, terrible quality

    I'm very fond of this style, having enjoyed almost daily use of a similar bag (Targus TANC) for 5 years. Sadly, I hate the colors on the new Targus Drifter, so I gave this a shot. The pockets and design are great, although the side pockets have such a narrow opening, they're almost pointless. However, the materials used for this bag are terrible, and I'm definitely returning it. It basically feels like it's made from cardboard; I have cheap canvas backpacks that feel more sturdy than this. At the same time, it's bulky, even when compared to the similar Targus. The material picks up everything it touches, whether it's hair or lint from a sofa. Definitely not worth the money! If this is all you can spend on a bag, and/or are in love with the design, the Targus Drifter II is way better quality...if you don't mind the colors! Otherwise, the North Face Surge seems like the best bet for this particular style of bag.

    Greatest backpack ever

    I love this backpack. Its very comfortable, it has a ton of space and pockets for everything and its durable because its held up even though I'ven't had it for very long. I use it for school mostly. It holds my laptop, a change of clothes, 6 of my books, 5 folders with all my papers and my notebook, 2 bottles of water and all my laptop accessories with ease. I've also taken it camping. Its perfect for hiking in the woods because its comfortable even on those long hikes. I also use it on long mountain bike trips. Holds everything I need. It'll hold everything you need for whatever you need. It is a little bit bulky but that's because its made of some really strong materials that don't flex the best but you'll know it'll last because of that. It keeps your notebook dry and stuff on those rainy trips. I've gotten the zippers jammed on some paper and plastics bags but they still work perfectly. A lot of my friends have this bag. After seeing my boss have this one, I wanted to get it.
