    Recommended backpack

    The sunglass compartment makes the backpack kind of top heavy. Because of that, two things occur: backpack doesn't always standup straight when placed on the floor; and sometimes when emptying heavy items like laptop and books, the backpack will topple over due to the weight of the sunglass compartment. One way to relieve this weight is to remove the hard case that is in the top zippered pocket. Other than that, I love this backpack. It looks great. It's not too big. I think there are enough pockets. The side pockets look small but I can place my 8" tall (3" diameter) water cup. The metal clips are sweet and the front adjustable strap (rides 2 vertical rails) is a pleasant surprise. I have a 17" laptop (with an extended battery and num pad) and it fits very snuggly. I imagine with the standard battery it would be have more wiggle room. I recommend this backpack!

    Amazing bag, worth every penny

    I have had this backpack for a couple of week now, and I love it. It is really worth every penny. I am a huge fan of features actually leading to true benefit. One of the things that sold me on this bag was the hard pocket that you can put sunglasses, phone or MP3 player in and not worry about them getting smashed. My last backpack had a pocket I could put these things in, but I constantly was worried I would pull my sunglasses out busted. I don't have to worry about that with this bag. I also love the side straps that let you hook them on and pull the front of the bag back, helps keep things together and in place, plus it does not let books and laptop shift around. It has plenty of pockets for things, also is pretty water resistant, so I am not worried being caught in the rain and the contents on the bag getting wet. Overall this is the best bag to buy for sure.

    Excellent Backpack for College Freshmen

    Overall, this is the best backpack I have ever owned, and it works perfect for my needs. I was looking for a backpack so that my new 13" MacBook Pro with retina display could fit inside with the InCase Neoprene Sleeve on it as well. This backpack has the ability to hold a 17" regular macbook pro and has plenty of padding on either side to keep it safe. One thing that really stood out to me is that the backpack is actually water resistant. This was a big plus for me because i was thinking that as i walk to class, its not going to be sunny and clear every time. So i wanted a backpack that could withstand a little bit of weather and wouldn't have me worrying about all of my technology and books getting messed up. This Thule product is built to last and you can feel that the first time you pick it up. A definite thumbs up!

    Bought this backpack for my freshman year of college. I wanted something that could hold my laptop (13in Macbook Pro Retina), and a couple books for classes. It greatly achieves these things. One thing that I found that I don't like, is that the zippers are a little tough to zip and unzip. They are extremely durable zippers, which might be why they are a little tough. The best part about this backpack though, is that Thule stands by the product for 25 years (yes, you read that correctly) against any defects in the product. Great backpack, and I highly recommend it.

    I'm a happy camper - it fulfilled my wishlist

    I like the overall design. It shows somebody really thought about the features. I wish it had padding on the very narrow bottom part of the backpack, but other padding seems adequate. I love the deep hard plastic compartment for the mouse. I also like that it has a strap across the front to help keep the backpack from shifting. Also, this is used for a Dell laptop, not a Mac product. I can't think of anything bad about it, except that it cost quite a bit more than I wanted to spend. But in the end it met everything I required so I am a happy camper.

    Accesible compartments and great durability

    I am not really using this for a MacBook, that would be silly. I can easily fill it with my 17.3 inch asus laptop and everything else I need for school. It has very accesible compartments but i would have liked wider side pockets. I have a fame for destroying bacpacks this is one of my toughests enemies yet. Really cool design and it is just as good as new eventhough i've had it for a long time now.

    Pricey but everything I wanted and then some

    I didn't want to spend this much, but this was worth every penny. It had the extra length I needed, love the hard pouch for the mouse, many pockets, plenty of padding, easy to get stuff in and out. The straps for the backpack were quite adjustable for me (smaller) and my husband (a big guy). And it kept everything perfectly safe on a trip that left it to be banged around a bit.

    Overall a great product. It has enough pockets to store your gear but not too many so you don't remember where you put things. I like the eye glass holder personally also some people might not. It is durable and easy to carry all my work related items. The design is a little nicer than standard black for work. Very well made and I'm satisfied with my purchase.

    I am very happy with this product. my "15 laptop fits great in this bag along with a few notebooks and extra writing supplies easily. The adjustable straps on the sides are easy to remove and make it easy to get things in and out of the bag. Over a fantastic bag for anything from high school to business uses.

    I waited a while before purchasing but I'm glad I finally gave in. Plenty of room for everything. The pouch on the top can protect your phone, iPod, etc. No longer worried about them getting crushed by my books. The bag not only looks good, the 25 yr warranty is second to none.

    High-quality backpack. A bit small but enough for everyday use. A lot handy-dandy pockets. Very well engineered. Excellent materials and finish. Durability is TBD but it looks like it'll last a long time. Was on a steep sale, so value proposition was very high.

    Besides my laptop being wide I also have a USB sticking out the side and this is perfect for it. It also has a pocket, that is hard, to protect your mouse. I use this all the time And can’t recommend it enough.

    I usually use a smaller backpack for daily activities but when traveling I want something with a lot of compartments and space so that every thing can be sort but safe at the same. This bag has proven to be quiet satisfactory in this regard.

    This is a great back pack! It has a padded compartment for my Mac. And the material is super durable, also it has metal strap adjusters instead of plastic so they won't break. The bag is very light weight and I use it everyday.

    My favorite feature would have to be the glasses compartment, it is a harder material to keep what you put in it safe. This bag also gives you room to carry other things you might need besides your lap top.

    I've taken this island hopping, and on many travels. The pouch where you can put your sunglasses is very handy. Also resilient to water. Mine still looks new after using it over the years.
