Pros: Roomy, Lightweight, Comfortable

Cons: Not Enough Pockets

Best Uses: Travel

Describe Yourself: Practical, Career

Primary use: Business

I have used this pack on both business and personal trips. It comfortably fits my 17 inch MacBook Pro and 4-5 days worth of clothing, yet fits the airline definition of a carryon and is easy to carry.

If you need lots of pockets for your various electronics, however, this may not be a bag for you as it is woefully short in that department. It works for me, however, as it forces me to economize and take only what I need.
