I love the wide-mouth main zipper compartment; it ingeniously opens and gives access to all your gear. Multiple compartments inside keep everything organized and secure. Side zips are perfect for cables and accessories. Mesh pockets in the shoulder straps hold my smartphone (snugly), and similar pockets on the side of the bag are great for small items - though they're too small and tight for water bottles.
The minimalist design and interior color accents are the icing on the cake, and separate this from the pack of wannabe bag brands. The top handle is a nice touch for people like me who use this as their primary office bag. The laptop sleeve fits my MacBook perfectly, is well-padded and secure no matter how much junk I'm carrying.
On the downside, it is a commuter bag only. A chest strap would be nice for those days when you've got a full load. Zippers instead of velcro tabs would be better for the interior pockets, and sleeves for pens and pencils would be a good addition.
If you're a Booq fan and need something for weekend trips or overnighters (or a commuter/camera bag), check out the much larger Booq Boa Flow XL, Black-Red Backpack.
With that said, it is still a good bag (just not great). The quality is top notch and the material feels more like luggage than a backpack. The storage areas are very good and keep all of my stuff organized. It is comfortable and not too big. It is the perfect size for carrying several items plus a laptop or Ipad.
Build Quality = Excellent.
Water resistant = Excellent.
This is really awesome for commuting, it's slim profile allows you to sneak into tighter spots without having to take it off (but, you still should when you can anyway, as all good, civilized and considerate people should.)
Do not drop your bag vertically. Have a padding, a cushion or similar that is below your laptop. I dropped the bag accidentally once and it made a dent on it :/ so add extra padding if you are the kind of guy that may be prone to this.
One of the shoulder straps has a nice pocket, I think it was for a cellphone? (but its pretty tight) -- I keep business cards there instead.

Disappointed. After two years, the tabs on the zippers came off and now I can't zip the bag! disappointing for an expensive laptop backpack. Read morePublished 6 months ago by 090

Very high quality, well made and durable. A little small inside if you are looking for an overnight bag, but as described, it's a great 13" computer/commuter pack.Published on April 23, 2013 by David Molinaro

Nice design, not a lot a room for much else, but for a MacBook Pro it is perfect for my needs. I specially like that it does not look like a lap top bag,Published on January 11, 2013 by M. Mancilla
