A bit pricey but the lifetime Briggs & Riley made it an easy decision. I have a lot of their luggage and travel globally. If it fails I've always been able to get fast service in many countries. "You pay for it when you buy it or when you fix it."
Briggs & Riley generally has a very good reputation online for their backpacks, which made me excited to get this one. Unfortunately when I opened the plastic bag I was supremely disappointed. Honestly, this is backpack is just one step in quality and engineering away from those found at department stores. Any backpack from The North Face (which has become a fashion backpack brand and no longer a technical brand since the early 2000s) is heads and tails superior to this Briggs & Riley bag. If I had to choose comparable brands, I would say this is along side school backpacks made by Nike and Adidas. It is essentially a "fashion backpack".
This Briggs & Riley backpack uses material that is run-of-the-mill and not Cordura, Nylon ripstop or any other lightweight durable fabric. The zippers are big and beefy, but don't feel like they can take abuse. The main pocket opening is small and makes accessing items at the bottom very difficult. The front pocket is about 1/3 the size of the front of the backpack and does not have enough room or padding for a tablet. Both size pockets do not fit anything larger than the smallest 12oz drinking water bottles and because there is no cinching material, the bottles will easily fall out. If I paid $145 for this, I would be very upset. The only thing going for this backpack in my opinion is the large interior volume and the padded laptop sleeve - which can be found in backpacks costing much less.
Here's my advice. If you want a high quality backpack, research the following brands and pick what you like. Any bag you pick from these will be more comfortable, of higher quality and better designed. Most of these brands have excellent warranties, sometimes lifetime. Osprey and Black Diamond are the most durable and technically intelligent. Marmot, Gregory, REI, Eastern Mountain Sports (EMS), Mountainsmith and Eagle Creek are excellent brands and nearly as good as Osprey and Black Diamond. CaseLogic is a very good computer backpack brand. The North Face is no longer a technical brand but their backpacks are still better built than most. In these brands you can find a better pack at 1/2 the price of this Briggs & Riley.
