There are plenty of pockets, including an inner padded sleeve for a laptop computer. I tried it with a sixteen inch computer with an extended battery pack, and it wouldn't fit. Most typical laptops shouldn't be a problem, though. There's an ample sized middle pocket in addition to the ones pictured, and a side pocket that could accommodate a large water bottle.
Less obvious is the pouch on the back that lets you tuck the straps into it, so they don't drag on the floor. It keeps the elegant appearance when the wheels are in use.
Overall, it does everything I need. If you have a larger laptop, it's more likely to fit if its outside isn't too much larger than the screen dimensions.
The tag on the bag lists a limited lifetime warranty with a footnote that it's good for only five years for roller packs, so read it carefully.
UPDATE: After 15 months, the handle and arm came off during normal use. The company changed its warranty procedure. Instead of sending the product to them, I had to reply to an email by attaching a photo of the damage and of the UPC tag, and answering one simple question: what happened? The rep said all I needed to say was that "it just came off." They wanted a copy of the receipt, which is easy to get from Amazon's purchase history. And they wanted to know my address. I can't see how it would be possible to process a warranty claim with any less information, so I'd say the experience was "as easy as possible.Read more ›
At first I was a bit concerned because one of the zipper pulls was broken. Amazon quickly sent me a replacement backpack though, and I attribute the flaw to random bad luck, because all of the other zipper pulls seem quite resilient.
This backpack rolls smoothly through the airport. The wheels are well balanced and smooth, and the backpack is sturdy enough to accommodate a heavy load while rolling (without scraping the ground). It has space for everything you need - including a nice space for a laptop which can be easily removed and replaced while going through security. It held up like a rock in the airport!
The second test of this backpack is how it performed as a daypack while touring around Central Asia. Bottom line - it was perfect. While it is slightly more awkward and a bit heavier than some daypacks due to the wheels and its sturdy construct with an extendable handle for rolling, it proved easy to lug around on my back with all the items I would need throughout a day of touring on foot. It breathed nicely between my back and the pack itself. It was easy to put on and take off. And the great thing is that if I ever wanted to stop carrying the load on my back, I could hold it by the handle, or simply roll it along.
I love this bag!
Just want to say I'm nearing the end of my 2 years of constant semesters. This thing is still going strong. I still wish the inside pockets were roomier, but the wheels have stayed strong, not loose (they do have some wear that is, fraying along the edges). The handle screws were tightened by my husband at least once during this time. The straps are still firmly sewed on, and the color has stayed bright all over, no fading or patching showing.
This bag may well be handed down to my nephew or niece for their college time. Still a fair value for the price. Good luck to you all.
End of edit/addition
I purchased this bookbag for myself when I went back to college this summer. I'm now using it for my fall semester, and it shows virtually no wear even though I roll it over cement, asphalt, bumps, stairs etc. I've had several days of rain and the contents inside stayed dry & secure. Important not only for my papers but for my electronic items inside.
I had read several reviews both praising and deriding this model's wheels as well as the room it provided. After having it for myself, I can understand why some have issues with them both.
To clarify, it is roomy, multiple pockets, varying sizes, and even a convenient water bottle (or in my case, travel coffee mug) holder. However the main area to hold my college books often feels smushed when I have my large, heavy books in there for classes that day.Read more ›
