Now -- what I like/love:: The outside pockets on the front are terrific. THe larger one is the perfect size & depth for my plane ticket wallet, so I can get to my boarding passes, itineraries, etc. quickly & easily. And the smaller pocket on top is PERFECT PERFECT PERFECT for my SmartPhone!!! It is shallow enough that I don't have to dig deep for it, but deep enough not to fall out. Did I say it was perfect? The inside pockets, key fob, etc. are terrific, too. Room for everything organized. The handles are the right length to carry over the shoulder snugly, and don't cut in, or can be carried by hand and not hit the ground. Also love the water bottle holder. Overall, bag is not too big, not too small. High quality; well-made.
The ALMOST perfect part:: Two simple edits would make this bag a total dream come true:: 1) a large pocket on the back for a magazine or immediate file you're working on. and 2) a little handle along the bottom front edge so that you can hold onto & take some of the weight off the shoulder. I usually end up with my hand supporting the bottom to do that, but it slips & is awkward. This is a wonderful feature I have seen on expensive bags, but it is rarely used unfortunately. And it's so simple!
Thanks Jansport. You've almost got it! I highly recommend this bag.
First the good parts, the front of the bag has 2 pockets, one is a zip pocket (I use if for small things like keys). Above that is another pocket that doesn't zip shut, but is just deep enough to hold something small without the item falling out. The side has a pocket that I've used for alternating sizes of water and soda bottles. Inside there is another small, mesh covered pocket that is the perfect size for floppies - I use it for one of my flash drives and a little Burts Bees lip gloss - because of the mesh I can see what's in there without hunting around in a deep pocket. On either side of the mesh zip pocket there are pen sleeves and a larger sleeve for the cell phone. There is also a key hook, but ultimately, my keys weighed too much and dragged down the top of the bag too much - it didn't break, but didn't work well for me, though it might work well for someone else.
Now for the bad parts, there are very few. First, this is touted as being a great laptop bag. I thought that would be great because I have had to bring my laptop to many of my graduate school classes. Problem, the pocket that is made for your laptop has only an extremely thin padding on the outside and the inside is not lined with anything - there is literally no protection at all for the laptop. So I appropriated a neoprene laptop sleeve from one of my other bags and put my 14 x 10 x 1 laptop in the bag. That's when the other issue cropped up. The bag is tall rather than wide so the laptop needs to go on its end in the laptop pocket. Once the laptop (and mine is not large) was placed in the bag, it dominated the bag allowing little room for the remainder of my belongings - with school that includes personal items (like my wallet) and notebooks as well a book needed for the particular class. I found that due to the laptop pocket issues I often found that I was carrying my laptop separately in the neoprene sleeve. This is not ideal. If the pocket was padded, at least on the outside, it would have eliminated the neoprene sleeve and may have helped with the stability of the bag on the whole.
So, the final analysis: I really like this bag, and will play with it some more in an effort to make it work better for me ... maybe by pairing down what I carry with me and maybe trying to trust the ultra thin lining on the outside of the bag to protect my laptop for short-term periods (class). Over the long haul, it is a great bag if you don't have a laptop to worry about or if you have a really, really small laptop (like a netbook).
