I use it to attend engineering school, so I have to carry a whole lot of stuff with me sometimes. Right now, this backpack is carrying 4 composition books, about 2 stacks of lined filler paper, folders full of papers, 2 manuals, pencils and pens, a 15" laptop and its charger, a scientific calculator and a graphing calculator, a water bottle, full-size headphones, earbuds, a smartphone, and a small apple. As you can see, it has a lot of space for one's stuff. It carries all of this without a hitch.
The zippers for the front pockets are strangely U-shaped, so putting stuff into them is a bit awkward. The top-front pocket has space for maybe your keys and chapstick and the bottom-front pocket has space for a graphing calculator. Even with all the stuff inside the bag, I keep a laptop charger and a water bottle in the side pockets all the time, at the same time. The top pocket is tricot lined, so it should keep glasses from scratching. That pocket it the most used and keeps additional miscellaneous small items in there as well. It would be ideal if there were more pockets inside the bag. I feel a little paranoid that someone could sneakily come up behind me and take something from the outside pockets without my knowing, so I keep expensive stuff in the main compartment.
The main compartment has a laptop sleeve that is about 1" off the ground and is placed close to your back. There are various pockets right in front of the sleeve, but they are useless to me when I have a laptop in the sleeve (one wrong move and stuff inside the pockets would probably crush my laptop's screen). I therefore keep hard goods in the tablet pocket--the pocket shows no signs of wear with this use.
The exterior of the bag is overall still in great condition. A semester in the big city has slowly given it character in the form of scratches to the material on the front and the bottom. I can see some frayed ballistic nylon and I predict that holes will eventually form in these places (although they haven't formed yet). The compression straps are prrtty much useless and should have been omitted in design R&D. I feel like my shoulders roll forward with the chest strap in use, so I refrain from using it to have better posture. The S-curve straps seem to be filled with dense foam that has softened up somewhat with daily use. As such, the straps sometimes feel a bit flimsy when grabbing the bag by the straps. The foam used here seems to be less dense and thinner than the foam used in the iconic Jansport Superbreak. The S-curve straps are usually comfy under the usual load given that I wear a sweater. Without a sweater, the bag is more comfortable with less stuff in it.
The bag features some loops on the front pocket and on the top and bottom. I sometimes use a pocket loop to carry my keys. I've never used the bottom loop and don't really know why it's there. The loop looks too down low to be comfortable and have your stuff not swing from it (and this pack would not be the ideal choice to hang your ice pick from during tour mountaineering trip). The top loop is stury and has held all of the usual weight (I've read that the Jansport Hatchet is notorious for its loop to be ripped out).
Overall, I'd recommend this bag to someone looking for a stylish, functional bag. I wish that the straps were more like that of cheaper Jansport models or like those that the North Face uses.
Things I like:
A lot of pockets, two water bottle pockets on the outside, 2 small zipper pockets with flaps in front, 1 zipper pocket right by one water bottle packet, 1 insulated pocket, and 1 up top.
What I like the most is when you fill up the back with stuff, it never looks bulky(this separates it from all other backpacks). It is more vertical than horizontal but at the same time it is does not look big.
I removed all the zipper strings because it made the backpack look cheap. Other than that can't think of any.
Looking forward to using this backpack for work and travel. Yes, the 90 dollars seems worth it. I was looking at other stylish backpacks and actually got them: Herschel little america and jack wolfskin. But none had as much pockets and functionality as this one, and those look cheaply made compared to Jansport. To top that, Jansport has lifetime warranty!
This pack is no exception. It has all the necessary whistles and bells for a daily commuter. I have had it for about two months now. And through all of the daily commutes to and from work, the gym and 4 cross-country business trips, it has been nothing but exceptional. Definitely a high quality pack; can carry my laptop with plenty of cushioning and protection with separate pockets of all the plugs, connectors, phone, and anything else you need handy.
