Great backpack, but not for owners of 15" Macbook Pros
on August 31, 2011
Other reviews have more than adequately summed up the general details of this backpack. It's well constructed and has great features, but it is not the right choice for owners of 15" Macbook Pros. The notebook pocket is way too big to comfortably secure a 15" Macbook. Further complicating the issue is the poorly designed, non-adjustable strap that can't be snugged across the laptop as you would with most briefcase style notebook bags. The Macbook floats around precariously giving me no confidence that it won't be slammed from side to side as the backpack moves and shifts. The amount of space left by the strap is so large, that I was able to fit two Macbooks and an iPad 1 wrapped in a bulky case before the strap finally felt like it was comfortably snugged down. (Look at the consumer pic I uploaded to see what I mean.)
The rest of the features of this backpack are great, but this gigantic design flaw means that this one is getting returned as it won't adequately perform the main task I purchased it for.
