I like the bag overall, but wish the straps on top could be buttoned off, or tucked away when the backpack is in use. What I have to do is fold them in the front of the bag and use that little strap to hold them which isn't ideal.
The inside of the bag is great - tons of space and my 15 inch laptop fits well. The material and backpack straps are really comfortable so I can wear it all day without pain. I'm only 5 foot tall so the bag looks a little big on me though. Maybe a smaller size would be better.
I would recommend this product.

Very nice size to accomodate plenty of books/documents and a lap top. Very handy for riding a bike, and then using the bag as a tote.

I purchased this bag for business travel which involves carrying my laptop, notebooks and a camera around cities throughout the world. There are nice pockets in the front to store pens and smaller items (business cards, flash drives). There is one interior pocket that holds a small laptop (plenty of room for my 13" macbook air) and another zippered interior pocket for sunglasses (fleece lined). I do wish that the laptop divider had more body to protect it from the rest of the interior contents.
I am very impressed with the support that this bag offers as a backpack - very comfortable! I love the fact that the backpack straps tuck away.
My big criticism of the bag is that the top handles do not tuck away (they can't zip inside) and are stiff enough that they stand up on their own. If you're wearing this as a backpack, you'll have the handles sticking up and caressing the back of your head. The other option is to tuck the handles down and secure them in front with the webbing strap, which looks a bit odd. But overall, this is a great bag that's very well made.
I would recommend this product.

This bag is just what I needed for travel and everyday use. It's very roomy, but doesn't feel bulky when filled with stuff. I love the interior pocket for my iPad (it would fit a smaller laptop too) and the backpack straps are handy. I really appreciate that these straps tuck away when I don't need them. Also, the handles are a perfect length, you can easily swing the bag over your shoulder when you're on the go. Love it!
I would recommend this product.

I wanted a backpack that doesn't necessarily look like a backpack and this is it. I can use this as a large bag and hold the top handles when it's not too full. If you keep the backpack side in, it doesn't look like a backpack. I have business clients that I go to and need to bring lots of stuff so it works for that too. I go to a six hour yoga class twice an month and it's great for all that stuff too.
I'm very happy I bought this backpack/bag and I would buy it again.
I would recommend this product.
