How it Rates:
- Usefulness: 10/10. This is the only personal item I travel with now. It's great for storing a laptop and all your essentials during a short or long flight, and it doubles as a great daypack for walking around a destination.
- Value: 9/10. It's a little bit on the expensive side, but it will be the only bag you will want to travel with from now on, especially if you travel with a laptop.
- Cool Factor: 10/10. It's sleek and minimal design goes with everything and looks great with any outfit. I've gotten so many compliments on mine already.
Final Verdict: I highly recommend this backpack if you travel often and have a laptop with you. It fits a ton in the main compartment and fits nicely under the seat in front of you. For non-travel days, it's great to use as a daypack and I even took it recently on a weekend trip as my only bag, and had no problem fitting everything. Even if you just commute to work back and forth with a laptop, I would highly recommend it.
