Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect traveling companion I bought this backpack a few months ago as sometimes my commute involves a 20 minute walk. As much as I love my well travelled Boston Heist carry bag when carrying all the gear aching elbow joints were becoming a problem not to mention juggling bag, phone and umbrella (life in Auckland!) was tricky. I decided to join the working backpack community and this stylish and practical unit has proved to be fantastic. Regular trips across the Tasman joins nicely to me Vis-a-vis wheely carry on with the Crumpler handle sleeve. Someone pointed out the option to tuck the straps into the vertical pocket in the back and turn it into a big briefcase! Genius. Great capacity and features, durability looks good like all of my Crumpler products. I purchased the black for professional reasons, secretly desired the green.... Perfect? Pretty close, a couple of suggestions... - A mesh pocket inside the zipper pocket in the ‘lid’ of the bag for small things. - a nifty key lanyard in the main compartment too, not only the front pocket. - the sneaky side zipper pockets (you show an iPhone in the images) are terrific however you cannot use these if you use the slide over wheely bag handle which I use a lot. Just improvements not faults or deficiencies, definitely 5/5 stars.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid bag Mostly pretty good! The construction of Crumpler's bags are of a very high quality, strap adjustments galore on the Vis a vis which means you can expand / contract capacity as needs be. There are a lot of compartments particularly along the backrest for things like documents / cards, the intended "tech" compartment is not obvious in this bag, but there are several locations for this so you be judge. The main bag material is very thick, haven't tested it's water resistance yet but if it performs like my Complete Seed then this bag will meet my requirements. To turn this into a briefcase bag is a bit clunky - the backrest and straps are detachable and you can hide them in a slip through compartment, but the excess adjustable straps are the parts not easily hidden if this was your concern. I originally purchased this for my 17" laptop, and it "just" fits in the sleeve! It's a real tight squeeze for my lappy. But having said that, it now doubles as my second "work" bag for the days I need my laptop with me, with the expandable compartments, which is the bag's strongest asset. I think this should be considered a "bag with space for a laptop" rather than a dedicated laptop bag. 17" laptop bags / sleeves are less common on the market, maybe consider this bag a multi-use rather than simply to store your lappy away when not in use as it is quite large. Overall very satisfied with the bag.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Heavy backpack Liked the look of this pack online but its heavy empty then you put a laptop, book, and a few other bits and its ridiculous heavy to use as a day pack for work. Would probably be better as an overnight bag but again too heavy to be a carry on bag with a 7kg limit on airplanes.
