Honestly, this backpack is a best friend to me. I ordered it to take on a month of European backpacking (not as my primary but as more of a day pack) and it was perfect. The laptop pocket was a good place to hide a passport. I love the way it looks and the bright color. The size is awesome, it fits so much. I like the handles on the top as well. I used it for a trip to Honduras a primary, and again, perfect fit. Now, use it for high school. I bring my 15" laptop to school every day, and it used to be a pain because of the size, etc. But the laptop pocket is perfect, it's well located and fits my laptop. Love this bag. Could not recommend more. The front pocket is roomy too. My only complaint is that there's no waterbottle pocket. I clipped mine onto the handles, but still.
