Super Clean Design

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Like the review from Lawrence below, I would also have liked to see a little more space allotted for laptops. With that said, I love how clean this pack is, it is very sleek, not bulky at all, and if you pack carefully, you can fit quite a bit into it. I love this thing as my "personal item" when flying. Seems to fit under airline seats without issue.

Awesome backpack!

Like the clean design of it and how light it could be when traveling. The laptop compartment could be a little bit small to fit in a 15.4" laptop (normal laptop size instead of apple/ultrabook). However, I can live with that as the comfort and the design outweigh it! Awesome delivery as it arrived earlier than the expected date! Kudos to backcountry!!
