Well, I wrote a review already and it didn't go through, so here goes again, albeit in abbreviated version. This bag adjusts to many body types/sizes (10 yr old boy to 30s mom to 39 year old male 6'2").

The mesh padding breathes exceptionally well, it's durable, has lots of room, and plenty of pockets and lashing points. The presence of a bungy web and sternum/waist straps denotes its committed design.

Only gripe is that the combo. hydration/laptop sleeve doesn't have a point for securing a camelbak Omega style water reservior. A Platypus wide-type might work better. My Unbottle's casing helps keep it more secure, so it's a minor quibble. Well done overall, even if one were to pay close to retail.
