This is a very compact, practical backpack for carrying a laptop without looking like you are carrying a laptop. For the most part I really like it. For anyone looking for high tech shoulder straps, this is not the pack. I would have liked a waist belt but there is none.
The sleeve to hold the laptop is a little unusual in two ways: 1) it is not right against your back like most other similar packs - there is additional storage between the laptop sleeve and the rear of the pack, and 2) the sleeve is made of the same material as diver's wet suits - holds the laptop snug and seems to provide some protection.
Besides the storage section with the laptop, there is another full size area, a large storage area in the front for incidentals, and one fleece lined padded area for sun glasses or other small electronics.
