This is the best back pack I have ever owned. Perfect amount of room and holds all of my stuff. I recently washed it beacause it was getting dirty but the straps didnt wash well. But overall it is a awesome backpack.

Awesome laptop bag!!
Over the years I have probably bought every type of laptop bag a girl would be willing to carry around. I've had roller bags, other backpacks (mostly manly looking things), shoulder bags of varying types and sizes. This is by far the best bag I have ever had for my laptop. I do not carry books, folders or binders. I am in IT so I do carry a lot of tech gear. I did buy the Trip Kit to go with this backpack. I didn't just want to toss all my cables, external hard drives, mouse, router, etc, etc in the large pocket of the bag. I wanted it contained. The sleeve for the laptop is a perfect fit for my laptop. The large middle pocket holds the Trip Kit (which is full), my router, my external hard drive case and drink bag (zip lock bag full of tea bags, crystal lite singles and splenda singles). The outer pocket is honestly under used. The only things I have in it are my blackberry, business cards and a couple of pins. Lastly, I'll say that I will be getting another Trip Kit to go with this backpack. I need it for my tech gear. There is plenty of room in the middle pocket to add a second Trip Kit to what is already there.

15" Macbook Pro DOES fit.
I bought what I believe is the older version of this backpack. There is a separate section for the laptop that zips up the side. My biggest concern and hesitation in buying this backpack was the reviews stating a 15" computer would not fit. I have a 15" Macbook Pro and it fits perfectly in the laptop compartment. I don't believe it would fit if I had a case or sleeve on the computer. There is no extra room when I put it in there but it does fit very nicely. I plan on using the backpack for travel (it has a very nice strap so you can slide it on your luggage) and day trips so I can't say how many folders or notebooks it could carry.

I just now ordered another one of these backpacks, and unfortunately it looks like they're discontinuing this model. I got this backpack senior year of high school and it has lasted me through my fourth semester of college. That's about three years which is amazing for having so many books and binders. It holds a lot and is super comfortable. Definitely a great buy if you're looking for style, comfort, and durability.

Great bag if you have a laptop smaller than 15"
I recently bought this backpack because I'm a college student. I just got a 15" laptop so i needed a bag that will hold my folders and my laptop. When i received the bag i noticed that the laptop will not fit into the slot, so i have to put it in the bigger compartment so now i can only fit 3 folders in it a laptop, charger, binder and a book... not recommended if you are taking a large course of classes. Overall its a beautiful bag next time make the laptop compartment larger!

Good size but not grand
I use the front zip pocket for a 330mL water bottle, some snacks e.g. a sandwich and a couple of cereal bars, and there is still some room for more.
The main zip pocket I use for a few A4 notebooks or folders, a VB small cosmetic and a wallet.
The back pocket, I can fit in a tablet, and a folded spare T-shirt or jumper.
The two front slip pockets I use them for a hand sanitizer and a pack of hand tissues.
I found it is not big enough to use as a baby bag or a school bag or a work bag, so for those purposes I have other bags, but it is good for a shopping day or a visit to a friend, etc.

Great Backpack for School!
I have this laptop backpack and mine is now 3-4 years old and still is in great shape. It may be a a bit pricy ,but you will not be disappointed. There is a full protection for your laptop and tons of room for all your school supplies. You won't regret this buy!

Product is OK
I have had this backpack for 2 years and it held up pretty well. Now after having an extremely large textbook this past semester I am going to have to replace it because the straps are ripping even after attempting to sew them back.
I am not sure if anyone else has had this problem, but I've noticed that I can't fit even a normal sized water bottle in the side pockets. So I am not sure if they are meant for water bottles or not, but I thought it was weird and annoying. Also, after getting a new laptop this backpack doesn't fit my new one which is 17 inches. So make sure you know your laptop size before getting!

LOVE this backpack
I absolutely love this backpack. I now have it in 3 prints and have had the first one for almost 3 years and it has held up great! I like this design much better than the new laptop bag design. It's nice to have the side compartment to pull your laptop out of and holds a lot of stuff!

laptop sleeve too small
I bought this for myself in Mocha Rouge and for my friend in Suzani. Neither of our 15" laptops fit into the padded sleeve. :( I will keep it and use it for my work computer (11" macbook air). I did get the newer version of the laptop backpack in Indigo Pop with the padded sleeve inside and my laptop fits in there. I prefer this model with the separate laptop pocket and then big general compartment to the newer one where the padded sleeve is in the general compartment....but it's not helpful if my laptop doesn't fit. (I have a 15" MacBook Pro..so it's not like I have a thick 15" laptop)
