I have been searching for THE backpack for my commute to work. Required: Separate laptop compartment, not too big/bulky, thoughtful organization, looks great on, waterproof, no hanging straps.
I have purchased and returned numerous other brands over several months, but now my search is finally over. This backpack crushes it. From the moment I took it out of the packaging I knew this was the one. You can tell that this bag is truly quality and well made. All of the leather detailing really makes it special. Looks great on and doesn't overwhelm my petite 5'3" frame. It's light and it carries everything I need. And no hanging straps!!
If you're looking for your new every day, carry-it-all backpack, this is it!
