Why, having lived nearly 50 years with inferior backpacks, have I denied myself the pleasure of owning a truly great one? For just a little extra cheddar, I now own the single best, most useful, most comfortable, highest-quality backpack I have ever shrugged onto my back. It fits my 15" laptop beautifully (plus all cables and goodies in the top pocket) plus an overnight worth of clothes and my dop kit, sits snug on my back. I have gotten multiple unsolicited compliments on the minimalist style while wearing both weekend clothes and business suits. My only regret is not buying this sooner.
