The product is a lot smaller than expected, but everything fit! In fact it's compact style was not a hinderance to include all my stuff, and I have a lot of stuff. I am missing a place to connect keys, or a thumb drive on the backpack. I had my wife sew a clip on the side of the bag for this purpose. I also had to add a box at the bottom of the big compartment because all my books fell to the bottom. The computer compartment is easily accessible when the bag is on its side. I find myself turning it on its side to access much of my 'stuff'. In some ways this makes it easier and in some ways more difficult. Every backpack I've owned takes time to get used to. This one is no different. It is the best backpack I have owned. There is not a one perfect for all my needs. But this one is close. I would highly recommend it.
