I was initially drawn to this backpack because of its leather trim and minimalist design. After a few months of use as a commuter, I'm very happy that it still looks new. It's also very weather proof. I love the organizer in the main compartment and the outer pocket. I carry my Macbook pro 15 inch (USB-C) laptop in the sleeve within the main compartment and it provides ample protection. There's also a lot of room for a couple of books, clothing, and a water bottle. The straps are quilted and I can carry the bag comfortably. However, because of the bag's material, I don't think if it would be ideal for use during warm weather.
