Amazing backpack!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

My backpack finally arrived a couple of weeks ago, and I've got nothing to say but positive feedback.

Although this certainly might be a huge backpack for some people, it suits my needs pretty well, and I'm sure it will suit yours as well. I'm a CS student and have been struggling with a cross bag over the last three years, and more recently it started to cause back aches. So I decided it was about time to drop it.

It fits any 11-17 inches laptop in its side pocket, which also has a small convenient pocket inside for your tablet if you happen to have one, and the back panel is thoroughly ergonomic and feels very comfortable if you walk and carry heavy stuff with you (like I do). At first I was skeptical about the removable pouches, and, surprise: they turned out to be useful! The soft material inside provides a sort of protection for digital devices whose touch screens can be easily scratched or shattered. The main first compartment opens up nice and wide with plenty of space for your chargers, your cords, or any other gadgets you may own; even your notebooks if you will.

The security pocket in the back panel also is very convenient. Overall I'm satisfied with my purchase and the support I received from Brooklynn Hall when I was submitting my order. She's kind, nice and I definitely recommend talking to her on the chat. Thanks Brooklynn and kudos to you for providing me with a pleasant purchasing experience! (if only I could make a mention). Here's her profile anyways: http://www.backcountry.com/Store/community/userProfile.jsp?profileId=1300199870

Keep up the good work, people from Backcountry!
