This backpack is very well made. The fabric and details are excellent. The backpack get enough padding in each compartment so it is able to maintain the shape even when you carry a lot of stuffs. This is what I like most (A lot of backpack will be streched out if you carry heavy stuffs). This backpack has a slim shape. It is tall but not very wide and thick. The space is enough for hanging around campus for a whole day. I usually carry my laptop, power cords, mouse, a folder, books, and other stuffs. I especially like the brief and professional looking design. The pure black color with nixon logo looks great. One thing to note is that the nixon logo in front of the backpack is actually white, not black as shown in the picture. On the left shoulder strap, there is also a nixon logo. There are three removable small pockets coming with the backpack. You can attach all of them in the front compartment or attach them to the front or side of the backpack. You can also attach the smallest zip pocket on the should strap. The backpack also comes with another zip pocket hidden in a small compartment designed specifically for it. It would be great to put tickets or money in it. The padding on the back is great. It has a lot of padding, which make it very comfortable. The fabric is also soft and feels great. The design inside is good. A lot of organizer make it easy to use. The front small pocket and side accessed small pocket are lined with very soft material so they are great to store cell phones or MP3 players. Overall, I think it is a great backpack. What I like most is that the backpack has really good fabric and great details. It is very well made.
