I have searched many other brands and models and this was the best overall backpack for me in terms of functionality, capacity, and style.

The large compartment stores all my business work accessories such as my power supply, notebook, phone accessories, large headset, and it can even hold a small change of clothes, travel pillow, and baseball cap!

The organizer is okay. It can hold a tablet, eyeglass case, pens, memory sticks, etc. It's just that the zippered pockets inside can't really hold much and can be hard to reach/open if the bag is full. Still decent.

The small soft fleece-lined pocket at the top is a nice touch. It's a good place to put your cell phone, eye drops, metro subway card, earphones, etc.

There's a quick access pocket on the back that is partially closed by velcro. I like this pocket for grabbing things like tissue, gum, snacks, or a small tube of hand lotion. The things mentioned tend to stick out a bit when I store them there. I know it's not meant to be a closed pocket and it works well. But I do wish it was a little bit deeper. That way, things would sit more comfortably in there.

The two cup holders are fantastic. They can fit large tumblers. I use to hold all sorts of misc items such as a leak-proof thermos, gloves, or a compact umbrella.

As others have stated, the top handle is great. It's nicely reinforced. It's what I always reach for first when picking my bag off the floor.

The zippers themselves are very high quality. They are thick, the straps are large, easy to grip, and the zip action is smooth.

I do really like that the bag itself is rather large but light-weight at the same time. This is key for a frequent business traveler whose body gets mangled by carrying laptops and sits in economy class flights all the time.

My only big complaint is that I wish the bottom was more reinforced. If your bag is sitting on a hard floor and if you don't put your laptop in carefully, it will bang the floor.

                It's heavy and thick, so it feels like you can't put too much stuff like max. for two days clothing. But it's good quality and can fit 17" laptop. It's also bulky.

                  Cartridge Comparison Guide
                  • Cartridge Types
                  • Ink & Toner Basics
                  • Number of Pages & Shelf Life
                  Cartridge Type
                  Genuine or OEM (Original) Cartridges Remanufactured Cartridges Compatible Cartridges
                  Description OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer, meaning the cartridge was made by the same company that made your printer. Original brand cartridges are very reliable and sometimes the only option if your printer is new to market or uncommon. Remanufactured ink is a genuine brand cartridge that has gone through one cycle of use. After use, the cartridge is recycled, acquired by a remanufacturing facility and put through a rigorous professional refurbishing process. During the refurbishing process the cartridge is disassembled, thoroughly cleaned and tested for quality. It's then carefully refilled, tested again and brought back to life. Buying remanufactured prevents one less cartridge from ending up in a landfill. A compatible cartridge is a brand new ink cartridge built by a manufacturer other than your printer. It's like buying the generic version of the genuine brand. Most are uniquely designed to differentiate from genuine cartridges. Despite any structural difference you may notice, the cartridge will still fit in your machine and print a full yield, just like the original brand.
                  Price Factors Many printer manufacturers follow the razor-and-blades business model which may result in higher priced genuine cartridges. Remanufactured ink is much cheaper than the original brand ink. It's far more cost effective to refurbish a previously used cartridge than create a new OEM from scratch. Compatible ink is much cheaper than the original brand. Compatible suppliers don't have to worry about the additional costs that hinder OEMs like new printers or firmware, which lets them keep prices low.
                  Quality Original cartridges work extremely well and are covered under a warranty by the printer manufacturer High quality remanufactured ink will match the quality of the original, but not all remanufactured ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results. High quality compatible ink will match the quality of the original, but not all compatible ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results.
                  What's the difference between ink and toner cartridges?
                  Ink Cartridges Toner Cartridges
                  Printer Type Work with inkjet printers Work with laser printers
                  Material Liquid ink Dry powder
                  How it works Inkjet printers use a series of nozzles that spray tiny drops of ink directly on the print suface Laser toner printers use static electricity and heat to bond dry toner powder to a page
                  Commonly used by Casual home users, small business and photographers Large businesses and schools
                  Number of Pages You Can Print A cartridge's page yield is the estimated number of pages you can print. Page yield is based on 5% page coverage. This means that the quoted page yield is based upon printed pages where only 5% of the page has been imprinted with ink. For example, a short memo has approximately 5% coverage. If you have a cartridge that has a yield of 500 pages, it can print 500 pages of that short memo. If you are printing letters, photos or graphics, your coverage will vary greatly and your page yield will drop significantly.
                  Cartridge Warranty and Shelf Life Most ink and toner cartridges include a warranty or "best by" date on their box. Remanufactured and compatible ink cartridges can last 12-18 months unopened, and toner cartridges can last up to 3 years.
                  Cartridge Care and Storage Only open a cartridge when you need it. Opened cartridges will eventually dry out, especially if the protective tape or clip has been removed. If you have an open ink cartridge around and would like to try and prevent it from drying out, place it nozzle side up in a plastic airtight tub. If your cartridge came with protective tape or a clip reapply both before storing. Place a damp cloth or paper towel in the tub, next to the cartridge and keep it stored in a cool, dark place.
