Big plus and the main reason why got it is a firm back panel which means protection for your laptop. If you don't have a chance to try in hand then know that with any reasonable pressure sideways the back panel will not fold. While it will bend vertically to an extend which is what I'd call perfect amount of stiffness. The cheaper packs from tnf don't have that.
Another big advantage is versatility, got back ventilation, hip and chest strap, and solid built... Will be ok even on day hikes when you need sth for hours on your back. If you want one pack for everything this is a good option.
Downside is it's a bit heavy.. if i didn't need that laptop protection, sometimes if like to grab something lighter. .. also might be big on a girl.
I hope that helps.
UDATE: I sold it. It doesn't feel nice and not comfortable to use and carry. Main problem was how what was inside felt compressed, I felt like it's the content that holds the shape of it not the bag itself. That's a problem because what's inside then pushes against the laptop which is then not protected structurally. It's safe from side knocks because of the back panel not not against content from within the bag. I couldn't get used to the big straps either. And the bag feels smaller than advertised size. But my main problem was faulty design. Bag panel is kind of tough but material that is used to stiffen it is thin and forms thin sharp edge on the bottom that has got the fabric wrapped around it tightly. that is also the spot that touches the ground every time you put the bag down. What it means is that these spots on the bottom edge get worn out too quickly and create holes. Just from simply putting the bag down. Mine started developing tears after 2 months of light use and was matter of weeks before fabric would rip completely and back stiffener come out. That's having rest of the bag intact. Without any signs of wear. That's a big construction flaw in my eyes and bad design. Overall I got impression that is designed to look cool and attractive but without thought and engineering substance. Quite the opposite what I expected and what I get when I use Fjalraven bag. So often I pick it up and wonder how well thought out and engineered it is. And how practical and good it feels to use.
I've had better products since those from Millican (best for carry comfort-hikes, and laptop protection) and Fjalraven (raven28, for organisation, laptop and around town) ,Ogio(alpha 320, very practical and convenient).
Ever so slightly smaller than expected and rounded bottom is actually quite annoying. Overall a very robust and good looking bag. I would buy it again.
Very robust materials.
That would be a shame as they are excellent in design and delivery.
The functionality is well thought out, the quality is upper tier as you'd expect from NF and for the price.
It does all I wanted and does it very well. You get what you pay for.
Perfect for a 2 or 3-night stay, I carry 2 laptops, which have easy access to them when travelling without showing fellow travellers your underpants... Great main space for bathroom stuff, clothes and trainers, great external pockets for umbrella, cold drink and the extra pouch for your reusable hot drink cup...
They've thought of everything I need and I'm delighted with it.
Size wise it has been ideal for my travels over the last few months and I've found the organisation of the bag is nearly ideal. the straps on the front of the bag have been good for sliding my flipflops and wet towel into.
I would say the bag is heavier than it needs to be given it isnt even waterproof, and the shoulder straps are a little too stiff for my liking.
Design wise, the rounded bottom and the restrictive opening to half way down the bag make it a little awkward when packing/unpacking, but once packed it does feel very secure. I'd like to have seen zips with a covering flap to protect from water/attention.
Sadly I will be looking to change bag soon as I think there are better solutions for onebaggers like me that travel a lot.
Rear mesh pocket is useful, side pockets are useful. FIts loads of stuff, and the updates to the pockets re really useful too.
Laptop compartment easily fits an XPS15. Can take it anywhere, and easily enough space to fit a good week's worth of shopping if you cycle to Waitrose.
Built quality is fantastic. Size is great for a hulking wide 6ft human. Really comfortable. Price is fantastic for 60GBP.
