A perfect carry all. Fits ballistic cased IPad or my small shell cased iMac. I would recommend additional padding simply because ...I'm a pack horse. The backpack SURVIVED a 6 class, 7am - 6 pm college semester and it comfortably carried 3 X-large academic books, pens, pencils, all day lunch & snacks, inner handbag/ tote, and 4 small overflow carryalls with gum, emergency coffee, antiseptic wipes, lip balm, cosmetics, tissues, 3 sets of large eyeglass cases, lotion tube, car keys, emptied 22oz bubba coffee thermal travel mug, phone with charger, meds,more tissues, a business card case, 1 small water bottle & almonds in a snack zip-lock .... Was tempted to throw it off a bridge a few times during the course of the semester, but was careful to avoid placing it on asphalt so not to scuff up the base too much. Ballistic materials held well. Fully loaded, the shoulder Straps are comfortable for a 15 minute cross campus jaunt. Compartments zipped securely closed and did not slip open. Inner pencil pocket sags abit now but I think I can go another semester or even two with it. A well balanced product based on its capacity, endurance/ quality & price. Oh. I got straight "A"s. Why am I telling you this? I'm telling everybody. It was like a mini hotel room. The mini-bar was always open and I could even put my feet up( using it as a footstool).
