I just went back to school as an adult, and I love this bag for all aspects of my life. It holds my school books when I need it to, or my everyday life as a mom, a professional, a day-tripper. It's wonderful, and very comfortable to wear. If you have a small laptop with a neoprene sleeve, it will hold that as well.
Saw it in a major retail store, liked it and found it for $20 less at Overstock. Very solid backpack, tough durable nylon. I like the fact that it doesn't "flop". the rigid compartments mean that the it stays snug and tight against your back while walking or biking, and that makes the load feel "lighter" somehow. The downside is that the compartments aren't as big as you might think. The removable laptop case is a nice touch I find. I put my macbook inside a neoprene case and that put that inside the backpack's notebook case. It feels very secure that way. My only critique is that I would like to have seen more small pockets for ipods, phones, usb drives, pens, etc.There are hardly any---maybe one.
