This is a fabulous backpack. I bought it for 3-month trip to Europe. After doing extensive research, and extensive online shopping, I finally decided on this bag. Although I didn't want to spend the money it costed, I now know it was well worth every penny. The leather is incredibly high quality, and it has endured much over the trip. I get compliments everywhere I go. It's beautiful, function, and lightweight. I like that it is large enough and padded enough to hold my MacBook Pro. It has enough pockets to be functional (and a water-bottle side pocket- VERY convenient), but not so many to be confusing and leave you unzipping 84 compartments to find something. I highly recommend this bag, and as always, Overstock's customer service was fabulous. I know this is a bag I will be using for many years to come, and I think it's going to last me through my whole college career.
