Lots of pockets, good padding
This is a great backpack for every day use and travel. There are tons of pockets on it. There is decent padding for your netbook (a larger laptop won't fit in) and a good amount of compartments for pens and other things. The amount of straps on it can get a little obnoxious if you don't intend to use them. When you "strap in" this backpack feels very secure and sturdy. I like the depth of the backpack as it is more compact and stylish unlike some deep puffy backpacks. For capacity reference, I fit 8 loose red bulls, 2 cans of soda and a 6 pack of sam adams bottles and the main compartment was full but not over-stuffed. The fleece lined compartments are a nice touch. The backpack advertises that you can strap your snowboard to it, but I don't think I'd use it for that purpose ever.

i love this backpack!!
i got this backpack to carry my laptop, books, and extra stuff to school. I can even fit my dslr in this bag. love the brackets in the front of the bag. i use it to carry my tripod and jacket. Looks way better than it does in the pictures. i got the black one and was hoping the grey accents would not be too light. they are darker grey and look amazing. I'm glad i got this backpack.

This backpack is great!
This backpack is great! I bought it as a birthday gift for my boyfriend and he totally loves it. We got the gray denim looking one with the maroon trim and zippers. He's 6'4" and it seems to fit perfectly. He really likes the buckles on the shoulder straps and the hip strap for big hikes and mountain biking. There are perfect spots for his glasses and laptop and so much more. The only minor negative is that the fuzz lined pockets could have smoother, more finished seems inside. From my experience, you can't go wrong with DaKine gear.
