I received this pack as a birthday gift. It is my everyday "briefcase" for work now. I can get everything in there. There is an awesome tablet sleeve for my iPad AND a separate padded sleeve for my MacBook! All that with room to spare and all the right pockets and compartments. At the drop of a hat, I can use for a day hike as well. This will be the perfect carry on bag for traveling as well. I can wear it (loaded) for a long time with no discomfort whatsoever! Merrell really has a winner here and I am so glad I have this pack!
