More than the description says
on 6 January 2014
I am a disabled person on a wheelchair, finding a good backpack is quite complicated since i have a very active life and require a backpack that is both light-weight (as to not burden my chair and hempen the transfer in my car) and large enough to fit enough stuff and a 17'' laptop.
I've been using another CaseLogic backpack for a long time now, one designed specially for wheelchairs. It had it's merits in terms of design, but also a huge drawback - it basically had only 1 big section and it was impossible to organize my things inside. That pack got severely used tho and the model is discontinued, so i've been looking for a replacement for a while. We were pondering this one with my wife, since it seemed very nice in design, and quite small. Reviews were all great too, and one guy had made a very nice video review on youtube, in which he shows the pack in detail. The only doubt we had was that in the description it says that it's meant to fit 13 to 14 inch laptops, and i have a 17 inch one. Looking at the video review tho, it seemed to us that there's actually quite a lot of space left once the reviewer put his iMac in the laptop compartment. So we decided to risk it and give it a try - Turns out the pack fits a 17'' laptop perfectly fine, without any stretching, deformation or anything. Only thing to consider if you use a 17 inch laptop is that it's not entirely covered by the special padding, there's a part that sticks out, but that shouldn't be a problem really, unless you smash your pack with something very heavy. And to be honest, the bigger laptop actually fits better, since there's less free space and it holds better in place.
Other than that, the pack is very well made, beautiful and stylish, with a lot of different pockets and places to organize your things. It remains very light, so if you roll fast with your wheelchair, it doesn't "flap" behind, hitting you in the back because of the inertia (wheelchair users will understand).
Highly recommend to anyone who's looking for a well made, modern and stylish pack, with the option to fit even larger laptops.
