I ordered this rucksack for university, since I decided a rucksack would be more practical than a "messenger" bag. Of course rucksacks have a tendency to look a bit square/un-trendy so after much browsing the Easkpak site I decided on this one because it looks a little nicer than the average rucksack. After receiving it I'm not disappointed. I went for the "blackpannel" style which I think is a perfect compromise between trendy and understated. The bag is a nice size and whilst you wouldn't use it to go camping, it'll comfortably fit your laptop plus a few folders, maybe even a change of clothes and a towel.
My only gripe is with the laptop compartment. Whilst it'll fit 15" notebooks, it's raised by an inch or so meaning you'll probably have to "wrap" the bag around the top corners of the laptop to fit it in (which isn't really a problem, just means retrieving and packing it will require two hands). Additionally, the compartment itself isn't very tall which means you won't be able to fix anything larger than a netbook using the Velcro strap. This meant my 13" ultraportable was free to bump back and forth when nothing else was in the bag. Not a major issue, but one of those odd little design issues you find.
Still, overall I'd definitely recommend this bag, yes it does look nice in the flesh, not just the picture!

This was a specific request from my son at Uni - apparently everybody has them! To be honest, it was expensive and doesn't look like it's worth it but...so far so good: he has used it every day, it comes with a lifetime guarantee, and he loves it (which is all that matters!)

Needs some works on the shoulder contact point it's way too rough (It actually hurts), things bounce around a lot inside.
Overall: Meh.

Arrived early, so We were delighted.
The rucksas is big enough to get all my son's college stuff in and he is hoping it is waterproof as he believes. Its not rained since he had it.
