The main compartment is a good size and I really like the separators. There is one for the laptop which is padded and another to the front of the bag that fits an A4 large spiral notebook, a copy of David Cowan's Housing Law and Policy and my 7 inch Nexus in a fairly chunky protective case comfortably. It's also fairly tall so my A4 notebook isn't always falling out (leaving only an inch or so at the top of it). That still leaves the main space free!
I've not really used the laptop part, but it's more or less what you'd expect - a padded compartment with a velcro strap over the top. I does comfortably fit my large 15' Vaio Gaming laptop in a neoprene sleeve (something which my old Jansport Trinity could not do), however the velcro wouldn't fasten over it (for me it's not important as it's already in a protective sleeve as well). I've not tried my smaller ultrabook yet.
From the pictures the straps don't look padded but they are on the side that faces your body. However, they are considerably less padded than the Jansport Trinity. Again for me this is no issue and was actually a plus as it made the backpack lighter and less bulky.
My only issue is not with the item, but with the colour shown on Amazon (as other reviewers have mentioned). I would suggest before buying ANY colour apart from Black that you do a bit more research - you can find more accurate representations elsewhere on the web.
I should note that the listing price here was cheaper than the in-store price which is why I purchased on Amazon. Also this bag is really big.
Lastly... it is true to the colour in photo. Oh... I should also mention shipping was on time.
I will return to provide updates on the wear and tear of the product as I am hoping it too will survive the use yet to come.
I would recommend this for an older child 12yrs+ as it would be a little too big for younger children. There is a smaller one and a larger one than this so this is the middle sized backpack. As always all Kipling bags are great quality bags strong and sturdy and come with a monkey to boot, what's not to love!
-There is an internal laptop pocket, which is incredibly useful
- The zips are sturdy
- There are multiple pockets to carry stuff in.
- Straps are very strong, and feel quite comfortable.
- The bag is not waterproof.
- The lining in places is very thin
- The straps are quite thin, and could do with slightly more padding.
- After carrying many schoolbooks in, the straps dig in.
Overall, if you are looking for a backpack to carry small amounts of stuff in,this is the backpack for you but if you need to carry lots of stuff, look elsewhere.
My husband bought me one of these bags when I was going away overnight and needed a bag that looked nice but would also take everything I needed. This fitted the bill perfectly.
The space in this bag is really surprising - I can get a couple of changes of clothes and a pair of shoes in along with all my other bits and pieces. So, the space in the bag is fab.
Something else I am really pleased about is how comfortable it is to carry. The shoulder straps are padded and I can carry this bag, full of things and hence with some weight, quite comfortably for several hours.
