This bag does the trick if you're looking to carry your boards, books, gym clothes or in my case air out your running kicks. Some main upsides are it's goggle compartment and comfortable shoulder and hip straps. The only two downsides that I've experienced is that it absorbs a lot of heat during the summer and can't carry a 15inch macbook pro with a sleeve/case in its laptop compartment.
"Gets the job done at the office and out on the slopes"
Originally got this backpack for my snowboarding adventures but it also protects the laptop amazingly well and gets the job done when I have to use it to carry books and stuff around in it! You won't regret it if you get this backpack!!!
This pack hauls my laptop and books to class perfectly, and when its time for the mountain, it carries any gear i need for riding. the board straps work great for attaching my snowboard while hiking. the sunglasses pocket and the expandable water pouch work great for what they were designed for. this isn't the fanciest pack every, but it gets the job done. Get it!!
