"Comfortable and great protection for small loads"
I needed a waterproof backpack to protect my laptop when commuting in the rain. I was familiar with Ortlieb products so I knew this would be of high quality (made in Germany). I wasn't sure I would like the style but I do ! The backpack is surprisingly comfortable. Really comfortable. It is also absolutely rain proof. I still wouldn't throw this thing into a lake, I am not sure it is THAT waterproof but rain sure won't get to the content of this backpack. The top stays closed with velcro. The backpack is very sturdy and looks about the same after years of use except for the foam on the back which might deteriorate gradually, but not within the next decade. The backpack is very simplistic. I use a neoprene sleeve for my notebook (purchased separately, from a different manufacturer). The backpack has a little zipped pocket which I found very helpful, for keys and money. The backpack is large enough for my use but it is not huge. Only thing I would change: I don't need the hip belt.
