Bought this in search of an alternative to my trusty standby--TNF Recon. Love the orange color and many of the features. Great space. The iPad and laptop compartment are very nice. The main compartment is huge. The organizer pocket is somewhat small as this is not a dedicated school bag. Shoulder straps are comfy. Osprey should ditch the pocket on the shoulder strap. With anything inside it would conflict with arm movement. Not totally sold on the side zipper pockets in place of the traditional water bottle pockets. Wish the marsupial front pocket was bigger. The big pocket bottom is not angled --or seemingly as tough--as on the Recon so I hope it's not hard to carry a full load. Osprey reportedly has a great warranty program so I'm not too worried about toughness. My local outdoor store employees love Osprey stuff.
