This bag is even better then I expected. First off, I love the material it is made of. Feels very easy to clean and extremely durable. It has plenty of room. I don't travel with my laptop that often, but the padded compartment is a nice touch. I bought this bag for a week long trip to Europe. I tend to pack light, but this bag seems to be the perfect fit for a week long trip. I was able to fit 6 t-shirts, a hoodie, pair of shorts, all my toiletries, ipod w/ chargers/headphones, towel, 6 pairs of boxers and socks, sunglasses, and I also picked up the Dakine travel sleeve which tucks away nicely in the back security panel (Awesome feature). Overall I'm extremely pleased with my purchase. I usually only travel 2-4 days at a time, so this is going to be the perfect backpack.
