Rated 5 out of 5áby xina11 a perfect fit!
I've been using this backpack for a week now and I'm very happy with it. I actually wish I had listened to my office mate (she has one as well) and purchased it much sooner! I own my own business and commute 2 hours a day. It fits my mac laptop and pretty much everything else I need for transporting my "office" between work and home. I'm also happy with all the little pockets that help me organize things. And I still have extra space for when I may need to pack a change of clothes or throw in a few other things. I keep thinking I'm forgetting something on my way to work because I have so many less bags to load into my car! And it's sits comfortably on my back as well when I carry it. I'm very pleased with this purchase and would definitely recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Stan19 I love it
Such a useful well-made bag. I am a teacher and it has only been a month but I am in love with this bag. All the pockets have been well thought out and there is adequate space for the laptop, iPad and phone as well as an ample open space in the center for shoes or lunch. More slim silhouette feels more professional than my old bookbag. Still new so I can't say anything about durability except that it feels well made and it is sold by LL Bean.

Rated 5 out of 5áby islandrat It solved a problem; the color is yummy
Have used shoulder bags and back packs for eons. Finally my left trapezius muscle said enough and went on strike. A visit to my doc, a few weeks of physical therapy, some at home exercises and a back pack that doesn't depend on the shoulder area to haul has me back with the pack I'm reviewing. The design doesn't put the load on the shoulder muscles, in fact barely uses them.
I won't be hauling 35 pounds of groceries or camping gear, but I also won't have the problem recur in all likelihood because of the way this one is built;' most of the load rides down at or below my waist. The side pockets are great, the one designed for a bottle of water also hauls my pint mug that has a handle with no strain. Now to find a good home for the rucksack I've had for almost 30 years that won't wear out and the gaudy yellow green featherweight pack I've been using for several months. I will miss them both but not the misery of that shoulder muscle sending its unambiguous message.. It's well designed for my purposes and the blue one I bought is a really lovely color.

Rated 4 out of 5áby TreeBob Good but not great!
I tend to load up anything I carry, so while I like this daypack, it needs to be a little roomier, design needs to be squared up instead of sooo tapered. Like the way it hugs my back and it is comfortable to wear.
Full sized computer fits great in the sleeve, don't have an tablet, so along with a portfolio I also have 2 large file folders in the main compartment.
With the side pockets also loaded, it is difficult to place my items into the main compartment so the computer has to go in last.
Hip belt needs to be wider, at least 1.5", prefer 2.0" and chest strap needs to be placed two inches lower and a little wider, 1.0 - 1.25".
Other than those items, love the day pack

Rated 4 out of 5áby Jane73 Good, could be great.
Pros: lightweight, plenty of storage for lots of small things, separate, padded areas for laptop and tablet. Very nice looking, compact, not a lot embellishments = professional looking. I ordered it in black.
Opportunities for improvement:
- laptop area needed to be 1/2" wider (imagine my frustration)
- no separate area for shoes (many commuters, esp women who wear heels at the office, bring them along to change into later. A separate zip area, perhaps on the bottom, would have been ideal.
- zippers are ok. Love that the pulls don't make noise when you walk, but they are bit "sticky". Especially since we're usually fumbling for IDs, keys, etc., while on the go, this is an important area.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Lothiriel1 Perfect for my needs!
I bought this pack specifically for my daily train commute. The interior compartment is spacious enough for my binder, planner, a couple of small books, and a lightweight sweater (I could fit a slim laptop as well, if I had one). The side pockets are thoughtfully designed and keep smaller items organized. The overall bag profile is sleek, and it rides very comfortably on my back. The zippers could work a bit more smoothly, so I just have to be more patient with them. VERY pleased with this purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5áby MIbuckeye Very versatile
I bought this for my son in college who had his previous LLBean backpack stolen from his car. It is great for books, laptop/tablet, and workout clothes all at the same time. Plus, my three sons have always had LLBean backpacks. They don't wear out! (One of my other sons was hit by a car, but his LLBean backpack protected his laptop and it was fine. My son only needed a few staples, too.)

Rated 4 out of 5áby KyCats13 Loved the Look and Feel, BUT
I loved the look and feel of this laptop backpack, BUT my 17 inch, HP, EliteBook laptop would not fit in the laptop sleeve. I would suggest that the manufacturer revise the design to have a slightly expandable sleeve. Everything else about the backpack was exactly as expected. I'm sad to say that I had to return it and move on to another product.
