I ordered this in December to take on a trip to India. A nice lady (Jessica) tried her best to get it for me before I left to have for my extended trip, but because of the December postal rush, that didn't happen. Now that I've had a chance to use it on a daily basis, and on other trips, I wish I'd had it. Like most things, it's not perfect. But it's pretty darned close under the right circumstances.

There's so much good, I'll start with the bad. The openings give the impression that you can use the entirety of the pockets. You can't. Because of the zippers and the handles, you get a bit less space than implied. But it does work, I have to say.

That last picture is my Surface Pro 4 with Type Cover, and as you can see it's a bit of a tight fit. I haven't tried yet with my XPS 13, but I think it would fit handily. But I wouldn't go with anything any larger than that. But that leads to my next con... the laptop compartment has a lining so you won't get any scratches or anything. But other than that, there's no padding at all. I'm getting another case for my surface pro for that reason. And my XPS has a minimal casing on it. But there's absolutely no protection. But for my uses, that's all the cons.
It's well made, the carabiner is in the perfect place, and even though the use of it as a backpack seems a bit jury rigged, it actually works well- better than actual straps would in my opinion. There were concerns about the phone pocket, but they're completely unfounded.
As far as improvements go, I wish that you could get it without the zippers on select pockets (for me, the pocket beside the phone pocket). It would make it better to access documents you need on the go, like your passport. A little more padding rather than just the liner would be welcome, but not sure if you could do that without making it bulky, and that's one of the major selling points to me- that it's not bulky.
I'd wholeheartedly recommend it, and do think that it's more than worth the price of admission.

Let me know if there are specific questions that I can answer.
