Hi folks, I give this a 5 star rating, and pretty enthusiastically, with one caveat. THE PRICE. I got it for under $15. Cheaper than a basic backpack at Costco, which normally goes for $17.99 (west coast price).
1. First of all, they label this a "tall and thin" style backpack, which means it's not 12" from the front wall to back wall. It's more like 6", which isn't too bad. 2. It has a separate compartment for your computer, and it's adequately padded. 3. The back of the backpack is FULLY padded. It's about a 1/2 inch thick foam padding, which is perfect. 4. The material is not too thin, though it's not ballistic nylon. 5. It's pretty light, I would estimate it's about a pound, which sounds heavy, but my Tumi laptop bag is 4 lbs, and my Swisspack backpack (way too padded) is more than 3 lbs. Some companies go crazy on the padding. 6. It DOES have enough beverage compartments, separate zipped compartments, etc.
I was looking for a bag with decent price and superior quality, also not looking bulky. The laptop compartment seems to be good enough, i dropped my bag with my laptop inside a few times (from a height about a foot or two) quite hard, and was surprised to see it is kept safe. Also, since the fabric is water repelling, i don't have to worry about my gadgets kept in the back being in contact with spilled water etc. And i absolutely love the small compartments they have where i can stack my pens and stuffs and find them easily without much hassles.
I love the Granite Gear Champ Backpack. Its great to carry my Chromebook in as well as my 15" MacBook Pro. It has various little compartments that allow me to store hard drives and cables. I love the color scheme too. It has very comfortable shoulder straps which makes carrying a full size laptop about 15" plus cables, etc a lot easier. I love this thing. I take it everywhere I go.
