I'm search for a backpack that I can bring to work, but also carry enough clothes in for weekend trips. Ideally, I'd like something with a separate laptop compartment. Black or blue preferred, but not required.

I bike to work with this bag every day
Biking to work means having to deal with the occasional rain storm. I wanted a water resistant bag so I knew my laptop wouldn't get soaked when I did. I liked that this bag was top loading but also had a separate compartment for the laptop so I didn't need to take everything out of my bag just to get my computer out. The bag is big enough to carry my gym stuff along with my computer, but it's not bulky. The only downside is the Flex Vent on the back of the bag that is supposed to help cool your back and not be as hot doesn't help much, but that's pretty much the case with any commuting backpack. All in all, very happy with this purchase.
