This is great as an alternative to a briefcase or as a regular backpack for everyday use. Features two roomy internal compartments - one padded to protect a laptop; a large zipped external pocket with pockets for phone, cards etc; and two small side pockets - one zipped and with an eyelet for feeding MP3 player headphones through to the outside.
