Is it Durable, You Ask?  Does Water Roll off a Duck’s Back?

How about breathable mesh panels on the back of the pack for a comfy commute?  Check.

Is it designed well enough to protect my laptop and all my media gear?  Only every pocket.  Check!

Do those heavily-padded straps also help absorb shocks?  Check.

What about a water resistant bottom?  (I thought you’d never ask.)  Check.

Does it have rocket-boosters and stealth mode?  No, but that would be cool.  Maybe in the next version.
