  • Here's the bottom front pocket. One thing I really like about this bag is that the pockets are really well-designed and you can shove a ton of stuff into them. Here I have my teas and Diet Snapple packets along with my GPS, digital camera and charging cords and meds/dietary supplements stowed away. The bottom pocket is big enough to hold a full-sized magazine or hardcover book with lots of room to spare, it's where I shove most of my important gadgets. The interior has a fishnet zippered lining for stowing away small objects that might otherwise get loose or would be difficult to dig around and find.

  • The Front Center pocket has about half of the storage space of the Front Bottom conpartment. This has a ton of room for several cellphones/smartphones, ipods, smaller chargers, a thick wallet and several other items.

  • The top central pocket is deceptive because it is much, much bigger than it looks. The top area has a small zippered compartment for business cards and snacks, but if you reach into the front section, you'll notice it extends all the way to the bottom of the backpack. While this is convenient for shoving all kinds of large items in here, it's hard to find stuff once you've placed them in this pocket.

    No real big deal on the design of the bag. All standard stuff to me. I'd like to see if they could design belt bags for netbooks. I found a regular belt bag from North Face that could fit my Asus EEEPC 1000H and accessories.
