Detailed Review of the American Tourister At Work Laptop Backpack
While it is easy to throw around words like ‘ergonomic’ and ‘designer’, this pack does have a stylish profile. Instead of straying too far from the pack, the positives are in the details. Small coloured trim at the base of the handles, the way the zips sit on the top of the 2nd compartment and the curve of the straps.
There are 3 sizes, each designed for the different laptop screens. Small is 52cms, this is big enough for up to 14-inch screens, medium will hold the 15-inch laptops and large is designed for the giant 17-inch laptops. All models will work fine if you use a tablet or iPad.
Pockets and More Pockets
You get a main compartment which is padded. This contains the area / sleeve for your laptop. There is then a large secondary pocket at the front. This opens wide and is plenty big enough for documents. A further smaller pocket is also included. This is just above the logo on the picture above. Topping off the impressive selection of pockets is a water bottle pocket on one side, and mesh pocket for your umbrella on the other side.
In addition to the adjustable strap, you get a carry handle (which is also padded) on top of the bag. Small details include pen holders see the close up of the inside in the gallery at amazon for more on those minor touches.
