Nice addition to my backpack choices. This is a mid sized pack that fits a lot of stuff. Laptop will Fit Macbook fullsize. CC is a mirror of other 5.11 backpacks, but works very well. CC velcro is on inside of compartment, not on outside where the straps are. Carries enough gear for day hike, or trip on the airplane (leave CC stuff at home :-)). Very comfortable in a T-Shirt carry and is very non standout for a CC pack. No one looks twice.
