I had used my traditional Anello backpack for work for many years and loved it. But I've now gotten a laptop for work since we've changed to hybrid and it became too heavy and too much for my trusty Anello, my back and shoulders would hurt from the weight of commuting with my laptop and usual things.
I was so impressed with the quality of this bag, definitely get what you pay for and in this case, it's functionality, design and quality. I've only used it once since it arrived (I only have to go to the office 1x a week now) but I can definitely feel the straps and bag providing proper support. My back and shoulders didn't hurt at all with my laptop and usual items. I also love all the compartments (I'm one of those people who loves everything to fit properly as perfectly as possible). It doesn't bulge like crazy when it's full and I love that it retains its shape whether full or empty.
So far, highly impressed and I also love that it's very stylish. My only complaint is it doesn't have a back end zipper like Anello for me to quickly unzip and grab my book or whatever in the main compartment but most bags don't have that either so I'll get used to it.
Good quality and design.
So far I have been quite impressed with the bag. I decided to gift myself to the premium edition as I liked the look a lot better and it has a more polished look which is exactly what I was looking for. It has many sections that help organize my things including a specific compartment for my laptop. The straps have cushioning that makes carrying heavier items more comfortable. Additionally, the inner compartments for water bottle and umbrella have come handy. My compact umbrella is stored away in its own space. My only critique so far is that my 40 oz Takeya water bottle is unable to fit into the mentioned compartments.It doesn't fit most car holders either so I'm not surprised. I'm sure it can fit most water bottles though. Overall, a quality bag that is versatile, stylish, and has a lot of pockets.
