"Really like this bag, it is large enough to hold my 15" laptop, two 1.5" binders, and two 1" binders along with my small planner and lots of supplies. Straps are nice and padded and this is a good size for me as a 5ƌ" female as the bottom sits against my hips and isn't too tall to hurt my neck with the way the straps come together before attaching to the bag itself."

"Overall: I was considering 2 different Timbuck2 backpacks before I discovered these from Dakine. I originally looked at the Dakine Element and then I found the 101 pack and fell in love. The Dakine packs just have a much more polished look when you compare them. I watched several videos about the pack and looked at all the pictures from the listing. Things to note: The current Dakine 101 pack has the tablet sleeve as pictured above. I chose the "black stripe" color and it has the exact appearance I was looking for. It reminds me of a pin stripe suit, very nice for something that's business professional but not just another black bag. Positives: 1) laptop sleeve: It has a corner zip sleeve between the backpack straps and the handle for your laptop. I wanted a laptop specific compartment for protection and to help move through TSA a little faster. 2) size: I am 6ft and found this back pack the perfect size for me. The bag sits on my back and not on the top of my butt. Don't mistake this, the bag is not small at all. The main compartment could hold my hoodie and a change of gym clothes along with my laptop, charger and tablet easily. 3) pockets and organization: It has a padded lined tablet sleeve that I think is great. It's a little oversized so I think it could accomodate a number of sizes. Plus tons of organization pockets including one on the panel behind your back. Great for stuff you need to keep secure like ID, boarding pass etc. Negatives: 1) This is really a tiny one. The lining in the pack has a felted texture that seems to trap pet hair and never let it go. If you have a dog or cat that sheds you will understand my pain. 2) The zippers jingle a LOT! lol people will hear you coming. Other than that... this bag is perfect!"

"I purchased the Herringborne backpack and wasn't expecting to get an all-gray backpack, but it still looks really nice. The pattern fooled me into thinking it was black and white, but it is really just how the light hits it. Overall, it's a really nice looking and well built bag. Comes with several compartments that are lined and have sturdy zippers. I love how the laptop compartment zips on the side and it fits my 15.6 inch laptop perfectly, with just enough room for a laptop sleeve. I read the reviews before buying this item and decided to get a waterproof laptop sleeve just in case, although the backpack itself seems very durable. Overall I am happy with this purchase and feel that it is a well made backpack that was worth the money. When wearing the pack with my laptop inside, I can barely tell I'm carrying any weight at all! I will definitely consider returning to Dakine for my future needs."

"It is a great bag! Has plenty of space for everything. It may seem like it would be heavy with books and laptops but once you put it on the padding on the shoulders and back makes you forget that you are even wearing it!"

"I've had two Dakine Terminal bags that I absolutely loved, but both of their main zippers broke. I overloaded them with books and all my tech gear, clothes, and the kitchen sink too. Most of my books are now on my iPad and I decided to size down to the 101. So far I love it. Has a place for everything. I also bought the matching travel toiletry bag that is awesome as well. Purchase from eBags; they have the best prices and they're quick with their delivery!"

"This backpack still looks like new after a semester of use at college in the Midwest. My previous Dakine bag (30L Element Pack) lasted two years of high school and two years of college until I had to replace it because the main zipper started coming apart, so I can definitely testify as to the durability of these bags. If you are looking for a backpack to last you all of high school or all of college, then the Dakine packs are for you. Positives: 1) separate laptop compartment makes it easy to get laptop in and out, especially at airport security 2) large main compartment fits plenty of books 3) useful organizer for 4 pens/pencils, small calc, etc. 4) iPad sleeve Negatives: 1) no clip to hold a keyring 2) only holds 1 water bottle Take note: This bag is not very waterproof! It will protect your things in a light drizzle for a few minutes, but I don't trust it to keep my laptop and books dry when I have to walk more than 5 minutes to class in a decent rain."

"I bought this bag as a gift for my boyfriend who wanted a black backpack. He is extremely picky and wanted something very plain. This bag definitely is the perfect bag. It's simple but not boring. Great quality, the bag came in the mail incredibly quickly (which was surprising, especially since I ordered it a few days before Christmas), perfect backpack for organizing... perfect slot for laptop and separate well protected slot for iPad. Lots of room for organizing, and as always with Dakine, very comfortable when carrying on back."

"Love this bag! I use it for travel and work, filling it easily with my iPad, laptop and camera. Fabric is very durable, pockets are many, great sizes and stacked strategically to maximize space. Bright plaid helps me pick it out in a crowd!"

"I had a Dakine backpack that was pretty much identical to this one, so I thought it would have all the same pockets and internal design. It doesn't. My old one had big heavy duty zippers, this one has thin flimsy ones. My old one had all kinds of little compartments inside the front pocket. This one has 5 or 6 less. The one cool thing that my old one didn't have is the zipper pocket on the side. But other than that, I wish it were the exact same as my old one."

"Love it. Tons of pockets, more than you'll even use. It seems to be indestructible, which is why I buy Dakine products. I also use a Dakine Nomad hydration pack for some pretty rough mountain biking, and it has been so good I decided to get this. I also like the way their products look and feel when you're wearing them. I'll stick to Dakine for any of this type of stuff as long as they keep making it!"

"This backpack turned out to be great. I was looking for one to carry my Dell laptop for business travel. The laptop bag I was issued at work has a handle at the top and it got really old, lugging it through airports. This adorable Dakine bag has a very nice padded area in the back for the laptop and it is very roomy everywhere else, so I was able to take things for an overnight as well as snacks, cords, etc."
