Not according to specs on size Specifications say fits 15" laptop but my 14.5 x 1.25" laptop just barely fits. I cannot use the laptop sleeve (maybe under 13" really) which makes airport security annoying. If you are looking for a school-sized daypack try something bigger - the main pocket will just take your lunch and a windbreaker. After hard usage for a month the zipper has NOT broken but I am putting a lot of strain on it. Once I have my laptop in, there is just room for an e-reader and a larger-style laptop cord in the main pocket. The tag in the main pocket is lined up just perfectly to get in the way when you try and zip it. The middle pocket is pretty roomy, although narrow in width, and I can fit my 35 mm camera, first aid kit and very small purse here. The material is sturdy and does not show wear easily.

Beautiful but small like all of Columbia products So I am preparing for a European trip that will include some backpacking. I needed a bag that was durable, beautiful and big. I had already ordered a 3n1 jacket, which of course was not true to size, so I made sure to ask for specification on this bag before I ordered. The specifications said this bag and the Thundercone were similar, if not exact, in size so I settled on this for aesthetic reasons. This bag is well made, water/dirt proof and easy on the back...but small. I currently have a bunch of items packed in it, in hopes of stretching it out before the trip. The little front pocket is good for keys or your passport for easy access. The side straps above the side pockets makes carrying water bottles a breeze and there is some nice padding in the largest compartment that can protect a tablet or laptop. It arrived so compressed I wouldn't believe a magazine could fit inside but hopefully after some time it will be able to carry all of my essentials. The only reason I am harking on the size issue is because it is listed as a trial/travel bag. November 19, 2014
