The D-Lux Medium is a very large bag with an amazing amount of room for stuff. I love the Laptop and iPad compartment that Timbuk2
has included, my iPad has a case on it and it still fits nicely in the compartment (which does not happen with all bags
). So that is a big plus. Also, the laptop compartment houses my MacBookPro 13, but can fit a 15 if you have that. This is the bag that I use on days when I have work during the day and class at night. I can take all of the stuff that I would need for teaching during the day and still have more than enough room for all of my books, binder, and folders (along with the laptop and iPad). It is amazing how much this bag fits. Admittedly, the bag does get heavy when fully loaded, but it is manageable. What would one expect when fully loading a large bag with books, laptop, papers, iPad, etc? The D-Lux Messenger in indie plaid by Timbuk2
fits the bill for me when I need to carry all of my stuff for work and school. On lighter days I have a indie plaid Q Backpack that is awesome for when I need just the essentials (laptop, iPad, and binder). I would recommend this bag, depending upon your needs... as it fits my needs nicely.
