I homeschool my daughter and we take her work with us to the library, homeschool group meetings, parks and other places so she really needed a quality way to carry all of her supplies and snacks. I saw this backpack and decided to by it for her to use. It can hold her laptop, workbooks, writing utensils and snacks. The backpack can hold up to a 15 inch laptop or a 10 inch tablet. It has divided pockets on the inside to keep everything organized and it has 2 side pockets as well as a zipped pocket on the front. The shoulder straps are padded so it helps to distribute the weight of the backpack evenly over her back. The backpack is made from nylon with a light denim look and it has a soft polyester lining to protect the content from scratches. The laptop compartment is padded to protect her laptop from damage. My daughter really likes this backpack and I like the high quality materials that it is made of.
