I carry my tablet around with me a great deal, but as well I like my laptop readily available for longer trips. I pack the cord, the mouse, the pad, the laptop and more into this bag and there is still more room to pack items. The zipper keys are very attractive and easy zips. Pockets and more pockets in this backpack make packing it up easy and I like being organized. I know where everything is in it. The material is nylon, but durable and I think for what I will be using it for will be durable for a long time.
