I just received mine today in Graphite (my coworker also got the Limited Edition version which is very similar but not quite the same). The bag looks fantastic inside and out and I have little doubt that it will be durable on the outside. The layout is nice inside with a good number of pockets HOWEVER there is only a single slot for a pen/pencil/stylus and that is a bit disappointing. My other major complaint about the design is the main compartment (not the laptop slot) and its zipper. The main compartment has quite a bit of space, however the zipper only goes ~1/3 of the way down, making it difficult to see what's down in there and grab something specific and there is no sort of divider system in the bottom to separate all that space to a point where it is easier to find things by feel, so you're basically rooting around blind or dumping everything out find what you're looking for. My final reservation with this pack is the laptop sleeve. They really talk up this HDF protection but I certainly won't be taking any chances. The laptop compartment has good padding for the front and back which is nice, but there is ZERO (at least that I could feel) padding on the sides and particularly worrisome is the pad on the bottom. The bottom pad isn't super wide and is somehow velcro-d into place, however the big problem is that the padding isn't continuous and there is a gap where the seam is that my brand new 15" Retina Macbook Pro really seems to like settling into, which means it could get dinged if I set it down wrong/too hard. Even with those complaints, I still like the bag. It just doesn't seem as bullet-proof as other older Brenthaven bags I've seen and the pockets aren't as thoughtful as they could be. FWIW, I'm coming from a Timbuktu Custom Commute which has oodles of easily accessible, useful pockets, but the laptop protection is a joke. This bag, despite my reservations, offers much better protection than the Timbuktu.
