Laptop

GoRuck GR1
I’m looking for a bag for commuting + under seat on airplanes. What fits both criteria best?
Other models I'd consider, similarly sized with solid laptop storage, are the GoRuck GR1 (both the 21L and 26L version will fit a 16" MacBook Pro or similar) and the Tom Bihn Synik 30 (thicker laptops might not fit). The Osprey Daylite 26+6 has a decent laptop sleeve with a quick-access zipper but not a separate padded compartment like I'd prefer.

GOT BAG REVIEW: World's first ROLLTOP backpack made of ocean plastic!
You know i could put the things i talked about earlier on the batteries and the power banks etc in here and use it that way, but, yes, haven't got to using it that way overall for a year and a half of very solid juice and hunting extremist Tests i've been super impressed with the got bag. It's still looking fantastic, there's no holes in it, there's no wear or tear really but yeah. The the stitching is all top notch

Size

GoRuck GR1
Spirit and Frontier are both 18"x14x8, and there are lots of bags that fit these dimensions, probably the most popular being the Topo CorePack and the GoRuck GR1, both of which are 18" tall. But JetBlue's limit is 17"x13x8 (43.2 x 33 x 20.32 cm). Neither I nor anybody else know how strict they're going to be about it, but I try to play by the rules. I've got a GR2 and I don't think I could make it a full inch shorter just by underpacking, so I assume the GR1 would be similar.

Compartment

GoRuck GR1
Nothing wrong with a less modern but more pragmatic bag, but I think it doesn't suit my line of work. To give an idea of what design I'm looking for, I like the minimal look of the Goruck GR1 Slick, but I'm unsure about carrying around a 1000D bag in the city. I've also checked out the Tom Bihn Paragon that has a similar design, but I can't find too much information on it.

Strap

GoRuck GR1
Big guy looking for a bag solution
Goruck GR1 26L, but maybe you can wait till they will do upgrade, like they did with Rucker 20. Tom Bihn Synapse 25 or Synik 30 maybe. I own S25 and it’s pretty comfortable, but I don’t trust backpack with manny zippers during heavy rains. I’m mostly a rolltop person.

Review: Backpack made of ocean plastic! | GOT Bag Daypack
It feels great to know that my purchase made a positive impact on the planet, so i definitely recommend that you check out gotbag to see if their offerings will meet your needs and what you're looking for, and definitely tell your friends and family about the school company And its mission um, you know if all of us took those extra few minutes and dollars to invest in companies and products like this, we would have a world and a human family that is more fully just alive. So if you're, looking for more eco-friendly product reviews and ideas subscribe and if you've bought something from gotbag or other companies that are making a difference, i would love to hear from you in the comments i'm angela and i'm trying to live more fully alive.

Hiking

GoRuck GR1
I currently have a Goruck GR1 that I love, but I feel like I don't really benefit from the clamshell opening. I mainly get around by train and on my bike, so I rarely have the time and space to lay my pack flat. I got my GR1 because I needed one versatile pack for EDC, light travel, and everything else.

Down bag for backpacking
I’d pack the synthetic bag. Since you will be taking day hikes you won’t have to carry your heavy synth bag all day. And, as you indicate, you won’t have to worry as much about it getting wet.
