Apparently this bag has gone through a redesign so some of the reviews don't match up to the current iteration of the product (the pictures and description are accurate, however). The current version (as of December 2019) has a separate, padded laptop compartment and an additional zipper on the main compartment so it can be opened fully, almost like a suitcase. The laptop compartment is very spacious and protected for you MacBook people, but felt a bit overkill for my surface pro (much smaller). I kinda wish there was an option for without a separate laptop compartment and just an internal sleeve instead, as it is difficult to use that compartment for anything other than a laptop and I feel it takes up some space from the main one. If you regularly carry a laptop, especially a full-size one, you'll love the separate compartment. I welcome the clamshell-style zipper on the main compartment since it makes it much easier to get things in the various internal pockets or to pack. It seemed like it was a common suggestion for the previous design, as well.
I found the internal and external pockets to be extremely thoughtful; It was easy to find and place and access all my electronics. I hadn't used the aqua guard zippers before and was worried they'd be difficult to zip, but I found they glide smoothly. I was also concerned the bag might scratch or show wear easily, but it is holding up well even after taking it on vacation. Even with my nit-pick, I'm very pleased with this bag.
