I think this makes a great bag for students who are into outdoor pursuits. You get a suspension system that can handle anything you’d want to do for 12 hours and a top quality build from a great brand. It doesn’t really have as much usable volume as I think a college/university student would want—but with a padded laptop sleeve and some planning I think it would fit that role nicely.
