“I have used the Smart Alec for about 6 months now and the following are my thoughts on the bag.
I am a backpacker and own 3 different backpacks I use varying on the time of year and length of trip. I also choose to travel by taking backpacks instead of a duffel or a rollerboard since I enjoy just being able to go and have my hands free. I use the Smart Alec to carry my laptop (HP dv2000), papers, books, etc. to/from work and school. I also wanted something that if I went on an overnight business trip, it would have enough room for a change of clothes and I wouldn’t need an additional bag. I did a lot of research on various bags before choosing the Smart Alec, sight unseen.” — Read the entire review in the TOM BIHN forums.
