Good morning all.

I use a messenger bag now for EDC while I'm at work and such but I would love to find a nice backpack in the 25-30 liter range to use for myself. So I was looking for suggestions on what you guys use or recommend is good/decent.

I have a laptop but it's around 15.6" (asus GL502VS) and fairly thick as it's a gaming laptop also that I use. But I plan on buying a MBP in the next couple months. I was thinking of the antero because I LOVE the look of it but hear mixed reviews about no padding and that its lacking in the organization dept. Tom Bihn synapse 25 and the MR urban assault is another I have looked into.

I have an oakley kitchen sink pack (34L) that I use for my laptop most times or more things so I want to keep the size small on this new pack as I want to carry it around on vacation with my 6 year old boy.
