Comfort Carry Portable Locker Pack, 42L is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 62.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lifetime bag This backpack is probably the most functional one I've ever owned. It is extremely spacious, and the big compartment in front that clips comes in handy a lot...the two spaces for water bottles are great. I found that how it fits on my shoulders feels a little funny, but I discovered that it doesn't hurt my back like my others have after wearing them for awhile, so I think the placement is beneficial. Somehow it also feels very light, even with it packed. I purchased the gray, love the gray and the orange.. my partner purchased it in black, and the blue inside is very nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well Made This pack is a tank. Or more specifically, could carry a tank. There is more than enough room for computers, books, papers, spare clothing, you name it. It has tall compartments which allow for a 15" computer to travel with ease. And ti manages to hold all of this securely and without giving in to the weight. The only nag I have, and this is minor, I would love to have the straps be a bit more clingy so that they do not droop off the shoulders. Tightening the straps helps but not entirely. When weighed against the utility of this pack though, this is a minor annoyance and may not even affect some users. I would highly recommend this pack for anyone carrying more than one or two book or computers.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Compartments are too small I bought this to compare with the Turbo Transit III Pack, which I love and have in triplicate for different purposes/places, but has been discontinued. This pack, despite having no bottom compartment to limit the height of items, has vertical compartments that are too narrow/thin for most items. Although it might work for books/laptops, it does not work as a weekend backpack or a flexible pack. I am considering returning it as a result... don’t be fooled by the large volume if nothing useful can fit within the compartments.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good when you carry alot I've had many backpacks from llbean and all have their virtues. I've made a study of back pack abuse. I carry a lot of things on a daily basis. my pack can easily weigh 25 lbs when fully loaded. my last bag, the turbo transit, fit it all but for some reason the way the pockets were set up made it feel unwieldy to carry. the same 25 lbs of stuff fits in this bag and because of the compartment/pocket layout it is much easier to distribute the weight in a comfortable manner. the chest strap is actually a part of the shoulder straps which makes it far more secure. it's also an improvement over the transit packs because it has a generous sized water bottle holder that isn't as prone to having the bottle flip out when handling the bag. the clips on the side that hold the front pocket closed do a good job at holding the bag in a way to make it more compact and less like excess weight is just hanging off your back. the only addition i'd like to see is for the material to be more waterproof than just resistant. getting stuck in a good downpour drenches the bags contents as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It is a great bag..... but I ordered this backpack for my daughter for school since the other large bag is no long available. She does not like the front part of this bag. She says it sticks out and looks weird. She preferred the bungee tie front. She also says she wishes this bag had the bottom zipper pouch for her shoes like the other bag. Also, my daughter had asked me about me not having it monogrammed. I told her I did not remember it being an option on this back. I went back to look and did not see an option to personalize. It is not a bad backpack, we just both agree the other style was better for her needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very spacious My daughter's high school got rid of lockers! We were looking for a spacious, reliable backpack to help her through the year. This pack is huge!!!! She can fit all 5 texts, 5 folders plus a pouch for a calculator, chrome book, pencils, erasers, and personal items. She literally uses this bag as a walking locker! Shoulder straps are wide enough to be comfortable. The only thing she would wish for is the length to be a bit smaller for her petite size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LLBean listened!! I find this new backpack very interesting. I used to purchase the Turbo Transit backpack which, IMO, had a few issues. One, it did not have side bottle holders, Two, all the Turbo backpacks had black lining inside, hence making them a big dark hole to find objects. And three, the Turbo Transit did not have side pulling clips to center the load. The backpack used to droop and pull back with any load at all. I did love the bottom holder for clothing and wet items. Enter this backpack. Just as large, but all problems solved listed above! Wow!! I feel LLBean listened to my comments! Some of the colors have bright interiors including the black bag, which is blue inside. How nice is that? It now has side stabilizing straps, and water bottle holders. The bottom storage is missing, but this is roomy enough to stuff anything inside, so I am fine by that loss. Great backpack and thank you for the design improvements LLBean and listening to your customer base!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Large and Accommodating This backpack is extremely large, which is why I bought it, yet not overly cumbersome. I enjoy that the laptop sleeve that is essentially its own pocket and separate from other items in my pack. The sleeve accommodates my Pixel book Go in its own protective sleeve perfectly. The large main middle pocket will carry almost anything, while I use the large front pocket to carry books, folders, and similar items I need for work. The front stuff pocket is one of my favorite features because I can stuff my rain jacket inside for use if needed and without soaking my other items with rain water. The weight is distributed well and comfortable to wear to and from work, even when carrying a larger load. My 24 oz water bottle fits well and secure in either one of the side pockets. There are many colors to choose from and the contrasting blue interior is pretty sharp as well. If you are in the market for a larger than normal backpack, this pack is certainly a contender.
