The Samsonite Xenon 3 Techlocker laptop compartment sits in the middle of the bag with a tablet pocket right in front of it. There is a nylon strap that holds both together. My Macbook Pro fits quite loose in the pocket even with the strap pulled to it’s tightest setting.
Samsonite offers an amazing color selection of black and the outer shell of the bag is made from 1680 Denier Ballistic Polyester which means it will be quite abrasion-resistant.
In terms of water resistance, if you were able to funnel all the rain from a downpour onto the 1680 Denier polyester, the laptop bag is going to be fine. But the zippers aren’t.
In terms of overall storage capacity, the Samsonite Xenon 3 Techlocker wins. The large size, coupled with the dividers allows you to separate out all your larger objects.
There are three external zippered pockets with the two smaller ones on the front of the bag which are easy to access.
The padded vinyl wrap textured handles on the bag are small and flimsy, especially if you are carrying 80 quires of paper and the shoulder strap is a little too small to do any sort of commuting with.
There is a pocket for the telescopic handle of your suitcase which is going to be a god-send since lugging this oversized box with straps in an airport is going to be terrible.
