is it waterproof at all
Thanks so much for the question. No this bag is not waterproof. It is highly water resistant with water resistant fabric and a cover over the laptop sleeve zipper so will certainly be good to run from the train station or anywhere for a short amount of time in the rain. But if you're indending on spending an hour in the rain it's best to put a rain cover over the top. If you're wanting to use it for a travel pack where it may fall in the water (boat travel or something), then best to protect everything with fully waterproof drybags.
If you're after an exptremely weatherproof (though not fully submersible) commute bag then check out the Exped Cascade here: https://mountainequipment.com/collections/backpacks-hiking-trekking/products/cascade-25-weatherproof-commute-backpack?variant=12388006559779
The advantage of the Lowe Alpine Core though is it has more organising compartments while the Exped is a much more simple design.
I hope that helps but if I can help further please don't hesitate to get in touch at email@example.com
