Not a bad bag! But not for me...11/25/2010
I bought the bag because I have been using a backpack and I feel like I'm in school But I'm not in school. I'm a working man with a wife and kids and a house and a car. So I should have a bag like this right? Well it seems all well and good in print. But the reality is that the bag is a tad small for me. And with 3 magazines, a 2.5" USB HD, iPod, a folder of documents,pens, USB Sticks, and a few other items this bag (rain slicker outfit) got HEAVY! And slung over one shoulder doesnt help. The other issue is the main flap has a slot on the outside for magazines/papers. The idea is you can pop open this pocket without getting into the guts of the bag. But the flap becomes heavy when filled so when you DO need to get into the main compartment, the flap is a tad unwieldy. It's heavy and stiff. So for me the bag is good looking but not quite practical. Back to the backpack. I'll try a fancy Tumi to appear grown up. Hey, it's only money...
Bought it when it was featured on a recent daily email. It looks good and holds a lot of things. My 15.6" (yes 15.6") laptop fits in it... snugly. I thought I had a 15.4" when I ordered but checked later and realized it was .2" bigger. Some bags make it almost impossible to fit anything bigger but it works good with this one (laptop is of medium thickness). My only wish is that it has a zippered outer pocket but I can live without it.
