    • poor quality

      Plastic hook that fastens the strap broke the first week of use. Not very good quality.

    • Good bag

      Use this as my secondary bag because its less bulky than my other one. I would go with something more substantial for a lap top but as a light weight file / meeting bag its great and inexpensive.

      I have friends who purchased items from Overstock and were very happy. I, unfortunately cannot say anything positive about the CalPak briefcase. I bought 2 - one for myself and one for my sister. In both cases, the hooks and connection to the straps failed in less than a week! My husband had to put zip tie fasteners on to keep the strap on. I know it was only $*, but thankfully I didn't have a laptop in the bag because it would have been destroyed! As it was, mine and my sister's failed with light weight papers and folders.

      I purchased this item in all three colors as graduation gifts. The students and parents were surprised by the quality and usefulness of the gifts (messenger briefcase). the briefcase is constructed well and the material is very durable. The style and colors were admired by all; a superior bag to carry course work and personal itemsl. Plan to order another for myself.

    • Fair

      This bag would be excellent if the straps would stay clasped. Imagine standing up on public transportation and your bag falls to the floor, the straps are un-done again. I would not recommend this product.

    • Poor Construction; Faulty Measurements

      I use the bag to take my office papers as well as a small lunch bag to work. After about 2 months, I noticed that the threads on the shoulder strap at the hinges is starting to come apart so it's only a matter of time when I'll probably lose the straps altogether. Also, I noticed that the bag was listed wider than it truly is. Even with the expansion zipper at the bottom and sides in open position, it doesn't add up to the dimensions that the seller claims. I guess you get what you pay for. Spend a little more and get a bag that's more sturdy and more true to dimensions.

    • Best diaper bag EVER

      I did not use this as a laptop bag. After being seriously disappointed with many overpriced diaper bags costing $50-$80, I bought this to use as my 8 month-old's daily diaper/daycare bag. Expanded, this has plenty of room for 2 crib sheets, a light and heavy blanket, 3 changes of clothes plus accessories (hat, shoes, bibs, burp clothes) and 3 days worth of diapers and diapering essentials (wipes, diaper cream etc). I recommend the bag whatever your need!

    • Good value and quality product

      I bought this bag, not really expecting much for the price. When I received the bag, I was pleasantly surprised at the quality. It seems to be very good quality and has already suffered some hard use. It is not showing any signs of wear. The bag fits my laptop and reading materials with plenty of room. The only negative issue I have is that there is not a good place to put my computer accessories. The interior pockets are not the right size for my laptop power pack. I would still recommend this to anyone needing a good quality bag that is not very expensive.

    • Good product

      Nice product for the money. Has all the pockets I was looking for. Strap works well. One minor issue is that the leather wrap on the handle. Seems to be synthetic leather and has a "cheap" feal to it. Otherwise, I am very happy with the product.

    • what material is this made of

      • Hello sara, this is made of ripstop polyester. I hope this helps. Have a great day!

    • Where is it made?

      • Hello Valued Customer, I hope your day is going well. This is made in China. Thank you for shopping with us.

    • Does this bag utilize YKK zippers?

    • I see the overall depth of this briefcase is 6 inches but what is the depth of the largest (main) compartment of this briefcase? I am hoping it is most if not all of the 6 inches (when expanded) because I am considering buying it to carry the following: medium Thermos, iPad, 1 magazine, 1 large paperback, 1 small tupperware container, 1 apple, 1 small zippered pouch (cables, A/C adpators), iPhone and a few more items. ( I can put some of these things in the separate pockets but still would like to know the depth of the main section.

      • Hello stevemass, The main compartment of this briefcase does take up the bulk of the six inches. Since this bag is soft-sided, it is capable of expanding more than the 6 inches, so you should have plenty of room for your things. I hope this information helps. Thanks for shopping with us!

    • Hi, how large is the main compartment? There is no picture and I am looking for a bag with one big compartment rather than several small ones. Also, does the back of the bag have a pocket large enough to fit a newspaper, as it appears in the picture?

      • Hello michaelf84, we appreciate your inquiry. This briefcase’s (1) main compartment is about 15x11 1/4 inches. It has a pocket on its back that measures 9x15 inches. We hope you have found this information helpful. Thank you for shopping with us. Have great day!

    • Is there enough room for a computer, textbook, binder, and a charging cord?

      • Hello shelby1990, The briefcase measures 12 inches high x 16 inches long x 6 inches deep and is able to hold many items. We recommend that you stack all your notebooks and computer to make sure that this will work for you. Thank you for shopping; have a great day!
