    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.

    • How accurate was the sizing? great
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. good
    • Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? yes
  • 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.

    • How accurate was the sizing? The bag was listed as wider than it TRULY is. Short by about 2 inches.
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. Poor. Threads are already starting to come apart on the straps due to weight.
    • Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? Don't know. Didn't really examine it that closely.
  • 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!

    • How accurate was the sizing? exact
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. durable,lightweight
    • Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? no
  • 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.

  • good enough

    So far I have found that it accomodates what I need it for, though moderately tightly. Overall I shall continue to use it until I need a new one. It is, with my computer, papers, books and small cd player and Beethoven symphony cds, somewhat heavy.

  • Mtn Wally

    Just what I needed to use to travel as a "non carry-on" carry on (not be charged for). A good man bag for travel and computer/briefcase for work.

    The metal part to hold the strap keeps coming undone.

  • Computer bag

    Love this bag. I purchase this bag to carry my laptop computer when I travel. It has more space for all the attachment. The material is water resistant and it has a shoulder strap.

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. stevemass on Apr 7, 2014

Answer This Question

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! overstockcustomercare1 on Apr 13, 2014

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? michaelf84 on Sep 5, 2013
