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.

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.
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!

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.
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.
It holds everything I need it to hold (15.6 in MacBook Pro, fan platform, and storage lap desk, large external drive and every cord that all those things require as well as a pair of full size headphones). However, I was disappointed that it did not have the padded divider in the laptop compartment which is what takes a backpack and makes it laptop bag. If I did not have the other things in the compartment holding the laptop in place, it would not hold the laptop securely. Unless you have a fan and other things to stuff the bag with, I wouldn't recommend it for carrying your laptop.

I needed a light weight bag to transport my laptop and this one is ideal. I added a foam sleeve to pad the laptop, and I love it. It looks professional and classy at the same time. I like how everything has a place for organization too. I love this case!
How accurate was the sizing? Excellent!
