It has a classic and sporty look, which will keep it in style for a long time. The zipper pulls are made of sturdy cord with plastic ends to keep them from fraying, and the vinyl material makes the bag easy to keep clean.
Just received this bag in the mail today, not happy! This bag is 18 inches, but what it doesn't tell you, is that isn't the actual size of the laptop sleeve. I have a 16" laptop...and it doesn't fit. My laptop is about an inch and a half too big for the protective sleeve of this bag. Minus the small laptop sleeve, I would definitely recommend this bag. It has all the pockets you need to store your school/work supplies. And it seems very sturdy and durable.
Did the product fit true to size? No
How is the quality of the product? Good
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? Yes
From the description I gathered that this bag was for a 17" computer. When I received the bag there was no way my computer would fit! It's frustrating because I needed a bag and now I have to send this one back! Nice bag but BAD description!
How accurate was the sizing? It did not fit a 17" computer
Please tell us about the quality of the product. It was good quality but the size was not what it said it was
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? Yes
I needed a laptop case for my new 17" laptop. The padded section for the laptop does not fit a 17" laptop, it is at least 2" too small. The first case I received did not have a shoulder strap as indicated, but the second one did. Disappointed that the case does not fit my laptop, but I had to use it because I had to travel.
How accurate was the sizing? Was to fit my 17" laptop, it won't fit into the padded section - about 2" or more too small.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Quality is good.
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? Yes.
The bag has a really nice design and looks to be made of sturdy material but I had two major problems with it:
1) Within one month, the Velcro strap used to secure the laptop ripped off. This happened after light/normal use. This was NOT a heavy-duty wear and tear situation.
2) The bag squeaks (loudly) when I walk with it over my shoulder. It's the plastic-on-plastic sound of the shoulder strap locks. This might sound like an insignificant criticism, but try walking through a quiet library and watching every head turn your way because your bag is squeaking loudly. It was quite frustrating.
Will be returning it and replacing with something else.
I wrote out a longer message with the problems I had encountered, with this bag; the FIRST & ONLY time I tried to use this ~ 12/5/2014 ~ when I went to a sleep study with my daughter. Well although I know there wasn't much in the bag besides my computer & chargers in the bag.
My 1st problem came up when I was zipping up one of the bigger pockets and the "fob" zipper pull thing on the zipper came off.
2nd problem was when I was zipping up the front small pocket for "important papers, passport, cellular phone". As I was zipping that pocket up, the zipper pull itself came off in my hand. At which point I called to to return it. Now I am waiting for the return authorization sticker to arrive.
Just my 2 cents, hope it helps someone
