I purchased this bag as a laptop carrier for work and was pleasantly surprised by how versatile it is. It was chosen because of the style and size but is loved for all of the pockets and how wonderful the suede is. It wasn't my first choice but the styles I really liked were too small for my 15.6" laptop, but it has all worked out for the best!
It's held up going through the airport. Stands up on it's own. Holds a 17" laptop. Holds snacks and water (a little tight with laptop). Has divider with pockets for cell phone, business cards, small note book, 2 pen holders. Small pocket on the outside for paperback, with another zippered pocket can fit an e-ticket or plane ticket or other small items. No zipper compartment inside. Laptop section has padding on interior side only and has velcro closure. Has one large zipper to close the bag all together. Handles are sturdy and a nice length for shoulder. Looks great. Love it!
I was tired of hauling the black leather clunker, so I ordered the Casual Suade Computer tote to be delivered to my destination. The clunker had more room, but that equated aching hands, shoulders and back. The double straps are deceptive; yes, they do fit on your shoulder. The computer compartment is lightly padded, though only on one panel. The external zip compartment was nifty for my plane ticket, but not much else, however there are plenty more open and Velcro compartments inside. The metal feet are a nice bonus, especially when using the airport ladies' room. The rings and grommets on the handles are good quality, though rather unattractively utilitarian. The top-stitching is off-white and--in my mind--detracts from its overall appearance, but then this bag goes to the boardroom, not the ballroom. The outer materials are good quality and the suade is a deep chocolate ... yum. The one thing I truely do not like is the less-than-sturdy top zipper. I have a better one on my jeans. All in all, this provides a sufficiant bang for the buck and, if it is not overloaded, the top zipper should last. BIG CAUTION: Suade attracts fur! I have to hide my nice, new computer tote from my cats.
Really happy with the purchase. Bag is illustrated well from the pictures and the description of the size and capacity of the bag was very accurate. Better still was that it was delivered very quickly and in great packaging considering it was coming all the way to New Zealand!
