The case has many good features - Expandable side pocket, fairly solid construction. But since the telescoping handle is inside the case it takes up some of the room. One thing I don't like is inside the brief, the expandable file folder setup is held by two velcro straps that take up space and catch on the books or folders you try to slide in. Also, the telescoping handle is a bit wobbly. Gives you the feeling that they will snap off... they won't of course but feels that way. Also, the smokey metal hinges show scratches easily. The two end pockets are handy and roomy and the overall case is sturdy. Actually, the whole bag is pretty roomy. One little thing as far as the top flaps/handle. The overlapping flap does not come over the handle. It is cut out around the handle. So, to pick up the case you must clip at least one of the locks. I give it a 3.5 Stars overall. Overstocks shipping and service were very good.
this is one the nicest computer bags i have seen. i hope my brother in law will like it!!! he wanted a more expensive one that was one hundred dollars more, but i did not want to get him that one!!! i think this one looked better because it looks more sturdy than the one he wanted which looked like regular bag with wheels!!!
