I already own this in black and I leaped at the chance to buy a red one for at least $20 less than I'd paid for the black one. I have beautiful, expensive, leather purses, but this bag is almost all I use. It holds my small laptop and everything else I need to have with me, but never feels bulky or awkward, and it's comfortable to wear as a backpack. I've given this as a gift to other women who commute with their laptops, and they love it, too. It's nice to have a functional, lightweight backpack option.
