I didn't have much money to spend, so I didn't have a lot of choices, but I needed the wheels and the ability to hold a 15" screen laptop. I appreciated the accuracy of the description on this item and the choice of red or black (went with black). I only have 2 complaints thus far: 1) when using the backpack straps, the wheels can be a bit hard on the lower back, and 2) the main compartment is actually TOO SPACIOUS. It might have been better with two compartments instead of one huge one. There will probably be times when I love this "problem," though. The front organizer pocket is quite useful and bigger than others I have had. The tiny pocket on top front that I believe is for a CD or MP3 player is working well for my camera as well. I like that the rolling handle and backpack straps can be stored away when not in use, and the hand-hold on top is nicely cushioned . I haven't used the water bottle side pockets, but I am still fascinated by having two of them.
How many people can say they have purchased a backpack that has a lifetime warranty? This bag is very sturdy and yet very stylish. I was looking for a stylish backpack that I could tote thru the airport terminal with plenty of pockets to put gadgets like cell phones, a secret compartment for a wallet, bottle water, and etc. It has a waist strap that is a must sometimes for big city travel or when you are riding your bike with your bag. I love the vibrant red color and the beautiful industrial zipper detail. I plan to use this backpack for travel, "light book load" classes, and the gym.
I am so glad I purchased this bag for our upcoming trip to Hawaii. Perfect bag to use as a carry on for our iPads, snacks and etc.! It is very well made from sturdy thick leather and is elegant in appearance. You won't be disappointed in this choice if you so choose to purchase this satchel /backpack!
