    • Great messenger bag
      Verified Purchase

      This is possibly the best messenger bag I've found online. It is well stitched, sturdy canvas and has lots of pockets. Flap has zip exterior pocket, back has document pouch with velcro tab closure. Interior has large expandable zip compartment and separate open compartment. Interior organizer included a zip coin compartment, space for 3 pens/pencils, two small open compartments for phone or notepad, and a wider compartment suitable for a tablet with a velco flap closure. I expect this will hold up for a very long time. The only drawback is the spring-clips for the shoulder strap are not very durable, and can pop out leaving just the plastic hook.

    • Great for school.
      Verified Purchase

      Lots of room with the expandable pocket. The expandable pocket doesn't have a divider, but there is a smaller interior pocket. Lots of room for pens, cables and chargers. My son loves it. He carries a tablet for school along with his lunch and music. Lots of room and it keeps everything separate and safe.

      The cloth holds up good. The plastic clips for the straps brake. A quick fix is to replace them with aluminum climbing clips. Plastic gets better in the cold.

      This bag would be excellent if the straps would stay clasped. Imagine standing up on public transportation and your bag falls to the floor, the straps are un-done again. I would not recommend this product.

    • Poor Construction; Faulty Measurements
      Verified Purchase

      I use the bag to take my office papers as well as a small lunch bag to work. After about 2 months, I noticed that the threads on the shoulder strap at the hinges is starting to come apart so it's only a matter of time when I'll probably lose the straps altogether. Also, I noticed that the bag was listed wider than it truly is. Even with the expansion zipper at the bottom and sides in open position, it doesn't add up to the dimensions that the seller claims. I guess you get what you pay for. Spend a little more and get a bag that's more sturdy and more true to dimensions.

    • Best diaper bag EVER
      Verified Purchase

      I did not use this as a laptop bag. After being seriously disappointed with many overpriced diaper bags costing $50-$80, I bought this to use as my 8 month-old's daily diaper/daycare bag. Expanded, this has plenty of room for 2 crib sheets, a light and heavy blanket, 3 changes of clothes plus accessories (hat, shoes, bibs, burp clothes) and 3 days worth of diapers and diapering essentials (wipes, diaper cream etc). I recommend the bag whatever your need!

    • Good value and quality product
      Verified Purchase

      I bought this bag, not really expecting much for the price. When I received the bag, I was pleasantly surprised at the quality. It seems to be very good quality and has already suffered some hard use. It is not showing any signs of wear. The bag fits my laptop and reading materials with plenty of room. The only negative issue I have is that there is not a good place to put my computer accessories. The interior pockets are not the right size for my laptop power pack. I would still recommend this to anyone needing a good quality bag that is not very expensive.

    • Q:

      "I see the overall depth of this briefcase is 6 inches but what is the depth of the largest (main) compartment of this briefcase? I am hoping it is most if not all of the 6 inches (when expanded) because I am considering buying it to carry the following: medium Thermos, iPad, 1 magazine, 1 large paperback, 1 small tupperware container, 1 apple, 1 small zippered pouch (cables, A/C adpators), iPhone and a few more items. ( I can put some of these things in the separate pockets but still would like to know the depth of the main section."

      • A:

        Hello stevemass, The main compartment of this briefcase does take up the bulk of the six inches. Since this bag is soft-sided, it is capable of expanding more than the 6 inches, so you should have plenty of room for your things. I hope this information helps. Thanks for shopping with us!

    • Q:

      "Hi, how large is the main compartment? There is no picture and I am looking for a bag with one big compartment rather than several small ones. Also, does the back of the bag have a pocket large enough to fit a newspaper, as it appears in the picture?"

      • A:

        Hello michaelf84, we appreciate your inquiry. This briefcase’s (1) main compartment is about 15x11 1/4 inches. It has a pocket on its back that measures 9x15 inches. We hope you have found this information helpful. Thank you for shopping with us. Have great day!

    • Q:

      "Is there enough room for a computer, textbook, binder, and a charging cord?"
