    Verified Purchase

    Just received this bag in the mail today, not happy! This bag is 18 inches, but what it doesn't tell you, is that isn't the actual size of the laptop sleeve. I have a 16" laptop...and it doesn't fit. My laptop is about an inch and a half too big for the protective sleeve of this bag. Minus the small laptop sleeve, I would definitely recommend this bag. It has all the pockets you need to store your school/work supplies. And it seems very sturdy and durable.

  • Nice But Misleading
    Verified Purchase

    From the description I gathered that this bag was for a 17" computer. When I received the bag there was no way my computer would fit! It's frustrating because I needed a bag and now I have to send this one back! Nice bag but BAD description!

  • Does not fit.
    Verified Purchase

    I needed a laptop case for my new 17" laptop. The padded section for the laptop does not fit a 17" laptop, it is at least 2" too small. The first case I received did not have a shoulder strap as indicated, but the second one did. Disappointed that the case does not fit my laptop, but I had to use it because I had to travel.
