i travel a great deal for work and this bag ahs stood the test of time. I will buy this again when it does give out but I expect that will be no time soon.
I bought this bag about five years ago from another place & Over time I wanted to replace it. I found it on Overstock.com & I am so happy, I love this bag carries a lot of things and many compartments.
I just took this on a trip for the first time as my airplane carry on. I put heavy stuff in there and it handled the load very well with no signs of strain on stitching or excess wear on any point. I didn’t use it for a laptop. I only put my iPad mini in the outer zippered container along with my boarding pass. Dry toiletry bag, liquids bag, hair paraphernalia and an extra pair of foldable flats plus reading material all fit in there nicely in the various compartments. It’s a bit shinier than I expected and also a bit smaller than I antipated, but I’m quite happy with the purchase.
The bag is as lovely as the picture and very well made. I have very stringent requirements for a bag--interior sleeves for pens and cell phone, a separate section for a wallet (in this bag, there is a a divided section plus a flat, zippered pocket), a large interior space for files and laptop, and, for security reasons, the whole thing needs to zips shut. And a handle drop of at least 11 inches (this one is 11.75) so you can get the darn thing on your shoulder, even with a coat, with one hand. (What is it with all these large bags and totes that have such short, dysfunctional handle drops?) Bingo with this bag. The only box this one didn't tick is exterior pockets for either a coffee/water bottle and glasses. But that would have definitely ruined the look of the design, and it's definitely an attractive looking bag. Would definitely purchase again, even without the exterior pockets. Some notes: (1) This is a structured bag, and that took a small amount of time to get used to (I was used to more flexibility and feeling free to toss a bag onto the passenger seat of my car). (2) the length of the interior space is a good 16 inches, and so it can squeeze in a laptop up to that dimension.
