The only reason it didn't get a 5 star rating was that I hoped it was easily removable and not attached with a tape backing. My mistake, but I thought it was like one of those FatHead designs. :0(
The case has many good features - Expandable side pocket, fairly solid construction. But since the telescoping handle is inside the case it takes up some of the room. One thing I don't like is inside the brief, the expandable file folder setup is held by two velcro straps that take up space and catch on the books or folders you try to slide in. Also, the telescoping handle is a bit wobbly. Gives you the feeling that they will snap off... they won't of course but feels that way. Also, the smokey metal hinges show scratches easily. The two end pockets are handy and roomy and the overall case is sturdy. Actually, the whole bag is pretty roomy. One little thing as far as the top flaps/handle. The overlapping flap does not come over the handle. It is cut out around the handle. So, to pick up the case you must clip at least one of the locks. I give it a 3.5 Stars overall. Overstocks shipping and service were very good.
Delivery was quite prompt; however, the package was rather damaged and the metal strips at the bottom and top of the wall calendar were bent, and the calendar itself was creased and wrinkled. Since it is for home use on a wall that no one ever sees, I am keeping it to use. Just hope that next year a more substantial mailing package is utilized, i.e., a sturdier mailing tube.
This has been my race planner for several years. Easy to read from my desk and the blocks allow plenty of room for notations. I use a highlighter across the numerals at top of the boxes to denote days off work/vacations and circle the paydays. Holidays are highlighted a different color. I found Overstock.com carries them at the lowest price and the service is great!
