The material seems very durable and is of high quality.

It has a great secure, padded laptop section and enough additional pockets and pouches to hold everything else I needed including my phone.

This is a review for the 14 Inch Widescreen black color model.

First the good:

1. Relatively compact size in width and depth.
2. Zippers are sturdy and move smoothly without binding.
3. Two compartments. One for laptop and another for accessories, pencil/pen, and other related items.
4. Outer compartment has zip, but is configured as two pockets.
5. Back pocket for magazine/newspapers.
6. Strap is 1.5" wide and sturdy like a seat belt. It is attached with a metal hook and firmly cross-stitched on the other side. This is generally hard to find on more inexpensive bags.

Now the bad:

1. It is snug for a 13.3" thin laptop like a MacBook Pro and would be hard to squeeze in a standard 14" Dell or HP.
2. The pockets don't expand and the zipper does not go down the sides at all, the zipper ends a couple of inches from the top on both sides.
3. A 13.3" MacBook Pro in a sleeve is a bit snug, but will work; however, with accessories in the 2nd compartment, like the power adapter, a couple of short cables and papers makes this bag hard to use.
4. It is more ideal for a netbook or a 12" thin laptop.
5. There is no room for expansion.

Finally, this would have been the ideal bag, had it been been able to expand about an inch in width and depth. Perhaps the 16" version would be more appropriate for a 13" or 14" laptop.

Color Name: BlackSize Name: Messenger Case 16 Inch Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I just bought myself a new MacBook Pro (it hadn't even been delivered yet), and was looking for a carrying case when-- how convenient!-- this little baby by Targus just happened to appear. I thought "what the heck, I'll give it a try." I am thrilled that I did!

This is just about the most perfect laptop bag I've owned.

The bag is perfectly designed and built to an exceptionally high quality standard.

Here are the details:

The bag, when closed, is about 16 inches long, 12 inches high, and 4 inches deep. When closed, it looks like a little cubic rectangle, with very clean lines. It has one adjustable shoulder strap about three inches wide made out of the same stuff that a car seatbelt is-- very sturdy. What people may not appreciate about this-- but which I do-- is that because it is made of this seatbelt material (which is flexible, but not TOO flexible), the shoulder strap KEEPS ITS SHAPE and doesn't fold over on itself and thus bite into your shoulder. On the other hand, it is soft and flexible enough that it doesn't hurt, either--- you know, kind of like a seatbelt! It is just COMFORTABLE when you carry it. The shoulder strap is actually sewn to the body of the case in a large square pattern. What this means practically is that the cord doesn't flip upside down or get tangled. Everyone has had that one terrible bag that no matter how you carry it on your shoulder, the strap twists around, then the bag twists around, and everything is just so uncomfortable that you have to put all your effort into carrying the bag rather than anything else you might want to carry. Frustration! This bag doesn't do that! The strap is so well-designed that the bag sits on your shoulder and stays there very comfortably with no extra effort on your part.

This is a great bag. The magnetic closure gets the bag closed quickly, which is always a plus for me. My 13" Macbook Pro fits nicely inside of the bag and is well protected.

I had looked everywhere, locally, for a simple bag for my Dell XPS 14z. Any decent bags were $40 bucks on up. I wanted a messenger type bag with easy access and decent security. This bag fit the bill perfectly. It has a great secure, padded laptop section and enough additional pockets and pouches to hold everything else I needed including my phone. Finally, it was relatively small overall; compact and slim... just enough of the right stuff without being bulky. The great price was the deal maker... fully half the cost of the next best price for this bag. Thanks Amazon!

Color Name: BlackSize Name: Messenger Case 16 Inch Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I got this laptop bag for my Toshiba Satellite L505D-ES5025 laptop with a 15.6" screen. It fits very snugly into the zippered laptop compartment, which is very well-padded. I really like how well the compartment protects the laptop, but I just don't like having to stretch the opening to get the computer in there. The other zippered compartment has built in holders for pens and two compartments, possibly for a cell phone and an mp3 player. I put the computer cord and a notebook pad in that section and I think I would be hard-pressed to fit much more in there.

There is a weighted flap that folds over the zippered compartments but it does not snap shut. The shoulder strap to the bag is adjustable, so you can change that to a suitable length for yourself. Then there is an outside pouch that has no closure. Since I wanted quick access to my cell phone and keys, I put them inside this pouch. The outside features of the bag are where the quirks come to light.

There is no strap on top of the bag to carry it like a briefcase if desired. There is a little area where the nylon strap across the back is not sewn down so you can grab ahold of it there but I would definitely not call this a handle. I had set the bag on the floor of the passenger side of the car and it was really uncomfortable trying to reach over there to grab the bag without a true handle. I had to grab the shoulder strap and haul it up like that. And then as I finally got ahold of the bag and went to get out of the car, the bag shifted and dumped my keys and cell phone onto the garage floor. Definitely annoying.

These things won't keep me from using the bags but they are things I will be aware of the next time I use it. Bottom line is that it will keep your computer protected (provided it fits into the compartment), but it isn't very roomy or well-thought out.
