It was funny how I got my bag after 1 day of my purchase. But I do love the bag. I read all the reviews before deciding to purchase the bag, and I appreciate everyone who did write a good descriptive review. Thank you :D (So as thanks, I am going to write a descriptive review myself ^^)
The front design isn't as plastic-like, like some people mentioned. It is actually pretty nice and not as bright and flashy. I'm happy I actually chose this over another design. I'm in college and I probably act more like a kid than anybody else I know, so I say that the bag suits me just fine, and its not overwhelming that I couldn't bring the bag to something professional or to a college atmosphere environment.
I have a 15.6" Asus Laptop and its pretty big. Like the other reviews, the laptop will fit in the compartment next to the padded compartment for the laptop. Its a little bit of a tight fit in that compartment but its not that bad. Maybe if I try wriggling my laptop in the padded compartment, it might fit, but I would have to play around with it to make sure I don't rip the bag XD.
If you have a smaller laptop than a 15.6", you'd probably be able to fit your laptop in the padded compartment, so go for it :D
I tend to carry a lot of stuff and take about two bags to school, but I think this bag could probably fit my laptop accessories and some small school supplies in it.
I am kind of short (around 5' 3"), so the strap fits just right for my size, but I like to carry my bag low so I had to extend the strap. It does use velcro. My old messenger bag had velcro and buttons for a stronger support, so hopefully this bag is just as strong. The velcro does show if you make the strap longer, but you could just buy some velcro and cloth and make a cool design and stick to the velcro so it doesn't expose it. It gives your bag a little personal touch and you won't have the velcro showing either.
I kind of wish they made cool messenger bags for bigger laptops, but this bag is really good for 15.4" laptops or smaller if you just like the bags. And again 15.6" laptops will fit in the compartment that wasn't meant for the laptop, but it still works.
Overall, I like the bag and will try breaking it in and see how it treats me in the long run, maybe I'll customize it over time to add more room for my stuff =3
