Good but small - correction on size,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Military Cotton Canvas Ammo Shoulder Messenger Bag (Apparel)
The bag is 9.5 x 8 x 4 (measure the panels). When flat the bag might be 11 x 9 x 4, but not with stuff in it. If the bag were the size advertised, a piece of 11 x 8.5 paper would fit in without folding - but it can't be done. With that out of the way...
I've been looking to downsize what I carry. The latest laptop bag I have is big and bulky. I now have an IPad which is far less bulky than the laptop I had, and the bag I used was cumbersome. Although this bag is a little smaller than I thought it would be, the IPad fits in along with the notebook I carry. I have gotten rid of a lot of extra things that I carried in my laptop bag (only because it had the extra room).
This bag is pretty rugged - I haven't seen any of the flaws that others have written about. The front pockets store small things - I haven't had a problem with the velcro opening on me, but the pockets are small and care has to be taken when putting stuff in. The only add-on I would have liked to see would have been a small zippered pocket on the inside.
I will be using the bag regularly, only using the larger bag for times when I need to carry files around. It is a good product for the price - just be aware of the true size.
