Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I am absolutely in love with this computer bag! I'm suprised to say this because for a long time I went through various computer bags, always issued by my employer. I always found them cumbersome and bulky so eventually I'd ditch them and stash my latop in a totebag instead, but this is one bag I could see myself using until it wears out!
Overall, it's a good sized bag that holds quite a few items, but is not so big that it is bulky or unmanageable. It has a special laptop compartment that is TSA compatible (so you won't have to remove your laptop from the bag) and is also well padded. I LOVE this feature because it has made going through security a breeze.
In addition, it also has a very roomy main pocket. I've sometimes stashed a second laptop in there as well as a good sized binder and both have fit comfortably. It also has several smaller pockets including a padded one that fits my iPhone perfectly (even with a thick plastic case on). I especially love that this pocket has a velcro strap on it to keep my phone in place. After having had my phone slide out of my bag several times while on a plane I appreciate knowing that it is always secure.
The only thing I dislike is the pass-through luggage sleeve on the outside. Not only do I never use it, but when I first got the bag I made the mistake of thinking it was a pocket so I could have easily lost something.
Overall though this is a fantastic bag. I love that it has room for everything I need when I travel, but at the same time doesn't weigh me down too much. And since I am a petite woman (5'2") that's saying a lot. I especially appreciate its durability. One time when I was toting the bag I tripped and fell and yet, although I scraped my hand and had a whole in my pants, all of the stuff in my bag (laptop included) were perfect without a single scratch. The bag itself also showed no wear from the fall.
