Solid Compact Carrying Bag,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Samsonite Leather Checkpoint Friendly Brief (Black) (Apparel)
This bag works great for what I needed: A nice looking, compact shoulder bag to carry my laptop and a binder of documents, along with pens, & accessories. I can even fit the tupperware container with my lunch in it, although it is a tight fit. I haven't had any problems with the construction quality of this item, and am happy with how it looks.
The only drawback I could see is if someone were looking for something with a little more room bulk-wise. Basically, the bag is designed for fairly thin things to be put into it, so if you have an object that is wider than 3 inches, it's not going to fit very well, and will affect any of the other things you have in the bag.
A nice byproduct of this bag's design is that the handles for the bag are designed to curl inward toward each other. That way, you don't have to fumble to get both handles together if your other hand is occupied already in order to pick the bag up. Another nice advantage of this feature is that it's great for holding a coffee thermos/sealed cup while the bag is on your shoulder. The handles curl in nicely to secure the container, cradling it and freeing up your other hand for whatever else you need to carry.
