Plaid is not purple, but it is still a good bag.
on December 2, 2014
I ordered the plaid bag on Amazon and based upon the picture I thought the bag was going to be purple. When I opened the box, I thought they sent the wrong bag. It was plaid but in black, gray, and brown stripping. So the first thing I did was go back to the Amazon listing and zoomed into the picture detail. When you zoom, the bag does look more black, gray, and brown. I guess as the picture shrinks, it plays tricks with the eyes. Purple would have been nice, but since I got a deal on the bag, I am not sending it back just for the color.
Some things I like about the bag to make note of:
There are three lifting handles - top, side, and end. They are all well padded.
There is an unseen zippered compartment on the top opening. The zipper is hidden under the decorative curved trim on the top.
The bag has four clasps that help to keep the main compartment closed. I have read horror stories of people's bags coming back empty after a zipper failure. With these clasps, even if the zipper fails, the bag will still stay mostly closed.
