This holds a LOT of stuff in a light little bag
on February 16, 2011
I bought this to carry stuff to school. I wanted something light, and still looks semi-professional. (Leather bags are too heavy with all the stuff I have to lug around and since I sometimes have to wear a suit to school.)
This bag is light and not too wide, which worked for me. I find if my bag is too wide I have to be really careful not to bump into people with my bag on the subway. This bag is wide enough to fit a binder or two, and will fit my netbook (if you have a huge laptop, you will need a bigger bag - and no padding for laptops by the way, I have a sleeve for my netbook). The bag will double in depth with the side zipper and that lets me carry quite a bit of stuff. I can fit one 1 inch binder, one 1 1/2 inch textbook, one notebook, netbook, cords for the netbook, and a tumbler for my coffee all in this bag.
Of course, if you are going to be carrying as much stuff as I will, I recommend that you by the shoulder strap pad with the bag. It really does make a difference!
As for the color, I bought grey, which I thought would be darker in person, but the picture here is pretty true to color. Would have liked it to be a little darker, but it works for me.
Oh and one comment about the design, I wish it had a handle on the bag so I could carry it with my hand sometimes, but the shoulder strap is the only way to carry this bag.
