Great bag but not sturdy enough
on April 2, 2012
I've had this bag to carry my Asus RoG laptop for just under 1 year. I travel frequently, and have dragged this bag back and forth through the airport dozens of times.
I love the "checkpoint friendly" main compartment pocket. Also, there's two additional compartments with multiple dividers, pockets, sleeves, etc. and keeps all of my accessories organzied and accessible. As a bonus, there are two somewhat hidden, zippered pockets on the front, and a mesh pocket (for small water bottles, etc.) that can be tucked away on the side. It also comes with the "cell phone" pocket on the shoulder strap, which would be perfect if you still carry one of the small Nokias or whatever. Maybe a granola bar, or spare lighter.
The only problem with the bag is the stitching. It seemed pretty sturdy when I bought it, but it was only a few months until it started to develop a hole on the main compartment's zipper stitching (right where the corner of my laptop pressed against it). In a few short weeks time, the hole was big enough for my to put a finger through and now is big enough for my whole hand. In addition, the stitching came apart at on the shoulder straps where it comes together behind my neck.
I will, most likely, be purchasing another one of these to replace mine. The convenience at the airport and the stylish design is perfect for me, but someone who doesn't want to have to throw this away after a year and buy a new one might wanna keep looking.
