That being said, it's a great bag for me. I was torn between this bag and a slightly bigger bag (although much more casual). I needed a messenger bag that could also bring my laptop (not everyday, just every now and then). This is able to fit my 15.4 inch HP laptop with a few hairs to spare. I like all the compartments and the fact it's expandable. It looks sleek and has ballistic nylon to help with wear.
The only few cons I have noticed are few. The biggest thing that was almost keeping me away was the lack of the flap covering the top. That means this bag has very little rain protection to the main compartment so please be aware if you get caught out in the rain. The strap is nice if you don't load the bag up but there is no padded strap, it's just a regular thick strap. The "standard" limited warranty applies (I miss the days of the old warranty almost everything).
Overall it's a sleek bag that will perform for years and will look good in any setting. It won't perk anyone's eyes unless they know.
However, if I order it online from Tumi or if I go back to the store I saw it in, I can get it monogramed - there is already a spot for it on the bag in the picture, so I would assume that it would look a bit weird if its just left blank. I added this item to my amazon cart, but I was never prompted to enter a monogram, nor could I find an option anywhere to select. Just thought buyers should know that its a FREE option to get it monogramed at the store or on Tumi's website, and the bag is listed as the same price as these other places.
Someone did comment that there isn't a flap protecting the main compartment from rain. This is indeed true, although the flap covering the two outer compartments that could be flipped over temporarily for this purpose.
I also like the look.
