I like the layout. LOVE the front zip pocket and the file/flex drop down.
Note the size, particularly if you are looking at it for travel - it won't fit into many of the small overhead compartments such as the CRJs. Also, If you put much into the included laptop back (like a laptop) it really bulges into the adjoining pockets both in front and back. (I don't use the back compartment for clothes, but rather books - (which have to be offset as it is not tailored to fit dual 8x11 for instance).
That having been said, I *love* the bag when I am on site - aka just going back and forth between the home/hotel and office. The included laptop back includes the dedicated mounting strap so it can easily ride on the main case as an add on piece eliminating any "under utilization" elements from trying to overload it. There are also no concerns with overhead in this situation.
Just don't try to over pack it and know you will be gate-checking it if space is any sort of an issue.
PS We got my wife the Potomac. The layout is a little different, the "wonder" pocket that I love so much is moved to the front and it eliminates the back "extra" compartment. It isn't that much thinner and she is still having problems with it in some overheads. It also lacks the dedicated strap on the side so you end up using the handles of the case itself.
Better quality than equivalent Targus products (which I previously used for my 17" laptop, until the pull handle failed after a couple of years).
One note of caution though ... make sure your 17" Laptop has been on the Atkins or South Beach diet if you plan to carry your laptop in the internal case. A Dell Latitude Inspiron XPS Gen 2 does not fit in the inner case at all. It is apparently designed for more modern and thinner 17" laptops.
For example, on my last six-day trip to Europe, I carried a week's worth of clothing plus two pairs of shoes in the clothing compartment (you need to pick your clothing well and roll them up), my laptop, its cords and mouse, travel guides, food and bottled water, personal items, and a toiletry bag, as well as a bunch of other items (like a first aid kit), and was able to save my other practically-empty, carry-on for souvenirs! What continues to amaze me is its durability...in spite of the treatment this bag has taken, it still looks, and functions, like new! I love this bag!

Pull up handle is a little wobbly. In airplanes the bag is a little too thick if full. I'd rather buy a bag that is half an inch thinner, but 2 inch higher (when standing upright).Published 5 months ago by Amazon Customer
