This bag has been a LIFESAVER! I work in NYC which means a lot of commuting every day. Lugging my laptop around in an oversized purse wasn't cutting it and because I work in fashion I felt it was imperative to try and find something that was trendy but ultimately functional. Because of an old spine injury, I can't really use messenger bags as they don't evenly distribute the weight so this bag is really just an amazing find because it gives me the option of carrying my laptop on my back but still giving me a professional and fashionable edge instead of having to use a bookbag. It's durable and lightweight and has the perfect compartments to fit everything I need.
Love, love this bag! Exceeded my expectations for such an economical bag! I'm adding more pictures today to show what it's capable of holding to help answer a question that I received yesterday. You will NOT be disappointed. It's a beautiful bag that is very feminine, unique, looks professional and I use it everyday for work. The long shoulder strap is very sturdy and comes in very handy when you're carrying other things.
I've grown to love it. This bag is great! It's sturdy and roomy with plenty of pockets, and the locking clasps on the front are strong and hidden from view by the strap ends. I get compliments on this constantly! Yesterday, I managed to cram my laptop, a stack of papers, a small folder, a 600 pg book, a box of wheat thins, as well as pens, my wallet, my phone, and my lipgloss. It really does hold a ton, and it doesn't look like it at all. I will probably end up getting a strap cushion at some point though, because with all that in there, it gets extremely heavy on the shoulders.
Excellent quality, I bought mine several months ago and am not easy on it. I carry it daily to work, and carries a pretty heavy load for me (laptop, wallet, notebooks, computer accessories, files, phone, phone accessories, etc) - lots of room, and no signs of breakdown. I receive complements on this bag frequently!
I love this bag! I was looking for a professional laptop bag for a business trip I was taking and this one was great. Pockets inside hold my business cards and pens, a large padded pocket held my (rather thick) 15" laptop, an extra pocket in front for files all contained by a zipper. There is even an exterior pocket - covered by the flap - for easy access to my phone, gum, etc. without having to unzip the large area.
