        A Good Bag for Small Loads

        By Art W

        from Oriental, Sailing Capital of NC

        Verified Buyer

        Pros

        • Good For Smaller Loads
        • very attractive

        Cons

        • Handle Is Not Centered

        Best Uses

          I purchased this bag based on many positive comments about using it as a laptop bag. I found that it works well as a shoulder bag, but when you carry a full load with a laptop and a book (admittedly items that are becoming scarcer) the offset handle makes carrying the bag awkward. After consulting with Customer Service, I determined that they offer a different bad that will meet my needs. This one goes back and I will be purchasing a new Bootstrapper Briefcase from Duluth Trading.

          Somewhat disappointing

          By Steve

          from Kalamazoo, MI

          Pros

          • Attractive
          • Lots of pockets

          Cons

          • Lacks rigidity
          • Overpriced
          • several design flaws
          • Very floppy

          Best Uses

          • Carrying Gear To Work

          I got this as a gift after requesting it to replace my old messenger bag. I knew it was not very rigid having read other reviews, and that certainly is the case, it is far less rigid than the photos make it appear. In no way does this stand up like the photos show. I will look for some kind of light stiffening material to make this less floppy and sloppy. Also, the handle is badly placed, it should be an inch or so more to the front. Third, there is no zipper to close the inner compartment and protect it from rain as my old bag has. Fourth, the front flap should be an inch or so wider on each side to cover the inner compartment adequately. It is attractive and all the various pockets are very nice, but its functionality and usefulness is diminished by the design flaws listed above. I hope DTC will redesign this soon.

                    Best Uses

                      After many years of using my Duluth Briefcase to haul my heavy laptop and necessary junk around, I downsized to this bag. The weight differential was tremendous. It also rides on my body without banging my back all day long.

                      Great bag with exception of the lack of rigidity. Holds my iPad and books with ease. Fairly stain resistant as well.

                          I have to carry around my laptop and/or my tablet plus some binders and it all fits with plenty of room left over for my very small pocketbook.

                          Tough, but not as rigid as we'd expected

                          • Nice Slots For Organizing
                          • Tough material

                          Cons

                          • Flexible Construction

                          Best Uses

                          • Transporting Class Papers

                          I gave this to my husband as a gift after he had seen this in the catalog. It likely came as described, but he was expecting it to be a little more rigid so it would stand up on its own. We're keeping it since it's a good value and he can adapt to its construction.

                          • Durable
                          • Flexible
                          • Roomy

                          Cons

                            Best Uses

                              I use this bag as my main bag for work. I work as a teacher and have to constantly carry around student work and multiple computers. This bag has met all of my expectations and more. There are numerous pockets and all are easily accessible. The inside of the bag is roomy and can hold multiple things, all divided by several pockets on the inside. The zippers are all solid and have never had a problem with them. The only thing I can knock this bag on is the fabric tends to attract all sorts of dirt, hair, etc.
