      I love this bag; it is jam-packed with features including easy-grab pockets and key-chain!

      The only down side that I've seen so far is that the straps are not as long as I would prefer. I'm 6' 6" and I prefer to wear my satchel bags lower, but these straps still fit me with the bag coming down comfortably at my side. So it will work!

      The flap cover does not extend all the way to the ends, which is nice for easy access inside your bag, but less secure for traveling abroad and getting caught out in the rain. The gap, however, is not bad enough that I think it will cause any problems at all.

      I can already tell the construction is solid, durable, and innovative, so I'm looking to forward to having this long-lasting bag!

      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.

              Perfect for my needs

              Pros

                Cons

                  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.

                    Cons

                        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.

                        from Huntington Beach, CA

                        Verified Buyer

                        Pros

                        • 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.
