COMMENTS:

I purchased this bag to replace my old one that I used everyday to and from work, travel etc. I became disappointed with first use. It's wonderful that it has the padding for a laptop, unfortunately the padding is not removable, and causes the bag to lean decidedly, not allowing it to sit upright when not carrying a laptop - and creates extra bulk.

The even bigger flaw is that the large outer pocket on the back of the bag has a zipper at the top (which of course is great!) AND a zipper along the bottom of the pocket - which comes unzipped causing items to fall out and get lost if you're not aware that anything fell out!! I purchased the burgundy, which is beautiful though the canvas is thinner than expected. This size is perfect but, I would like to return this bag.

COMMENTS:

I purchased this bag one year ago. I have used it off and on since, mostly on. It is bulky and big but I like big bags. I keep returning to it because I love all the pockets. I'm the type that carries everything just in case and this is perfect for that. But I keep going back to the big and bulky aspect. Just too big for every day carry, even for me. If I had files or other work related things to carry everyday then this would be perfect.
The quality is unreal. Not one stitch has broken. And that is saying a lot since my bags are heavy. The oil cloth is amazing. It has aged some and looks even better.
I just ordered the large lifetime leather tote with the cross body strap. I know, I know, another big bag. This one will be a few inches smaller in each direction. I will still use my oil cloth bag for traveling. I thought for 2 seconds about selling it, but then quickly dismissed it. It's a nice bag and I'm keeping it.

    I like a bag that is versatile and durable. This one fits the bill. It has plenty of room to carry what I need for work. I often forget me myself buying different bags that I think I will use but end up deciding they are just. It right. I don't think that is going to be the case with this bag.

      COMMENTS:

      The search is over! I have been searching for a functional, flexible, and lightweight bag to carry when traveling on business AND for my daily commute. This is that bag!! On my first trip with it I got caught in a rain storm and it kept the contents totally dry except for the gap where I forgot to zip tight and that was only a drop of dampness after being out in a downpour walking in downtown Chicago!! Now I make sure the zippers are to the side so no issues and it was my carelessness about checking it after grabbing my umbrella. I was also thrilled at how fast the bag dried off! I have found my long term solution after numerous failed attempts with other brands!! Highly recommended!!

        COMMENTS:

        I purchased this tote to use as my personal item on an overseas flight. It has plenty of room for my travel blanket, inflatable neck pillow, extra jacket, Kindle, journal, toiletries and much more. I chose the Smoky Blue and the color is awesome. I couldn't be happier. A couple of suggestions: The addition of an interior clear business card sized ID slot would be great along with the addition of one or two interior D-rings for attaching keys and in my case, a flashlight. I never travel without one. Also a way to secure the bottom zipper on the outer compartment on the back side of the tote would be great for those times when the compartment is being used for personal items. This is a great tote and I love it!
