Practical and professional
Reviewed in the United States on November 6, 2017
A surprisingly wonderful upgrade from my old favorite bag. I had a similar bag made of faux leather (fake leather, "pleather") that was peeling and falling apart all over. It was the most practical work bag I ever had, but it was time for me to retire it. I kept using it while searched for a new bag for about a year, and finally found this one. I was hesitant since my last bag was such a great fit, but the price of this one was worth the risk. The sturdy fabric of this bag was a definite selling point because the peeling pleather of my old bag is what really did it in. This bag has enough compartments to suit my needs (somewhat of a portable office) and looks profession and not bulky even when full. I do wish it had a small, deep pocket for a water bottle, but it will do. My primary need is for a professional looking bag that can hold all of my work and supplies, and this is it.
UPDATE: I've been using this every day for work for the past four months, and it's still holding up. Fabric still looks good as new and no signs of stress on the seams despite stuffing it with about 15 pounds of paperwork, supplies, and my laptop every day.
