I really like the look of this bag and it feels sturdy. I have had this bag for two months and it still looks good. I bought it to carry folders, notebooks, small books, and my ereader around. It does this pretty well. The back pocket is perfect for my ereader because it is lined with soft fabric that is different than the rest of the bag. The only issue that I am having is closing it when I have folders in it. The makers of the bag gave the flap no extra room. Without anything in the bag, the flap does not even reach the edge of the Velcro. So when I put folders in it, the folders are ½" too tall and I can barely get the flap to reach the Velcro. This has cause the Velcro to catch on stitching but it is not a huge deal. If it were a perfect bag for me, the flap would be 1" longer. But this really is a nice bag. It looks nice and great if I do not stuff it too full. If you are looking for a bag to carry a lot of stuff of different shapes and sizes, this is not it. Anything the size and shape of a notebook or smaller works the best.

I just received this awesome little bag today and I could not be more pleased. It is a great size, the strap is very comfortable, and the material seems very durable. Zappos' customer service was great when I had questions about the bag and free next day shipping is unbeatable. Now all I need is a tablet for that nice fleece lined sleeve and I am set.

I bought this bag in carbon, and it appeared well made and very pleasing to the eye. Unfortunately, it could not hold sheets of paper or a clipboard despite the listed dimensions. This is because (1) the large compartment is split into two sections of nearly equal size, with the slightly smaller one apparently for a tablet or e-reader, and (2) the top flap is designed so the full width of the bag is not usable at the opening. I had to send this bag back since I need to carry 8.5x11 papers, but this would be perfect for transporting a tablet. It's a shame it wasn't designed with analog uses in mind.
