    Ok if you don't carry much

    Two problems with this. One minor, the other major (for me). The outer flap keeps itself fastened via magnets. If the bag is very full, or has cumbersome objects in it, the flap will not close properly. The biggest problem is the material used to attach the metal strap loops to bag, is some type of simulated leather, and when it rubs against the strap loop, it makes an odd noise. So if you are carrying the bag, it makes a loud creaking noise. I gave it a couple of weeks, thinking it would break-in... No joy. It is audible in busy places like an airport, but in a library it would distract others. No thanks!

    When you invest in a laptop, you need to make sure it is properly protected when traveling. The Messenger Bag certainly does that! While the laptop fits snugly in a sleeve, there are pockets and sections to organize your mouse, power cords, USB drives, etc. There is even an outside pocket I found handy to put a file folder for quick access when traveling. Very happy I chose this bag.

    Looks Nice, Non-Functional

    The design looks attractive and of high quality, however the bag isn’t functional. 1) No carry options i.e. a handle, but only a shoulder strap. 2) The main pouch for a laptop can only accommodate a laptop. Even with two sections, anything more would render the magnetic pouch unable to close.

    Was looking for an affordable & low-key messenger bag for school. Needed to carry a laptop (supports up to 15"), a notebook, a pencil & eraser, a calculator, an iClicker, my keys, my phone & its earbuds. Carries all of that comfortably, with plenty of room for more. The magnetic flap works great (not too strong, not too weak) and I really like the colors.

    I needed a very light laptop case with pockets for odds and ends and some papers. This laptop is perfect for me. It's almost like carrying nothing and for its size it has a lot of pockets of all different sizes that makes it easy to store anything. If you don't have anything bulky to store in a laptop case, this is an excellent choice.

    To be fair, there are a LOT of shoulder bags out there and the choices are many, but this bag has the good looks, simplicity and durability needed to do the job. Easy to adjust to height, holds plenty of material, and fits under the seat on airplanes eliminating the need for a carry on. Hope this helps your decision!

    As far as computer bags go I have no complaints in regards to the one I purchased, it looks just like the images on the ads so there were no surprises there. I've only had it for a few weeks and I still love it, I'm 6'5 and do wish the shoulder strap was slightly longer.

    This bag is really nice. It is durable, and main storage area closes with a magnetic flap, so it's convenient. Spacious, but not too big to carry at all. My only complaint about this bag is that the hardware where the shoulder strap attaches squeaks when you walk.

    I was searching a bag that was able to carry a computer and some notes for work and this bag was it. I liked it very much. I would give it 5 stars except for the fact that the upper part is a magnetic closed and its magnetic force is not that strong, making it stay opened sometimes.

    This is a nice looking messenger bag with several storage pockets. The bag doesn’t allow much room for necessary items like a power adapter and it can only be carried with the shoulder strap. I find it difficult to pick up when reach for it in the car or office.

    This bag was poorly designed. It's a bit on the flimsy side as the magnets do not hold it together at times. There is no handle to carry it with your hand and it must be slung over your shoulder. Not enough room inside to carry anything other than laptop. Power cord barely fits.

    This bag is good for a 15” laptop. Provides good protection and has a convenient magnetic flap enclosure. My only small gripe is that it has a shoulder strap, but no handle for easier lifting in or out of the car.

    This bag is very strong and sturdy. It holds my laptop with ease, and could hold a bigger one if needed. There are a lot of different pockets, to store accessories or paperwork. It is unisex and anyone can wear it.

    At age 75, I finally decided to buy an Apple Laptop. I chose this Messenger Bag because it offered lots of pockets and space to carry all of the necessary "gadgets" needed for the laptop. Lost of space...without weighing a ton!

    A nice messenger bag, well constructed and designed. However, the streamlined, narrow design doesn’t work for me. I would recommend it for a guy who desn’t carry around bulky items. Very well made and designed other wise

    This laptop case is ideal because of the very easy and quick access to all areas. It has space for all items that one might need along with a laptop. The magnetic closures without requiring zippers are ideal and fumble proof. So happy with this purchase.

    I purchased this messenger bag to go with a 2 in 1 I bought together. I can fit my laptop and also documents that I need to carry. It is made of high quality materials and so far looks durable.

    My wife says it has more pockets than her favorite LowePro camera bags, and that's saying something! She loves being able to pit on the handle of her roller bag and it holds a ton of stuff for business trips. I look like a hero!

    As a college student I'm always looking for a good bag that I can take to school and coffee shop. This bag is nice, comfortable strap, holds my MacBook Air, textbook & planner while still being slim and not bulky.
