    Lightweight and Easy to carry

    I was a bit skeptical of this Laptop bag, when I purchased it, the pictures do not, say enough about it, Upon opening the product at home I found Really neat, and Awesome features that were not included in the summary for the item. Like there is more then 1 pocket. there is 3, There is an insert for holding many things, within the main pocket, aside from the laptop pocket. We did try the waterproof rating out. Not with a workable laptop, but an old one. when spilling liquid on the case, it did not enter the bag, The Zipper got wet, and became moist on the inside of the zipper only. We Spilled coffee (Hot) on it, did not effect the case, Made it smell like coffee tho. Washed it with cold water in the sink, and it took the smell right off. We submerged the case for 30 seconds in a Sink. of Cold water first. Again the zipper was moist on the inside, but the bag was not wet on the inside. we tried warm water. This actually got the inside of the bag damp. The water was 120 degrees and steaming, The steam pernitrated the bag. Making it moist. had to wipe condensation off the laptop. Lastly Took it to a pool, and dropped it in. then jumped in to save it, took 1 minute 11 sec. The laptop was wet. and it would have fried an actual working laptop. It is water wicking and resistant to Spills, and a heavy rain or coffee, But If you swim a lot, I would not recommend taking it to the pool with you. However in the rain, if you dropped it in the gutter or rushing water for a few seconds you should be fine. and if you put it on the top of the car and it downpoured, for 30 sec you should be fine. I was amazed by the quality of the bag. I read a few reviews about the Shoulder strap and clips. After using it since i bought it, daily. Being transported between home and work. and school, I see no Wear on the strap or the clips. Perhaps they had it at the wrong Setting for carrying. You have to understand how to adjust your straps for both comfort and portability. The case itself should be able to sit in the palm of your hand on the arm you carry it on, you should be able to firmly grip it. if it is lower or higher then this point you risk excess damage to the Strap and the clips. Also do not toss your bad in the back of your car or trunk. it is not a shockproof case. it is a regular water wicking case. For up to 16" Laptop. The reason you have the strap fit your palm is so when you enter the car, you can hold the bottom of the case and gently take it off your shoulder and place it in the passenger seat. or back of the car or trunk. Love this bag. !

    Solid and Handy Slipcase

    The bag is well made for slim and light laptops and a few small relative items, some documents, and that's just about it. You won't be able to load up things like a college textbook. My iMac Pro charger slipped in, however, the case will bulk up with additional boxy assessories. There little pockets you can easily access from the side with double zippers. The larger pocket could have been a little deeper with a closing lid. The slipcase has some cushion siding with well-stiched construction, attractive design and a leather-like waterproof bottom. It's a good choice if you want to travel light to the library or office for the price.

    I wanted a compact bag to carry my 2017 15" MacBook Pro inside the Incase ICON sleeve with tanserlite (it has anti shock material on the sides so it adds to the L & D). This bag carried that with my iPad perfectly. the small outer compartment fit the basic essentials. Overall its a great compact bad of pretty good quality. However, the gutter bag was too small to carry an eyeglass case. I don't usually carry a bunch of extras, but I do sometimes. As such, this is not a good primary bag. It's a good minimal bag though. Another thing I did not like is that the strap attachments on the bag and the strap are made of plastic, so when those break the bag is garbage.

    I use this bag to transport my laptop to and from work every day. It's the perfect size to fit my laptop snugly, but not too tight. Leaves enough extra space to carry charge cable and wireless mouse with ease. Keep it light. You're good to go. Most messenger-style bags I've found only have the long strap with no option to carry it like a brief case. The convenient handles are a life-saver. Very sturdy. It could stand to have a little more pocket space, but if the front pocket got any bigger, it would completely change the shape of the bag. Good for the essentials and still looks sleek.

    I was looking for a case for my new 15" Macbook Pro. I wanted it to be light, yet durable and low maintenance. This case offers an exterior side pocket with zipper, great to store securely all the accessories such as cables, chargers etc... The inside had another side pocket to put small things separate from the actual laptop. The case is slim, yet can fit everything needed for the laptop. Great for travelling!

    Nice laptop briefcase

    I bought this briefcase to put my laptop in. When it first arrived I though it would be too small as my laptop has a 15 inch screen. However, its nicely designed and is just the right size to allow the laptop to fit without being too bulky or voluminous. The front pockets also allow my AC adapter to fit and the cushioned strap makes this a nice, light-weight and waterproof carrying case for my laptop.

    I have had my new bag for 6 weeks, and it is pretty much what I wanted. It is lighter than my former laptop bag. It has well-thought out pockets including an organizer pocket for pens. A strap with Velcro on the back allows it to be placed over a suitcase extended handle for easier carrying through an airport. It fits into my carry on. Only drawback is the shoulder strap. The strap seemed able to stay on my shoulder, but it doesn't with a jacket. Needs more traction since it falls off with a surprise.

    I chose this to tote my 2 in 1 notebook computer along with its accessories (e.g. power cord, mouse, USB-c adapter, ethernet cable, AC extension cord, etc.). The front pouch with its pocket dividers works nicely to hold and organize all this. The quality seems to be the same high quality that I've come to know with Targus products (I have a Targus laptop backpack that is many years old).

    I bought another previously it turned out to be more than I needed. I bought this because I was going out of town and needed it to work. This laptop bag is just right, when all you need is your laptop, mouse, charger and a few other items. My 16 laptop fits well and there is padding on both sides. It looks good and appears to be good quality.

    This laptop case is very nice looking and slim, but don't let the slim look fool you, it holds a lot of stuff if needed. I used it on a flight recently and was able to put not only my laptop, mouse & cord in it, I also had a book about 2" thick, my 311 bag, and some other personals I didn't want in my carry on bag. It's a sturdy bag and comes with a nice shoulder strap as well.

    It holds all necessary laptop accessories without feeling too tight for space: power cord, external disc drive, and mouse in exterior pocket. I use it for a 15.5" laptop. There's a thin, interior divider to stick some file folders in main compartment as well. It has 2 way zippers (I found some bags do not) which makes getting in/out of case easier.

    Not for a huge load, but perfect for up to 14 inch device or 2 smaller devices or folders in main compartment if necessary. Roomy front compartment for mouse and other flatter objects, cell, small tabletpens, etc. not a camera bag. Rubber like bottom for weather resist

    It is easy on the back and has dividers for carrying other items. It is not quite big enough The section for the laptop is great, but the bag does have problems supporting a surge protector, cord for the laptop, mouse, and other computer items. It is better for carrying pens, pencils, and business cards in this paper-light society.

    I purchased this bag to store and transport my new laptop. The bag is perfect, lots of padding, carrying handle, and shoulder strap. I really like that there is an extra zippered area for additional storage of business cards, wireless mouse, and my flash drive. I would recommend this laptop bag to anyone!

    As a disabled individual, I was looking for something both large and small enough to allow me to transport my daily supplies for my employment. This bag allows me to transport everything while not interfering with the operation of my wheelchair. It has been most valuable to me.

    I liked the price and style of this computer/laptop bag. I was a little sad that the size and storage was so small. If you want a case for study materials and other cords, devices, and drives. This will not be your size. This is very compact and could be very practical for some users.

    Altho small & light-weight, this case carries both my Asus Flip & HP Stream laptops plus 2 mice. Cables have to be carried separately but it would accommodate a smaller laptop & peripherals. Nicely padded interior too, with a velcro strap on back to fasten the bag to my rolling luggage.

    Squeaky Bag

    I've had the bag for over 4 months and from the beginning it was extremely squeaky. This is incredibly annoying walking to and from class as it is very loud and is hard to ignore. It holds my items perfectly, is durable, and has a lot of space, but my god the squeaking is horrible.

    Lightweight but has plenty of padding to protect your laptop. Generous space with pocket space and organizer. Wish it had a ring or a water bottle holder and this would be even better. One knock I have on it is that it squeaks a lot, but that happens to many bags in general.

    I do not like a cumbersome bag for my laptop so this fit the bill. Low profile and slim. Easy to pull out at airport, not bulky or excessive. Good amount of padding and exterior pocket for cords and chargers. Nice!
