    Sling provides best protection

    I have a bad experience with my bags dropping and the laptop inside getting dinged up. In this bag the laptop sits in a stretchy sling so if it's dropped with the bottom down, it's going to protect the laptop much better than other bags with a thin layer of foam padding on the bottom. My one complaint about this bag is that there is no velcro loop that goes over the top of the laptop so if you drop it upside down, you don't get the same protection, but I suspect the beaded edges and handle would protect it some. Other thoughts: - It's made of tough material with sturdy zippers - The laptop section locks - It's a TSA enabled bag so you don't have to remove your laptop to go through airport security - The handles are rounded and soft which makes them good for carrying for long distances

    This is an awesome bag! So much room for all of my school paperwork plus notebooks and folders. The laptop storage is fully padded and has foam on the bottom so even if your laptop was to slip out of your hand into the bag it would be hitting a nice piece of foam instead of a hard bottom. It says that it is airport security passing (whatever that means). I think you can take it through TSA without having to remove the computer. I have not used this feature but Im sure TSA would make you take it out anyway. Its comfortable on the shoulder and in my hand. Would reccommend purchasing this bag if you are looking for a quality laptop on the go storage bag.

    Good build quality, particularly the hooks for the shoulder strap. This is important. Other bags have fasteners that seem to break too easily. Also, another key detail is the zippers, which are also of good quality. It's easy to overlook these two points and find a nice, seemingly high quality bag, only to have it start falling apart in these small, but annoying ways. Finally, it has a good number of pockets. I need plenty, as I prefer organization. If these things matter to you, then I would recommend this bag.

    Ample Space

    I needed a laptop bag that would carry lots of my stuff - laptop, tablet (sometimes two), paper, pens, chargers,... This does the job as there's plenty of space to accommodate all my items. I love it from that aspect. My one slight complaint (hence the 4 stars) is the positioning of the strap latches. They're placed in such a way that it often interferes with the opening and closing of the zippers for the various compartments. I would have liked to have seen them placed wider to be out of the way. But, I can live with this as my main purpose was to hold all my stuff, which it does.

    I really like the product. It fits my 15" laptop without a problem. Has plenty of space for additional items and the split in half feature has worked with no issues at TSA checkpoints. My only complaint is that since this bag is meant to split in half, the shoulder straps connect to the bag at the sides of the bag, instead of at the extremities. Since they are connected close to the extremities the bag 'skews' when a lot of weight is in the bag. I believe some kind of strap that had support at four locations (close to the four extremities) would resolve this issue.

    Very Functional Briefcase

    This is a great briefcase. It has three compartments to separate items (although the middle is used for airport screening, you can use it for thin items like papers or folders). There is a special, protective pocket for the laptop/notebook, a place for folders and a tablet/iPad/etc, and a place for accessories. I am very pleased with this briefcase and have only one complaint - The zippers get stuck sometimes on the corners. It seems as it's a minor design flaw where the inside fabric gets caught. I can live with it, though.

    Horrible Product

    This was horribly disappointing. I’ve bought NETGEAR products for years, but this was pathetic. I could not install working software on my iMac which is supposed to be supported. I tried installing on my HP Windows 10 laptop and it failed there also. Software ran once but wouldn’t start a second time after booting PC. I’m sure the device is fine, but the software is pathetic! TERRIBLE! Do NOT buy this!
