This bag is absolutely amazing!
I like the style, how compact it is and how I can fit just about everything I need in it!
As a sophomore in HS, the teachers load us down with textbooks, paperwork and more textbooks, and I used to use a rolling Targus bag, which was extremely clunky and not easy to carry up stairs, or carry onto the bus, so I switched to this bag and it is absolutely amazing!
I can fit my iPad, my Macbook Pro w/ Retina 13", my Alg II/Trig book and all my homework assignments and paperwork! Only flaw is, if you plan on using the outer pocket on the front-side, put slim items into it, otherwise you're going to have a horrendous time trying to latch the strap.
Another flaw is that if you plan to carry more than one text book, or more than 'a few' books, you are in for some trouble. When I bought this bag, I switched over to use the online text-books, eliminating unnecesary weight and also allowing it to have a more slim profile, but for those wanting to carry hard shell books, you might not exactly find this bag very accommodating.
Anyway, there is my daily rant! Otherwise, this is an absolutely lovely bag for those people on the go who want to have a bag that is worth the money!
i absolutely love this bag! It is slim, nice looking, has lots of room for accessories like external superdrive, portable hard drive, and power cord. The reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is that the specialized IPAD compartment will only fit a naked IPAD or possibly one that is wearing a smart cover. Any other cover or case on the IPAD will not fit in the compartment. Overall it is a great bag and worth the money!
