If I could wink at this bag, I would.
I love it so much. It's constructed very well. One of the most important things to me was finding a bag that would simultaneously hold a laptop and a drawing tablet. This bag does all of those things and more (it has some other nice pockets). The padding is just right too ---not too much, and definitely not too little.
I am very happy and I think almost everyone would feel the same if they had this bag too.

I've had this for a few days, and have been rained on a couple times here in FL on my moto. The laptop has been totally unscathed thanks to this bag, so the water repellentcy is good. While you imagine from the pics that it sits like a regular bag, it appears to have been designed to hang off the left shoulder, with the flap on the right side in use. It wears more like a backpack than a shoulder bag. There IS a carry handle on the left side, but you can only use it when the bag is closed and latched. There is a laptop securing velcro strap inside of the padded cell to keep it from slipping out, but I still wouldn't use that handle unless the flap was closed. There is an internal document sleeve for papers on the outside wall, and one pocket on the laptop cell that's slightly smaller than a DVD case. Modern slim DVD and Bluray cases will probably fit. There's enough room inside the bag itself for my helmet bag/cover, a set of riding gloves, reflective vest, and a few other small things I carry around. The two large outside pockets are zippered up, and I haven't needed to use them yet. My only complaint is that there's no real reflective strips or anything on the case, which you would imagine would be handy on a messenger bag that would be used on a bike or moto (I do both), but this minor safety feature aside, and the fact that it does not have a waist strap, I would give it five stars.
