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 pa... Read More

    Great for carrying my laptop - cushion and separate compartment provide protection. Also, enough room to carry a folder. Two front pockets with zippers hold keys and cards. This is a good bag for a "light load"....if you're looking for something to carry to the gym - sneakers, shorts, toiletries, etc, it's probably too small.

    This is the perfect bag for my 13" laptop. The ergonomic strap is so comfortable and there is plenty of room inside for extra stuff. The reinforced strap will never break.

    I like the looks of this bag and thought it was very well constructed but the "fit" was just odd. You are pretty much restricted to wearing it one particular way because of how the straps are constructed and I just felt it left me open to pick-pocketers OR not being able to reach into the bag when walking to and from my destination. I generally love Columbia products so was disappointed that this wasn't the bag for me. Exchanged it for another similar bag. Thanks STP for your great return policy!

    First off, this bag seems well made, so no worries there. Unfortunately it's intended for high schoolers or something. The strap is not really adjustable and kind of small (at least on my 6'2" average/thin body). And with my laptop inside (which surprisingly barely fits, it measure 14.9" x 10.2" x 1"), there is barely room for a notebook and some folders. The outside pockets don't expand outward, so anything in those (like laptop cords), similarly eats up space on the inside. It works as a simple tote, but it just doesn't have the capacity to get me through the day without swapping stuff in and out two or three times between meetings.

    I bought two of these bags one each for me college students. I had to return them because the straps are so short and there is no extra to extend it. I kept thinking that i was not figuring the strap out so I had a couple of other people give it a try and it was not me the strap is truly very short. It feels and looks like the bag is right up the armpit.

  • “How long is the shoulder strap? also is the front flap secured in any way? or would it be relatively easy for a thief to reach in and take something?”
    Asked by MangoLinda from Hawaii on 7/20/2014 3:25:40 PM
    • The strap can extend out to about 43". Yes, the front flap secures with buckles.

  • “There is no review on this item. I don't see any handles for hand-carrying the bag. Also I don't quite understand the last photo---does the long strap go around the waist of the person? Does it disappear into a compartment? Please explain or send additional photos.”
    Asked by Nancy from Unknown on 12/14/2012 12:00:00 AM
    • It is a messenger bag the strap goes over one shoulder and across the torso. It has no handles to carry it by hand.

    • There is a handle on the left side of the bag. However, the case would be lucky to hold a 15" laptop. There is no way a 17" will fit in here. The back is a mesh backing designed to breathe.
