    I bought this as a gift, so I have not used it. I was very pleased with the color (red), the size and the quality. Overall I would rate this product as excellent.

    This is a great messenger bag, just a few minor issues that are probably personal preferences more than anything. I don't like that the interior pockets are a flap rather than attached, and an exterior pocket on the flap would be nice for the times when you don't want to have to open the bag. Other than these issues it seems well constructed and durable and serves most of the needs that I have for this bag. If you like a good everyday messenger bag this is a god one.

    This is my second bag of its kind. The first was stolen with my computer and I've replaced it with the Mountainsmith. At first, it seemed less substantial than the one it replaced but I've since grown to love it. I have another Moutainsmith bag and I've found them to be rugged, very well made and well thought out. This bag has lots of pockets --both inside and outside.

    I recommend this bag and it fits my 15inch MacBook Pro beautifully!

    This bag has gone beyond my expectations. Today I hauled a 15" MacBook Pro, all the cords, my personal belongings that usually go in a purse: wallet, phone, sunglasses, reading glasses, coin purse, and other essentials. Additionally I was able to fit a rain jacket, turtleneck sweater, t-shirt, and workout gear. I was nervous that the weight of the laptop would tear the carrying strap right off. No way! This bag is well made, with many little pockets, zipped compartments, and the main storage area is quite large. I like the fact that the Velcro on the flap of the bag has lots of area in which to catch upon. This is my first messenger style bag. I have always carried backpacks. I like the ease of access of the front pockets, the amount of storage room, the fact that I can carry either my MacBook or my iPad and keyboard with no worries about the construction features of the bag. I recommend this product and this manufacturer for quality workmanship, materials, and ease of use.

    I looked at other messenger bags, like Timbuk2, but found this bag to be a great option for the price. I could buy 2 of these, for the price of other bags. I agree with other reviewers here that the strap does need to be adjusted to make it "messenger length", and the laptop portion is a little tight for larger laptops, but the bag is so well made and holds a ton of stuff. I use it for work everyday, and have used it as a backup gym bag, and even took it to the beach. Love it.
