I just received this bag as a gift, and I just had to write a review. It is even better then it looks in the pics, with a canvas exterior that is waterproof, and roomy insides with a padded lining, perfect for carrying your laptop, or all the extras that some of us need! I am a diabetic, and up til now, had been unable to find a suitable bag to carry my kit in, like insulin pens, meters, etc. I also pack around a Kindle, PDA, and other 'necessary' items, as girls do!! I can't recommend this bag highly enough if you're looking for something sturdy, and very attractive. It's a medium size, (unless you're a really small person). It has very sturdy construction, heavy-duty zips, and it feels like it will last forever! It would be perfect for a school person, or someone like me, who needs to carry medical supplies, or anyone in need of a good looking bag. It would nicely handle a get-away weekend, too...(it is the perfect carry on luggage).
As you have guessed, I am delighted with my new bag, and it has my 5 star recommendation!!!!!
