A bit odd handle - great otherwise
on 23 January 2011
The outside material looks like suede on the picture, but it's actually quite durable and good looking textile. The bottom looks to be thicker (like rubberized) leatherette, so it won't soak-in any dirts, if you put it down in a train or so and it's also easy to clean, although the pads on the bottom are too wide from each other to support the laptop inside, so the bag won't really stand on them.
The odd thing with the leatherette handle is, that is sewed to the straps, so it leans a bit under the neck and secondly the stitching along should have been on the other side, as now it presses into your palm and fingers, if your bag is loaded, while the other side of the handle is nicely round, but you can't really hold it that way.
Zips work well. The straps are well padded and long enough even for tall figures.
Its two main compartments are spacious (wider in the bottom), with perfect padding around laptop. My widescreen 15" laptop fits in comfortably, leaving good 3-4" space above and there's still enough left for a flatter lunch box, notebooks, camera, and indeed adaptor&mouse.
There're couple reticulate pockets inside, the front compartment has holders for the keys, club-cards, pens and secure/zipped pocket. It's light-grey-brown from inside - making it bright and easy to find anything even in the bottom. Two smaller zipped pockets aside and one more flat in the front are very handy too.
