It is not a day sack it is a laptop bag. And a good one at that.
on 17 May 2013
To set the record straight. This bag is a brief case in the design of a shoulder rucksack. So the reviews that are giving it low stars and calling it rubbish are simply in error. If you are thinking of buying this bag. Thinking it is a day sack. Small ruck sack for use on a day long hike then your looking at the wrong product.
Sorry to say it, maybe the description on amazon isn't crafted well enough. But if anyone who saw this bag first and then still bought it as a day sack. You need taking out the gene pool sharpish.
This bag won't perform for that service much the same way a hard traditional brief case wouldn't be sufficient either. So blaming the bag for your error isn't justified. It can't be what it isn't meant to be. Fair enough the pic on this page makes it look wide and thick. But that is clearly filled to bursting point. Just fold a pair of jeans up as if you were putting them away in a draw. That's practically the size of it when it arrives with nothing in. It's a small slim bag designed for one purpose. To be a laptop bag.
The bag has two compartments. The back compartment in heavily padded and has a sleeve for a lap top to be housed in. Fit's my macbook pro in perfectly. However not much room for anything else. The front compartment is the typical pouch and pocket compartment you get. With all the smaller module pockets for pens, note books and the like. It has a little bit of give to it so you can put a sat-nav, a camera and some power adopters in there. I use it for A4 sketch books and some pencil cases. And it has a zipped out pocket under the gelert logo. I use that pocket to keep my kindle in.
The bag is awesome if you actually buy it for the purpose it was intended to be used in. It is waterproof. Made out of a robust thick pvc type material. That is the same as gelert's expedition range holdalls. As it is clearly from that same range of bags.
As a note too, I use mine in conjunction with a 40 L gelert expedition holdall. And it fits in the holdall very nicely when I have the room for it.
It's a nice neat, small slim bag with no extra material or bagginess to take up to much room if you put it in a larger bag to carry with other things.
So as a laptop bag it's perfect if you want a laptop bag you can carry on your shoulder to work or university. Knowing it's water proof and well padded and not so large you wish you had a bag small enough to just it a laptop in.
And at 15 pounds it's more then a bargain. Really happy with it. It looks cool too LoL
