Classic Crumpler style made from bomb-proof materials, but with a few flaws. I got this to use as a laptop bag for a 15" Macbook Pro. It fits perfectly and, from the sides is very well protected with sturdy padding, but crucially the bottom and corners have little padding and leaves the edges of a notebook exposed to bangs especially as the bottom and corners is where the bag will land when dropped or carelessly plonked on the floor so work is needed there. As I said, the materials and style of the bag are excellent, but the strap showed evidence of cost cutting and is made from a single strip of car seat belt webbing with no padding. I used a shoulder pad from my old Crumpler bag to remedy this, but it is a non colour matched solution. Other features are a side pocket inside for papers / chargers well padded between it and the laptop sleeve. The lid also has a mesh pocket. Lid pocket and main bag lid are secured with very tough velcro which should deter the casual pick-pocket as it makes a loud racket when pulled open.
