Summary: Love these bags by Kensington. I have ordered well over 6 of these over the years for family amd friends. The handles have a tendency to break after a few years but thre is a limited lifetime warranty that they honor. Will continue to use this particular model. It is great for travel with the rollers and extending handle. The fabric wears like iron and the stitching has never been a problem.
Summary: I used this bag for school because it had a space for my laptop, books and a cool compartment for my gadgets. I loved the design and layout but.......... The bag didn't even last the semester! first of all the little velcro expandable pocket on the side tore out of the stitches within the first week. I thought eh, it's just a side pocket.............come to find out it was indicative of things to come.
Summary: This is the second Kensington Contour that I have purchased. The second only differs in the telescoping arm(the earlier model was curved). My first Contour lasted 5 years of 50% air travel plus day to day into the office. The Contour is the perfect size to fit in the overhead bins in any aircraft. It will also slide under the seat in front of your if not fully stuffed. The second seems to be of the same quality as the first.
Summary: Bag did not look as good in person as it does online. For the price, I did not think the appearance was quality. The bag seemed sturdy, but I returned it after finding a better looking bag for a few bucks less!
Excerpt: I got one of these today. Excellent for pulling, bit of a drag when you have to get on and off buses for instances and you've got to carry it high. But literally a couple of dozen places to store stuff inside it - ingenious usage of space. But make sure you use it for a laptop (as it protects it well), else, you may as well get a trolley with a lot more space.
