Excerpt: I travel frequently and carry project specifications and vendor manuals for equipment so the bag is usually as full as I can pack it. Great bag, sturdy, plenty of pockets and comfortable to carry which brings me to my only complaint. I wore out the original carrying strap and the company has sent me two replacements but they are both cheaply made and don't stay on my shoulder like the original one did nor do they have the nice padding of the original.
Pros: Comfortable Strap, Good Protection, Lots Of Pockets And Features, Rugged, Stylish, Used For Pkgclothes Too, Weatherproof
Excerpt: I use this case daily to and from work and on out of town trips. This is my third Kensington Contour roller case; I use them until they wear out. Great for all the little things you like to carry along with your computer ie flash drives, files, cords etc. Last one I had, the telescope handle eventually would not stay up; we'll see how this one holds up. Great case.
Pros: Lots Of Pockets And Features, Rugged, Weatherproof
Excerpt: I must be honest; I haven't had a chance to really use it much. But I will say that, compared to my past roller notebook cases, it is very well built. I was attracted by it being able to be used both as a roller and as a carry case. It looks slim enough to slip under the airplane seat. It has a convenient external pocket for a water bottle. The inner padding for the laptop is one of the better ones I've seen.
Pros: Comfortable Strap, Good Protection, Lots Of Pockets And Features, Rugged

Excerpt: I roll around NYC & up & down subway stairs. The case is sturdy, so far, rolls Ike a dream, has lots if compartments, holds my 17" PC nicely along with pencils, the usual purse contents, folders and on and on. The handle is a bit wobbly, but no problem. It's two flaws are - it's the tiniest bit too wide to make it through subway stalls while pulling it, and the pole handle makes it really hard to put anything on top of the case.
Pros: Comfortable Strap, Good Protection, Lots Of Pockets And Features
Summary: I've had this case for 1 3/4 years under extra heavy usage. I load lots of extras into the case adding much extra weight and using its total internal capacity. I have it in and out of my vehicle 3-5 times a day and put many miles on the wheels and case on the streets of a large Northern city. It's been through snow, rain, heat, stairs, gravel, etc. Overall the case has survived pretty well and I still use it daily.
Pros: Easy to roll--large wheels. Lots of space for all the extras you need with your laptop. Side bottle holder is handy. Shoulder strap works well if the case is not overloaded with heavy items.
Cons: Several zippers have failed /tabs pulled out/ teeth separated/stitching pulled out from case. Not able to strap extras to single pole handle.
Summary: This bag seems to be very high quality. I am impressed with the product. It is heavy but I purchased it for the rolling feature so that shouldn't normally be an issue. There are many sotrage pockets. Great for organizing all of the little things. There isn't a lot of storage for paperwork but I it isn't terrible either. The pockets are very deep and roomy and my laptop is well protected even though it quite a bit smaller than 17 inches.
Pros: Well protected computer sleeve. Many storage pockets. Ergonomic Handle. Hidden Telescoping Handle. Overall Great Quality of Fabric and Hardware- looks like it will hold up. Great padded shoulder strap
Cons: HEAVY- even by itself without any contents. Handle seems a bit wobbly- concern about breakage but I have never used a product like this before, it may be okay. Not enough storage for paperwork.
Summary: portable and affordable price, looks very professional, and can carry about 25lbs. I'm so lucky to buy it at buy.com with just $40 after rebate which is very cheap comparing with other seller.
