Summary: Essentially: if you're looking for a shoulder bag with lots of space, this is a great choice. But if you're going to carry around that much stuff, consider a backpack, which will do a far better job of distributing the weight.
Pros: - Sturdy, well-made, protects the laptop well - Very comfortable pad on the shoulder strap - top-loading design allows for quick access - TONS of space, with lots of different pockets - I've fit a laptop, adapter, mouse, ipod, wallet, notebook, 3-inch binder, and a fairly large hardback textbook in this thing.
Cons: All that space is both the best and worst feature of this bag. Sure, I can fit 15 pounds of stuff in to it, but then I have to carry that stuff on my shoulder, and after walking around the whole day with this bag, both my shoulder and the leg underneath it were killing me.
Pros: I bought this to carry my laptop that I built. You guys that are techs, know how much junk you need to carry with you in the field when you have to work on something... you never know WHAT youre going to need, so you carry just about anything to be prepared. This bag took all I needed to carry (INCLUDING the A/V cables to hook my lappy to a TV) and STILL has room to spare. nice, set up well with good compartments.... its a must have!!!
