I love the look and construction of the bag. The adjustable strap is a huge win, but I don’t know if I could tolerate a loaded bag without the add-on padded strap. The compartments that are provided are adequate for some uses but too small for others while the large central pocket is too large to keep items organized. I’m most disappointed that the laptop sleeve is sewn in to the bag – this wasn’t obvious on the website and the written description led me to think that the sleeve was like the other bag accessories, not an integral part of the bag. A flap pocket would be nice, but isn’t a deal breaker.
