After reading the reviews of this product, I was worried that I would get a bag that wasn’t capable of carrying my laptop – but the price was too good to pass up, so I thought I’d risk it. When the box got here, I opened it up, and was surprised at how spacious, and well-put together the bag was. I had no problem slipping my laptop – Dell Inspiron 1525, 15.4″ – inside. The fit is a little snug, I’d really only have the slightest trouble pulling it out quickly, if I end up needing to, but I feel secure that my laptop is safe inside of this bag. There’s padding on the back, where it would rest against the body, and the sleeve that the laptop slides into is padded from all sides. There are more pockets than I was led to believe, which is an absolute plus! There are three medium to large sized pockets inside, perfect for, perhaps, hand held systems – like a PSP, or DS. There are also two outside pockets, made for iPods, or cell phones, and a little mesh pocket for whatever smaller items you may need, including three or four slots for pens or pencils. There is also a smaller pocket on the outside flap, for items you may need to access more easily, and don’t have the time to unsnap the clasps.
In addition, there’s a (removable) strap to, I assume, wrap around the body, should you be using this bag while biking, or if you feel the need to have a little more security that it won’t fall. The quality of this bag is excellent, and I’m very surprised and happy about that. I was looking for a bag to take on a cross-country trip, and hadn’t been able to find one yet that could fit everything I need. As well as the laptop sleeve, there’s a great deal of space in the larger pocket, enough for books, the accessories for your laptop, or anything else you may end up needing. It’s a great bag for casual use, as well as hard, everyday use.
It’s absolutely worth it for the price, and I love it already. All I needed was a bag for one trip, but I know I’ll be using this bag very often in the future!
To anyone who’s considering purchasing this bag – go ahead! Make sure you look up the measurements on the Dell Inspiron 1525 – as that is the very limit to what the laptop pocket can accept!
Well constructed bag that easily fits my Dell Latitude D620 (14.1″ screen) with more than enough room for power cord, paperwork, book, water bottle, and other things I usually put…
