My previous laptop bag wilts down and gets in the way of my legs when I am at the office. This one stands upright even without a laptop inside, having a very compact surface area. The bag itself is made from good quality material, the double zips are all strong, pockets are well thought out. The small reflective bands help enhance visibility in the dark.
I purchased this bag for work to carry my laptop and files. This bag has plenty of room for a 17" laptop and more. Has two late compartments and a front pocket. Also, it came with a lock and has two large side bottle holders. would definitely recommend this bag. Totally happy with this purchase.
So far I've only used the bag on one flight but boy did I take advantage of the space. I had a 17" laptop and various other items I needed for work. This bag held up to the task for travel as well as my every day work tasks while on a 2-week excursion. I didn't use the built-in USB and audio cable so I can't vouch for that portion. The side pockets are huge which is a gift
