"I am using this for my artist supplies and artist classes. It is wonderfully durable and a rich chocolate brown. It matches my Vera Bradley Java Blue perfectly. I also like that it has the buckles, but it actually closes with Velcro so you don't have to be messing with those buckles when you are in a hurry."

"It is the perfect size for everything I need to carry with me each day. I enjoy using this bag for all my needs. It has plenty of pockets for extra storage, and a pocket for my Kindle Fire. I would like a place for pens or stylus storage, but that is a minor issue."

"The first one we ordered, had to return because the inside was not sewn properly. Got second one and I first noticed that there was two bad spots in the material, the zipper was broke and the inside still was not sewn properly. Needless to say, I would not recommend this bag. Very disappointed in this item. Someone is not doing a very good job when checking workmanship ."

"it was a bit smaller than i thought it would be. given that, it's organization is alright. the canvas seems durable, but it tends to be very floppy, shapeless & unstructured when it's open, making it difficult to fish items out of the bag (i bike commute, often stopping at the gym on the way, so this becomes an issue). it looks as good as the online pics show tho."

"The only thing I am disappointed in is that it gave measurements in the ad that showed it should hold by laptop very nicely. I reality, my laptop fits inside, but I have to pull and stretch the flap top to reach far enough down the front to actually get the velcro to catch, and then it just barely latches -- and I mean like only a half inch or less of velcro to catch. Do not feel comfortable that it will remain closed when I carry it over my shoulder, so have to be very cautious."

"It's smaller than I expected. Also, the photo is a bit misleading because I didn't realise that the leather straps on the front were not functional... it's primarily velcro and if I had realised this when I first looked at it I would have not purchased the item (I find velcro to be a bit obnoxious..especially in an office environment when I try to be courteous to other people working and not make so much sound). However, overall it is a decent bag. With my computer, I am not able to close it very well, but I can manage. I may end up looking for another bag but in the mean time it will work just well. A plus is the canvas-- I really like this aspect. and the pocket space is pretty nice."

"For 40.00, I couldn't find a better deal. I only saw it online, so I wasn't sure if it would be worth the money or look as good as I thought It would from the pictures. But once I received it, it had exceeded my expectations. This bag is just perfect and it looks good too. For 40.00, I got a very good deal..."
