"This is the most streamlined and comfortable backpack that I have ever owned!! I am a professional speaker/trainer and use this daily to transport my laptop, projector and various written materials. I need both hands free to drag two other pieces of luggage which I check at the airport and yet have all my electronics in my possision in the backpack.
I am a plus size woman and the straps are wide enough and long enough to comfortably go around my waist, chest and shoulders. The handle at the top of the bag is padded for comfort even when I have to grab the bag and run!! There are 2 side zip pockets that release a mesh pouch for water bottles. The over flap is secured by 2 adjustable click together straps. When the flap is released it completely folds back and clear of the top opening, for easy access to your laptop. The 2 large compartments have 2 zippers each that can be zipped together at the top before you close the flap. I like this because it makes me feel that I don't have to be extra cautious about someone unzipping the bag from behind. Also, the profile of this bag is flat as opposed to the rounded look of a traditional backpack. This isn't just for show. The squared bottom and rectangular height allows this bag to stand freely without tipping over, even with the flap open. Especially nice feature.
The interior is padded for my 17.3" laptop and a second large compartment for my slim line projector. There is, yet,another zipped compartment that keeps my pens, papers etc organized. And finally a company who designed 2 smaller zipped pouches on the exterior (under the flap) for multiple cell phones in one pouch and smaller electronics in the other. Again, fast easy access!! The contruction of the bag is great and I expect it to last a long time.
And last but not least the bag is beautiful!! I chose the red because it is my favorite color and it makes it so easy to identify. I would definitely purchase this bag or any other Laurex product. Outstanding design!!"
"The backpack is lovely and I have gotten many compliments on it in the three days I used it. However, it is going back as the stitching connecting the flap to the body of the bag has come out on one side after 2 days! It is frayed and hanging there. And I do not treat bags roughly. I had my last backpack, used daily, for three years. Beautiful bag but so disappointed in the quality and durability."
