Heavy but well built

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I was hoping this was going to be my go-to for a carry-on, but all of the zippers, pockets, compartments and padding make it too heavy. It's great for all of your electronics, but I would think twice before trekking too far with it. IMHO, if there was going to be so much padding, some of it should have been on the waist strap. It does balance well. I'll be looking for one will less weight for a carry on.


  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

I bought this for my wife and she really love this bag, she said that her tablet and laptop fits perfectly, the bag have a lot of different sizes pockets with an soft cotton internal fabric, highly recommended.
