    Hate to do it…., November 10, 2015

    I hate to do it. Honestly, I do. The case was great and fit my Toshiba Satellite snug and securely. Plenty of pockets for the mouse, USB cords, the charger, etc. Plenty of room. Life was good.

    Then it happened. The strap unclipped itself while I was leaving my office this afternoon. You see, they are intended to be free spinning, typical straps. Except when it doesn’t twist, it will come off. Another review I read mentioned this. “Nah, that’s just a once in a blue moon scenario” I told myself after reading it. I shuddered the same phrase as I watched the case fall corner first. Not even enough time to realize what had happened, as it was only hanging from my shoulder….

    Opened the bag to find my 850 dollar laptop with a dented frame and shattered screen. That was hours ago, and now here I am. Return processed and a backpack ordered. Just get a backpack, It’s not worth the risk to your electronics. There isn’t enough padding. Learn from my mistakes! Look at the carnage and don’t let it happen to yours!!

    Beware of unpadded bottom corners and releasing strap clips, March 16, 2015

    This bag has two significant problems that really should be addressed.

    Firstly, the padding is insufficient in the bottom corners. There is enough padding at the bottom and sides, but almost no padding at the corners, which are the most vulnerable points on your laptop.

    Secondly, the shoulder strap attaches to the bag with two plastic clips, and they can let go when least expected, especially when the strap was a little twisted before picking it up. This has happened to me on multiple occasions.

    The combination of these two problems has led to my laptop suffering corner damage from falling onto pavement when I picked up my bag by the strap, and it decided to let go.

    If you have a nice laptop, this is an accident waiting to happen.
