    If you want a bag that will not keep your contents secure, then this is the bag for you; otherwise, get something else. The front flap of this bag is pretty much useless. The velcro is weak and the magnets enclosed in the flap are not strong enough to keep the flap closed. Basically, anything more than a few pens in the outside pocket will cause the pocket to bulge, exposing whatever you have inside.

    Overall the bag isn’t too bad for $30-ish dollars. You can’t expect $100 quality for $30.

    To the people who are having trouble figuring out the bottom zipper – you unzip it and the top one to slide it over the handle of a wheeled suitcase.

    The good – It’s a stylish bag and my wife loves the pink. It holds the computer and has plenty of pockets for everything. In other words, it does what it’s suppose to for a great price.

    The bad (and it’s REALLY bad) – It smells. It smells HORRIBLE. As soon as I opened the plastic bag it was in I was engulfed in a horrid cloud of nastiness. Sprayed it with Febreeze and hung it up to air out. Hopefully the smell will go away or this thing will be unusable. Right now the whole room stinks because of it.

    4 stars if the smell goes away, 2 at best if it’s stinky.

    UPDATE 3/30/16 – After 4 times in the washing machine it finally smells better. The company that makes these saw my original review and suggested putting it in the washer. I like that they took the time to follow up and were very nice about everything.

    Not Bad for the Price, May 15, 2016

    The list of features is impressive (water resistance, pockets, pullman compatibility, etc) but some of the execution is half baked. I actually want to give it 3.5 stars, but decided to round it up for my amazon vote.

    Pros:
    – The grey has a nice color and texture. It could be a shade darker for guys.
    – It’s a Goldilocks size for me (not to big, not too small). I can carry a change of clothes at a pinch, but at 2.5 – 3” thick, it’s not bulky.
    – Extra bubble protection on one side of the laptop pocket, presumably for the more vulnerable screen side.
    – Water resistant fabric
    – Reasonably priced. Only about twice what a neoprene sleeve with handles costs.

    Cons:
    – As almost everyone pointed out, the magnetic flap on one side pocket is really useless. The weak magnets only ever hold down the flap when there is nothing in the side pocket, so it does not help that that pocket has multiple mini pockets along its entire length that encourage you to put things in it (e.g. phone, pens, glasses). But even a pair of glasses with no case will cause the magnetic latch to misalign and fail to hold the flap down. The stepped flap edge only exacerbates this glaring issue.
    – The other side pocket doubles as a loop that goes around your pullman luggage handle. However, the zipper that closes the bottom hole to make it a pouch is too loose and slides open on its own. You will lose small items like pens and business cards. I only trust this pocket to hold documents and magazines.
    – Each of the 2 handles is reinforced with a stitched jacket which is durable but chafes a little on the hands.
    – The mini pockets I mentioned above are made from too light a fabric, so even though they are gusseted, they don’t fold along those creases. Untidy, and can only get worse with wear.
    – The flap magnets make it feel more like a women’s purse. The zipper pulls are also too big and look like they came from a handbag.
    – The bag is a tad too long, so my 15” MacBook Pro is not snug. There is about 1.5” of extra space in the longest dimension.
    – The “Cool Bell” label is an example of branding gone awry. I sometimes carry this facing inwards to hide it from view.

    A lot of people complain about the durability of this bag. Mine is still new, and so far so good, but I will add to this review if there is anything to report in a few months.
