    Have owned this bag for about 2 years and thought I’d weigh in on it. I use this bag weekly for business travel and the two things that drew me to it were the light weight (empty) and the design/colors – it’s not your typical black rolling laptop bag.

    Pros: It’s cute, have gotten many compliments on it.
    It’s relatively light, though when loaded with a laptop and other essentials, it’s still 12+ pounds.
    The side pocket for water or soda – outstanding functional design, folds in, secures with internal magnet when not in use
    Multiple organization sections – room for files, section for pens, larger area for bulkier things, i.e., power cord, makeup bag, etc.
    Fits in every overhead bin I’ve encountered (small regional planes) but not under all seats.
    My Dell laptop fits perfectly in the padded section, zipper design allows for fast, easy access at airports.

    Cons: The single stem retractable handle – looks cool but makes it impossible to set another bag on top – flips off to the side.
    The side bottle pocket fabric is starting to shred – lighter nylon fabric is not as sturdy.
    The wheels are now very noisy – going to try some WD40 to see if that helps but it’s very annoying.
    The retractable handle stops at each section don’t hold the handle up anymore.
    If you have a lot of things in the front sections, it tends to tip forward – the stabilizer bar on the bottom front should be taller.
    The contour factor for carrying would be great if there was any way to attach a shoulder strap, but there isn’t. The mfg. literature says it comes with
    a shoulder strap but it doesn’t – they use the same literature for their smaller shoulder bag.

    I’m now looking to replace this bag because of the noisy wheels and the shredding fabric. Nothing I’m finding comes close to the storage and fun factor of this bag, but the fact that I can’t sit a smaller bag (purse) on top of it while pulling (the single stem doesn’t work for that, smaller bag flips off to one side or other) would be enough to keep me from purchasing this bag again.

    This is a good-looking feminine bag. I’ve had it a week – here are my thoughts.

    Pros:
    Cute
    Lots of places to stash small goodies (newspapers, magazines, pens, kleenex)
    Slim look handle
    Clear wheels

    Cons:
    Handle a bit tricky to extend/put back; wobbly
    No shoulder strap, no hooks for a strap should you want one
    A bit on the heavy side for such a small bag (5 lb 5 oz)
    Not at all quiet on asphalt
    Magnetic-closed bag straps are about 2-3″ too short to allow carrying it comfortably on the shoulder, so not at all sure why the “Air-Flo Contour (TM) Panel” is even there to “dissipate heat and hug the body for greater comfort.” This is the biggest reason it lost a star (along with no shoulder strap). It’s awkward to carry.

    The video is simply a quick and dirty look at the bag’s configuration:

    front pocket for pens and stuff with zipper pocket
    large outside slip magazine pocket
    larger zippered pocket with divider (same depth as the magazine pocket = 0)
    main zippered pocket with quilted notebook holder – I put a tape dispenser in the bottom to show the depth available (my laptop is in the bag)
    bottle holder on the outside with magnets to keep it closed when not in use
    zippered handle storage
    zippered back compartment with four elasticized mesh pockets – this is 2-2.5″ deep and is divided by the handle
    smaller outside slip magazine pocket

    Largest dimensions: 17.75 W x 7.25 D x 14.75 T inches (without straps)

    I was looking for a rolling laptop bag that looks like a women’s tote when carried and was so thrilled to find this one. It looks great and and hold much more than it looks like it would. I love the water bottle holder. There is room for files and notebooks, a small make up bag and purse. Seems very durable too. Please note: there is no shoulder strap as the described.
