This bag is just awesome, probably one of my best purchases ever. It is really high quality- I’ve had it for almost 4 years and have used it every day for work (love the laptop divider and lunch compartment!). It seriously has stood up to hard use, commuting on the train and walking in all kinds of weather.
After all this the only noticeable wear is the key leash is starting to fray slightly- but that’s it! I have it in black and get compliments all the time. I wish there was a dedicated water bottle spot, but it’s already a large bag- l’m petite so a bigger bag might look a little nuts. For water I push back the Velcro divider inside to make a spot.
Also I have exclusively used this as my plane carryon, didn’t even know how much I would love the back slide pocket that slips it on your suitcase handle. I have the lunchbox too and it fits a real sized lunch that will get you through the day.
I’m pretty minimal so it’s great how much use I’ve gotten from this one bag- and it’s still going strong (and looking practically new)! Clearly I recommend it, if you’re considering buying I’d say go for it :)
