Almost Perfect Rolling Case
I looked far and wide for a rolling case, almost hoping to not find what I was looking for. I travel a lot and was tired of my back hurting schlepping my laptop and other work stuff through the airport every trip. So many rolling briefcases are dowdy or geeky or just plain ugly. I wanted something that was first and foremost a beautiful, classic bag. I didn't want to compromise style just for a practical bag. Second, I did need it to be functional. It had to be big enough to hold, and organized enough so I could find, my laptop and cord, my wallet, makeup bag (no sense also carrying a handbag), Kindle, ipod, pens, business cards, a magazine, and maybe a pad and a few papers. I liked the idea of a bag where the handle would disappear in the situations where I would carry it like a regular briefcase.
This bag meets all of those criteria. I have had it for about 3 months and have traveled extensively with it. So far it has been great. It holds everything I need to schlep and has a number of sections to keep me organized. Fully packed it can be quite heavy but it rolls very easily and the handle feels very strong and sturdy. I have carried it up stairs numerous times by the extended rolling handle. Plus because it is a bigger bag it doesn't fit below the seat in an airplane and has to go in the overhead bin. I don't necessarily find this a negative, it just means you need to think through what you need before the plan takes off so that you can work from the get-go.
My only negative as stated by others is that when packed the weight of the bag is in the forward section and so it easily tips forward. I have learned to compensate by leaning it against a wall or chair when I stop. But if they could remedy this issue it would easily be a 5 star product.
Great selection, well worth the price.

i love this bag for what it is
By Randilyne Huckaby
i love this bag for what it is...it fits my enormous dell 17" laptop in the front pocket (won't fit in laptop sleeve but oh well) and i put my huge battery charger in the back to balance the weight so it won't tip over. works perfect to and from and the office. IT DOES NOT FIT UNDER THE SEAT ON A PLANE. So get your crap out before take off and you are good to go. It doesn't fit clothes or anything besides what goes in my purse and my work files and laptop but that is just what i need it for. Pockets are easy to get in and out of. Handle works well (i lift it all the time and it is 20+lbs).

It rolls great and I think the handle is quite sturdy
This bag has plenty of room for my laptop and its components (cords, mouse, etc.) in the first section. There is also plenty of room to store office supplies (pens, pencils, post-it notes, etc.) in the front flap. I can carry papers and a portfolio to about 10 inches thick in the back pocket. It rolls great and I think the handle is quite sturdy. Nice red color for women who do not want black. While it can tilt over, I find that only happens when it is way overstuffed. I am very happy with this purchase.
