  I had a two-week wait..., January 31, 2012
By mail
I had a two-week wait for this bag (I don't live in the US) and when the Parcelforce man handed me the tiny, featherweight box, my heart sank. I suspected I'd ordered the wrong item. When I took it out of the packaging, the bag looked even smaller and I was steeling myself to the fact that I might need to return it. I really didn't believe it would take an A4 pad or a 13 inch laptop, let alone both. But it swallowed absolutely everything I loaded into it -- 13" laptop, several pads, A4 documents, pens, iPad, make-up bag, chargers, phone, snacks, and more -- with room to spare. It even took a Rhodia size 19 top-bound pad and its plastic cover, which is at least an inch longer than A4. I compared it to my other laptop bags (notably a Superdry one I bought recently) and they're much bulkier and yet only accommodate a fraction of the items that I can get into this bag with ease. The compartments are easy to access, and I can live with the Velcro noise. I took the precaution of spray-waterproofing it before taking it outside because I'd read reviews that suggested it might be showerproof but not rainproof, but that's probably my worry-gland working overtime. It sits close to the body so you can move through a train or plane easily - no smacking other passengers in the face with your bag as you struggle down the aisle. In other words - good design, and worth every penny. If they expand the colour and material range in this style, I'll be back for more.
