July 3, 2015 - Attractive and sturdy and I like the inside pockets too! Big enough for my laptop and papers. I got the blue and it is a really unique look that has drawn lots of compliments.
June 19, 2015 - Good sturdy bag. My only complain is mine has less contrast between it's stripes and has one spot where something rough pressed against the plastic. Luck of the draw with something of this nature. At $16 it is a bargain that can not be beat, and will be perfect for carrying my drawings in, and would also be perfect for a small to medium sized laptop or other handheld device.
October 17, 2014 - I'm most impressed with how sturdy/durable this bag is (the most important trait for me, since I wear out purses and totes fast). It is very well constructed and smart-looking. I got it in the blue, and it's very artsy and professional. There is not a lot of 'give' depth wise (maybe up to 4-5 inches), but it still can hold a lot.
