I spent quite a bit of time comparing bags (function, style, quality) before committing to the purchase of this bag. Being a mom, female chemist, and head of the lab department, I find that this ever day work bag is just what I needed. I carry my Apple iPad, file folder, wallet, notes, bag of personal items, lotion, gum, sanitizing wipes, day mail, pens, earbuds, work phone, and believe it or not my thermos coffee has room to stand up in the bag along with my sweater. I needed a bag that stood up and packed well. The strap had to be a heavy duty and this bag delivers! Clever design, sturdy seams, high-degree of functionality, high quality leather and canvas material. I can’t say enough about this bag, it clearly shows that it was designed by someone who actually use their products. Yes, I recommend this product.
