It's simple in design and function.
The canvas is pretty thick overall and the stitching is decent. Lots of boxed reinforced stitching on connection points.
Large flap in front and has 4 pockets.
Wide, soft shoulder strap is reinforced and has no padding.
It won't stand up by itself, it's a basic messenger bag.
It's a great bag, because it's large and simple.
You can really customize this thing to make it your own.
It'll hold schools books and your laptop or tablet.
I would protect laptops with a sleeve or something for more added protection.
Overall, I really like it for what is and the price.
I know this bag will last me a while.
Really Good Sturdy Canvas Messenger Bag.
If I could make an improvement it would be to add a handle at the top the bag and to add a clasp on the front flap to keep the bag closed. Add those 2 things and the bag would be beyond Excellent! I would have 3 more. Great bag...
This is a surprisingly useful bag. The main compartment holds more than it looks, and is more than enough to carry a laptop, a file folder, pencil case, and assortment of little things. The outer pockets on the side are perfect for bottled water. My only gripe is with the length adjuster on the shoulder strap, which sits just over my collarbone because of my height. Also, keep an eye on the amount of stuff you put into the bag, because it could easily get too heavy to lift.
Great bag for students - the strap on all these types of bags should be a lot longer - about 60" - students like to wear them long.
