The bag is made out of a high quality 2520 Denier Nylon, meaning it is a very strong weave. The backpack did not show any signs of wear or tear during the review but of course we weren’t about to ruin the bag for the review either. The Pro-DLX zippers were very strong and latched well. Additionally, the construction of the seams seemed to be high quality. The shoulder straps are gel-infused to increase comfort. Non-slip shoulder pads attached to the strap to disburse weight more evenly on your shoulder while you travel. A swivel clip at the end of the strap helps prevent twisting. The bag comes in Black or Tobacco. Its handles are made out of nappa leather and all of the trim and details are mango orange, giving the bag a sophisticated look.
The bag is capable of fitting laptops up to 15″ in the removable sleeve, and 16″ without the sleeve. It was slightly big for my 13.3″ laptop, but I still felt that it gave ample protection. There is plenty of storage space in the main compartment for folders, papers, and whatever else you need, while the front zipper compartment can hold your power cords, a notebook mouse, your cell phone, pens, etc. The dimensions are 11.5″x 13″x 2.5″ and it weighs 4 lbs, 8 oz. The pack comes with a 3 year warranty and is available online or in stores.
