I never give anything 5 stars, but I love this laptop bag and wanted to give it 5. But I never give anything 5, unless it lasts 20 years. But I have a big, heavy HP 17 inch monster laptop, and it snugly fits into this case. And I can fit pens, paper, mp3, phone and even the AC cord in the side pocket. And I like the webber loops for a couple of carabiners, because you never know when you might need one. But this is strictly a laptop brief, you can't do much else with it, but that's what I wanted it for. Weather resistant, durable and strong. I would recommend. And the reason I got the yellow, is because I knew I would be the only one in my entire town that had it, so it would help if some dick thieved it. Otherwise I would have chosen black.
