- Q & A
A little heavy/clunky for me
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
I ordered this bag as a smaller carry-on option to pair with my carry-on roller, with no plans to use it for business purposes. I liked that the bag had a sleeve for securing it to your roller bag, but was also easy to carry. When the bag arrived, I was disappointed to find that it was much heavier and stiffer than I had imagined. This is probably a great feature if you're looking to protect your laptop, tablet, and work documents; but it wasn't what I was looking for in a carry-on. I'd agree with other reviews I've seen, that the front pocket isn't very accessible and it'd be better if the zipper ran around the sides so you could open it more. The organizational pockets seem more or less useless if you can barely fit your hand in the pocket to access them.
Great case - 😀
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I use this for a briefcase out in the field - I'm a Architect and this holds my iPad Pro, drawing sets, and other items I need for my overnight trips to CA from WA.
The front pocket is a bit hard to get into, but it is not a big deal.
I use this for my gym stuff as well - can't go wrong here.
Highly recommended 😃
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I bought this to replace the Osprey FlapJack that I've used over the past five years. A complaint that I had with the Osprey was the lack of a significant front pocket and having to unbuckle the flap every time I needed interior access. Hence, I didn't need a messenger bag, I needed more of a briefcase. This Patagonia seemed to fit the bill based on what I could ascertain online. I just received the product and just transferred the items from the Osprey to the Patagonia. Initial observations tell me that I know that I'll like the briefcase style access better and there is better separation between the laptop/tablet zippered pocket and the area where you'd store files, books, and etc. I bought it in black and consider it to be an attractive bag that can pass the "professional" test yet still retain a slight "technical" vibe. I could've used slightly more space overall but I knew what I was getting considering the volume was published. My biggest complaint would have to be how the front pocket is accessed. It is a straight zipper across the top which requires you to have to reach down into the bag to retrieve pens, pencils, chargers or whatever you might have stored in there. I would have preferred more of a radius designed zipper that would somewhat "peel" down a bit to provide better access to my goods. All in all, it seems like it will work well for me and has satisfied my complaints due to my experience with messenger style bags. From a value standpoint, it's a Patagonia, probably a little more $$ than what it's worth but I knowingly and willingly bought it with this already in mind. From what I could find, it seemed to have the most of what I was looking for.
Patagonia - If you are reading this, I'd suggest offering this bag in a larger size as well. Perhaps something in the 1800-1900 range?
