Rated5out of5byMrfluffynutsfromPerfect BreifCan be tough to close the zipper while carrying the bag. Two handles would better spred the front/back load.

Rated5out of5byPG HikerfromExcellent Bag for the urban hikerAfter switching back and forth between a laptop back pack and a briefcase for far too many trips, I decided I needed a bag that would not only carry all of my office essentials (laptop, notebook, pens, etc) but also my stuff to keep me sane during travel (book, tablet).
This bag has done all of that and more. I absolutely love it. There is ample space for all of my stuff and enough zippered pockets to keep things where they should be. I like the fact that I can detach the laptop if needed and that I can fit not only my laptop (15") but also the power cord quite easily.
It is an excellent bag for air travel. You can stuff your boarding passes in the front pocket quite easily, and it fits very nicely under a seat.
After buying this bag, I gave away two other bags it replaced.
Yes, it is that good of a bag!

Rated5out of5byKerryLfromGreat business travel bagI use this bag daily, but it gets its heaviest use when I travel, which is frequent. Great capacity and lots of pockets to organize stuff in. Separate padded computer bag with handle is wonderful for short simple meetings where I need little. Easily fits in airplane overhead compartment or under seat, even on commuter planes. Easily slips over handle of my wheeled carryon bag making travel a lot easier. I can fit 3-ring notebooks standing up and overlapping slightly in the main compartment. This bag holds so much I find myself taking more stuff than I need simply because I have the extra room. My only very minor gripe is that the waterbottle mesh is too small to easily fit a drink into.

Rated4out of5byCapt EHfromGood piece of gearI am an international pilot and needed a briefcase that is light weight and will stow in limited spaces. The capacity is good yet can be stowed in the overhead of an RJ and goes through airport security easily. The detachable laptop case is handy and allows the use of cabin storage space that would otherwise be too small for other bags.

Rated5out of5byPurdueboyfromTerrific BagThis bag is great. I used to carry 2 bags (1 for my laptop and cords and 1 for my binders, notepads, folders, tape measure, etc.). Now I can carry everything in one. The bag has room for my company laptop, power cords, camera, 2 charging cords for cell phone, 2 architects scales, pens, pencils, a tape measure, a binder, manila file folders, passport, and some notepads. I can carry everything I need for corporate travel in this bag. I have always been impressed with REI products. This is a well designed bag with room and good pockets.
