Great bags – stylish and a little quirky. I love them. Best of all the is the FANTASTIC customer service. I managed to tear off a handle (long story and entirely my fault…) and Tim responded immediately with a replacement. Just about to buy my third model.

This bag can hold everything I need from my freelance design work including laptops and accessories. The strap distributes the weight well and have used it on other bag as it more confutable. This bag is also very good for caring DSL cameras and lenses.
