This tote has alot going for it but it has 2 major showstoppers which will make it part of my Goodwill Donation this week. I love the padded part for your laptop, I love the colors, I love the size and all of the little compartments and it holds alot.
Now for the showstoppers: 1) it closes with only two metal twist closures that don't stay closed so it continually pops open, and 2) there needs to be a handle attached to the top of the bag in addition to the shoulder strap. I can't tell you how many times I've grabbed for it - especially when you put your laptop in it, if it's in the car or somewhere and starts to tip, there's no place to grab it.
If it had a fixed handle to the top of the bag in addition to the shoulder strap and a secure single snap closure (too fussy with the two metal closures) I would give this bag 5 stars.
