I travel for business regularly and I have been looking for a messenger style bag for a long, long time. I need something that is semi professional, but is functional. The biggest issue is the Velcro that seals the bag... - I didn't think this was a big deal until you're in a meeting or conference and you need to open the bag... I dread doing this. Like another reviewer, they should have used magnets. If you're not going to take this to meetings, seminars, or classes, I think this bag is pretty solid. - Like another reviewer mentioned, the material is prone to getting things stuck to it. I constantly find myself dusting it off. It's like a magnet for dust, hair, fluff etc. I wish they used a different material. Functionally, it does everything I want, plus it has a luggage strap at the back which is convenient. The orange on the interior is loud, but it doesn't bother me, even when i'm on a business meeting, it would have been nicer if it were a grey or a more subtle colour, but not a huge deal for me. I thought I found the perfect travel bag, sigh. My search continues.
