A good bag to go to school

I have purchased this bag a year ago. This is very suitable for me to place my ipad, stationary and books into it and travel to school just use one bag. It is very convenient. The bag has let my shoulder more comfort as they have a special design that to relief the pressure and not easy to stay a redness mark on my skin. It is great!

I enjoy using them properly

I use Bravo x sling, Bravo sling max, Elements backpack pro and Alpha Messenger for my daily commute. Alpha messenger is convenient when you have a small amount of luggage but need A4 documents.

Excellent mais…

Très bon design, la qualité est superbe. Très confortable. Toute une journée de travail avec déplacements en bus et métro, charge à 8kg sans aucun souci. Mais pour quelques euros de plus, je trouve les autres finitions plus originales.

The perfect bag for me1

The size of this bag is perfect; it can fit my 14" laptop, my A4 notebook, my switch, some cables, a charger, two 25000mAh Anker power banks, pens, pencils, ruler, my wallet, my keys, my phone as well as a mouse, there is still plenty of room for more stuff if needed and is comfortable to wear. Safe to say, I will be using this bag for a long time. Very Good!

Good quality bag, just a hair too small for a Steam Deck

The bag is of good quality and decent storage. I can use it for general carrying of documents and tech. If it were just an inch wider, it would hold a JSAUX Steam Deck case comfortably while being able to use the bag's accessory pockets. As-is, it's a tight fit for my SD case.

Beautiful bag as always, but smaller than expected

Alpaka makes A-grade gear, super high quality, no doubt. But I expected this bag to be larger than the cross body sling version I already have, and frankly it feels smaller. For $140 I'm a bit disappointed, and already tossed the packaging. Needs to be a little bigger. Otherwise fantastic quality and appearance.

Nice, but...

It's perfect, other than the strap is too short and attached in a way that makes it hard to find a replacement for and the main latch is difficult to open while wearing the bag. Please offer a longer replacement strap so I can wear this the way I want to wear it.

Pretty good

Well made. It's quite small, but big enough for me. The magnetic closure took time to get used to, but once you get it, it's great. Biggest complaint is the strap. Very short, and slips off the shoulder.

The pouch for power cord is too small and affect those with UK plugs.

You’ll find better, keep shopping.

I have never even taken it out of the house. The tags are still on it as a matter of fact. It’s in a closet where it will sadly stay. Do you want it back? Seriously. I’ll mail it too you. It’s a very well made bag that does nothing well. The strap is too short and restrictive. The latch is way too hard to manipulate. It’s tucked under a flap for some reason. Not enough pockets, etc. Just try a Tom Bihn bag or a Timbuk2 bag and you’ll see the difference.
