This review is from: Everki Black 15.6" Track Laptop Messenger Bag Model EKS618
Pros: This is definitely a high quality bag. I commute to work/school on my motorcycle everyday, so the "reflective panel" on the flap was actually a big selling point for me.
The plush lining for the laptop and tablet slots is a really nice touch. The bag has never come open unintentionally and everything seems really well protected. I love the dedicated powerbrick pocket.
The bag expands well. I can fit my 15.6" laptop (laptop is perfectly snug) & powerbrick, several notebooks, a textbook or two, coffee mug, and water bottle (plus pens, pencils, dry erase markers, etc) in there everyday without the bag looking like it's busting at the seams.
Cons: There are a few minor things that could've been done better.
The strap is more satchel length that messenger back length. Even with it fully tightened the bag sits at hip level. Since I prefer my back to sit way up on my back (motorcycle commuter, so I'm sure this applies to bicycle commuters as well) I just used some zip ties to take up the extra slack.
There's a strap on the inside that goes over the laptop and tablet slots. The velco patch on the strap is really small, and the strap is just a smidge too long, so it barely makes contact on the patch it connects to when pulled tight. Since my laptop fits perfectly in it's slot the strap is superfluous so it's not a problem. But if it had an extra inch of velcro or was an inch or two shorter it'd make more sense.
The "reflective" panel on the flap isn't really all that reflective. I turned off the lights and shined a maglight at it. Being neon orange it's still high visibility, but it doesn't actually reflect light like in the photo.
Other Thoughts: I wasn't sure whether the Everki buckles were pros or cons. They take a little while to get used to, but they've never come open when they weren't supposed to. Now that I've had the bag for a while they seem completely natural.
The pros for this bag are really solid pros, and the cons are more minor annoyances than anything else. This is still probably the best laptop bag I've ever owned and I highly recommend it.
