    Amazon Verified Purchase(http://www.amazon.com/gp/community-help/amazon-verified-purchase/183-9563774-6675136', ‘AmazonHelp’, ‘width=400,height=500,resizable=1,scrollbars=1,toolbar=0,status=1′);return false; “>What’s this?)

    I recently bought my first MacBook Pro and went hunting for a good bag that could hold a 17 inch laptop. I was wary of the low price, but now that I have the bag, I am simply thrilled with it.

    The design is perfect; simple, elegant and oddly futuristic with its muted colors, soft rounded shapes and contrasting textures. It also comes with a small removable bag for power cords and such, which is a nice touch. The brown is slightly lighter chocolate then pictured, which is an excellent compliment to the pale aqua accents.

    The strap is a good four inches wide, thicker then I have seen on most bags and evenly distributes the weight of its contents without digging into my shoulder. And while there is adequate padding inside the bag, I would still suggest picking up the matching laptop sleeve for the added security and protection. The mouse bag, which unzips to form a perfect mouse pad, is also a great item and extremely useful.

    There are a few drawbacks. The separating fabric walls of the two inside compartments are thin and a tad flimsy. Also, even a relatively thin computer (a Macbook Pro 17″ in my case, which is about as thin as it gets) is a tight fit. When used in conjunction with the matching Belkin sleeve for this bag, it won’t fit in the laptop compartment at all. The extra fabric on the sleeve (and there is a good two inches of it with my Macbook) spills out over the top and makes it impossible to close the zipper. I end up having to place my laptop in the front, unpadded compartment, or not use the sleeve at all, both of which are not good options.

    Also, once you have the laptop in, there is little room for anything else. I find I can get my Macbook and case, along with the power adapter, a travel surge protector, a Bluetooth mouse, and an Airport Express packed in with some difficulty and more pressure on my laptop then I would like.

    This review is from: Belkin 17-Inch Messenger Bag (Jet/Cabernet) (Personal Computers)

    This is a great bag – it is thin and not bulky, there are plenty of pockets, my 17″ laptop fits perfectly, and it has room for a few files and the necessary cords and peripherals.

    My one frustration with the bag is that the adjustable strap only adjusts a little. I like to have the strap be pretty short so I can carry the bag near my low back while I ride my bike, and I cannot decrease the strap length enough to do that. This also means that when shorter people carry the bag over their shoulder, it hangs really low. This defect makes the bag uncomfortable to carry.

    I shopped around for a really nice notebook bag that would accommodate a 17-inch laptop and was inexpensive. Where I live, I don’t have a lot of options for shopping around, so I looked for one online. Out of all the places I looked, every one gave this Belkin Laptop bag excellent reviews, so I ordered it and I was not disappointed.

    The area of the bag that houses the laptop is well padded. There is plenty of room in the front pockets to carry a book or two as well as other things you might need at work or school. It comes with a separate pouch for the power cords so they are not lose in the bag.

    The only thing that I found wrong with the bag is, I bought the chocolate/tourmaline colored bag. I thought the chocolate color would be a darker brown. It’s more of a medium to dark brown. My husband actually like the color, so gave him the bag and ordered the jet/cabernet for myself.

    We are very impressed by this Belkin bag and would recommend this product to anyone.
