The pockets are roomy and give you a variety of storage options. This ECOSUSI messenger bag has an unassuming style with great looking leather accents for a little extra character. The seams are stitched very well and the straps adjust easily to fit your needs.
The shoulder strap works well but the padding is a little thin. You will also need to check the size of your laptop against the internal compartment. A larger format laptop might not fit in the padded compartment, which defeats the point of getting a nice padded bag for your gear.

It has easy open buckles rather than magnets that need to be lined up, or old-school buckles that take time to open and close. The top handle is a nice addition to make it easier to grab, other higher end bags do not always have this and can be a little cumbersome to use without the shoulder strap.
This bags shoulder strap does have some padding but it is not as thick and soft as other with some of its competitors. Depending on how far and long this bag will be on your shoulder, it might need a little extra to keep it comfortable.

This is a good mid-range bag that will make your commute or day on campus much less of a hassle. With a bag that can handle the daily grind and won’t show wear and tear on the canvas you can focus on the important things.
