I love a larger screen laptop for presentations, photo editing and streaming movies, so I often use a 17.3-inch screen laptop at school and work. But finding a professional bag that fits my 17.3-inch laptop is difficult, especially when carrying other gear. The Estarer Laptop Messenger Bag is made for both professionals and students and holds my large laptop and tablet, plus my gear, supplies, notebook, and water bottle. It’s roomy without being cumbersome or heavy and has numerous compartments and pockets to securely hold everything I need to take me through the day at from work to school.

CONSTRUCTION AND DESIGN
Made with a thick, durable, water-resistant canvas, it has both a top handle and a rugged adjustable shoulder strap, up to 25.3 inches in length, so the bag can be worn across the body if desired or hung by the shoulder.
The main compartment fits multiple books or up to a three-inch binder notebook in addition to the laptop compartment.
The stitching is well done with no loose threads and it is made with quality materials without shortcuts. For example, the connection between the bag and strap is metal, not plastic. The shoulder strap leather is well stitched and thick and bears the weight well.
The over-flap front pocket is especially useful for quick access to Photo ID, pens, key, and phone.
USES: WHAT THE BAG CAN HOLD
The laptop sleeve
There are so many compartments and pockets to keep items safe and secure and easily accessible in addition to the laptop compartment, including front and back pockets, side pockets for water bottles or thin thermos
It’s also useful as a travel bag or DSLR camera bag (in its’ own padded case), and the velcro and zip closures keep the bag contents safe.
The front of the bag has a secret thin zippered pocket to hold my phone or wallet, tablet or gloves. This pocket is hidden but accessible so it is a safe place to store such smaller items securely.
The back also has a full panel zippered pocket ideal for holding documents, important papers or presentations or even a thin tablet.
I was able to carry not only my laptop but a 3-inch binder notebook, a textbook, my tablet, and my water bottle all in separate compartments.
The front flap holds my ID in place so I can swipe scan into the secure access only buildings without having to remove my ID from the case, which is convenient when I am carrying coffee or rushing around work or school.
I like that I can carry everything I need for a full day of work or school or travel. There are two water bottle pockets which means I can carry a water bottle for during the day and another bottle for the gym, or a water bottle and a thin coffee thermos. This is more convenient than waiting in line for coffee before a class, yet the bottles are safely kept away from my laptop, papers, books, and equipment.
I could also fit a scarf in my bag in case the weather gets chilly.
The bag is highly durable, even when I overstuffed the bag, the shoulder strap bore the weight and the bag did not rip. The top handle is sturdy and comfortable to carry the bag without chafing.
The back could be used for an overnight trip. I could fit my makeup and toiletries into the back pocket, socks, spare t-shirt, flat shoes, tablet, small hairdryer, and my camera, etc.
I particularly like the double security of both the velcro over flap and the zippered top compartments to keep the contents of the bag secure from theft, loss, or the weather.
A highly versatile bag that can carry a 17.3 inch laptop, water bottles, paperwork, books, a notebook, a camera, a thermos, and boasts an abundance of pockets including an overlap with quick access to important items like the built-in key ring, pen holder, and ID holder, this water-resistant messenger bag is ideal for a college student or someone who travels a great deal for work. It is also very useful for someone who likes to work in a cafe and carry with them all the supplies they might need during the day. The rugged shoulder strap is adjustable, making it easy for both women or men of various heights to wear the messenger bag across the body for maximum ease and security.
