Small yet roomy enough to fit a 15" Macbook Pro
I was looking for something smaller than the Touring bag that I could use as a daily commuter to work. Enter the Roll Top bag. It's small enough to be portable and usable daily, but has enough to pack inside most essentials that I need.
Inside there's a single zippered pocket to fit an ipad air, or kindle. NOTE: There's no padding in the bag, so I'd recommend to use some kind of separator to pad between the back of the bag and whatever is in zippered pocket and/or between the laptop and the back of the bag. The bag does come with a waterproof cover but there's no special pocket where it's stowed away, unless you'd like to stash it in the zippered pocket in the inside.
It perfectly fits the purpose that I need-- Carry my daily essentials to and from work. Here's what I pack, still with about 1/4 - 1/3 if the bag left to spare:
- 1/4" foam spacer (between laptop and back of bag)
- 15" Macbook Pro Retina
- Macbook Power adaptor
- Spare brompton innertube
- 10oz Insulated Thermos food jar (for breakfast)
- Eyeglasses in eyeglass case
- Bose Quietcomfort headphones in case
When carrying the above, the size of the bag overall is 16" wide x 10.5" tall x 4.75" thick, so it's overall footprint is nice and compact!
I can't comment yet on how it performs in the rain as it's currently still Summer, but all in all it's definitely a great purchase!
