    Comments about Eagle Creek Strictly Business Brief:

    The reasons this otherwise glorious bag is not getting five stars:

    1) I'd prefer a separate zippered compartment for the computer.
    2) It Isn't as cleverly organized as the size-small laptop backpack that Eagle Creek has discontinued (tragically).
    3) In particular, I'm missing the side pockets for the water bottle and sunglasses. But I get that this is a dressier, briefcase-style bag, so I didn't weigh this particular objection very heavily.
    4) The painful shoulder strap needs some padding. Eagle Creek did far better with the backpack I'm replacing, which cost considerably less than this one. The handles are long enough to use on the shoulder if one isn't wearing a coat or jacket, but they are also uncomfortable. I'm finding I need the shoulder strap to carry this bag, so immediate modification was necessary.
    5) The toggled zipper pulls look flimsy, as though they will break; there aren't back-up metal pulls. I imagine this can be fixed as needed, but they should be sturdier at this price.

    I am mourning the decline of my wonderful small computer-handbag Eagle Creek backpack, which met with some glittery gold paint and is finally wearing out at the straps. After several years, it no longer looks crisp, and it has never looked terribly professional. And if one inserts a 13-inch Macbook in that model, there is only limited room for other things. It was cleverly designed for maximum versatility for a limited amount of stuff, yet unpacking the thing to get to items at the bottom of the bag was annoying. It was marketed for a 15-inch laptop. That's hard to imagine. Maybe with little to nothing else in the bag.

    Now for this new bag. It's light and sturdy (except for that shoulder strap). For the most part, I'm quite pleased. It looks professional, if not dressy. So that's a clear improvement over the small computer backpack. One could bring this to a special event and not feel too casual, which is how I felt about the other bag. It's also, due to its briefcase shape, super easy to get to everything in the bag, also a clear improvement. It's about the same size as the small backpack, which is the size I need, so no complaints there. This is not a large bag and would be perfect for a 13-inch laptop. I would not recommend it for 15-inch laptops if you want to carry a lot of other stuff with it. But it would be okay just for the gear alone and a book and some files.

    What I can fit in this bag:

    In the outer pocket: USB cords and odds and ends for the computer and my camera. (It's a smallish pocket.)

    In the internal pocket: lozenges, tissues, and other personal items. (About the same size as the outer pocket.)

    In the computer pocket: 11-inch Macbook Air (in a protective sleeve), 10-inch iPad (also in a sleeve).

    In the tablet sleeve: Kindle (It's big enough for a large iPad but not sturdy until secured with the velcro strap that also secures the computer.)

    Two gadget sleeves: iPhone, and Lumix point and shoot camera.

    Two pens, each in its own slot.

    In the main compartment, contents of my purse, file folder pouch, sunglasses, computer cord pouch.

    I'm a writer and take my gear with me everywhere I go. This bag looks great and is the perfect size. It will fit under the seat as a carry-on. The shoulder strap problem is easily remedied by buying a guitar strap gel pad for about $12.

    In a perfect world, I would love it if Eagle Creek would re-issue the small-sized laptop backpack that was so well reviewed several years ago. It's such a great bag, and its problems could be fixed easily enough. Maybe dress it up a bit, improve access to gear in the main compartment. Those of us with 11 to 13-inch Macbook Airs need a bag in between the tablet bags and the sturdier backpacks, and we need to be able to take the bags to meetings and receptions without looking out of place. I love Eagle Creek stuff. Hope you can and will address this niche in the market.

    Seriously, though, this bag is a workable and attractive compromise, and it will serve my purposes well enough. I'm glad to have it.

    Comments about Eagle Creek Strictly Business Brief:

    I used this on airplane trips on multiple airlines and it fits beautifully under every seat--even the small storage area often found under aisle seats. The computer fit is snug but it worked for mine. The rest of the bag is very roomy. I was able to fit my computer, my work papers, my quart-size bag of liquids, a small purse, and another small bag (maybe 5x4x3?) holding some carry-on essentials. The shoulder strap needs a shoulder pad--it gets twisted and can dig into your shoulder. There is not a dedicated area for papers; the outside pocket is too small. and there is no divider for papers inside the bag. If they add a shoulder pad and make the outside pocket big enough to accommodate 8-1/2 x 11 papers, this bag will be perfect!
