I bought the Eco Messenger for my son who was going to start college. He wanted a sturdy, roomy bag for his large laptop, books, notebooks, folders, etc. After researching other bags I chose the Eco bag. My son likes the heavy duty fabric that protects his laptop. Also, it has a good amount of space for class books and extras. Both of us are happy with this bag.
Bag works great for my work laptop. It's hard to find a bag that will hold a 17" laptop. This one works great! The shoulder strap is nicely padded, which is great when you're carrying around a heavy laptop! I can fit everything I need in the bag as well.
There's not a lot to say about Mobile Edge products, the name speaks for itself. The ECO Messenger Laptop Bag is as tough as they come and is constructed out of the same material as my deployment gear. I believe that I will receive years of excellent service from my bag.
