Received bag today. Went through the bag pocket by pocket so I knew what was where and to develop a game plan for loading. I recently transitioned (retired) from the Air Force and have started a job as Faculty at a university. I have loaded the bag with my iPad, accessory key board, 2 textbooks, pens, pencils, and extra tablet/ledger book (you know...the green pocket ledger book!). Will also probably dig up a flashlight to add for contingency. Also has a pocket for concealed carry, but there is no holster with this bag (5.11 sells one with mixed reviews, so not sure on that). I was looking for a combo briefcase and shoulder bag so I can look more professional and less tactical.... I think this bag, in black, will meet all my desires/needs!!! HEAVY duty construction. 2 inch padded adjustable shoulder strap, number of pockets.... I would not hesitate to use this in a deployment OR to the University. I do not anticipate any negative comments from me for this bag.
