The Radical Messenger Bag is designed like many other Messenger bags. There is a large fold over flap that goes over the front of the bag. Krusell has added nice decorative designs on the Radical Messenger Bag series. Inside is a large, padded compartment with a velcro securing strap for up to 15.4 " laptop. In front of that compartment is another compartment with two pockets which is large enough to hold files, Smartphones, chargers - whatever you might need to tote around.
In front of that is a smaller, velcro slot which is great for software, notes or files and in front of that is a smaller zip compartment for any other smaller accessory.
In the back of this bag is yet another velcro pouch for storage.Versatility:
As you can see by all the various pockets and enclosures - this is a very versatile bag. I could fit my new 15.4" laptop, charger, files, books, pads , pens and BlackBerry and accessories all very comfortably in this bag.Craftsmanship:
I have used many laptop bags over the years - the craftsmanship on the Krusell bag really impressed me. The main material is heavy weight ballistic nylon. The stitching was very secure. The padding inside was certainly protective for my computer. The shoulder strap was adjustable and. most importantly, comfortable to carry.Style:
This is a very cool bag - they are unisex. Some colors (like the Pink and the White) might not go over so well in the boardroom - but the Black and the Blue and others would work fine and make you feel a little more stylish.Overall Conclusions:
This is a very nice case. I have always been impressed with the quality of Krusell cases and this one is no exception. It adds a little more style than most Laptop bags and provides good protection to your valuable investment.
Final Grade: APros: Nice Styling, good craftsmanship, good value
Cons: Some color choices are not quite as "unisex" as others
