Great replacement for a conventional briefcase. Main compartment is great for electrics and paperwork, even an artists larger sketch-pad. Main issue with brief sling is the front zipper compartment and the small pocket are not tapped zippers...if main pocket has tapped zipper-please make all the zippers tapped. Dont feel comfortable putting anything in those pockets during a snow storm or a rain storm. Big waste of space because there is some cool organization stuff in there. Strap was missing from the bag on arrival, but, costumer service sent me a replacement strap so that's a point on the plus side.
