"I've found this bag to be pretty reliable so far - but a bag designed to carry such large laptops it could really do with a more comfortable strap, and the plastic clips that join the strap to the bag make me very very nervous... but they're yet to break so I won't judge yet."
_
"The strap clips onto 2 nylon D rings via fairly nice swivel clips clips."
_
"The plastic strap end clips squeak a lot when walking at any decent pace, it must be the swivels.. i suppose i might be able to lubricate it somehow to stop that.. they don't spin all the freely either."

Heavy

Heavy:
"EXCELLENT CASE STURDY NOT HEAVY AND DURABLE."
_
"-Doesn't work well with heavy loads(If you will only use it for the laptop it may work well)."
_
