abunda_amazon_reviews Bag broke apart 9 months after purchase. For a bag that costs over $200, I would've expected the bag to at least last a year, ideally longer. I've contacted customer support–hopefully they will send a replacement. I should also note that this is already the SECOND Nomatic bag I've been through. The first bag I received was obviously already used by somebody, and was missing the reacting key cord and the sunglasses case. The support staff was quite incompetent; they basically told me "oh well, there's nothing we can do about the bag that is missing advertised features other than give you a refund." All I wanted was an exchange, and somehow that was quite difficult for them to manage. Given the struggles the first time around with Nomatic support, I am guessing they will not be able to manage the damaged bag. 😣 It's a pity, because the bag is nice–I just wish it worked and that I didn't have to keep contacting their support team. The bag also does not sit up straight as it appears to in all of the promotional videos (true for both bags I've received).;;Reviewed in the United States on September 29, 2018;;2.0 out of 5 stars;;Bag broke apart in a matter of months.;;Heather M.;;;I'm an IT professional that really appreciates a well organized laptop / gear bag.

It's the only bag I've used that I didn't need some other carry pouch inside to help organize or carry items. While I might change a little bit in the design if I could, the design works well. I can carry everything, and can eliminate another bag I used for some other items. I honestly can't say enough good about the pockets and organization in this bag.

This is not a long term bag. I should have known, as I had similar issues with their 40L Travel Bag. Waterproof: 0/5 Are you kidding me? The one day I use this bag, it was raining. It wasn't torrential downpour, but a solid steady rain. I walked from my car in the parking lot to the office door. That was it, and that was all it took. In the approx 20-30 meters/yards from car to door, the backpack leaked. I get to my desk, wipe off the outside of the bag before I set it down, open it.

I grew enamored of this bag after reading about it and comparing it to many others. It's expensive! but the customizations make it worthwhile. I love opening the main pocket flat, I really like the front pocket, and all the little organizational tabs and pockets are amazing.

It's also hard to tell but this is truly a laptop back pack for work or commuting and more of an "office on the go" bag. If that's what you need it will probably do its job well and serve you admirably. I was looking for a versatile heavy duty day travel back pack and this just doesn't work for that purpose. Things are not easily accessible on the go but would work better if fully unzipped and butterflied open in a coffee shop or conference table. Lastly, up close I found the bag to be a little boring.
