Best. Bag. Ever.
A friend gave me this bag and it’s my all time favorite. It can fit a surprising amount of gear, it holds my computer securely, its lightweight, and I like how easy it is to access everything. This bag beats backpacks because things are so easy to access.

I have been using this as a messenger bag (primarily) for a couple of months now, and am very pleased with it. This is a rugged piece, and very serviceable. Although this is more structured than I am used to, access through the top is a big selling point for me. The number of pockets inside are great feature.

Why did I wait so long for you? Simply fantastic.
I use a Dell Precision 3520 laptop for work, also carry around a large planner, 2 large books for the CFA exam, various items such as 2 phones, a Surface Pro 4, the lptp charger, a couple of bound Black & Red notebooks, various folders with work and personal stuff. The bag handles it easily.

I was concerned, that the front magnet/flap was a bit gimmicky, but lo and behold it's functional & easy.

The laptop is snug when putting it in the padded pocket, however it's nothing that causes me concern once it's closed. There is plenty of protection in the compartment where the padded sleeve is so I could probably use that instead then put the Surface in the padded pocket. You'll need to measure your laptop (as said in prior reviews). MR should consider adding a little more wiggle room in the next version if that's possible.

No concerns about backpack straps load bearing capacity. They stow very easily. When expanded briefcase handles are still easy to use.

Unboxing: Greatest Bag!!!!!!!
You can not go wrong with this bag! My favorite and probably the best briefcase of all time! The only things I would change on the bag is the front pocket, wish the zippers came all the way down to the quick release magnet. Also the shoulder strap connecters/clips and rings that those connect to seem to be really cheap plastic (hope these do not break). But over all GREAT! Will do another review on how it holds up once I deploy on a fire assignment.

It is missing straps on the back so it can sit on the mission wheely without falling off. It would be a 100% buy if it would have those. Also it is a bit on the heavy side...

Favorite EDC Bag
Purchased about a year ago as a new office bag, and it's become my go-to for everyday and weekend use. As a briefcase, it's very convenient and I'm able to easily store my 15" laptop and everyday necessities. Expanded, I can usually pack enough for a three day business trip and will deploy the backpack straps for help with the added weight. Even fully expanded I can fit this underneath the seat in front of me on flights. Feels much larger than 22L.

Great bag
I've had the bag for a few months now and overall have really enjoyed it. I use it mostly for work and it easily holds all the essentials (laptop, papers, book, water bottle) with room to spare. Solid construction (as expected) and magnetic buckle on the front is pretty cool. The laptop compartment initially didn't feel cushioned enough but after using it I think it's perfect. My surface easily slides in and out and is held securely. The internal pockets keep things well organized though I agree that a zipper or some kind of closure for some of them may be a nice addition.

Other areas for improvement - The shoulder strap is extremely squeaky and I replaced it already. A removable, padded strap with hardware to match the zipper pulls and buckle would be great (even if it was an optional cost). Also, the outside has basically no lash points. While I understand this is a briefcase, a place to clip a water bottle or strap on a jacket would be a nice addition.

Very Nice, just wish it were a bit bigger.
Just received my 3 Way Expandable in black. Satisfied with the construction. I would like to see this 2.5" longer and 2.5" taller. 15" Macbook fits but snug. Not a chance on my wider laptops. Would like to see a better strap with snaps as well as a few more internal pockets in the front compartment. Magnetic latch is awesome! I'm going to give it a go.

Perfect bag, for all the facets of my 60/30/10 life
As a self-identited young professional who see’s himself as 60% disgruntled veteran, 30% yuppie, and 10% hipster this bag is perfect for me. From wearing a suit and tie (slim fit of course) to weekend trips to the downtown library and coffee shop on my fixed gear bike this bag is perfect for me.

The ability to switch to between a shoulder strap or back pack straps has been handy. Many on here complain about the shoulder strap... but I heard a guy said that the SEC told the owners of the strap wasn’t week, that Mystery Ranch could face anti-trust law violations for making the perfect bag.

The magnetic buckle is a cool feature, when I am at the coffee shop and can’t get to my wallet I leave a debit card in my bag and the magnetic closure makes for a quick seal as I take my artisan Sanka back to table.

I have been a Mystery Ranch fan since my first tour in Iraq, became a loyalist in Afghanistan, and now a small business leader, you have been there for all my transitions

Not as big as advertised
This bag would be great if it were big enough. Mystery Ranch claims it's 17 inches long, but the one I received is under 16 inched long and does not fit any of my laptops. The expandability is a great idea, but the way the flap zips does not actually create much additional space when expanded. It could be a great bag if it were significantly larger. With its current size it's not very useful.
