Bad Shoulder Strap Ruins Bag

Edward from Jupiter, FL– Verified Buyer

I work at a University and commute with a 14 inch Dell Vostro and many large books. I wanted a bag that expanded enough so that it could accommodate 4 inch thick philosophy books and my computer and would also last a long time. I was willing to spend up to $300 or so.

For the most part, this bag gets the job done. The one large pocket is great for my computer and the other accommodates two or three of my books. There are a few small zipper pockets for my jump drives and other accessories such as cell phones, pens, etc. The bag seems to be well built; standard fare for David King.

The biggest flaw in the bag is the strap. It is horrible.
At 5'9, 180lbs, athletic, I am average height, weight, etc. Yet, the strap (adjusted to the shortest length!) is so long that the bag hangs at my hip. It hangs so low, in fact, that when I kneel down to pick something off the floor, the bag gets "stuck" under my rear-end when I try to stand up. This is so frustrating that I removed the strap and attached a cheaper strap that is not leather from another bag. Now my bag looks incongruent.

"But surely I could simply adjust the strap more", you say. Well, no. If I wanted to adjust the strap, I would have to punch additional holes into it myself. I am a philosopher, not a tanner. I do not have the appropriate tool to do so. (I suppose I could use a philips screwdriver and a hammer to make holes but that would be ridiculous!)

Another problem is that there is no buckle in which to tuck the end of the strap! Therefore, even if I found someone to add holes, the strap's end would be too long necessitating the cutting of the additional material. This would create the problem that the strap's end would be open to the elements. Thus I would have to pay someone to sew it for me.

You can see where this is simply absurd. I should not have to add holes to shorten the bag's strap to a length appropriate for an average heighted person to wear comfortably. I cannot imagine what a much shorter person would go through.

You would think that David King Co. would be able to provide a decent strap.

Interestingly enough, I emailed David King and told them of my problem a month ago. I have not heard back.

Great product, yet sent w/interior rip

Steve from Pittsburgh, PA– Verified Buyer

Product is great and provides exactly what I wanted out of it, yet the manufacturer quite clearly--though possibly unbeknownst--sent it with an interior rip. Though seemingly minor, it will continue to increase in size...and due to the fact that I need it for college, I'm obviously not going to go through the hassle of sending it back to wait for a new one--which would obviously take awhile. Most likely I will have to sew it (something I am not particularly used to/good at doing).

That said, it is very expedient for my studies and fits my large-size 17" Macbook and has many pockets. The expandable function seemed odd at first being on the bottom, but it's actually useful when carrying books.
