Great everyday laptop bag
I've had this bag for a little over three years now, and it's stood up well over time. It looks great, it's super functional, and it's proven itself to be more durable than a Timbuk 2 that I had previously used. Its simple design leaves little to wear out. The closing "flaps" are unique and don't leave any buckles to break. I use it for carrying my gear to and from the office every day. That means an umbrella, files, papers, and a clunky laptop about half the time. The shoulder strap could use a more secure way of keeping it's intended length (it tends to slip longer over time), but otherwise no complaints on this bag whatsoever.

Great bag, strap needs some help
I love the design of this bag. It is my everyday work bag, and it works equally well for business meetings or weekend trips.
The design of the pockets, internal organizer, and especially the laptop sleeve are all great, and it's just big enough to use for light weekend trips.
The only problem is the design of the strap. The internal strap adjustment is nifty and contributes to the good looks, but when the bag is loaded it slips--slowly, but inevitably, the bag heads down past your butt into annoyance land.
I fixed this by pinning the fabric strap with a large safety pin, but I would have preferred if Nau had solved this one already.
Overall great bag, but just be aware of the strap issue.
