Overall Product Rating:     

Love it! Fits all my Android devices and my 13" Chromebook. And my iPhone.

Well constructed product. Great value, For my preference, just a touch small, but exactly as advertised. Loads of pockets and well thought out features. Durable construction.

I haven't seen a ThinkTank product yet that I don't love. I just got the My 2nd Brain for the 13" MacBook Pro. With tighter airline carry on restrictions, the "personal item" must now be a slimline laptop case. This case definitely fits the bill, but holds an incredible amount of gear. I have the laptop, iPad, iPhone 6 Plus, as well as two external hard drives, connectors, cords, remotes, etc in an incredibly compact size. I only have two minor complaints. Under the features section it says there is a pass through so that it can rest on top of a roller. I think that feature must only come on the 15" and above, because there isn't one on mine. And #2 is that the shoulder strap only allows for vertical carry and not horizontal. Neither of these are significant to warrant a lower rating. It is definitely worth the money and the quality is second to none.
