    Great bag but where is the removable pouch? First things first: has my removable pouch been stolen? coz i can’t find it. 😉 Maybe it’s just another amazon error in the product description.If anyone can find the removable pouch, let me know.Down to the proper review:There’s no point repeating all the great features mentioned by others. You’ve read the other reviews: you know all about the fact that it’s pretty much the only bag guaranteed to fit the large 17″ laptops. In fact Dell sell it on their website as a bag that fits their 17inchers.Here’s a feature no one else has mentioned so far: unlike the Columbia Cyberpack, it has a plastic [fake leather] waterproof base so u can confidently place it on a wet/messy floor.Someone mentioned the zippers not having zipper flaps to stop rain getting in. But we all know that those flaps over the zips can be awkward. I’m looking at my bag right now and i can see that there are flaps BENEATH the zipper on each side. So for rain to get in, it would have to get thru the zipper then thru the flap/ribbing directly [like 3mm] underneath. It’s hard to describe what it is but it is water proof material beneath each side of the zip that closes together like drawn curtains when the zip is zippered shut.NOT MENTIONED B4:One nice visual aid is that the zippers for the main compartment are noticeably bigger than the others.Also there is an apparently flimsy handle at the back behind the main handle. It’s to hang the empty/lightly filled bag up on a hook. It took me about a minute to work out what it was for. :Obtw: the main handle is totally over-engineered but gorgeous: it is a very soft plastic and fabric handle surrounding a a steel wire handle which is itself coated in plastic. It’s one mean looking handle.One thing, I’ve noticed is that one of the shoulder straps is loose around the length adjuster and i have to keep tightening it up or the one for the right shoulder keeps getting longer and longer. I’m thinking of stitching it into the desired position but because i go to the gym and have aspirations of getting an upper body like John Cena’s, i fear that if i stitch the shoulder straps into the present desired position that when [not if ;)] i get huge it would no longer fit across my back and I’d have to unstitch the straps and readjust to fit around my hopefully huge back. As you can imagine: i hope i do encounter this problem. It would be a small price to pay for looking like John Cena. ;)btw: In comparison with the Columbia Cyberpack [a laptop backpack for up to 15-Inchers], that i also own, it doesn’t have the Cyberpack’s reflective elements useful for when walking at night.Perhaps the quick pocket [the red-lined pouch near the handle] should have been made of luminous material on it’s inside [instead of the red lining] to help find things in the dark when outside. I suggest keeping a small torch inside the small pocket inside the quick pocket.The organiser/organizer panel in the front compartment elicits mixed feelings:Pros:I has two slots for credit cards. GoodA good mesh pocket to hold a battery powered shaver.A good pen holding pocket.Cons:It has three pockets. good. but they are on top of each other so if you use all three it cause a bit of a bulge in the front pocket.Also, there is a clip for key rings but the thing it so short it’s hard to find and a lot more awkward than what it should be.I suggest buying the “Victorinox 1679500 Army Knife Swiss Champ” to fit in the organiser panel. It has a pocket to fit it.SUMMARY OF POCKETS/COMPARTMENTS:TEN EXTERNAL COMPARTMENTS/POCKETS:U CAN SEE THEM FOR YOURSELVES. 🙂 But you’d have to go on other websites. So here is a summary:1: front compartment [contains organiser panel]2: book compartment [directly behind front compartment]3: main bag compartment [behind book compartment]4: a top ‘quick pocket’ deep enough to fit an open hand in up to your wrist5: laptop compartment6: left mesh pocket [un-zippered]7: right mesh pocket [un-zippered]8: left diagonal side pocket9: right diagonal side pocket10: pocket on the left shoulder strap that is good for holding a small mobile phone, mp3 player etc. I find it very useful to put a bus ticket in.ORGANISER PANEL [INSIDE FRONT COMPARTMENT][a group of small pockets for stationary etc]: * LEFT POCKET: holds pens and has two slots for credit card sized cards * CENTRE TRIPLE DECKER POCKET: three pockets on top of each other * RIGHT MESH POCKET: large enough to hold a small shaver * red zippered pocket behind the organiser panel * hidden key ring clip [A SORT OF BAG EQUIVALENT OF A DVD EASTER EGG ;)]…
