“It has an adjustable camera section at the bottom, area for you to store combs, clipper attachments, clippers and shears safely as well as a laptop sleeve, two bottle sleeves, and a whole main compartment. I love that the weight distributes vertically, so it doesn’t make you feel like you’re tilting forward or backwards a la summer camp days. It’s not a small investment for a bag but I have zero regrets — I have used it for travel on planes, trains as well as the subway.”
