It doesn’t get more modern than this. This impressive bag is made of durable stamped PVC, with a pattern that resembles a city grid from 3,000 ft. Perfect for the busy business traveler. Loaded with convenient pockets for all your essentials – including a smartphone pocket in the flap.
I got this bag at a really good sale price, so I was pleasantly surprised when it arrived and I saw how gorgeous and well made it was. It is a sturdy, not stodgy, bag for everyday use and it would be great for travel. This is replacing a black canvas briefcase and a smaller computer sleeve and it's doing a great job doing both jobs. Just a thought: how about offering brighter colors, too? This bag in red would be a killer accessory! The majority of the products I've purchased from Franklin Planner have been terrific in terms of style and quality and this Matrix bag is no exception. Well worth the money.

Loved this bag. It was very professional looking, had great compartments for organizing all my business essentials for travel. It was easy to use, comfortable, and just looked great. I received many compliments on it. The bad part was that I only was able to use it about 5 times until the strap completely ripped from the bag. I noticed the area where the strap is secured to the bag was starting to rip and separate from the bag around the fourth time I used it. It was not under warranty anymore, but Franklin Covey CS recommended I take it to a luggage repair shop. I did. They put two more metal rivets on each side to prevent further tearing and add more support. The next time I used it, the entire strap secure area ripped entirely off of the bag. See attached pics. It is not like I overstuffed the bag- I carried my 15 inch laptop, a porwer cord, a yellow pad notebook, some pens, business cards, etc. and a manilla folder with a few documents. My guess is that the PVC plastic just isn't strong enough to hold what the bag's intended use is for. Very disappointing. Like I said everything else I loved about this bag. Now it is just garbage.
