Welcome to dickblick
The Prat Start S2000 Softside Backpack Portfolio is a shoulder strap portfolio that easily converts into a backpack. Made of heavyweight, weather-resistant canvas, the interior compartment offers protection against the elements for your artwork and supplies. The padded backpack shoulder straps tuck neatly inside a zippered pocket when not in use.
Exterior convenience features include a locking T-square pocket, a tube holder for transporting oversized artworks and drawings, and a large mesh pocket for holding brushes, paints, pens, and books.
A double-action, smooth-running zipper opens to reveal a reinforced, light gray interior and a pocket with a clear lining for ease of viewing the contents. The portfolio’s reinforced base offers additional support.
The 24"H × 27"W size accommodates 23½" × 26" sketch pads.

Good product, but not worth the cost.

Comments about Prat Start S2000 Softside Backpack Portfolios:
I bought this to hold drafting supplies for my interior design classes at school. After only having the product for a week the bungee straps which are meant to hold the storage tube have become unsewn along with the top handle. I would have wanted higher quality at the amount I purchased this portfolio case.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I am so glad that I bought this backpack!
from Lawrence, KS
I use the product on a daily basis to hold all my drawing supplies. As a petite woman, this has become a valuable asset. I have even had other students ask where I bought mine. The only downside is the fact that the small strap, above where the backpack straps are located, became unsewn on one side. It shouldn't be too difficult to fix, but I was quite infuriated when it happened.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

After less than one month of use the backpack strap pulled out of the rivet and and strap was terribly frayed making it impossible to fix. It was a great idea but backpack straps just could not handle the weight of all of the art supplies.

Got a defect...twice
from Cloverdale, CA
This is an attractive and useful portfolio, excellent for carrying your portfolio while bicycling. Unfortunately the first one I received split at a seam, right out of the box, due to fabric unraveling. It was not overloaded, it was very lightly loaded, it simply was not put together well on that seam. I got a second one and the exact same thing happened the first time it was used. Rather than replace again, I fixed both with a sewing machine. I am happy with the portfolios now but unhappy that I got two defects in a row.

necessary school supplies
Since I ride my bike to Art School I needed a way to carry large projects back and forth to work on. This Start S2000 Softside Backpack Portfolio is just right. I am so grateful to have found a great product.

Accommodates SOLTEK easel
Although the SOLTEK Easel is very durable I wanted a bag to accommodate it whilst travelling, to protect it from external damage.This bag achieves this with room to spare. Am impressed with the way in which backpack straps are concealed,additional storage areas; especially the large pocket which will provide room for a painting support and watercolour paper.
