ok but a few shortcomings
By wannabe painter
Comments about Royal & Langnickel Essentials Art Cargo Carry Bag:
First let me say this is a good quality bag that is sturdy and attractive with several pockets and slots and detachables and looks as if it would be quite useful. However, I've tried to use this bag a few times for various art classes and find that it just doesn't work for me. 1. It "flops over" easily and I have difficulty retrieving items. Have to either lay it flat on the floor or hang it from a hook, chair, etc. It's top heavy and a wider and a firmer bottom might help.2. It's simply not big enough! I can squeeze in an art board but the flap doesn't make it over the top so I can carry the bag by the handle. Once a pad is inside there's not much room left over for anything else. 3. The back pocket ought to be usable but I've yet to find a good purpose for it. It's not wide enough for paints or anything slightly bulky.4. The detachable brush bag is sturdy and long but not long enough for some of my brushes. 5. There's no logical place big enough for thinners, mediums, solvents, roll of paper towels, rags, etc. I was hoping this purchase would eliminate the need to carry along several totes of supplies but unfortunately it just doesn't meet my needs. I'd have no hesitation in recommending this to someone but with qualifications, namely that they carefully assess if the bag meets their needs.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Check the size before you buy
By Picky Watercolorist
from Portland, OR
I was looking for another plein air watercolor bag, and from the website's picture, it looked fine; however, it is ridiculously cumbersome because of its size and/or my height (5'4"), and the organizational sections are not suitable for watercolor. My watercolor compadres were not impressed with the bag either. Truly, I should have done a better job of checking out the dimensions when looking at the picture.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Better Bag to organize your art
from West Chester, PA
Serious artists need to be organized and this bag is large enough to handle canvas and easel. In addition there are multiple ways to stash your brushes. Like a business brief case, this canvas bag is durable for everything.
Perfect carry-all for an artist
from Springfield, VT
I have been looking for the perfect carrying case for my art supplies both for plein air and studio classes. The art cargo carrying bag is large enough to fit a half-sheet of watercolor paper, a board, and a full sized palette. Also there are several pockets that are roomy for organizing numerous art supplies, rain gear, and lots of extras. All of this is a great value.

I like the bag
from Dayton Ohio
I like the pockets especially the side ones as you can put items in them that you want to take in and out all the time.I would like for the bag to have had more depth. but all in all a really good bag to tote back and forth to my art class. Linda

Perfect for Plein Air painting!
from Pulaski, Iowa
Love the versatility of carrying this bag with the nice handle or shoulder strap that goes across the chest. It holds everything I need when plein air painting or traveling to a workshop.
