Mine ($6) is an older model than the one shown in the above URL, and probably no longer available. It has the wheels set on the wider side, which is great (I have had narrow wheelbases tip while towing), but Tutto Luggage ( has a slew of portable office, craft, or sewing bags currently made that have all kinds of inner-pocket coolitude.

Mine has side pockets that zip open to lie flat. Each side is different. One side has a binder with large and small plastic pockets for craft or print material, and/or CDs/DVDs. The other has 2 velcro on/off mesh zippered pouches. When I do a presentation, I also am expected to supply nutritious snacks, so that is what will go in there-- protein bars (meal replacement), cereal bars, dried fruit, etc.

The large inner core of the case has 3 sections-- a narrow central section will hold laptop in padded sleeve and power cord. The 2 outer ones will hold soft binders of curriculum material. One of the side pockets (each has also an inner section) has room for singalong booklets or songsheets. The other-- my Kindle with more songs already on it to lead.

The top on mine is a heavy flap-over with that logo I can velcro over (have the velcro, LOL) hinged on the wider side. Under it are gadget pockets of various sizes, and a few more zippered areas.

Portable sales/workshop/FUN.

A large laptop case Hardi gave me is a backup item. With that added I can also carry a pair of speakers to run off the lappie, and a tiny piano keyboard (or plucked psaltery) I already have, for opening pitches-- a capella songleading.
