i bought the 256 in black about 6 months ago and have been happy with it, although i took off the removable strap on day 1 as i use it as a casual briefcase for work.
yesterday i went on an interstate business trip, so decided to use the strap for the first time at the airport. 2 initial observations:
1. holy shit this thing is uncomfortable.
2. holy shit this thing is waaaay too long (i'm 6'1).
when i got home i noticed some of the areas around the padding had torn...
