Great bag! I took it as my carry on for a 5 hour flight the day after it arrived, and there were zero issues. Was open to spending a bit more for a sturdy, quality laptop bag after having gone through multiple 'standard issue' computer bags over the years. This bag is absolute top quality, and now having had it for several months, I'm confident it will be with me for several more years. The stitching is quality, the straps and handles are solid, and the leather breaks in beautifully. Highly recommend, and couldn't be happier with this purchase. Thank you!
I am beginning my 59th year as a university professor, and this is my perfect bag! I can fit all my books and papers in and I love the way it looks. This bag is not only beautiful, it is beautiful to use.
Has a real vintage feel to it and very classy.
I bought this for my boyfriend, and I do believe it was his favorite christmas gift this year. He kept coming back to it to finish unwrapping all the fixtures, adjust the strap, and look at it again and again. He had already "moved" into it before the day was done.
It really is beautiful; fully lined in canvas and sturdy full-grain leather with tons of compartments. He is able to carry his laptop in the middle padded compartment, along with other papers and accessories. There is even a pen-holder on the inside, along with 3 other zippered compartments on the inside and outside, and two smallish pockets that are capable of holding a large cellphone or other similarly-sized incidentals inside the quick-release cover. The outside middle pocket is buckled without a quick release as hidden by the other front buckles. The rivets feel like they go through all of the leather, but are hidden on the inside by the canvas lining.
He. Loves. It. Great buy! It truly is beautiful. And yes, it smells like leather. Because it is.
This leather briefcase/messenger bag is very well made! We were not sure what to expect when it arrived, but we were not disappointed. The attention to detail was evident as soon as we opened the box. The bag itself was beautiful, and was exactly what we were hoping to get. The leather is stiff, but I am sure it will soften with use (and actually look even better). We are very pleased with this purchase!
