Will my device fit?
The Device Fit on this item is: Up to 17 Inch Laptops
Not sure if your device will fit into this leather bag? Here we’ll show you how to find out step by step:
- Get something to measure your device with. A tape measure will work great.
- Find the bottom left corner of your device screen.
- Now, follow the screen with your eyes until you reach the top right corner of the screen.
- Take a tape measure and carefully measure the distance from the bottom left corner to the top right corner of the screen.
- Measure only the screen part. Ignore the frame or the black edge around the screen (that's called the bezel).
- Write down the number you measured and round down to the nearest whole number. E.g. 15.6” becomes 15” and 17.2” becomes 17”. This is your screen size in inches.
- Compare this number to the Device Fit number above.
- If the number you measured is smaller than or equal to the Device Fit number above, then it fits - great!
- If the number you measured is larger than the Device Fit number above, then it won’t fit comfortably. We recommend going back through our collection of bags and filtering by the Device Fit number you need.
I measured my laptop screen size and rounded the result as instructed. My screen size is 14 inches. All bags marked as Up to 15 Inch Laptops will fit my laptop.
Will this bag fit me?
We understand that finding the perfect leather bag can be a concern, especially when it comes to fitting different body shapes and sizes. Our bags are designed to accommodate adults of all sizes, and we have taken special measures to ensure your comfort and satisfaction.
Our leather bags are thoughtfully crafted to fit all sizes of humans comfortably.
Most of our bags feature adjustable shoulder straps that can be extended from 25 inches to 49 inches. This wide range ensures that the bag can be easily customized to fit your unique body shape and size. Whether you're petite, tall, or somewhere in between, you can adjust the strap to find the perfect fit.
Will this bag be too heavy for me?
We understand the importance of comfort when carrying your belongings. Bags made from real leather are slightly heavier than most other materials. That’s why we've made adjusting the shoulder straps on our bags quick and easy.
The design of the adjustable straps are user-friendly and hassle-free, so you won't have to spend a lot of time trying to get the right fit. Once you find your ideal strap length, you can easily secure it in place, allowing you to effortlessly carry the bag with maximum comfort and style.
How do I look after my bag?
Treating a real leather bag with care can extend its life by years.
We recommend following our full Leather Care Secrets guide to preserve your leather bag.
Use a good leather care kit once or twice per year to prevent your bag becoming dry or cracked. We recommend using this all natural leather care kit for our bags.
Be sure to take the time to care properly for your leather. If you do, your bag can have a good, long life.
Can I get it monogrammed?
At this time, we do not provide monogramming or embossing services. However, all our bags can be monogrammed by most leather working dealers. We recommend taking our bags to your local dealer for more information.
Can I get it wet?
Wherever possible, avoid damp or moisture on your leather bag. We know this is not always possible, so if your bag does get wet, here's what you do.
If you spill something on it, blot away the moisture with a clean dry cloth as quickly as you're able to.
Caught in a rainstorm? Be sure to let your leather bag completely air dry and do not use a heat source to speed up the drying (this can damage the leather). Stuff the bag with newspaper to help the bag keep its shape and absorb moisture from the inside.
Will my bag smell bad when I get it?
As this bag is made from real leather, it is likely to emit a strong, natural leather smell when you first receive it. This will fade over time.
Should this smell not be to your liking, we recommend airing out your bag in a cool, dry climate for 48 hours.
Can this leather bag be made with custom dimensions?
We are able to make some leather bags in our collection with custom dimensions.
If you are interested in this service, please contact us, providing the model requested and the desired dimensions. If this is currently possible, we will then provide a quote.
Please note that any custom bags ordered this way are strictly made-to-order, so will take a little longer to get to you and will be more expensive than the similar model on our site. All custom orders are final and returns cannot be accepted.
I’m not a regular on-line shopper, concerned about scam websites and poor quality products. I’m so glad I took a chance on this one!
Excellent quality and good value for money - great design, thick leather and nice attention to detail. I have no hesitation in recommending this company and its products.
Thanks James, that's great to hear! Thanks again for including a photo review.
I ordered this on Black Friday, getting a good price. I was skeptical on just how good it would look, function, & hold up with heavy use. I have two other leather bags that I love, but I wanted to mix it up a bit. It feels good quality, and it doesn't fold and crinkle like cheap 'paper leather' that I have seen with other leather messenger bags on Amazon.
I was impressed with the color. Granted, I'm sure there is a lot of color variations from bag to bag, but I love this 'starting' color on mine. Overtime, the wear, stretching and scratches will only make it look better.
There isn't a smell on the outside, other than the smell of real leather. The inside canvas has a slight smell, but I know that'll fade with time. I am letting it breathe for a week or two before using it. If it doesn't dissipate, I may use some kind of conditioner on the canvas to try and wash it out.
I'm excited to put it through the paces, and keep it in the bag rotation.
Thanks Eric for taking the time to leave such a detailed review! We really appreciate it. We're delighted you like the bag and your feedback has been passed on to our team for review. Thanks again!
This is of excellent quality. Most accolades have already been expressed. To offer a new one, let me state this:" After your demise, your children will fight over who gets this bag!"
Wow this is amazing to hear Jeffery! Thanks again for taking the time.
As a professor, I like wearing a Rolex Submariner on a leather strap, writing with a Montblanc fountain pen, and I drive a Jeep Wrangler-2 door of course…so, this bag fits right in and nails it in regard to quality and functionality! Thank you!
Sounds amazing! Thanks Dr.
Great quality bag, my boyfriend loved it.
being a lecturer at a local university, i wanted to find a bag that would hold a small laptop, notes and looked like indiana jones' bag and this was perfect. it also works for when i play an orchestra performance as it also holds my music, small repair kit for my horn and oil.
That's amazing, thanks Morgan!
This bag is excellent in all categories, the looks, the feel the functionality and quality. I like it so much i ordered the matching Portfolio.
Hi Eric, we'd love to hear about any issues you're having. Could you get in touch with customer service please?
I've been using The Jones for the better part of a year now and it is awesome. I'm usually a little hesitant about people's claims about their leather quality, but let me just say, this leather is so genuine its like you're carrying around an actual buffalo to hold your stuff. I've never seen such thick, tough leather.
Amazing, thanks Chester!
