I bought the distressed leather messenger bag for a graduation gift and was very pleased with the quality and craftsmanship of the product. The bag is very masculine looking and the distressed leather is great for a college student.
My grandson was so pleased with this satchel. Perfect for school and work. Excellent quality.
The real leather company was great to work with. The thing that sold me on this bag was the distressed look and the checkered lining. Even the 2 front zipper pockets are lined. There is a lined pad between the computer sleeve and the rest of the bag, also a zippered pocket on the inside. The strap is leather and canvas, looks very sturdy. The only suggestion I would have is to make it magnetic close for easier opening.
The bag looks great, appears to be well built, and is comfortable to have on the shoulder or in hand. I bought this bag specificity to carry a Dell Alienware 17 inch laptop around. That laptop has the following dimensions: Height: 1.181" (29.9mm) x Width: 16.7" (424mm) x Depth: 13.1" (332mm). The laptop and the 330 watt power supply fit easily, securely, and there is room for a book, notpad, and a few other things too.
Very nice bag and well made. Clasps could be a little better as tend to come unbuckled when you sit it down and its a little on the pricey side (maybe just me!). I overall nice appearance.
