Bag has an initial stiffness which will no doubt wear down after time but that is customary with any new bag, you can smell the leather; bought this for my father and seeing him wear and enjoy it makes me happy with my purchase.
Purchased roll top backpack. Came nicely packaged, a day early. Exactly as advertised, nicely stitched and nicely finished quality leather. Well worth the spent. Highly recommend.
Absolutely love this!
I was looking for a new backpack that wouldn’t kill my pockets as a grad student. I absolutely love it!! I love the way it looks and the vintage appeal. I have recommended to friends already.
This bag is constructed of quite thick and heavy leather which I like a lot.
Amazing Quality! Genuine leather. Good quality buckles. This really is a work of art. Beautiful backback. I am sure to have this for decades.
I absolutely LOVE this bag! I bought it as a Father’s Day gift for my guy whose new job requires he visits doctor’s offices regularly. While I think it’s a great look for traveling with a laptop and any files, he has a small concern; there are too many buckles and flaps to access your things efficiently—may be too cumbersome for every day use? Otherwise, it’s a quality item and I’d love to keep it for myself!
Used this bag for a long international trip and it held so much stuff it’s ridiculous. The more you use it the softer the bag becomes and then you can put more in it. You could take this bag and this bag alone on a week long trip and not need anything else. Weather resistant and stylish,I got a million comments about it. Love it. Great buy.
Purchased this as a gift for my husband. He loves it! Great quality stitching & very thick leather. I was a little weary due to the low price and lack of reviews and customer pics, but this bag absolutely exceeded my expectations! Confident that it will last for years to come!
Strong and sturdy bag with deep pockets. I was thinking that it didn't look very feminine but we received great compliments about it from women and men alike.
I get lots of compliments when I take this bag out. It looks really sturdy and is. Holds a ton of stuff too. Is very comfortable to wear on my back and is pretty low profile although not a tiny bag. Definitely would recommend.
Real leather, good quality apart from one of the straps not having holes punched in it. I took the time to treat the leather with conditioning and protecting paste and it is much more flexible now. I am impressed with the inside lining, zippered internal pockets, and padded separator, so although this is a retro bag, it has modern features for laptops and other devices. Good internal capacity, the external bag is also a good size. Strong stitching and sturdy buckles, with care this bag will last for a long time.
Love it! This is a very well made and sturdy bag. It's definitely something I get complimented on quite often. It seems too look better with more wear and tear. It smells like new leather when you first get and its very tough. I love it, the unique roll at the top to close it, Its a bad ass bag and it will fit a lot of contents.
Excellent backpack, unique looks and genuine leather. As some say, the shoulder straps do feel a little thin even as compared to the roll straps but haven’t had any issues yet. Do recommend the leather softener/saddle soap as others have mentioned, with use it feels less stiff but has taken a few months of daily use to get there. There are “padded pockets” on the inside but it is NOT padded on the bottom which is what I would prefer for my laptop.
So, this will EASILY hold a MacBook Pro 15.6" computer. It also holds my portable scanner, mouse a tablet and more. Leather is very nice...still to start, but I applied a generous amount of oil on it, and it makes it even nicer! To roll up the top easily will take some time as the leather needs to break in, but it's already starting to form for me. This is a really neat pack, and I have already received several compliments. And the leather smells great, too! One thing that I would change: I think the straps could be a bit shorter, as I am not crossing them as shown in the photo. I find it easier to do a vertical buckling. I would also have one more set of "snugger" holes at the top to hold the roll-down portion tight to help shape it. Minor quibbles all. I'm very happy!
I just received two of these. I was skeptical at first of the price. Now that I have them, I can indeed vouch for the quality. They look amazing and smell great. I'm giving one as a gift, and selfishly got one for myself. I received them earlier than expected as well. You can tell that they are assembly line products as the two I got were almost identical (except for the random leather patterns), but the quality seems legit. The young man going off to trade school will have a manly bag to tote whatever guys at trade school carry. Probably mostly dirty laundry and a laptop. It will easily carry a laptop (or a small child if you want a minion on your back). That's the first thing I tried (the laptop, that is). Comparable leather products here in the states have RIDICULOUS % mark up. For the money, these are a great value.
This is a great bag and I get compliments on it wherever I go. The color is beautiful and distresses well, and the leather is nice and stiff which provides excellent support for my laptop. The shoulder straps are comfortable. There are a few issues: it needs to be broken in a bit and I had to add some extra hole punches to the straps in order to get it to close tightly. There are some inconsistencies in the leather in the shoulder straps and one has stretched out further than the other as I've used it - again, addressed with new hole punches. Also: this is more of a cosmetic issue than a functional one, but the top doesn't really roll up like is shown in the photo. It folds over more than it rolls. It still looks good, but if you are going for the rolled look you may be disappointed. Overall, I'm really happy with this purchase.
