I have to say I was mesmerized by the craftsmanship, appearance and overall construction and storage space. As soon as I opened it I could sense the fragrant smell of leather. I do not use a laptop so I will be using the bag as a briefcase. My portfolio which is full fits perfectly well. The additional storage pockets are perfect for my phone my tablet and miscellaneous things I want to carry. The price is a steal! Anybody else would sell this bag for over $200+ Congratulations to the manufacturer of such beautiful bag! BUY IT!! You will not regret it.
I already have a duffel for brief trips, and a messenger bag that I use daily. This one was purchased for transport and storage of a new 17.3 inch laptop. Computer dimensions when placed in protective sleeve are 17 1/4 x 13. It fits in the bag, but there is not much room to spare.
I love the look and feel of this leather bag. I bought this item because of the large size. I do not use it for electronics but to carry work items, mostly my 64oz coffee thermos. I was tired of placing my thermos on the passenger seat, slamming on the brakes and having it violently land on the floor. This bag was my solution and it works excellent, i am also finding it convenient to carry other work related items with me. The color has improved in the two months that i have been carrying it. The straps and latches have held up nicely and i do not see any reason that they would have any issues from here on out.
I have been carrying this bag for about a year now. I have had this bag filled way beyond capacity many times. For the first 6 months, I had an older (very heavy) laptop that I carried daily and a ream of paper worth of files. I overloaded this bag and it still has held up. I would say I have another year or two left of use out of the bag, even with my unusually heavy loads. Great bag for the money!
Wow!! What a fine product! so much attention to detail. It is sturdy, yet beautifully made with an rugged look. For the price I did not expect such a high quality leather. It is quite large with plenty of room to accommodate my 16 1/2" laptop, and then room to spare for an iPad Pro, papers, cords etc. Lots of zipper pockets. An incredible value for the price. Can't say enough good things about this bag. And, there was so much care in the packing and shipping - all metal fasteners taped to avoid damage during shipment. This is a great bag!
Arrived quickly and was well packaged. I really like the look, size and storage capacity of this briefcase. I can carry my laptop as well as a large number of files without a problem. The shoulder strap needed some adjustment so I used a leather punch to make my own hole and adjusted the strap to my comfort level. You can also adjust the tightness on the leather cover flap by punching additional holes in the leather straps that buckle on the front of the briefcase. Very nice bag.
This will last me a lifetime and my child's lifetime and possibly more. I use this for a camera bag. I will make dividers soon and put in a foam bottom to make it an official camera bag. Even without that, there is a lot of space and lots of pockets. It is deep and wide to hold everything without scrunching anything. I have a camera body, 2 lenses, a large speedlight, a video light, a video microphone, extra batteries and charger for the camera and the video light, SD cards, and probably 10 more accessories I forgot at the moment. I still have room. It isn't too big either. I am 5'3" and pretty small and weak. It is just fine for me. It will hold a laptop okay but I would advise getting a foam or gel pad for the bottom for shock absorbancy.
A really nice work of craftsmanship! I would give it 6 stars if I could. The bag is true to size, and fits everything in it that I was hoping, and then some. I can fit my 15.6" laptop, tablet, and plenty of books/folders. There are more internal and external pocket than I thought there would be, which was a pleasant surprise. I chose this bag because it has a more simple exterior design, and was worried that it meant I would have less storage options and pockets. But like I said there are more pockets and options then I thought. The leather smell was not overpowering at all, and I was able to use the bag the same day I received it. To be honest I like the faint smell of leather, and lets me know it's real. You can tell that it is handmade, but in a very good way. I have no complaints at all! I will be a returning customer when the time comes for me to buy another leather bag/product.
After purchasing 3 other leather messenger type bags (and sending all 3 back), I finally decided to get this one. I'm absolutely thrilled about this bag! I have an HP that's 17" and I use a large 3 ring binder (among other things). The quality is evident just by looking at the bag. I was deterred at first to buy this bag due to the price, but am now glad I did. Well worth it! You won't regret it!
Very large bag of holding. Holds 17" thinkpad, 2nd monitor, mouse, cables, papers, files, water bottle, tylenol, you name it.
I had been looking at leather messenger bags for a few months now, trying to decide, scared off by some reviews on some bags--especially the ones re: bad-smelling leather, and it took me awhile to finally decide on this one. I really wanted one that would accommodate my husband's 17" laptop. I wasn't sure either if he'd always want to use it with the strap or not, so I had looked long and hard for detachable strap, which this does NOT have...but it met my criteria in every other way. I see now in person, you can tuck the strap inside if you really don't want to use the strap, that will work! The stitching, the leather, the canvas lining,.....everything about it reeks of class and quality! VERY pleased!
This bag is well worth it. I purchased it for my fiancé and he loved it!!!
I love the vintage look of the bag, the shoulder straps are particularly long but can be removed. Hopefully it will age gracefully but it's a 'price point' purchased. I love it so far!
A great bag which holds my 17” laptop and associated products with ease. It’s well made and looks like it will give a good lifespan.
I have decided to independently study & got this bag for text books & what not. I really treated myself, this bag is beautiful! Good amount of room, I was worried one of these type of bag would be big enough for a couple text books. Definitely not worried about that with this bag. I am very pleased with this beauty!!
I ordered this bag about two weeks ago and I love it! It is made of stiff leather that I know will soften and become more subtle as I use it. The bag is very durable.
This bag looks great! It looks so good that my best friend bought one when he saw it and I just got one for my Dad because he loved mine. It has gone with me overseas to Hong Kong and Macau and on several domestic road trips both by car and by air. It has proven to be an exceptionally reliable travel companion.
The bag is gorgeous! I have the matching purse. It's very roomy & the fact that I got it in 1 day was a huge plus for me! I loved it!
This bag is perfect and great quality!! Very pleased! Fast shipping, and careful packing so no parts of it got scratched. Plenty of room for laptop and all accessories and papers I need to carry daily as an insurance agent. Lots of pockets. Highly recommend!
Love the design. Love the space. Love the entire bag.
The bag is absolutely fantastic and beautifully crafted. I personally use it to carry both my work laptop, personal laptop work cell, tablet, and some paper pads. Very stylish and have had many comments about it. The bag also has a lot of character since it was handmade you can see small imperfections from little indents to a miss stitch but to me this just adds even more to the character to the bag. I am extremely happy with my purchase and will keep the company in mind for future needs.
