Perfect size and good quality
Some have mentioned the actual color being darker than the picture but they must have since updated the photo; mine is exactly as shown, dark brown. The size is perfect too. I wanted something on the smaller side since I have plenty of larger capacity bags. This one I keep light and hardly ever use the shoulder strap. The quality is very good for the price. I have no doubt it could take more abuse than I throw at it and still last many years.

Great bag...wrong color
Bag was a gift for my fiance on Christmas. Great bag, seems like it is good qualify as well. Only issue is that the color of the bag on the website is much lighter then the actual bag itself. The true color of the bag is a chocolate brown, almost black. Just something to keep in mind when ordering. Maybe Amazon can update the description or picture. Overall happy with the purchase.

This is a beautiful bag.
By "Helen Schlegel"
It is very tasteful-carry it wearing a suit or jeans. Masculine without lots of hardware.
The bag is sewn and finished beautifully- no rag-tag ends or threads hanging inside or out. Bag is a gift so I haven't personally used it, but it feels sturdy. Handles are well attached, and generous enough to slip over handle of a rolling bag. The zippers are of an appropriate weight, with big pulls that operate easily without tugging or catching on lining. The bag has some organization to it without being "overly" organized. Pockets and slots are not so size-or-use-specific that they have limited usefulness. Lining is dark "necktie" print- good in case a pen leaks and is as well finished as the exterior with good zippers and reinforcement. Bag came with detachable carrying strap as indicated.
The young man receiving this gift is not a fan of designer logos on things he uses or wears. This is by a designer, but the logo is stamped discreetly into the bag on one side, near the handle. It is very subtle and does not detract from the beautiful style. Product details say this fits up to a 17 inch laptop with "medium" used to reflect the size. I would say "generous medium" is more accurate. Described as "dark" brown, I thought a black bag had come by mistake. After looking at it in natural light, you can tell it is brown-very dark brown.
Leather items can sometimes come with a funny, chemical smells that can linger, but this had no odor at all. There is the typical disclaimer about marks and small areas of uneven finish being a part of leather's natural beauty, but on close inspection I saw no blemishes at all. In fact, this seems to be the kind of leather that gets better with use- sturdy but supple which I believe will make it wear better and make it always handsome.
I am very pleased with the quality and design of this bag and am looking forward to giving it as a graduation gift. It came very quickly and I feel I got good value for the price.
