High utility and durability...
on May 22, 2011
This is a good looking bag, but while it's apparently made of leather, it's not made of really great leather.
I have a bag that I bought in Manhattan - from an artisan booth at a street fair - that still smells like cow. It's been two years, and the thing looks and feels like it just came off the tanning truck. This bag doesn't have the slightest smell or feel of leather, in my opinion. Now, it LOOKS like leather (more or less), and it's quite useful..but if you're after that real leather experience, look elsewhere.
That said, the bag is quite durable. The pockets inside are nice, even though I prefer to have a few more sub-compartments to help keep stuff organized. The laptop part holds my 13" MacBook Pro with no problems, and allows me to carry a 15" Dell if it's absolutely necessary. The strap is good and durable, and the workmanship appears to be top notch.
I've been beating it up for a month or so, and I don't have any complaints of a practical nature....just the leather issue.
