    I bought this bag because I'm transitioning from being a grad student to being a professional, and frankly my old backpack wouldn't cut it. The old girl has served me well, but let's face it - she's only one step up from a Transformers lunch box in the professional world.

    PROS:

    First impressions are excellent. The bag is a deep, rich brown leather. It's slightly distressed, but looks professional enough for anyone who can get away with a messenger bag for work. The construction seems really good, all the seams are well done and look strong. The inner liner is a nice dark brown that matches the leather. Oh, and it smells sooooo good!

    It's a good size too - my ancient 15 inch Dell laptop fits comfortably inside it, though with no real room left for accessories (charger etc). A newer (i.e. thinner) 15 inch laptop would easily fit. I'm not sure about a 17 inch laptop though, so fair warning if you're lugging a larger lappy around with you.

    Plenty of smaller pockets, two pen holders. There is a zip pocket on the outside of the main flap and another inside the bag itself.

    CONS:

    The main compartment does not have a zip. The main flap stays closed via magnets, which is great and very sleek but they are fairly weak. I'd have preferred something a little stronger in the absence of a zip.

    The strap is fabric rather than leather. It's pretty clear in the photo of the bag, but for some reason I missed it. Just a warning if you were expecting a leather strap. I actually like the strap that does come with it, it's sturdy and is a good length (I'm 6'2" with a long torso and at full extension the bag sits nicely at my hip).

    The "cell phone pocket" is kind of a joke these days.

    I had scoured the web (dept stores, etc.) looking for a man bag for a gift. I decided to try this one since I knew Kenneth Cole products are well made. This was much better than my expectations. The leather is soft, pliable and beautiful. The workmanship is great. The person for whom I bought it loved it. It was just what he was looking for and couldn't find and he lives in a large city that has everything!!!! Thank you for this great, practical and perfect messager bag!!!

    This product looks great from the outside. You can safely ignore appearance complaints, as they are most likely from people who are more familiar with shiny, cheap bonded leather than with supple cowhide leather.

    One look, or one smell, will tell you this is quality, tanned leather. So why only 3 stars?

    First of all, it looks like a purse. I'm not a self-conscious guy or anything, but if I'm going to carry around a bag, I want to look more Indiana Jones than Prada. Its just not my style.

    Second, and perhaps more importantly, the interior is lined with some kind of vinyl material that basically makes this bag create a swishing, plastic-on-plastic sound that detracts from the perception of quality in the materials. If you're rummaging through it, it honestly makes a similar sound to a baby running around in a diaper.

    As others have mentioned, this bag is flimsy and absolutely does not stand up on its own as it appears to in the product pictures. I don't consider this a quality issue and don't mind it, but if you want something kind of sturdy that you could put papers in, this is not your bag.

    Anyway, I didn't dig this product and for $100, I need to. So I've returned it and went for Visconti Big Leather Organizer Messenger Bag 18410 in Distressed Leather instead. We'll see how that one turns out.

    The photo in the description shows a small handle which was not on the bag I received. Too bad I liked it.

    I just started student teaching, so I wanted something more professional than my bright blue Yamaha backpack. I found this while sifting through Amazon.com with searches like "man bag" and "satchel." I thought it was a great price considering what I had seen at places like Fossil - not to mention it was leather instead of canvas.
    When I got it in the mail I could not have been more impressed. It came in a nice box and even a printed back with a zipper to boot. It just got better from there! I've been using it every day for about 3 weeks now. The leather is still incredibly soft, the stitching is very strong and well done, along with the zipper and pretty much everything else. My macbook fits in there with a couple small binders, along with other random things like pencils, a calculator, index cards, etc., but there's not much room left over.
    One interesting thing is that mine does not have the handle on the back like the one in the picture.

    I highly recommend this bag for anyone who values quality and wants to use it in both casual and professional settings.

    I got this for my boyfriend who is using it for work. The leather and look of the bag is great. However, the picture shows a handle and the bag does not have one. This was very disappointing because we looked for a bag that would have a handle. I would have liked to get the product shown..
