5.0 out of 5 stars Looks even better than in the picture!, August 6, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Samsonite Colombian Leather Flapover Case (Apparel)
After lots and LOTS of searching, and narrowing it down to this one and the Kenneth Cole Reaction Luggage Show business (as many others did, they both seem to be great briefcases).
I ultimately decided to go with this one because it seemed to be a little bit sturdier/thicker material than the Kenneth Cole bag. My biggest worry about this bag is that it would look too shiny for me, as I wanted a bag that would look more business casual. IMO, the picture doesn't do the bag justice. It looks too shiny in the picture and it really has a nice soft, worn look to it. I took it on a 2-week business trip right after I got it and I couldn't be happier with my purchase. I was actually able to fit 2 laptops (13" and 15"), 2 chargers, a mouse, and 2 notebooks inside of the bag. This was just for getting from point A to point B, a work and personal laptop, but that just speaks to how much room there is in it.
Some reviewers worried about/did not like that the handle comes through a hole in the flap, but I really like this feature because it feels VERY sturdy and supported when carrying it this way, plus it doesn't put tension on the clasps.
Overall very satisfied with this bag and was also very happy to get it for about $40 less ($83) than the Kenneth Cole bag ($124).

Any issues with the leather staining or bleeding color onto your khakis/pants? This seems to be a common issue for a lot of Kenneth Cole leather messanger bags?

I'm thinking of buying this item for college purposes. I live in Buffalo and the winter is sort of extreme so I will need something that is waterproof, also I have a 15.6" HP laptop, do you think it fits these 2 necessities?
