Product Description

The Cenzo Messenger is the best in class for the price. It is made in Italy using Italian calfskin leather, smart contrast stitching, and brass hardware. It is big enough to hold all laptops and has 2 internal compartments, 2 gusset pockets, a large zip pocket, 2 pen holders, and an inside pen and phone holder. One characteristic of our vegetable leather is that it has large pores and absorbs smell - so you might detect a sweet nail polish scent when you remove it from the plastic for the first time. Please take note of this characteristic. This new leather smell is the result of the leather edge paint and clear stain coating - it fades after 24 hours in fresh air. Weight is 3.5 pounds.

    After months of searching for a replacement for my 15 year old messenger bag I have finally found it.. I was looking for the perfect bag that was sophisticated enough for work yet casual enough to run around town.. I looked at the likes of Barneys & T. Anthony and was unable to find a piece of this quality at such an incredible price.. When it arrive I was very impressed - the product was 'spot on' for what I was looking for.. Sophisticated and versatile - the leather is of incredible quality and will wear in extremely nicely.. the stitching and lining added nice touches to an already perfect piece.. I have been running around New York City answering the same question countless times "where did you get that bag".. Well here you have it - so stop asking.. LOL

    In short there is no better bag at no better price.. I anticipate to have this bag for the next fifteen years and from what I can see already there is a good chance I will have it significantly longer..

    Two years later, I still love this bag. I use it daily; it has held up very well and often gets complimented. The leather is supple and strong and has aged nicely. It's just a pleasure to have.

    This is not a cheap bag. The hardware is quality brass and easily replaceable as time wears on. That said, I did have a broken strap early on, the clip mechanism fell apart. I emailed the Floto and received a new strap in the mail a day or two later, no questions asked.

    I've had repeated dialogs with Floto and I can tell you that they are really nice to deal with. It's only a very small importer, and they take customer service seriously and always follow up with a personal email or call, no canned responses.

    If you are looking for a high-quality, reasonably priced messenger bag for a business casual office environment, this is a great choice.

    For quality it's probably 4 or 5 stars. For practicality as a traveler, 2 or 3 stars. It's large, bulky, and having to pull back the large flap almost 360 degrees gets annoying, especially on a plane. Every time I reach for this on a plane I wish I bought a smaller case with easy access down the middle. The leather is good quality but scratches easily. Overall, it's a quality bag but somewhat bulky and the pull-back flap is cumbersome in tight spaces.

    Absolutely beautiful leather, excellent workmanship and a sophisticated appearance. They sure know how to work leather in Italy. I've had numerous compliments on it. I'm using it as a laptop bag for a heavy 17" HP laptop. The bag doesn't come with a padded compartment but the interior is so roomy my laptop fits in easily wearing a protective neoprene sleeve. Plenty of room for notepads, cords, etc. I've always been a fan of nice leather and this is possibly the nicest leather item I own. I highly recommend it!!

    Purchased this bag since have seen the many positive reviews on Floto Imports on the web, and I was not disappointed. This bag was high quality, functional and stylish and I am planning to buy myself another piece from Floto Imports for Christmas. If this bag is a representation of his other products I have to treat myself again. I am not sure if the best feature is the quality of leather / workmanship or attention to detail in terms of the stitching but I am a fan. I work on Madison Avenue in NYC and I always laugh at the vendors who charge $$$ for a bag that may have a "prestige" name badge but I am a quality guy and Floto fits the bill. Highly recommend you try a piece and see for yourselves.

    I've been looking for a briefcase for about 5 months, which is a fairly standard purchasing time for me. Honestly I haven't seen anything under 1000 USD that matches this for simplicity and elegance. It feels well-made and durable, and has a really beautiful finish. I'll be buying other products from them.

    UPDATE: The strap really doesn't fit the bag, it's too thin and too short. Only complaint.

    I received this bag as a Christmas gift from my husband. I couldn't be happier with it. Not only is it gorgeous leather but also very sturdy construction. I will be using this bag primarily for business trips and meetings. I know it will suit my needs perfectly. My friends and associates will be so jealous.

    I've had this bag for about 2 years now and it's held up very well. The leather quality is good (not great, but excellent for the price), and for the most part the bag is very sturdy. My only complaint is that the strap is thin, and the hardware on the strap is cheap (mine broke only a few months after I got the bag). I replaced the stock hardware on the strap with some studier brass clips I bought at a hardware store.
