First things first, does this bag bleed on your clothes? In my own personal experience, yes the bag bleeds, but there is a simple fix.
I am writing this after solving the problem.
First, what is causing the bag to bleed on your clothes? The reason the bag is bleeding on your clothes, it's because the leather isn't sealed.
The solution: go to the search bar right here on Amazon, copy and paste .... "Meguiar's G3800 Gold Class Leather Sealer Treatment. "
This should cost you about $12-13.
Once you get the leather sealer treatment, it's not rocket science, it literally takes 15 minutes to do the two step process. You literally spray the cleaner on in sections, and wipe it off. Once you're done with the cleaning spray, you go to step 2 which is a sealer (lotion like substance). Same thing, apply in small sections, then buff the sealer with the buffing pad they provided. Done
Let it dry. Repeat the process every 4 to 6 months.
Great bag, but for whatever reason Kenneth Cole decided not to seal the leather, for this reason only, I cannot give it 5 stars.
Lastly, I provided a picture of before and after, the one on the left is untreated, the one on the right is post treatment. I was still in the midst of buffing all the white stuff off, but you can clearly see the difference.
Hope this helps.
Price: Not expensive but not cheap. Matches the quality of the bag.
Leather: The description claims “Full Grain Cowhide leather” for the exterior. This is only partially correct. When you receive the bag, you’ll be greeted with the Genuine leather tag on the side. This was very disappointing as they used the description to trick buyers. The bag does have pieces of full grain leather (which is how they can get away with their claim) but, the majority of the bag is made of low grade genuine leather.
Strap: The strap is not thick enough to prevent twisting and the clip is even worse. You’ll constantly have to untwist the strap so that the shoulder pad isn’t upside down. The clip seems oversized for the strap as well. The strap constantly slips and becomes loose.
Inside: As you can see from my picture, the back snap caused a hole on the inside of the bag. This is due to cheap/thin material they’ve used.
In summary, the bag has served its purpose. It last as longer than I expected for low grade genuine leather. This is by far the best design I’ve come across and I would pay top dollar for a full grain leather bag that looked like this.
1) This bag can be used as a heavy duty business or laptop bag. I regularly carry my 16inch laptop in this bag which fits comfortably with several other documents.
2) Has enough compartments to carry all necessary items.
3) The bag is made of quality materials which with around a year of use has not begun to crack or tear. Even with a fully weighted bag it has hardly seen any wear.
It has definitely been recommended by me as well as bought a second time as a gift.
-be careful with light colored shirts in the summer, some color from the pad on the shoulder strap can come off
-the bag does deform somewhat easily, so I always try to carry something inside it such as a folder to help it keep its shape
-the capacity of this bag is not that high, if you max it out, it's awkward to carry and the strap slides off the should easily; with my 13" thinkpad in there, there isn't much else that can go in;
-there aren't many ways to safely keep smaller items and a tablet
So far, it seems like the bag will last for years. If I get another bag it will be due to need to carry more, or to carry what I have with greater comfort.
The only two things I wish I had paid more attention to when I was buying are
1- The shoulder strap is not that good and is not removable, so you are stuck with it.
2- there are no inside partitions for laptop and documents. When ever I try to slip in my laptop the open docs come in the way or the charger comes in the way.
The buttons are really good magnetic ones and snaps right in. Does not easily come off on its own.
Top reviews from other countries
As far as I'm concerned, the only thing I disliked so far is that it seems that either these bags were products previously purchased but returned, or are factory seconds : Mine came with a small darkened hole (maybe an insect chew it, or it was burned or something) and some rough scratch that stripped away a small layer of leather. There is some slight imperfections around the edges and the stiches seems botched at two spots, but these are really hard to see. I mean, considering the price, this isn't bad, but if they really are factory seconds, it should be mentionned.
Now, as other people have pointed it already, there is some slight bleeding if the leather is damp or wet, and there might be some bleeding against white items when dry. To correct this issue, you might want to waterproof it slightly as the leather itself isn't sealed, or you might take a drastic approach and never use it when it rains or snows.
As for the bag itself, it does what it's supposed to do. The shoulder strap is sturdy enough, but I honestly wouldn't carry the bag using the handle, unless it's empty or filled with something light: It doesn't seem to be secured properly, so you'll end up ripping the bag if you carry it using the handle while it's heavy.
As for the main compartment, there is nothing to write home about. It will carry a tablet or a ream of paper with ease, or anything in-between. One of the front compartments has a pocket for your phone (my LG G6 fits right in, but it will have some issues carrying anything larger) and there is some for your pens too. Classic and useful, but don't expect it to be more organized than that. If you're like me and like to keep your things simple and tend to bring the bare minimum with you, then it will be great. If you carry a lot of stuff, then the bag might be a tad barebone for your tastes.
Concerning the front panel magnetic opening "system" : It does work well, but it doesn't seem it would last unless you take good care of it. It will probably be preferable to open it near the magnet to decrease the strength used.
The only problem are the snaps of the top cover. One of them broke already. It is attached to the internal materials rather to the leather itself.
If you consider buying this bag, make sure not to overload it or this may append to you.
In my situation. I need the saps to work because I don’t want my things to slip off during my daily train transit to the job. I don’t find any easy way to fix it, so I will need to purchase another bag. If knew it before, I would rather have purchased a more solid bag the first time.
