I have the brown one, and it looks very nice. It was hard to not notice how impressive looking the leather makes this bag appear, and in every other way it shares the theme. People will look at this and think it's a well made, expensive bag.
I have personally not had any issues with any oil rubbing off on my clothing, at least not that I've noticed. I saw another review or two that did, so I wanted to mention that.
I know the dimensions were listed, but for me it's kind of difficult to envision the size of a bag on me based on numbers. I knew it wasn't going to be gigantic, but I find it somewhat small. It does look a little like a man purse, but not overly so. When it's full it does hold more to the messenger bag look. i am 6'1" however so being a above average sized male that does play a role in the relative concept in regards to the bag size vs me. If you are smaller than I am, you would have less of an issue with this bag size.
The only other thing i didn't realize based on the product page that i discovered was that the bag does not zip closed. Every other messenger bag I've owned has had this. The top flap goes over the opening, and thats about it. It seems to work well enough as it has magnetic buttons on the inside of the flap to keep it down, but i dunno, it just seems to annoy me slightly. It's by no means a deal broker for myself, but you should know what you're getting.
Overall though I like it quite a bit. It holds my ultrabook in a padded case, along with two portfolio's which include notebooks, or one and a moderate sized book. Everything is sown superbly and looks great. You can tell it is of higher quality than a lot of other bags out there.
If you don't mind something on the slightly smaller side you would probably like this bag, i know i do.
I have no Cons with this bag.
Be aware though that the dimensions listed are evidently for the unsewn leather pieces.
Mine measures 13 3/4" wide, 10 1/4" interior height and 4" depth front to back at the bottom and 3 1/4 at the top corners, all measurements are for the main compartment and don't include the front flap..
I can put an old Dell D631 14" laptop into the bag and it just barely touches the two sides.
there is still room for a 1 1/2' three ring binder.
A standard size magazine will fit into any of the three pockets, tight fit in the length for the two zippered pockets.
The center main pocket of course stretches out from the two sides adding to what you can put into it.
As an overnight bag it holds far more than you would expect. (But then I'm a male and don't need much)
socks, boxers, polo shirt, shorts, tee shirt, sandals, shaving kit, 7" tablet, charger for phone and tablet... And I could still pull the front down and close it on the magnets.
>>>I do not recommended the following to anyone, and take no responsibility if you do it and aren't happy with the results<<< I've worked with leather for years and knew what to expect from Oiled leather.
I ordered the Oiled Tan color, knowing I was going to apply a waterproofing wax and that this would darken the color.
When the bag arrived i wiped it down to remove some of the oil, (very light transfer, brown and black would be worse)
I then applied a good coat of Sno-Seal over the entire bag, and melted it in with a hair dryer.
Let it cool down for about a 1/2 an hour, and then wiped and buffed the bag to remove any excess wax.
This turned the bag into a nice deep rich brown color, and waterproofed it, and stopped any further oil transfer.
