I highly recommend this bag for business or personal travel of 1-2 nights. I purchased the brown leather version. It isn't as large as some of the boxier style bags, but is appropriate for a professional who packs well. It's benefits are it's size (easy to fit under an airline seat, or overhead), easy to carry, comfortable handles, solid construction that holds it's shape and extremely stylish design. The only thing that stopped me offering an Excellent rating is that absolutely woeful shoulder strap included. The brass-style fittings at either end seem well built and solid, however the strap is extremely narrow, rough edged, and with a tiny shoulder pad that itself is barely wider than a man's belt. I would likely never use this strap. It is an embarrassment on an otherwise very well made bag. The finish of the leather is very high, and it has a supple, shiny and rich finish that is far more pleasing than the Coach Bleecker bag I was considering. At the price, this is excellent value and I would buy other products from this manufacturer. I will be having a leather shop manufacture me a decent strap should I find the need. Luckily, for it's size, the bag won't need to be carried over the shoulder very much.
