This briefcase is lovely, and the case itself is holding up well. However, both handles have several breaks in them after limited use over the past year. It is a shame to have to stop using it becaue the handles are shot when the rest of the bag is like new.
After using this bag for less than 2 weeks the leather ripped all over the handles and the binding began to come undone. I did not even put a laptop in the bag but instead put a notebook, folder, a wallet and pens/pencils. I am going to try to get a refund bc I am not sure it is even leather. I have never seen a leather bag do this.
I use this as my everyday bag. No need for separate purse, briefcase & laptop case. A little heavy, but this is because it is leather & well made. I got use to it in no time. Best bag that I have had in a long time, very stylish & goes with everything.
When this first arrived and I removed it from the box I thought Oh No this just isn't going to be big enough. Was I surprised. I was able to transfer all my stuff from my old brief case with room to spare. Also the Quality and look of this product is great. I would recommend this Laptop Tote. I love mine.
The handle split with little use. Used to transport a laptop and a pad of paper and pen to meetings I wouldn't expect the leather handle to split. I am very disappointed. I received compliments initially but not after a only a few months.
I purchased this bag 7 months ago. The handles are already coming apart. The handles are not leather and have fallen apart much too easily. I do not think this bag will last beyond a year. I use it to carry a lap top but do not use it daily. I was very disappointed in the quality.
I love this bag, it has plenty of compartments and a lot of easy access pockets but I have used it for work for exactly six months and the "leather" on the handles has ripped completely through in three places. It seems for this price the product should last more than six months.
I ordered the red version of this bag and it is GORGEOUS! My only critique is it has too many compartments inside (one padded for a laptop and one zippered) and they're sewn in, so you can't empty it out. It reduces how many files you can carry if you wanted to carry a large number of files. Another lady in my office has the black version. Hers is 2 years old and looks brand new.
