The leather in this is quite thin. The leather in on of the handles cracked and opened within a month and a half of purchase. I am not particularly rough on purses, but I did purchase this with the intention of carrying my work laptop to and from the office. Fortunately, I had the good sense of purchasing the platinum protection and got store credit. Will get some other brand, though I do think McKlein makes very good looking bags.
I recently purchased this tote and let it sit in the box for 2 weeks. When I opened it, I remembered why I ordered it. It is stunning and so functional. I carried it to my office and got many compliments. I can finally put everything that I need in a tote and still look fashionalble. It is perfect.
I have daily used this bag for over a year. The bag is roomy, functional and still looks good. Unfortunately the cover over the cord handle has cracked and broken in multiple places exposing the cord inside. The bag is worth taking it to have the handles replaced. Love the red.
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.
