I've been looking for a fashionable bag that was professional enough that I could take it to court with me, but big enough to hold a lot of things. This bag is absolutely perfect. I was choosing between a number of McKlein bags, but this one seemed the best. Once it was delivered (very quickly by the way) I realized it was absolutely perfect for what I need it for.
I concur that the bag is a beautiful color, and I've gotten many compliments on its look. I also appreciate the light interior which makes it easy to find things! It looks great with anything as the red isn't so red as to dominate my outfits. I wouldnt say it is "roomy" by any means but for a meeting or a job interview where you are packing your (slim) laptop, a few papers or a magazine, pens, etc. it is absolutely perfect. You can aslo fit a bottle of water inside, but only laying it horizontally across the top of everything else, which means you'd have to take it out each time you need to reach something.
On the downside, it is heavy (leather will do that) and quite stiff. I'm looking forward to it loosening up more as I continue to use it.
I have been looking for a leather laptop bag/business purse with a stylish and sophisticated appearance and then landed on this one. The red hue is richer than its appearance on-screen; it's actually a garnet shade and looks beautiful. Aside from the laptop sleeve being too small, it's a great bag for the polished professional, and is roomy enough for files, BlackBerry, pens, etc. I liked it so much, I ordered it in basic black shortly afterward. I just wish they would continue to manufacture it in the sand shade for summer.
How accurate was the sizing? laptop sleeve too tight for my 15.4 laptop

Could you please tell me about the front pocket: the dimensions and whether it's just an open space or has smaller pockets within for pens, like the photos in the McKlein Forest
