The bag is made of nice quality leather with sturdy zipper and handle attachments. The top opens quite wide and fits my small (15") laptop nicely. It is not overly roomy on the inside, so bringing additional paperwork along will be judicious. Inside pockets are few, and the shoulder straps are a bit short for me; i.e. doesn't sling easily over the shoulder, especially over winter coats. Overall, it is very nice for the price and meets my needs on a day to day basis.
