So glad that I bought this bag! I get comments on it all the time. I use this bag for work and it is large enough to carry my laptop, notebook, folders, wallet, etc. It truly is timeless, as I scratch or bang the bag up it only looks better. The color is a really nice brown and the bag is very structured, so it's easy to stay organized. I really don't have anything negative to say about this bag, it's nice quality and perfect for school or work.
I have finally accepted that I cannot do without at least two bags - my "purse" and another bag to carry documents and lunch, other things I might need. Well, my purse has always looked good, but not my extra bag (too informal). When I focused on the issue, I realized that I needed a bag just as nice as my purse - but larger. This is it - the front panel holds my digital camera, extra makeup, pens, extra reading glasses. The inside holds my folio and my lunch - all in a stylish way. Now I feel really "pulled together". Excellent value for an excellent look.
Good quality leather, well made and sturdy
Easy to use and sturdy zippers
Roomy, but keep in mind it has a metal frame inside that props open the bag and collapses on closing
Wish it had handles. Has a strap to carry it, but handles would have made this bag perfect
Good bag, especially for the price. I would recommend. Pay attention to the dimensions, it was larger than I thought it would be. No problem from suitcases, but may be bulky for small carry-on luggage or backpacks.
After looking for a backpack that also looked nice as a purse, I settled on this one. It holds everything I need it to without looking too big and bulky. The interior is one big space with a good size zipper pocket against the inside back wall. there are also two zipper pockets on the sides (that I keep my phone, iPod and keys in) and a good size front pocket. Everything gets evenly distributed. It's heavy for a purse, but once it's on my back, it's not bad. It didn't occur to me until after I got it that it being leather starts it off weighing 4 pounds empty. It's something to consider, but it's very beautiful - soft leather - and I love it.
This leather backpack is versatile, durable, and well made. I bought it for a friend who uses it for school and work. He loves being able to fit everything he needs into one bag, even his laptop fits. At school he carries it like a backpack, and at work he carries it like a briefcase. He tells me all the time how much he loves his back pack. I think I may surprise him with the brown one if it's still available.
This Attache Case (briefcase) is by far the nicest one I have owned. The brown leather is soft with padding underneath with shinny brass hardware which gives it a beautiful and expensive look. This case goes with me every day and I've had it 6 months now and not one complaint. The expandable feature works very good. When you put a lot of stuff in it and close the case it expands 7/8 of an inch to give more room inside. You can also (with four leather snaps included) lock out the expansion feature. The Attache Case is built well with a strong comfortable handle. A big plus is although it is built strong it is very light for it's size.
I bought this for my boyfriend for upcoming business trips and he LOVES it! He said it made him feel so much more professional being able to pack his suits. It's a great bag, and even though it's inexpensive, don't let that fool you - it's a great bag and it's made well. It holds easily 2 suits and a few shirts, and easily holds 1-2 pairs of shoes in addition to whatever other accessories you can fit in the roomy front pocket for traveling. He took it with him all over the country in the last few months, and was able to easily take it as a carry on bag. I highly recommend it!
I had a very similar bag that was vinal and had used it for 10 yrs or more. I used it for work every day and for travel as an on board bag which fit under the seat perfectly even though it was filled to the max. Finally it fell apart so I wanted a new one but in leather for durability. I saw this one on the web but was sceptical of the quality because of the price. This bag is great! The leather is thick and has a great finish to it, this thing will last forever. Great deal, I may buy another one for myself or as gift.
I'm buying another one of these backpacks - glad to see it's still available. I actually bought my first one of these backpacks nearly 3 years ago & have used it every day on my long commute to work. I've also taken it w/ me on airplane trips as a carry-on. I've loved it! It has held up extemely well & I've gotten many compliments on it. Very comfortable & functional.
Only until recently have I noticed the color has rubbed off quite a bit on the bottom of the straps. However, given the heavy useage, I figured this is normal wear and tear & should be expected. I noticed other reviews regarding stitching problems but I hadn't encountered that at all.
Simply a great value for a great price! Highly recommended!
I purchased this money clip for my High School aged son. We have purchased other standard type wallets and he never used them. This one holds his money,drivers license and a card nicely. Now my Husband wants one too. The leather is quite nice and soft.
Luxurious, beautiful-- those are some of the best words to describe this luggage set. After opening the box, I put leather cleaner on it because I want them to last a long time. The pockets are deep, the zippers appear to be strong, but the main selling point is the look. I'm taking a trip to Vegas in a few weeks, so I'm going to try the carry-on then. Can't wait. Amerileather really outdid itself with this 3-piece.
I love my Leather Backpack. The quality and feel of the bag is great. The bag is well constructed. The straps are strong and the bag holds quite a bit. For those of you who are looking for something lasting. This is the one. I recommend it to all.
I have been using this bag everyday for a little more than a month, and I must say this bag is just great. There are many pockets (open & with zippers) for cd's, business cards, cell phones and deep pockets for documents. I needed the room for my laptop charger that I carry in the bag so the removable laptop cushion is out. I also am glad that the strap is not leather as this would be destroyed in time. Due to the wear of rubbing on your shoulder and the weight of the items in the bag they made the strap meaty. The leather is soft to the hand and has a wonderful aroma when first taken out of the box. Overall the bag looks sleek and has a great look. The white stitching didn't bother me when I looked at the pictures, and in fact I am glad now it does have some minor color. Do not waste your money at retail shops or some type of discount stores. You will not find a nicer, better qualtiy or better looking bag for the price. I have been using laptop style bags for years and I must say this is the best, especially when factoring the value. Hope you have found this useful and good luck
This is the nicest fanny pack I've owned. There are lots of places to put things, strong zippers that open from either side, and a great sturdy clip on the belt latch that doesn't break even when I brace a bag of groceries on the pack. The burgundy/purple color is not as vibrant as pictured and looks almost black or dark brown until you get it in the bright light and see the purple hue. But if they had it in more colors, I'd have to buy one in each color they made!
As a Cornell student, I needed a stylish, but very practical and comfortable backpack. My North Face "hiking"-like backpack was getting old. Cornell is very rainy, wet, can be super cold, and there's a LOT of walking involved if you go to class, but this bag allows me to be comfortable, and I'm sure it'll last a long long time!
I never usually write reviews, but I am very pleased with this bag, and so will you! I was a little worried at first that the bag was going to be too small to fit my daily books for class (including my 13" laptop, and 2-3 thick notebooks), but I am very happy with the results! This bag can fit all that and more! I could even shove my water bottle in the gap if you put your stuff "portrait-style" into the bag.
Sizing was very accurate- looks square-like... not rectangular like other ones (that way it's the perfect size!). This way I can fit my laptop (13") snuggly in either direction.
Also, there are many pockets that I was pleased to see as well. Just the right amount for me. The bag has a very nice leather smell to it and the first day I used it, it was raining. The leather is so nice because it is very waterproof! I just wipe off the water when i get inside and the bag looks like new!
As for storage, the main compartment is very roomy, as stated above, with an internal zip pocket for small things, then on the opposite inside, there are 2 open pockets that look like you can put smaller novels into, or even a small tablet. (about 5" wide). I originally thought that this was a laptop sleeve by the picture online, but I wasn't too disappointed, as my laptop has a hardcase. Then, still under the main flap, there is a zipped compartment that stores pencils, pens, and a little pocket for my iClicker/ calculator! Keeps everything organized. There is even a magnetic closure envelope pocket on the back of the bag with a little zipper pocket within that! Also, two small external pockets on the sides of the bag for your phone/ ipod, and in the other one, I can even fit my slim umbrella! There's really nothing negative about this bag, and it looks so good with my leather boots and my style. As a girl, I wanted a backpack that would be functional and stylish, and this definitely fits the bill, and so cheap! I got it when it was **, and now it's even cheaper, wow! Definitely high quality, I love it! I would probably get the dark brown one, too, if I ever wore anything that color ;)
Bottom line- if you're searching for a leather messenger bag for work, travel, and heavy loads at school (like me), look no further, because I've definitely hit the jackpot and couldn't be happier! The black leather looks so sleek and stylish, for men or women, you will love this bag.
I purchased the brown colored bag. It is exactly as pictured. This is a HUGE bag by the way, my thick 17in laptop fit, along with a few books, a kindle, and some other accessories. The leather is quite soft, so be careful of getting it scratched. I do not have any problem fitting the leather straps into the metal bits that I noticed in some of the other reviews.Look great, professional but not a boxy briefcase.
It's quite heavy, about 3 pounds. To be expected with the grade of leather, which is very good. Overall a very nice size briefcase for women. However, one difficulty is that the flap must be held open with one hand while you look inside, there is no way to "prop" it open leaving both hands to reach inside, and that makes it awkward. Plus the weight is 3+ pounds - empty, so even half-way loaded it's a burden. Straps and grip are excellent though.
I bought this duffel for my Italian hubby who commented on its quality as soon as he saw it. The duffel is very stylist and very rich looking. I'm happy I purchased this item and would highly recommend it to others.
This wallet is perfect for traveling with the family and keeping things organized. Room for multiple passports, credit cards, cash, travelers checks etc. I've bought one for each of my traveling buddies.
I received the garment bag today and was very pleased with the overall quality and the wonderful leather smell it has. I purchased it for my husband in brown, because that is what I like, but after receiving it, I wished I had bought it in black. I think the black would look more expensive. Black or brown, it's a nice carry on and worth the money. But for the sake of sheer appearance, buy it in black.
Have been on the search for the right shoulder strap bag for use when traveling, walking around a city and this is it! Good quality, fashionable enough for dressy casual and the perfect size for my needs. One of the better online purchases I've made............very pleased!
I really like the quality of this backpack, and it's super cute! But I'm returning it because it isn't big enough for my school needs. After one notepad of paper, a book or two, and maybe my wallet & and a bottle of water it won't stay closed. The snap button for the flap keeps popping open and it's super annoying. I bought the brown color, and the other review mentions the brown snap having the most problems, so that may be the problem. Either way, I'm going to purchase something with a zipper to avoid this problem in the future.
I bought this brief case in brown as a Christmas present for my attorney boyfriend. It holds legal-sized papers and file folders. He absolutely loves it - stands up on its own even when fully stuffed. And, it has a great compartment to hold his laptop (although there is no padded sleeve included). Also great internal compartments for pens, thumb drives, business cards, etc. And the brown doesn't look "brand new." It has a very nice finish that looks like a much more expensive bag that has been cherished for years. I can't say enough great things about this bag. Two other friends have purchased after seeing his.
Its a lovely suitcase I was a little dissapointed when it comes to the quality of it its not the best suitcase ever made but it is a fashionable piece. So if your more interested in just the look of it then its for you I for one will sacrafice the manufacturing for the look so I will not be returning the iteam back. Self not I do hope it will last me I while....
I am very pleased with this product. Real leather, cloth (not PLASTIC) pockets, sturdy metal zippers and zipper pulls, and very roomy. Not so large as to be cumbersome, but has room for probably anything you'd be toting around, and then some. The price for this type of quality can't be beat. Definitely would recommend this item.
This is something we've looked for a long time for our three sons - it is not easy to find a quality toiletry bag at such a great price.
It folds open wide to easily see and reach all items. There are small rubber "feet" on the bottom to help avoid sitting in a wet spot on the bathroom counter. This product should last for many years to come. Bought one and were so impressed that we purchased two more.
We're going to Alaska in June and wanted a large enough fanny pack to hold passports, money, credit cards, 2 cameras, hotel & ship cards keys, gum, event tickets, small gift purchases, chapstick..etc. I wanted my hands free to take photos, and not lug a big purse around every time we went somewhere.
This fanny pack is HUGE, and is ABSOLUTELY perfect for my needs. It will EASILY hold my Cannon SI IS, an extra telephoto lense, my smaller Kodak digital camera, extra SD cards and STILL have tons of room left over in the main compartment !!!
It has 2 additional zippered areas off the main compartment. One is behind the main zippered area & could be used for passports and trip tickets, and a front zippered area for keys, chapstick, gum, money and other things you want to get to first.
Zippers work smoothly and effortlessly.The leather is thick, soft and smooth with quality construction throughout. The waist strap DOES fully extend out fit someone with a 48" girth, but not an inch more.
Anyone going on a cruise, shore / land excursions, a sigt seeing vacation, Motorcycle trip or a mom with a few kids will find this fanny pack the PERFECT TRIP COMPANION. It will give you YEARS of use. I'm thrilled with it.
I looked at similar briefcases at a price range of $200-$400 but eventually bought this one, thinking that a little bit of compromise is okay as I do feel some uneasiness of spending that much money on a briefcase.
Well, I received the briefcase promptly and was pleasantly surprised. This is every bit as good as most of the much more expensive briefcases I've looked at. It is high quality, handsome, serious, nothing showy, just so businesslike and striking an image of confidence and trustworthiness.
The material seems to be very good quality (although probably not the best but we would be comparing this with something several times more expensive), and workmanship very good. Only time will tell its durability, though it does feel very durable.
With the price I paid, I feel sorry for having not bought something like this a long time ago. All the cheap briefcases and computer cases I bought in the past suddenly seem such a waste of money. Well, the truth is that I never saw a deal as good as this before.
By the way, my laptop computer fits in the briefcase very nicely. And this is important to me.
I'm a "he" so I am very particular in buy a so-called "man-bag" purse. This one looks good, is plenty big for my stuff: 7" tablet, "dumb" phone fits in phone pocket,(smart phone can go inside without too much trouble getting to it, I think) numerous credit cards, etc., had lots of pockets that I found helpful. All-in-all, a good buy.
the color is true, the quality rates a 5 star, i can't say its excellent to operate and or the features are because the plug in for the the ear plugs on the 4th generation with the ipod faceing you is to the right and the hole on this particular case is in the middle. so now the cover comes up and over and doesn't lay out on top of the ipod even : (
and i bought two of them one red and black. just becareful when ordering and make sure the hole for the ear plugs on the case is layed out right.
Purchased for work, needed a laptop case that could hold large binders. Nice sturdy hard sided case. So far it's been great, have had it one week, hoping it remains as reported. The lock system was difficult to set but managed.
Was uncertain buying this sight unseen for my husband. Wanted something for him that was quality, but not "fancy." This fits the bill perfectly and looks VERY expensive - it rivals my Coach briefcase with the quality of leather. Could not be happier! Highly recommend.
The description says that this meets FAA carryon standards, but if I'd look at those a little more closely, I should have seen that it's much larger than Delta's 22 inch allowance. Check your flight restrictions before ordering this! However, it's a beautiful case so I haven't decided if I'm returning it or not yet.
I just received today, but it looks exactly as the image. The leather seems to be good quality, although a little thin. However, for the size and price it is still a good deal (so far). I have been searching for a reasonably priced leather bag for a trip I'm going on in a few weeks and luggage has taken a beating so it's time for me to have adult luggage. I wish the leather had more of a cognac reddish tone, but it is a true brown as described. Lightweight and large inner compartment. There is absolutely no padding so be careful with fragile items.
I bought the bag to accomodate my daily commute from NJ to NYC. The leather is very rich and smells so leather. The size of the bag is the same as a regular backpack. There are two hidden pockets inside the bag and one pocket outside but at the back of the bag.
The briefcase arrived a day earlier than expected and it was everything that I hoped it would be from the pictures on line.
It was roomy, looked to be of high quality leather and more expensive by at least $150 from what I paid for it. I have been using it for several business trips now and it is holding up well.
I would recommend this briefcase to anyone who wants a roomy but light weight, leather case, with many compartments for files/misc. cosmetics, etc items for just trips to the office, or for travel.
Thanks so much, Lilli
