I just received this bag yesterday, and I must say I am pleasantly surprised... It looks exactly like the pics, is of a great size (will hold a portfolio, day planner, tablet/laptop, cell phone, passport, wallet, etc). There are numerous external pockets, has an internal zippered pocket, a LONG, adjustable shoulder strap, and great leather accents. This will be my "Go-To" run-around, casual briefcase/carrier bag.
I am using my shoulder bag to hold AR 15 Magazines. The 30 round mag. fits very well in the bag. Although I live in Colorado and 15 rounds is the maximum number of rounds we can have in a mag. you can buy the 30 round Mag. which has been altered internally to hold only 15.
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.
The details in the description were not particularly clear. Here's what the bag really is like... There are two outer pockets (a large colorful one in the front and a black one in the back), but both only close with a small velcro strip. You can't put anything small and important in those pockets, because it will easily fall out. There are two side mesh pockets for carrying drinks, and those work well. When you lift the colorful flap, there are places to put 3 writing utensils. To the left, there is a small zipper pocket, just large enough to store an eraser and some extra mechanical pencil lead. (To give you some perspective, I can't fit a small bottle of Advil in it.) On the other side of the pencil/pen holder, there are three flaps, but no school supplies will fit in there. Maybe you could use it as a business card holder, but I would imagine the bright colors of this bag appeal more to students than to working professionals. Finally, there is a small mesh pouch, which I use for additional things, like highlighters and extra pencils. There is one main pouch on the inside, and it is a good size. It holds a 3-ring binder and 2 textbooks well. However, this would not be a good bag to use if you are transporting a laptop around, as there is no padding on the inside. The bag appears to be well-made. I expect it to hold up for at least 1-2 school years. As a college professor who is using this bag to carry supplies and materials to and from class, it's not perfect. I wish I had somewhere secure to put my calculator and other small items, but it will suffice. For the price, it is a reasonably good bag.
