I bought this for a friend who had admired my $80+ backpack laptop case. The only leather on my case is the flap and straps - the rest is microfiber - not nearly as nice. Long story short - he loved the case. It's easy on the back, slim and not clunky to carry around, and much more sophisticated than so many you see today. If you're planning to toss this on the back of your motorcycle or go 4-wheeling with it - this probably is not the case for you. But for the daily commute, laptops that travel from home to office and job to job regularly - it's light, neat and professional-looking. Great bargain at this price.
