Stylish and sturdy

PostedJanuary 5, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Looks great
The bag gives a very good impression. The leather is shiny and seems very sturdy. It definitively does not look like a messenger part, and works very well in business meetings.
The bag is very huge, and nicely fits my 15.6" business laptop, as well as charger, notebook etc.
The only critique I have so far is that it is only one big compartement, so smaller items just end up in the bottom.

Well constructed bag, needs more pockets

PostedNovember 5, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Looks great
Cons: Heavy, Expensive
This is well built, a little pricey for what you get compared to other options. But I do love the style. It is a hard leather bag, so it will take some time to soften and mould to your back.
Intrernal pockets are average at best, this needs to be thought out a little better. I can just fit in a set of keys, phone and wallet in the pockets, my sunglasses and anything else just has to sit in the big caverness space that is the rest of the bag.
I'd buy again, but still looking for something else I can put inside with more pockets.

beautiful but is it your bag

PostedMarch 21, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Looks great
Cons: Heavy, not fully weatherproof
.The bag was all I had expected and more. It is a wonderful piece of made-in-England heavy leather n'webbing held together by stitching, rivets and, believe it or not, screws. It will last for ever and will get better with age. It is also big; bigger than I had imagined. It will swallow a laptop and a change of underwear plus a pullover or rolled up chinos. In fact, it would make a perfect flight bag for overnight trips. Above all it is drop dead gorgeous.
I would give it five stars but it has its drawbacks. It is most definitely not an all-weather holdall. In only a moderate shower the contents would get wet.Even if the leather held out the rain, it would get in in the gap between the outer flap and the open sides of the top It is not designed as a practical 24hour courier bag. It is also heavy and slightly cumbersome. Inside there is a canvas and leather wallet that is attached to the sides with popstuds which is a thing of beauty in itself, but is not entirely practical.
This is for someone who wants a bag which can be carried on a bike but which will look the part in a boardroom or office. So nice is it, that I suspect many will never see a bike at all..
It is expensive but for what it is I would say it is great value.

This is a beautiful, practical, well design and highly prized bag that I love. I use it for my 10 mile commute to work and it sits perfectly. The bag looks fantastic and is very eye catching.
