I rarely get excited about laptop bags, because really, they're bags. But this leather messenger bag for 15" laptops is frankly gorgeous, and I love to show it off!

* genuine leather, silky smooth & soft to the touch; I'm not a leather expert but this certainly seems to be high quality leather, none of that bonded stuff
* perfect fit for my 15" Macbook Pro; no room to wiggle around, one of the most secure fits I've seen on any bag
* good layout with lots of room for paperwork & folders, pens/pencils, laptop & accessories, etc
* plenty of padding to protect my computer
* zippers are high quality and work smoothly
* leather is a bit on the soft side, which is good! but means it gets dinged up more quickly than I'd like. I've put a few scratches in it already. Treat this gently, for sure.
* the clip attaching the strap to bag isn't quite the quality I expected; it's certainly durable and won't break, but feels a little cheaper than I expected. This is probably the only real disappointment about the bag, but I still love it.
* This is being labeled as "crazy horse leather"; however, I wouldn't really say it has the weathered appearance I would expect from that description. The finish on the bag is quality, but it's a very regular brown across the whole bag without any significant variations or antiquing. If you're just looking for a beautiful laptop bag, this is a great one. If you love the well-loved look, this may not be what you're looking for.
I am thrilled with this bag despite my minor disappointments noted above. Highly recommended!
