Rated 5 out of 5 by ColonelSmoothing Great bag and better than I had expected
Overall, a great quality bag and excellent design. I live in Seoul, so I ordered this bag through the Korean site, which cost me quite a bit more than the US price. However, it was definitely worth it. I have had the bag for several months and it ages well. While the leather straps are slower to open than a zipper or clip, they look much better and have a good feel. Other reviews noted that it is difficult for shorter people to use the straps, but I am about 5'10" and have no problem with the length of the strap (there is a good 6-7" more that I could shorten the strap if needed). The only drawback for me is that the bag is a little bigger than I had anticipated, and messenger bags are not particularly good at carrying heavy weight or large objects, though having a big bag is hardly a complaint.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Nick Decent but surprised by lack of thought
This bag works for a quick commute. It does, howerver, have a few shortfalls. First, the shoulder strap doesn't stay in place for more than a few days. I'm 6'4, and even for me the strap is so long that the bag hangs below my waist. Every few days I find I have to shorten the strap again because it has slipped back down to its full length. A second issue is the pen slots inside the bag. Why are there no bottoms in them? The pen/pencil falls straight through. This seems utterly dumb. Lastly, It'd be nice to have a front pocket on the outside of the bag, accessible without having to undo the straps and lift up the outer flap.
Overall, I'm happy enough with the bag to use it for my daily commute, but if I were going to use it any more often, I'd probably keep looking for something else.

It's a nice bag, but strap only adjusts so far—which makes it uncomfortable to carry if you happen to be short. Not the easiest to open and close quickly, but on the plus side, makes it hard for others to sneak a hand in if you plan on traveling. Does fit a 15" laptop and some other items, but strap... it kinda ruined it for me...
