Rated 4 out of 5 by Duffy Great look, but falling apart quickly
I received this bag as a gift from my brother to use as a laptop/book bag. I love it, I do. The look is great and the waxed canvas is sharp. But after a few months of use, the leather hoop that holds the ring which connects the strap to the bag ripped out, and there is serious wear on the bottom corners. It's not like I'm throwing this bag around willy-nilly. Just using it for travel and to and from work. I just think that this would last longer. Again, love the bag, but just wish it was more durable.

Rated 2 out of 5 by disappointed Great Looking Bag, but Poor Functionality
I received this bag as a gift, and I have loved using it. However, the bag has been used minimally for less than a year, and the leather straps that are anchored to the body of the bag have started to rip. The bag has only a number of days remaining.
So, great looking bag...but poor functionality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bronson Beautiful, with minor flaws
This bag was just as the website picture showed. However there were two minor flaws that we found. The bag was purchased for my brother who will be traveling for quite sometime with it. He is about 6'1" and with the strap adjusted as short as possible it hits at his hip. We wish there was a little more freedom of adjustment so we could make it shorter if needed. Our second flaw was the quick release. The picture does not show it nor could I find any mention of it in the description, but the leather connected to the buckle can be released without using the buckle at all. The top part is hooked onto a metal stud intended to be a quick release. The bad and leather are good quality, but as this bag is intended to be used for quite awhile we are worried about stretching out the leather with the quick release. Beautiful bag. Just small construction things to be aware of.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rosenkavalier Stylish, well-made bag
This sturdy, well-made bag has a distinctive look. It's very roomy--holds iPad, books, phone, notebooks, and more. It would also accommodate a laptop. The bag is relatively lightweight and is comfortable to carry. The interior has slots for pens and pockets for small items. Two large outside pockets come in handy. This would be a great bag for editors, freelancers, musicians, graduate students, teachers--almost anyone.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Casey What about the short guys?
Bought this for my husband who's 5'7" and the bag is just too long! We think we've adjusted the straps to make bag as short as it can, but it's just not useable. Also disappointed in the top handle straps. One kind of just flops over and looks cheap. Will end up returning it, sadly.
Also, when in the store, the display laptop bag looked much easier to open and close.
