    Very nice, solidly-made, classically-styled leather bag. Sitting flat the bag is 16″ wide and 12″ tall. At the bottom it expands to 4.25″ deep. All the sewing is straight and strong. One thing that was unexpected was the firm (maybe metal?) support bar that spans the top of the bag and hidden just under the handle: this helps it keep it’s form. I was kind of hoping for a softer shape, but this support stops it from forming to my side as it hangs across my body. Still nothing to make me return it. I’m a larger person and the strap is adjustable and certainly long enough for cross-body use as well as shortening for shoulder use.

    Two things I thought might turn some people off:
    1) When it arrived there was some kind of sticky stuff under the main flap that had spread to the body of the bag. I can see that whatever it was it touched the inside edge of the flap and was spread slightly to the body of the bag. Perhaps it’s extra glue that escaped from where they bonded leather to leather then sewed it together? See pics where it touched the bag and remains on the inside flap. A quick wipe down got rid of it satisfactorily.
    2) Brass hardware on bag and strap seem solid except for one thing: the clips for the strap are not springy – they are not loose either, so I am not worried about the bag falling off, but they seem to stick in an open or closed position. See the pic attached of the strap clip, I have pushed it into an open position and let go of it, it does not snap back to closed unless I push it closed. It also does not push open unless I push it open. I’m okay with this as I don’t plan on removing the strap and I’m glad I can replace it as needed.

    I bought this for my boyfriend to carry throughout the city instead of a backpack. He loves it! It fits his 15′ computer and additional documents. The downfall was that the hlc label is actually capitalized and has a bull head pictured above the HLC. The material is nice but not as nice as the pictures insinuated. The shipping was also delayed for about a month and almost didn’t make it by christmas. I had to call an Amazon Rep to get it figured out.

    Overall it is a nice bag for the price and my boyfriend loves it.

    My wife bought this so she’d have something to carry her laptop in on her last business trip. She didn’t end up using it because she wanted something a little larger. Her loss was my gain. I love this bag… it fits my 15″ Macbook and/or my iPad and stays looking very slim. It’s replacing my leather backpack which I also loved but this looks more professional.
