    This bag is really beautiful. I’m very happy with it. It took a bit to time to get here, but it was worth the wait. Here is a brief list of some of the things I was pleasantly surprised with.
    1. My 17″ screen laptop fits in perfectly with my micro mouse adapter in a USB port.
    2. The bag actually stands on its own, which is amazeballs.
    3. It’s beautifully crafted – the leather, stitching, and canvas lining are top notch.
    4. It was nicely packaged in a beautiful protective draw string casing, which happened to be my favorite color.
    5. It doesn’t smell like chemicals at all. It smells like leather.
    6. It’s not rigid, thick, low quality leather. It’s soft and flexible, which makes it look very expensive. And the color is outstanding. It has a lot of character, but not so much that it would look inappropriate in a professional setting. I highly recommend it.
    7. The maker is ‘Passion Leather’, which was on the shipping label. I’m sure it raised a few eyebrows in my small town post office, but you have to keep them guessing, so it’s fine by me.

    Gotta say… This is exactly what I was looking for! The leather is quality. This isn’t padded “thick” leather from China like my Fossil bag, it’s leather on leather. People might think the leather is thin because we are used to leather things being big, bulky and thick. Mine is a little stiff due to its newness so I cant wait for it to loosen up with use and age. I fit my 17″ Sager NP9377 (18″ x 3″) laptop in it – and could have fit another one if I wanted. Don’t worry about size. And there’s plenty of pockets for files, tablets, notepads, etc. I will be using this for moving my laptop daily so I will have to add some padding in the bottom. Added padding and a soft case and I feel pretty good about this protecting my “investment”.

    To whomever complained about the smell – give me a break. On a scale from 1 – 10 this is a 2. My memory foam mattress bad and I slept on it with my nose an inch from that chemical smell for hours every night. The smell from the bag smell more like a mink oil. I actually like it.

    The construction uses single stitching but its pretty thick stitching so it appears like it will hold well for years. If it doesn’t I will come back and post again.

    All in all – 5 stars all the way. I love that it doesn’t look like some sweat shop bag with an expensive name brand on it. It looks like real craftsmanship – the kind we here in the US aren’t used to seeing anymore… if at all.

    I bought this bag one year ago. There is only one thing I dont like and that is the little piece of leather that is supposed to hold the strap (extra) I thought it would tear off. It hasnt. I dont know.. I took some unflattering pictures of this bag one year later. I think the pictures speak for themselves.

    No rips
    No stains
    no “flaking leather”
    It is broken in and seriously as nice as the day I bought it.
