"I LOVE this bag. I have been using it for 2-3 weeks every day and haven't noticed any wear on it and I'm typically a little hard on bags. I have gotten many compliments from both men and women on its appearance and professional look. I purchased the cognac brown color and it is colored as shown online in the photos. The lining is a neutral tan color and seems nice. My 15 inch Macbook Pro Retna, fits loosely in the laptop pouch, but I don't worry about it being safe because it is very well padded. The leather is incredibly soft and of very high quality. The shoulder strap is adjustable, so much so that I carry the bag across my body with room to spare on the length (I'm 5' 6"). In response to previous reviews: I have had no issues with the magnetic latch for the laptop pouch with my laptop inside. I did try to put other stuff in with my laptop (really overfilling the bag) and noticed issues with the bag shutting by the magnetic mechanism, so perhaps that is what the previous review was talking about. I also find that the bag sits up nicely on its own. I do not carry a ton of stuff, only my laptop, the charger, a portfolio and a few other miscellaneous items, but I've had no issues with it tipping over. I love the bag and will look into purchasing other Piel items in the future. The bag is much sturdier than other bags I've had previously. I am pleased with my purchase and would recommend this bag to a professional of either gender."

"Absolutely beautiful bag. I have the dark brown color and it just screams class. The leather looks to be high quality and feels thick, so I think this will last a long time. I believe it came with a 5 year warranty as well. It is extremely comfortable to carry and fits easily into the overhead compartment (and I'm on a regional jet every week, which doesn't provide much overhead space). The separate computer pocket with the velcro makes getting through securing a breeze and is plenty wide enough (with room to spare for my 15" laptop and a small travel umbrella). I keep my portfolio and notepad in the front as well as my laptop charger, a kindle, my external hard-drive, usb drives, and ipod as well as other accessories, and I can easily latch the bag closed. And it remains closed. It certainly requires a little organization and planning to get everything in there, but I don't have any problems with the clasps not staying shut. This is a great bag for business travel and I would recommend it to anyone."

"I was looking for a leather briefcase/bag that could hold my laptop, mobile printer(6.25"x3.25"x13.5"), and portable scanner. Most of the others I looked at had to many dividers making it impossible to fit the printer. This bag looks great, seems very well made and works perfectly for my needs."

"What a wonderful bag! I help develop several Global Fortune 500 level conferences a year, and am a designer as well, so for me, the look walks the line between business and style. This bag fits my 15" MacBook Pro, all my cords, large audiophile headphones for the plane, my papers, accessories, etc. I was surprised to find that it has an expandability aspect to it. The inner computer compartment is stiff and sturdy, while the outer compartment folds to slim the bag profile. It stands upright, and top dowel helps the bag retain its form. And finally, the leather is gorgeous. I am so pleased I got it, and the price was the best I found at eBags."

"Great bag. Lots of room and very easy to organize. Stays in place even when front buckles unfastened. Nice quality leather with great appearance. Very pleased with this bag. Have tried quite a few in recent months and found this one to be the best. Would recommend to others."

"I'm very happy with the bag. I've gotten multiple comments on how nice it looks. I think the leather looks to be pretty good quality. This may not be the best bag if you plan to lug a laptop around; I think you would need something with more paddding. I am very happy with Piel's service by the way. I had a buckle on the bag knocked off and they were able to replace it for me. I'm definitely going to remember the prompt service when/if I have to replace this bag."

"Very Nice briefcase, it would have been nice if it had been a tad bit larger. But for a majority of what I use it for it is good."

"Defective design and NOT durable - clasp broke in 2 months. I bought the bag after reading the glowing reviews about this bag on this site. After using the bag regularly for 2 months, I wonder how many of these reviews are genuine, for the reasons below. First, the positive: the bag is decently handsome. I have received several compliments on its appearance. Also, it has enough space to hold couple of books, some file folders, a laptop and a tablet. Now, the negatives, which significantly outweigh the positives. (1) The design is defective. The bag has two flap covers - one with clasps that cover the compartments for the files/books, and a second that covers the laptop compartment. The problem is that the second cover is very short and held in place only by a couple of magnets. The second cover rarely stays closed when the bag is full - e.g., when there are a couple of books and/or file folders, a laptop and a tablet in their respective compartments. I believe that is a major design flaw - either the laptop compartment should have been skinnier, or the flap cover should have been longer and/or secured using, e.g., clasps. (2) The bag does not stand well on its base when full. It almost invariably topples over on the side that holds the books and/or file folders. (3) This is the biggest negative - the materials are not sturdy. I have used the bag for exactly 59 days now, and the metal clasp that attaches the strap to the dowel road broke as I was carrying the bag. In it at that time were two books, three thin file folders, one 14" Thinkpad laptop and an iPad. Given that the bag is supposedly designed to carry the weight of that many items, the breakage is completely unacceptable. For the above, I would strongly recommend AGAINST buying the bag. Also, now I am finding it difficult to return the item to eBags. Also, Piel's warranty policy does not appear to be very customer-friendly (admittedly, I have not tried using that yet)."

"I was looking for a replacement for my laptop carrier, and wanted to make an investment for something that would be beautiful, timeless, and durable. I am very pleased with the quality of this product. It's fasteners are very secure and it can hold a great deal. I cannot yet speak to it's durablity over time, but I imagine it will be good considering the quality."

"This is a really nice, elegant bag. The laptop compartment is roomy: it fits my MacBook Pro (15") in a neoprene sleeve with room to spare. The front compartment has a lot of smaller pockets, which is nice for organizing pens, cables, etc. All in all, a great bag. I did have a problem with the shoulder strap: the buckles were too tight to fit on to the bag. I ended up sanding down the buckles on the strap a little bit."
