"I am a college professor and this is my go to bag. In 2012 I started using an iPad as my primary classroom device. I also use it at meetings and conferences. As it became more important to me, a needed a bag which could carry it around.
This bag is both stylish and practical. It does not hold a lot of material, but if you are looking for something slim (ipad plus a book and some papers), then you have the bag for you. I agonized for weeks over what to purchase. This bag has fit my needs perfectly.
I am a heavy user, it comes out every day and it stays with me all day as I move around campus. It has come on several trips with me as well. It still looks amazing. Worth the purchase."

"Obviously a well made bag. Rugged and masculine. It holds my journal, cellphone, ipod, wallet, sunglasses, portable hard drive and a point and shoot camera with no problem. It has two pen holders for my fountain pens. Card slots for my business cards. The leather is top notch. Treated it with saddle soap to give a nice patina to it. It even has sewned-in flaps at the top on each side so that when the bag is closed there are no open holes for rain to get in. Nice touch! My minor grip is with the black inner lining which creates a black hole. i wish it had a light color lining so you can find things easier. But overall, this is a well made bag that has an understated sophistication. You can't go wrong with this bag. The web strap is strong and has a shoulder pad and works very well cross body. All in all, it has an upscale Indiana Jones look. You won't get snickers from people. Its a manly bag."
"First the negatives:
1. The organization is not all that it could be. There are only a few card slots and pen/pencil holders, only one zippered compartment. As a result, most of my stuff falls to the bottom.
2. It fits my iPad, but not my iPad in its case.
1. It is gorgeous! Beautiful soft leather! Lots of compliments & Where-did-you-get-its"
2. Plenty of room.
My next purchase will be some kind of organizer for the interior. This is definitely a keeper."
