Product Description

Style: Bennett. Vintage vegetable tanned leather has that dark and sultry look about it. This Visconti product is made from the finest leather and has that wonderful new leather aroma. Leather items may have wrinkles, scars, scratches that are inherent characteristics and natural beauty of the hide. This is strong, high quality leather and with its smooth polished surface and distressed antique finish, there's no doubt that this briefcase has plenty of attitude. If you covet the look of old, comfortably worn-in leather you won't have to wait the years it takes for the look to develop naturally as the leather has been specially prepared so that it takes on that much coveted, vintage effect much more quickly. The surface is designed to scratch easily but these marks will gently blend in over time adding to the character of the bag. Please remember that as leather is a natural product, the intensity of the colour will vary slightly from hide to hide during the dyeing process, making each bag totally unique. This is a big bag with good capacity and there are plenty of pockets for A4 sized note books, files and document wallets. The long adjustable strap is made from leather topped hardwearing polyester and has a sliding rubber shoulder grip for comfort when carrying heavy loads. Wear either on the shoulder or hands-free, across-body. The main flap is luxuriously lined with suede.

Was looking for a university bag and this seems to be just the perfect size, without being an entire rucksack.

I am very happy with it so far. It has a good quality construction and has a rather stylish/posh look to it.

It can easily carry a days worth of A4 books and binders with room for a bottle of water. The back slot will just squeeze in a 17" Macbook Pro and the font pockets are just large enough to fit a couple of A5 notebooks or an iPad. There are several zip pockets and a third internal zipped compartment. Bag can be easily carried on my back using the shoulder strap at minimum length, even when riding a bike.

Its not obvious from the photos, but behind the buckle straps there are two push button click-clips for easily opening/closing the bag. However if you wish to close the bag after it has been fully loaded, you will need to punch a couple of extra holes in the leather buckle strap to give you the extra length.

I was initially dissapointed when the briefcase arrived as I was expecting a more matt finish antique type leather as shown in the photo. What arrived was a reddy-brown smooth leather which was a satin finish. Although I was a bit subdued about this my wife was very impressed and loved the finish and the case so we agreed that it was a belated Christmas present! The design of the case is excellent with many useful zipped pockets and holders for pens and a phone.. What is not clear from the pictures is that underneath the buckles is a quick -release fastener whch makes the case very easy to use. The buckles are only for show but for me they add that authentic old-school look which makes this case so attractive.

It is superbly made with reinforcement in vulnerable areas which should see that the case lasts for many years. It exudes quality in a way that is difficult to quantify. You know when you see something that it is right. For me this is very right!. I can imagine myself still carring this case around in 10 to 15 years time maybe with worn corners and faded leather but still in one piece and still doing it's job. I hope I am right!.

After the initial dissapointment of the colouring, reality set in and I ended up ordering another one for myself, such is the draw of this well recommended briefcase.

I read the reviews before buying this and especially the comment that it marks easily and wondered if I was doing the right thing. Well I certainly did!

The packaging and protection that it arrives in is splendid and really could not be better. The case itself is a lovely item with plenty of space for my books and the centre zipped pocket makes a great place for the iPad with protection from knocks by the outer pockets.

The actual finish of the leather surface looks great, as it gradually wears in it looks better and better. I think it is true that if you went bashing it about through door frames etc it would scratch up but after quite a few weeks of use and moderate care mine looks just as it did when it arrived.

I think it will last a long time but I would not hesitate in buying another one or indeed another product from this manufacturer.

This is my second Visconti leather bag and I really like it! The leather is slightly darker than it appears in the image, but personally I prefer it that way.

The interior is a good size - it will hold a book or small laptop quite comfortably without being too bulky.

Overall, I'm very pleased with it.

I spent a lot of time looking at bags online and in shops before deciding on this one. It needed to be big enough for my lap top and other work items. Once ordered it arrived quickly and nicely packaged- but not too much packaging. I am delighted with it, the bag seems robustly made and the inside has some pleasing details. The outside is just lovely, although the leather is quite stiff at the moment.
The depth may not be enough for everyone- you couldn't put in many bulky items and expect it to close so a brief case is a good description. All in all I am glad I didn't spend more on a well known brand- this will last for years and looks classy and a bit different.

Let me first off say that although I have only had the briefcase a few days the look and feel of it ouzes quality. My previous case was a much cheaper version and fell part bit by bit in less than a year. I therefore went for quality this time and I was not dissapointed on that front.
The niggle I do have is that despite all the internal pockets I am struggling to get all my kit in. I have managed to fit my 15" widescreen laptop in one section very snuggly but there is no space for the power unit or cables. The other main section is taken up with a few thin folders and an A4 pad. Pens, mobile and other small items are in the bag but if I put something in the front pockets I struggle to close the clasps. I therefore followed another reviewers comment and put an extra hole in the strap.
I am sure The leather will give over time and I will adapt to the bag which I am certain I will stick with for the forseeable future.

I bought this bag after browsing various stores and would definately recommend it to anyone.

It is made of very good quality leather and has plenty of compartments and pockets.

Honestly, there is not one thing that I do not love about this bag!
