It's OK but.....,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bags World YAAGLE High Quality Handmade shoulder bags 100% Crazy horse HANDMADE Leather Men's Briefcase Handbag Messenger Bag Laptop Bag Cowboy,15.5"(39cm) L x 3"(7.6cm) D x 11.5"(29cm) H,Dark coffee (Apparel)
It's a well made bag and fits my Dell D610 exactly. All the buckles, starp and stitching are good and solid and I think it'll last a long time. Just a few negatives for me hence the 3 stars:
- The leather is a kind of waxy finish nubuck type. Not altogether bad but it is a bit greasy and I don't think it'll ever look worn in.
- The sizing isn't generous - it's tight for a laptop, notebook and a few odd pens etc. I had to bin the laptop cover to get it all in.
- The zips on the front pockets cach on the lining and have 90% turns on them. The stifness of the leather makes them quite difficult to open and close and I've already caught the zip on the lining a few times and had to cut it out.
Reviewed after a year of moderate use.
Well, one of the springs in the strap buckle failed causing the strap to come off when the bag is put down. The seller asked for photo's which isn't ever a good sign. Anyway, they offered to replace the strap (good), but pointed me towards the item on Amazon which I have to pay postage for @ £8.99 (not good). Pretty disappointed and I can't really see why they'd market the strap separately unless there was a problem with the product. I shan't be replacing it and will buy another bag from a different seller. Completely understand that these things happen but the customer service is very poor. I could probably push a claim as a defective item but the item isn't that good anyway IMO (see my original review).
I guess it isn't overpriced when you look at the cost of these things but I probably wouldn't buy it if I saw it in the flesh first. Not the sellers fault as the description is accurate.
