I bought this bag on a whim for my partner. When I received it, I was a bit disappointed because I was expected more of a premium quality. The stitching on the outside wasn't that nice as it seemed very obvious - this is seen on the pictures provided by Amazon so I should have inspected it closer. The outside material is mostly suede so might get ruined quicker. The inside looked good though. It has a pretty distinct smell when it arrives but this quickly goes away with use. I don't see the point of the side zips - it doesn't reduce the size of the bag.
The size of the bag was a lot bigger than I expected! I was expecting an A4 folder size bag, maybe a bit bigger... just enough for a 15" laptop with extra depth or something. Instead, this bag is a lot bigger so you can fit a laptop and a lot of other stuff too. Check out the dimensions before you purchase.
This bag isn't for me, however, my partner loves it and has received a lot of compliments from his family, friends and even strangers about it and where he got it from!
