Rated 5 out of 5 by PapaGood MASCULINE & FUNCTIONAL...IDEAL FOR THE MODERN MAN I bought this bag as a gift to myself last night...and by far one of the best gifts I've gotten for myself in some time. I'm a recent college grad (and ongoing student for another degree) and I've transitioned from the miltary to the IT field not too long ago. This bag is a head-turner wherever I go, I get compliments on the bag and the look and statement it makes. I pair this bag with my many other coach products within this line and Coach has nailed the exact product I've been needed for my professional/business/home lifestyle. You can read the previous reviews on this bag on its functionality and get an idea on how functional and big this bag is. However, no review will compare to you actually walking into a coach store and wearing it for yourself. I'm already looking at the winter bleecker to add to my collection, but after this tote, I don't need any other bag for my business. I have a very busy lifestyle and a laptop or messenger bag just doesn't cut it for me. I have a big family and this bag helps me stay very organized with other fine products from Coach. I highly recommend this bag to anyone looking to have a bag that will last for a very long time and is timeless at the same time. August 9, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Rafe A real Mary Poppins bag! This bag holds EVERYTHING (and looks great while doing it)! As a college student, I pretty much have to carry my life around in a bag- like when your friends call you to meet them up in the library to study at 11pm for that big exam in a couple of days but your study essentials are mostly at home 30 minutes away. I went through the messenger bag phase; like every college student does, but got tired of carrying around something that looked like it was going to burst if you put one more piece of paper in it. Being a pre-med major, I wanted something that was casual enough for daily use but still look good for med school interviews and the like (backpacks crush/wrinkle suits and dress shirts like nothing else).This bag is deceptively large (the pics don't do it justice), it took me a day or two to get used to the size but it was well worth it. About as long as a normal messenger but much taller- if the messenger is like a rectangle then this tote feel more like a square. The side pockets have more than enough space for a travel umbrella, liter size bottle of water, and/or a really giant pair of sunglasses. The pics don't really show them, but there are large pockets on the front and back of the bag. The front of the bag has two open pockets side by side- you can fit a lot in them. The back of the bag as one zippered pocket that's large enough to put a folder, some loose papers, an iPad (the full size ones), etc. Inside the main compartment: on the front side of the bag, there are 4 pockets (2 rows of 2); on the back side of the bag there's a medium sized zippered pocket. The quality, feel, smell of the leather is awesome. The links attaching the removable shoulder strap are made from a thick and heavy metal- so you know it won't break. In case you're worried a guy can't use it/won't look good carrying it- it doesn't look girly at all and there isn't a day that goes by so far that I haven't got a compliment from both sexes (but of course girls can use it too haha). Depending on what I need that day, there are 2 kinds of "loads":1.) Everyday "load"=-1/2" binder-iPad 2-50 or so 4x6" index/flash cards-1 subject spiral notebook-journal (5x8.5")-breast-pocket wallet-box of Altoids/ pack of gum-graphing calculator-iClicker-medium size pen box (those plastic sliding ones from Walgreens)-small "cosmetic case" (for lip balm, mini stapler, lotion, mouthwash, etc)-bottled water-bag of pretzels/ fruit-travel umbrella2.) Heavy duty "load"= everything above plus:-macbook pro-charging block and cables-external HDD-a large textbook (one of the few that aren't in the iPad)With the everyday load the bag is a good weight and not heavy at all. But with the heavy duty load it gets really heavy very fast because the leather give the bag a good weight alone. It's ok though because any bag would feel heavy with all that in there. When you put the bag down it'll stand on its own but it's not too stiff, I've broken mine in a bit and it still stands on its own. Both the strap and the handles are wide so it's comfy to carry even when heavy. The leather handles are actually very stiff, which is great because they stay wide and don't dig into your fingers when you're carrying a heavy load.My only gripe is the bottom of the bag- it doesn't "pool" and keeps its shape well on the bottom, but it's about the same thickness as the bag is all around. It offers no protection if you're carrying a laptop, so you need to get a padded sleeve or you'll risk denting your computer every time you set the bag down. My fix? I usually lay down the leather journal on the bottom of the bag and then put my laptop on top of it (gives it about a 1/2" of a cushion). Overall, this is a really great bag, and the quality makes me feel like it'll last for a very long time. March 27, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by leledavis Great Leather I purchased as a school bag as a college student, and I think it's amazing but slightly heavy with schools books and heavy leather. However I adjust to a swing style and the weight doesn't seem to make a difference. December 2, 2012
Our handsomely rugged utility tote is updated with graphic colorblocking in striking contrast leathers, and a spacious interior that easily accommodates a laptop. The simple addition of the comfortable crossbody strap converts it from business bag to weekender.
