An heirloom bag
This arrived a couple of weeks ago and I have fallen in love with it. It is very well made, stands upright, even when you know the load inside is uneven, is lighter than it would seem to be and looks amazing.
I choose the tobacco finish partly so that I would get a worn in look, and it's working. I'm looking forward to using this bag for many many more years.

I have been looking to upgrade to a new leather briefcase for a long time, and have been searching for the right balance of quality and price. My most recent bag lasted me about three years and began to fall apart. I use my bag everyday to transport my laptop and a handful of work files. I ultimately decided on the Tusting clipper following the positive reviews and a good sale offer. I could not be happier with my selection. It arrived in a beautiful box and felt bag, and the quality of the leather and stitching is outstanding. It is a little smaller than my previous bag, but it is actually perfect for a 15" laptop and 5-6 work files, along with other misc supplies in the front pockets. There is no laptop sleeve inside but I just use a simple padded laptop sleeve, which works very well.. It is very comfortable on your shoulder and looks great - I have received many compliments! I opted to use a waterproof cream on the leather and am very pleased. I think this bag will last for many years to come!

A Beautiful Investment
This is a bag that inhabits that wonderful space of items that get better with age, retain their classic look, and will last for decades. It has accompanied me around the world -- for business or pleasure -- and into the office almost every day since I bought it three years ago. A bag like this is not just a purchase; it's an investment. Treat yourself on your birthday (as I did) and enjoy it for years to come.

It's a luxury, not necessarily a tool
There so much to love about this bag - the rich leather, the SMELL! the superb stitching and the rich colors. Stylistically, it really makes a statement. It would be just that much better if it had a better reinforced bottom. Maybe with feet? The leather takes a beating there and so does anything in the bottom of your bag. Overall, I enjoy this bag for what it is - a high quality, functional business accessory.

Sleek, Sexy Bag
I purchased this bag as a replacement to another Levenger bag I had for five years. I was initially drawn to the color and aesthetics of the bag, but what truly struck me when I opened the box was the quality of the leather and the bag's craftsmanship.
My 15" MacBook Pro fits with no issue, although anything larger would likely not fit. Also, I am able to fit a full-sized auxiliary keyboard in - along with my laptop - although the fit is extremely tight. If you don't carry a keyboard with you, that's not an issue.
I highly suggest this bag for anyone looking for a sleek, relatively compact, yet highly functional bag that will last for years and years.

Great Bag for Work!
I've been looking for a new bag for work for a while. My old back was too small/not deep enough. This bag is 6" deep, and the pockets in the front are great for eyeglasses, phones, datebooks, etc. The craftsmanship is excellent, and the leather smells great! Also, I really recommend getting it in tobacco. The Tusting bags are terrific leather products!

I needed a bag that would look distinguished in academia, while being appropriate in more business-like environments. This is it. The leather is terrific. The bag feels great on your shoulder or in your hand. The fasteners are easy to use. I can't wait to see what it looks like in ten years.

Matched Bags for Traveling Light
Matched this briefcase with the smaller of the two Tusting grips and have made two trips so far. One trip was business where the combo scored high in desired functionality. The other was pleasure where the ooooh-factor and envy of the other guests was well worth the price. Added the leather red rope expandable file to act as an inner pocket to give me added flexibility in how I use the briefcase. I'm happy with both.
