Bomber Jacket Laptop Messenger
The cars slip past with halo eyes,
As bike tires scathe the crackling pavment.
The leather cakes and bakes in the metallic sunlight
As rising skyscrapers create needles in sight.
Books give weight to reason
Time past and in season.
Each page consumed within the textile patterns.
Atlas- the weight of the stone bearing the world within,
The skin embodies the stories which shape all reality.

The leather is of the finest quality. The workmanship is superior. I feel like a million bucks when I tote my stuff off to work.or my favorite coffee shop to browse the web. Just the greatest bag available anywhere.

Good, but not great
Bought this bag for everyday use. Overall a good product: the leather is quite nice, size is right and hardware seems durable. But, three specific items of which to be aware:
1. The strap is primarily cloth, not leather. It matches reasonably well, but I expected better at this price;
2. The strap has no pad or larger shoulder area as many bags do - again, not necessary, but something one would expect at this price; and,
3. The interior cloth seems a bit cheap - I worry that under daily use it is going to wear out quickly.
When fairly high-priced shipping is added, I think one could do as well or better on product at a lower overall price.

Elegant, Practical, Made to Last
Levenger's Bomber Jacket Laptop Messenger Bag is a fantastic bag.
It's made of thick, durable leather with a cool brown plaid pattern on the inside fabric (see pic). Under the flap, it's got two compartments, the front one made to hold documents and other loose stuff, the back to hold your laptop. The laptop compartment also has assorted individual pockets and nooks to hold miscellaneous business cards, pens, your keys, etc. On the opposite side of the bag, a big zippered pocket holds onto things you might need more often but won't want to dig through your bag every time to find, like your passport, IDs, tickets, stubs, stuff like that.
Besides the bottom, which is fixed with a thicker, less malleable material, the bag doesn't have any rigidity to it, so keep that in mind if that's something you want in your laptop's porter. You definitely will need a separate, smaller bag or case fitted for your computer to keep it nice and snug and to keep it from getting scratched by the inside zipper and built-in keychain (my only quibble with the otherwise exceptional bag).
All in all, the Bomber Jacket Laptop Messenger Bag is a beautiful, elegant, finely crafted transport for your computer, schoolbooks, or.... whatever!

I bought this bag after finding the Bomber Messenger too small. I am an IT consultant, and have used this bag daily for 9 months to haul a 15" laptop, a handful of paper files, a Circa notebook and miscellaneous items to client sites.
The bag is beautiful, durable, comfortable and functional with plenty of space, organizational structures. Despite heavy use, the bag appears like new and the well-designed strap never cuts into my shoulder. It also manages to look sleek even when it is overloaded.
I definitely recommend this bag to anyone who needs to create a good visual impression while still carrying a lot of items.

Nice bag, but handle omission is killer
I was given this bag as a gift, and thought it looked just great. I am constantly frustrated by the lack of a handle, however. I intend to find an appropriate strap to add by connecting it to the same hooks as the shoulder strap, but it won't be perfect.
Too bad the designers don't use the bag themselves, or there would doubtless have been a handle added long ago. Ah well.

Great Work Bag!
I bought this for my husband for Christmas to use as a work bag and he absolutely loves it! It is a very stylish and high quality bag that I know he will continue to enjoy for years to come.

Love my Messenger
I purchased mine several months ago and use it everyday. I actually prefer to put the strap over my head and put one arm through. This distributes the weight more evenly and keeps my hands free for other things. I like that I can store my keys, phone and pens inside, I always know where they are. Actually by carrying the bag the way I do it is hard to forget and leave on the train if that is how you travel. The leather is soft and superb, the construction is excellent and I just love my messenger.

It's a nice item but it's still missing something
The size of this item is ideal for my laptop however if it were to have a handle as well as the shoulder strap it would be better equipped for my everyday lifestyle.
