I ordered this bag on a whim because I work so much I need to always have my laptop on me. I have some nice totes which are great but I like the convenience of a backpack without looking like a student. I have a 2014 macbook retina 13" and it fits very well. The bag is slim but large so it's very compatible for a laptop/folders but it does't carry a ton of random stuff like my totes of a similar length and width. It's an incredibly clean design that hangs on the body surprisingly well, I find sometimes more luxe backpacks are not weighted well and flop weirdly. The leather is of a very high quality and SUPER thick on the front and back panels so it maintains structure no problem. Also, the closure on this bag works with small magnets on the purse and flap which works quite well but if you want a super secure closure for a backpack this isn't a zipper or drawstring. My particular piece (tuxedo) seemed to have a matte almost velvety finish on the leather instead of a more shinny one as I might have anticipated from the model in photos in front of the grey wall. That may be different for different bags, I could probably put some leather conditioner if I wanted more sheen but the matte look with the full grain leather is really unique and I haven't seen anything quite like it. A great buy, I'm excited to try more minor history products and I will be recommending to all my friends!
