PROS: This bag is beautifully made, lovely to look at, and is highly functional. I haven't had it for too long, but I look forward to using it to carry a 15" laptop and other books. It would also be excellent as a weekender bag, or a carryon bag. The price for this item is outstanding, as the quality and appearance of the bag suggests it would cost much more than the listed price. It's a beautiful addition to the bags I have, and I look forward to using it!
