Laptop friendly, loads of compartments, comfy straps - what more do you want? This bag is well made from top to bottom. The stitching is on point throughout, zips are all metal and the nature of pleather means that it can take a beating. The pleather has a shiny finish. It's not matte, as you can see from the photos. With age, however, this will undoubtedly change. We reckon it'll look amazing after a bit of use. We loved the compartmentalisation of this bag -there are lots of little sleeves and inner pockets. We'd have preferred it if it was bereft of the 'three box' branding but it isn't something you notice. Overall this is a top notch bag worthy of your shoulders.
