This bag is wonderful and smells fabulous with the thick full grain leather. I have carried this with two laptops and files inside and like that I can adjust the mouth of the bag with the nipple rivet straps. Also, I have used this for travel and like that I can strap it closed with the buckle closer when it goes through the airport scanners. With the buckle closed and the nipple rivets closed to the tightest hole it is hard to get fingers inside which I like while traveling through airports or cities or when I have it in backpack mode. Great bag with multiple uses!
I love this bag! The leather is thick and gorgeous (same exact dcb from SBL) and the lining is light and soft. I put my mobile in the outside pocket with my keys. I put my swell water bottle in the open outside pocket and its perfect! Inside its wide open (I have actually hidden money under the secret flap). I was worried this bag would be a pain to put in backpack mode but it was easy and comfortable AND looks great! I typically wear this over my shoulder and I love it. My preacher at church had a fit over this bag and wanted one for himself! It's that good. Worth. Every. Penny.
