Summary: This bag has held up well for about 18 months of daily use and abuse. The only wear so far is on the bottom corners, the semi-shiny nylon material is starting to wear. The leather trim is in perfect condition, as are the leather handles. They are the PERFECT length- great for carrying, or just as good for over the shoulder. I got it for the new rules for carry-on laptop bags, my old one was quite large and not allowed.
Summary: I find this bag to be exactly as described in the photos and description. It fits my Mac Book Pro and my Dell laptops with plenty of room for other items. I haven't used it enough to speak to the durability but will be sure to come back and edit my comment or post a follow-up if it falls apart.
