Customer reviewsClipper Bag in Sundance Floodlight Tan Leather Review this product
Great Quality, DurableReview by D
This is a large bag. Many will find the "compact" version adequate. But when the compact version won't do, this roomier version will carry laptops easily (even 15 laptops) along with a charger, mouse, legal notepads, and a host of other items. If you need something larger, you're probably going to carry enough stuff that you should start thinking about something with wheels.
You might find the strap too short by several inches. You can try drilling (not poke) additional holes but if that isn't enough, Tusting sells replacement straps that are 6" and 12" longer, but the shipping costs from England are stiff -- but they are very nice people to deal with.
Made of full grain cowhide, the bag is as durable as leather gets. This is not a painted leather like most of the goatskin junk you see these days-- it is stained and waxed. It has a slightly waxy feel and should be retreated occasionally with a high quality leather cream. Dry leather wears out faster than treated leather.
Rub it down with a white tissue before first use to be sure no excess wax/oil will come off.
The extra closures for the two front pockets might be overkill but they give the bag a certain look that perhaps is more ranchhand than urbanite--but look at the pics and decide for yourself. It's very well made--the pattern cuts are even and matching cuts are uniform, the stitching is even and straight and the stitch lines all end with backstitiching. Tusting hand makes very nice bags.
