(Global Hiker Review, --- May 22, 2012 --- By DJC)
I've always preferred leather bags.
This bag replaces a Roots backpack which was much like a book bag that I carried around for more than twenty years purchased at a thrift store. So I did some comparison shopping as I like to wear things like this out before buying another. I justify the cost based on how long the other one satisfied.
I count ten d-rings of aluminum coated brass. As my previous pack had none this provides opportunity to attach other items. The versatile handles and straps are also a treat; they were fixed shoulder straps on my last one which routinely required new nylon stitching every few years as well as zippers that would wear out and needed replacing. No zippers here and every stress point includes bolts.
The height and length of the bag are great and the only problem might be the depth which is a little narrow but am sure it will ride out with wear …….. ...»
(what i was looking for ---- January 4, 2012 By alxwilson) ----
Just what I was looking for. Rugged, not to large, just right for 2 week trips that require a daily carry sack with enough room to carry a days worth of stuff. the buckles are a bit to shiny but some rubbing can fix that. Three compartments are good for separating daily food and water from rain and mosquito gear and jacket stuff. Thick leather to withstand abuse.
I wanted something that looked good but was not "pretty". This fits the bill. .. ...»

(Beautiful bag., --- October 22, 2011 --- By Luis Perez)
This bag is a must for anyone looking for a leather case. It is sturdy and looks great. Leaves color residue in the beginning so break it in carefully. Nothing that stains though, and not bad enough that I would take a star away. .. ...»
(Keep it simple, --- March 24, 2012 --- By David Firestone,amazon buyer) This bag is an exploratory example of what can be accomplished with a simple classic design, and good workman ship. One could spend a lot less, but only receive a far inferior product. One could spend a lot more, and receive a marginally better product. I am a man who appreciates value, and that is what this bag is. I would suggest this for anyone who need storage space and wants to look professional. I could certainly see this bag in a professor's hand on their way to teach a course. All in all, I love having the space to hold basically anything I need (short of a large laptop), and this bag is great... ...»
(Awesome Bag for Men --- August 30, 2012 --- By Samuel E. Trusty)
I am in love with this gorgeous brown leather bag. It is very much well constructed with lots of room for stuff. The quality of the leather is awesome with the smell of leather. The lining is fair for the quality leather. I like how it looks manly and heavy duty. I thought about buying other bags... This was the best choice. I plan to buy other bags from vagabond. TOTALLY satisfied. .. ...»

(Vagabond Traveler 15" leather briefcase --- June 17, 2012 --- By momof2)
I don't usually leave reviews but felt that the item was of such a nice quality that I had to. I purchased this as a gift for the hubby and for the price I was really surprised with the quality. Firstly, it arrived on time and nicely packaged. The hardware on the bag is of a good quality and made to take a heavy load. The leather is a bit stiff but should soften with age nicely. A leather tag is included so you could experiment with oils/waxes if you wanted to. The color is a nice rich brown. What I really like about this bag is that there is no horrible lining covered in logos and it is a simple but classic design.
This is truly a nice bag for the everyday commute and thus far I have received no complaints from the recipient. It looks like its built to last a lifetime and who knows, it may be inherited by my son! .. ...»
