What a beautifully crafted messenger bag. I am so glad I got this one for teh quick sprints around town.
Love the all-leather design, solid construction and this will last for generations.
I just wish the leather strap was removable,

Early days but very pleased so far...

Great quality, well designed and highly practical. Comfortably houses my MacBook and 12.9" iPad in well protected built-in sections with plenty of space for my collection of cables, etc.

Not had chance to give it a decent few trips post pandemic yet but am confident it will be up to the job.

Delivery was very speedy - albeit rather expensive to order from the UK - you guys need a distributor over here !

Love my Executive Leather Messenger bag

I am very happy with my purchase! The Executive Leather Messenger bag was expensive, and paying Canadian duties and taxes added to the overall price (obviously not the fault of SFbags), but it was well worth the cost.

I’ve wanted this bag for sometime, and now that I have it I have no regrets with my purchase. I’m a lawyer and always have my laptop and iPad Pro on the go with me. This bag fits in perfectly with my busy life.

The quality and craftsmanship of the bag is top-notch, and I’m a huge fan of the gold interior and soft lining.

I highly recommend this bag to whomever is in the market for a top-quality messenger bag that will last for years.

CARING FOR YOUR LEATHER BAG

We usually recommend not doing anything to the full-grain leather of your bag, letting it develop it's own beautiful patina over time. However, you may want to freshen it up a bit with a leather conditioner. The leather may darken a bit, so test the reaction first on a spot that's not highly visible, like the bottom of the bag. For the distressed leather that we use, you can also spread the oils around and smooth them out a bit with heat from a hair dryer.
