This bag is stylish, sturdy, and well-made. It looks like a cool vintage purse but holds everything I need for a work trip - plenty of room for laptop, iPad, files, small water bottle, snack, and all the usual purse essentials. Given the reasonable price, I was unsure if the leather would be of good quality, but I was pleasantly surprised! This definitely exceeded my expectations: the leather is nice and seems like it will wear well over time. The interior lining is also sturdy (and a nice warm brown color, unlike the black linings of most bags that make it hard to find your keys or whatever in the very bottom); the strap to hold the laptop in place is heavy duty like a seatbelt; the zippers and buckles are not only stylish but also seem like they will hold up to lots of use.
The only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars is that the laptop pocket isn't as padded as I would want. There's a padded divider on one side, but no padding on the other or on the bottom. I am pretty careful with my stuff, and I'm willing to add some extra cushioning of my own, but given that laptops are getting increasingly thinner and lighter, I feel like a bit of extra padding wouldn't go amiss.
However, this is a gorgeous bag and since I was shopping for a dressy/professional bag rather than a bag that can hold up to the stresses of my regular daily commute, this is ideal. If you're looking for a beautiful bag that will hold all of your necessities, look no further!
