I’ve found the ultimate leather laptop bag!  I love this thing!

Why It’s Cool:

It’s so awesome… just look at this thing!

It’s also quite functional:

  • Big enough for my 17″ Macbook Pro laptop and an iPad
  • Room for my plugs, papers, and all sorts of other stuff (it’s a standard-sized laptop bag)
  • 3 zipper areas including a big one on the back
  • Both Adam Lambert and I agree that it has the right amount of leather
  • A big pocket up front for more cables, sunglasses, or a small gun
  • A laptop separation-area inside
  • A second side-pocket for a cell phone or smallish fine-ladies’ gun
  • Giant magnetic buckles on the front that keep everything snug
  • Comfy, adjustable leather strap

Things You May Not Like

  • It only has 3 zipper sections.  So if you are one of those people that puts a ton of stuff into your laptop bag, it may not be fore you.
  • Even though I am a photographer, I don’t use this to carry serious camera stuff. But I do carry around little pro-sumer cameras that are convenient
  • It’s expensive.  But, you know… imagine you are a woman that has fallen in love with a pair of boots or something… and all reason flies right out the window.

One thing this image doesn't portray is how soft this thing is. It is like a soft cuddly cow crawled up and died on your lap.

There are nice details and patterns inside and outside of the folds

This pouch on the outside is too small for most of my guns, but it does fit a ziplock full of pork and beans for those lonely nights on the range.

This side pocket is pretty handy too for your mobile phone or 18th-century Western iPod

Soft pockets inside to hold some of your junk... but not so many pockets so you can't remember where you put that damned thing you are looking for

The bag is big enough for me to fit my 17" Macbook Pro. It's not big enough to also hold my camera equipment, but... that's not what I use it for

  • it looks really classy; i imagine D’Artagnan would use something like that or anyway it fits perfect for my image of XVII-th century France 🙂
    i didn’t know you carry a gun with you … but with all that expensive gear it is justified, but what do you do when you travel abroad ?

    I like the bag too. I even want it for myself. But after checking the link out, i realized its not within my price range.. then i saw your phone. Desire right? i have the exact same one. Where did you get the phone skin hahah

    I have a canon 5d mark II, and I looking into buying a lens simlar to the 14-24 lens you use on your Nikon for your landscape shots. Canon has a 16-35 lens, is that the compareable lens to the 14-24. What you would use for landscape shots if you were working with a canon?

  • hehe thanks all…

    Alex – no I don’t really carry a gun…

    Dex – I think I got that skin at gelaskins!

    Anish – try checking out the new Tokina that is in that range – it is getting great reviews!

  • Nice. Not sure if I see it as Three Musketeers, or more likely Indiana Jones. But very sweet! Zippered pockets for laptop AND bullwhip (to keep them separate, of course!) and even room for a small bag for sand in case you need to grab an idol or something.

    I dunno… looks kind of like a man-purse. Like the guy on the Geico commercial with the “European Hand-bag”.

    Looks great and I wanted one until you said that it has “giant MAGNETIC buckles”… Can’t magnets mess with your hard drive?

    Do you know of a website that has photos of places which you plan to travel too? I am heading over to switzerland and was wondering where the hot places are to shoot.

    Thanks agian.

    I love the look of that bag. I am not sure if I can give up my backpack but I like the messenger bag style.

  • I don’t know Switzerland that well – just Zurich and Lugano – both of those are great

  • Matt

    LOL…I wouldnt be caught dead with that ugly bag, unless my wife gave it to me for x-mas.

  • Kathy

    Lucerne Switzerland, Interlaken and the mountains in the area

  • Great post.

    Another sort of branded handbags for guys will be the tri-fold wallet. Once-again, one has the capacity to decide the character with this wallet by its brand. It is a wallet that is generally an extension of the above budget that is mentioned and has three chambers as a whole. One is able to shop more products within this kind of wallet as it has three regions.
