Sometimes a beautiful distressed leather and fantastic structural design is not enough – you need space, and lots of it. This messenger bag has all three qualities made of the signature distressed leather from Campomaggi and following the simple lines in the messenger bag design, it was easy to add inches to the right and left, up and down to create a super sized messenger bag.

Brief description: Flap closure with 3 position click lock, internal pocket size width 28cm height 25cm, 2 pen holders, removable strap, top handle drop 4 cm, divider pocket lined in leather and cotton and it includes a signature protective dust bag
Pro’s: Interior pocket with security zip for carrying a laptop, iPad or Netbook. The adjustable and removable shoulder strap for alternate carrying options. External lock on front flap.
Con’s: Though it is unisex, this bag tends to lend itself to a more masculine look. One must take into consideration that the interior measurements are not standardized. Some people have noted that fist few times they have used the bag the color may rub off to lighter colored clothing – however this stops after the bag has been exposed to the elements a couple of times.
What I liked best about the bag: It’s large and made of a sturdy leather. I liked the detachable shoulder strap for alternative carrying option (top handle or carrying strap), this make sthe bag versatile and convenient to carry light or heavy objects. Though in today’s world nothing is truly safe from prying hands – it was nice to have a security lock on the exterior.
What I liked least about the bag: Tough, because I must say I really like this bag. If anything it is the strong scent that the Campmaggi bags have at the beginning – it quickly wears off, however it can be quite overpowering at the very beginning.
