So it arrived. I had to get over the trauma of spending the $. I dont often spend much money on myself. I may spend it on other things but rarely on myself. It takes a lot to justify things to myself in my mind. Even with my wife encouraging me to spend the $ I have a hard time doing it.
I just simply hate spending any money.
Ok, so the trauma is gone and now I have it. "It" being the Saddleback Leather Carbon Breifcase. Carbon is the color not the material.
My first thoughts? THIS THING IS SUBSTANTIAL. (ya.. those are words my mind uses..) My second thoughts? If I had to travel the world and risk my life this is the bag thats coming with me. No doubt. Its that impressive in person. The pictures do not do this thing justice. I feel they may keep their pictures somewhat subdued to keep from scaring away any potential new owners of these bags.
I will be taking some pics of it soon and of course updating this article with them.
I am glad I bought the size I did. I have a Dell Precision laptop in the 15.4" screen size. The Medium bag would not of held this. I opted for the large and I understand the leather is still needing to break in but as it is, its very snug.. As it breaks it I expect it to slide in easier but I dont forsee it ever just falling in. I doubt it could hold a 17" unit in there at all.
More to come as I play with it.
UPDATE - 2/9/11
WOW! Its been a long time! Here is the bag over 1 year later and I still carry it daily! Love this bag! :
