This man’s vintage leather commuter bag is versatile and handsome. The vertical bag is constructed of an excellent quality smooth leather in a tawny color. The versatile design includes elements common to a satchel, a commuter bag, and a laptop bag with similarities to a messenger bag but with zippers instead of buckles.
The bag’s design focuses on organization, and there are a total of eight separate compartments and pockets. The main compartment measures 10 by 12 inches and is 3 ½ inches deep, large enough to hold a laptop or reams of paperwork. A second smaller compartment has a large interior zippered pocket and a smaller pocket with a Velcro closure as well as four slip pockets handy for carrying cards. This compartment measures 8 ½ by 10 inches and is 1 ¾ inches deep with a little extra room available because of the way it is constructed. There is a zippered pocket located between the two major compartments and two pockets with Velcro closures are stitched to the front. A large slip pocket with a Velcro closure is on the back of the bag.
The top of the bag has a handle making it useful as a satchel. The strap is adjustable, so it can be used as a shoulder bag or a crossbody bag. It strap has a slip buckle allowing it to be adjusted, and it can extend to a maximum length of 50 inches. A hard frame inside the walls of the main compartment help the bag keep its vertical shape. A label inside the main compartment says, “Natural Leather, Made in Columbia, SA.” The leather has a bit of a weathered look and there is a bit of light scuffing and a bit of rubbing on the corners. There is also a bit of fraying along one section of lining, but it is double stitched and seems secure. The bag is in otherwise excellent vintage condition, clean with tight stitching and no stains, rips, holes, or scents. This commuter satchel is utilitarian, versatile, and handsome!
