    Comments about Hudson Laptop Briefcase 2014:

    I've been in the market for a messenger bag for a while; I've been using my Northface backpack for everything for the past 6 years and I thought it was time to get something less for college and more for business/grownup look. This Hudson bag was definitely a good answer for me. The structure of the bag was exactly what I was looking for: slim, simple, and sturdy. The leather straps and handles are definitely a huge plus for that classy look.

    My bag currently isn't holding a lot currently (just my 13inch laptop and some random things) but is able to handle a lot more if I wanted to.

        The only thing I'd change is adding one more zipper pocket somewhere for organization.

        Comments about Hudson Laptop Briefcase 2014:

        Other reviews mentioned craftsmanship not being what they expected, but it seems well put together to me. I've only just used this for a week long trip tot he east coast, but all of the function is there. the leather is soft and seems sturdy (maybe you wouldn't want to load this bag to the brim with heavier items?). The carry on strap is key for putting the bag on a luggage handle and not having to carry it through the airport (A+). The laptop pocket is strange to me (my 15.6" dell doesn't fit inside) but I just got a laptop sleeve to protect it in inside the secondary compartment, though I wish the whole rear compartment was padded for extra safety. It works like a charm through security, zip and lay flat, zip back up and walk away.

        There were also reviews on the interior pockets in the main compartment. I would agree that they are not ideal, but they work for pens and smaller items just fine. I also haven't used the exterior pocket, namely because of reviews saying it comes unbuttoned when full. I would imagine if i loaded the bag to the max and was stuffing things into the exterior pocket that might happen. I am traveling light and don't expect to do anything else, so the pocket and snaps see sturdy and sufficient.

        Finally, the off-center strap that was commented on is a little odd at first, but the bag sits better when over the shoulder. I have other bags with centered straps and the D ring always seems to turn and tug in odd and sometimes destructive ways. Another "issue" I would not worry about.

        Over all, the style of the bag is 100% what I wanted, and the few cons that could be improved upon aren't big enough issues for me to really advise against anyone else purchasing it.

              Great looking bag but the shipping was incredibly slow. Took over 2 weeks to come, which was much longer than expected.

                Very nicely appointed bag. Great color and style. Interior material is very soft to the touch. Lighter color interior makes finding items easy. Fits my bulky laptop, power cord, journal, file, pens, etc. and somehow the bag doesn't look bulky when loaded. Zippers are very robust and work great. Bag looks good on my frame as well at 6'1'' tall.
