This was £200 in Bill Amberg (down from £600

Padded neoprene in the bottom for a laptop.
Bicester also had a nice Tanner Kroll one but it was £300, and the black one had a tab that had fallen off, they said they'd do 10% off but what is the point of paying £270 for a bag that looks damaged when you could get a perfect one for an extra £30?

Pretty sure my backpacking days are behind me, but means more money for long weekends so tempted by this:

or this:

Similar price with that code that's going around.

Yeah I remember the S2A love. I think Snaye's got it and at least one other. Just thought the other was a bit more interesting for the price.

Yeah the OL one is nice, but I just think the S2A is a more versatile, better looking bag. Will go with more stuff, and I think the fact it's less "interesting" works for it, as part of the beauty of it is how simple and clean it is. How much is it with the discount code?

I think snaye has the weekend bag? I've got the duffle and would recommend it…the OL one is a bit big for my liking.

Vazza is correct I have the weekend bag. I preferred it to the Usine as I liked the shape more, its a bit rounder and deeper rather than longer and thin. Its personal preference on which shape you like. I love my weekend bag and would highly recommend it leather is butter soft and the linings are always nice too. Im sure Vazza and I think rural has the usine also would also recommend the usine highly too so just a matter of personal choice. Both really good bags.

Had been tempted by that OL bag until seeing it on TresBien - the clasps look a bit cheap, and not sure on the finish either. The Surface to Air weekend bag looks really nice, and I like the look of these too

Yep i have the Usine, liked the look of the weekend bag aswel, but needed more of a duffle . Was pleasantly surprised how good the leather was, and they have a really nice lining in them too.

After a nice leather messenger bag for my laptop if anyones seen one.
laptops 15 inch wide.

Got in mind a brown leather and fancy a buckle to lock the flap down to be safe.
