Great bag!

My husband wanted a laptop bag that wasn’t overly large that he wouldn’t be worried about dirtying. But most of all he wanted something MADE in the USA. Challenge accepted. I found this and he wasn’t sure it would be big enough, but he really liked the look and the shape. I bought the premium and the leather is really handsome. I also added the state patch and a leather monogram.

He’s been using it two months and loves it. He packs so much stuff in there- 13” MacBook Pro, iPad, books, phone, umbrella, 32oz Nalgene, coffee thermos, eye glass case, files, etc. He’s a professor at a very large university so he has to walk a big distance across campus each day with all that. I was worried it was too heavy but he said that the strap and the crossbody distributes the weight well. I am hoping he will take less, but nature abhors a vacuum! Great bag!

Love this bag!

It's exactly what I was hoping for, and I know it'll be as tough and durable as the field satchel I've owned and used for over ten years.

The strap is nice and wide, the internal dividers are useful, and it looks nice. Fits my MacBook Air (13") well and plenty of room for accessories. The internal padding makes the bag fairly stiff, which I like.

To my mind, the only downside is that it's so durable I won't be have reason to buy another Frost River shoulder bag any time soon. ;-)
