Fossil is one of my favorite leather product brands. Their quality is always excellent with modern, yet on-trend designs. I have owned several different Fossil leather products over the years, and they have all exceeded my expectations with regards to durability. The Fossil Men’s Estate Saffiano Leather East-West Messenger Bag doesn’t disappoint.
For more, check out my full in-depth review of the Fossill Saffiano Messenger Bag.
Fossil’s Saffiano Leather Messenger Bag is exactly what is expected from a messenger bag. Nothing elaborate, but looks and feels great. As far as design, it has the standard messenger bag features. For example, a top flap to cover or access the bag’s compartments. The flap closes with 2 push-button straps with decorative buckles.
There is a leather handle on the back for easy carrying or you can use the adjustable body-strap. As far as organizational it’s well-equipped with 9 different sized and styled pockets. Inside there is 1 zip pocket and 4 slip pockets. The exterior has 3 slip pockets and 1 card slot. The largest exterior pocket, which is on the front under the top flap could fit a small tablet, your phone, and so forth.
The inside compartments can hold quite a bit. Now you won’t get a large laptop, but 13″ laptops will slide in nicely. In fact, you should have no problem fitting a 13″ laptop, tablet, notepads, and couple of books. Although I haven’t personally done so, one online customer says that he is able to put his 15″ Macbook Pro in the messenger bag, so it’s possible other 15″ laptops could fit.
I feel that if you are going to buy leather, then you want leather that looks and feels great. After all, you will have it for years or even decades! For those who would use it everyday for work, or are looking to buy a gift, then it is a great investment.
