Canvas & Leather Messenger Bag
Great quality, great look
I bought this as a xmas gifrt for my husband for work. He travels a lot so he needed something he could use for day to day office as well as traveling. This bag is perfect. It looks very stylish - the canvas bag with the leather top is top quality and makes it stand out. It also has many pockets and a lot of space so is very functional. He is very happy with it and I highly recommend it.

Great messenger travel bag (after latch revision).
I purchased this bag mainly for plane trips (vacation and otherwise). First let me point out that Tommy Bahama very wisely nixed the buttons on the leather flap in favor of thumbnail latches. This provides for a much more secure closure. All other aspects of the bag remained the same. This is a high quality "messenger" bag. The outer appearance is rugged, yet sophisticated. The inner lining has a handsome island print that clearly reminds you this is a Tommy product. There are four inner pockets of varying sizes (one that closes with a zipper). It comfortably fits my 15" mac, my WSJ, and a variation of other small items (including audio needs) with ease. When on a plane, I stand it up and it conveniently fits under the seat in front of me thus allowing for foot/leg room. If I had to nit-pick, I wish they would have included a slot in the back of the bag so that I could attach it to my larger luggage handle while cruising through the airport. Outside of that, this is a great addition to my traveling luggage. Tommy has once again matched style with function.

I've carried this bag for 90 days now and it wears great, shows great, fits everything that I need in the plethora of pockets and the leather smells awesome too.

Pockets for everything, even a laptop fits in it!
I purchased this as a gift, not sure the recipient would want or need it, I just thought it was a great bag! Well, I hit a home run with this one! He emptied his old bag out immediately and loaded this one up! Loved it! Thanks Tommy Bahama for making me look like the perfect Santa!!

Nice bag-ineffective snap system for closing
I bought this for business trips but it became clear quickly that it would not be ideal as the snaps on the cover are the only mechanism to keep the cover closed and they are ineffective. Very nice bag but really needs an alternate snap or buckle to secure cover. Spacious enough for laptop and/or IPAD and comfortable to carry.

This product is a big disappointment
Love TB products and are my first choice BUT the bag does not please. Main reason is the poor clasp which always opensKen . I imagine the magnets are too small for the large flap.

The product is aesthetically pleasing to the eye.
I am in agreement with others who have been disappointed with the inadequacy of the magnet fasteners of the main flap. If anything asymetrical or having any girth is placed in the pouches underneath, it makes finding the magnets and fasteneing them difficult to impossible. The surface must be almost flat for the magnet system to remain strong enough to keep the flap securely closed. I think that Tommy Bahama should come up with some kind of a retrofit system that can be easily istalled by either a seamstress or shoemaker. Otherwise I will be forced to come up with a solution myself, which for $250.00 should not be the case.

The product is not a good as it appears in the catalog.
The product features were not as I thought after I order it. The feature such the leather did not feel as nice it looked in the catalog and pockets aren't deep as it looks. I wanted to use it as a brief case for daily use but once I got it with feel and look I don't believe it will would work in that capacity.
