Upon getting home, the laptop fit, but not comfortably, and there was no room for anything else. The bag was never used, only taken out of the box to try it out. When I went back in early February to return the bag, the store owner refused to accept a return (with my receipt), saying the bag had been used. The tags were still on the bag and it had never been taken out of the house, just sitting in the box in my car until I was able to return it. He claims there was wear on the leather, and made no effort to listen to me or offer any alternatives. He just threw it back at me and said he wouldn't take it. I'm now stuck with a $300 bag that I can't use.
Moral of the story: If you choose to buy here, inspect the bag thoroughly before purchasing (I suspect the "damage" must have been on the leather before I bought it) and don't purchase the bag unless you are 100% confident you will keep it. I will never be going back.
