    Pad & Quill today introduced its latest product, the Attaché Leather Messenger Bag, which is designed as an upgrade to its popular standard messenger bag.

    Like all Pad & Quill products, the new Messenger Bag is made from high-quality full-grain bridle leather by hand and outfitted with nickel and copper hardware.

    It features a padded laptop pocket that can accommodate a laptop up to 15 inches, like Apple's 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro models, and it includes a padded, secure pocket designed for the new 10.5-inch iPad Pro. The pocket will accommodate 9.7-inch and smaller iPads as well, but not the 12.9-inch model.

    Expandable pleated front pockets on the bag offer space for an iPhone, cables, and other accessories, and at the back, there's a quick access newspaper pocket.

    Inside, the entire bag is lined with a soft suede, and it's built with UV-resistant Marine-grade stitching for durability. A zipper pocket holds valuables, and two additional bucket pockets inside the bag hold other essentials. There's a main pouch for books and other accessories, and a set of pen holders.

    The bag measures in at 14 inches wide by 12.5 inches high, and it's 5 inches deep with a weight of five pounds. It comes in several colors, including whiskey, chestnut, and chocolate. All Pad & Quill bags feature a 25-year leather warranty.

    Pad & Quill's new Attaché Leather Messenger Bag is available for pre-order from the Pad & Quill website for $495. Orders will ship out in mid-September.

    Hand made genuine high quality leather made in America? I’d like to see those bags if you don’t mind.

    I bought a leather satchel from a a designer in London for under £100. I would take it any day over something like this.

    Thanks MR, now that I know this bag exists, I feel less empty deep inside, and a feeling of hope is pervading the universe.

    I like it. Plus a 25 year warranty is a win.

    It's a beautiful bag. Out of my price range for a bag but probably worth saving for. Some of these bags are so well made they last decades.

    MR - is this an advertisement? If so you should mark it as such...

    I like their iPad Pro cases, but for a bag, there are many many other options. Check out Etsy to support your local.

    Cheap use of the disclaimer to place an advertisement in the blog. Then again, we've seen this before.

    Well done!

    Keep whining about free stuff. It’s quite becoming.

    I would like to know how that SLR camera fits in the bag without removing the lens.

    Nice. In other Apple related news, Burge King just announced the tripple whopper.

    Looks nice but never been a fan of the big flap to close the thing. I'll pass.

    You got ripped.

    You do get what you pay or up to a point. The leather may be very nice, and the stitching could be decent quality. I'd reserve judgement until you see one in person.

    Ah. So you mean that we should suck it up and be happy with whatever MR posts since we don't directly pay for it. Thanks for clearing that up. You go, MR! Blend those ads with actual reporting. Toss those historically tight journalistic standards. You're free, so who am I to take issue? I feel so much better now. And thanks for the semantics lesson as well. Most appreciated.

    Back on Earth, lots of us have taken issue with including essentially product promotions masquerading as "front page" reporting. I have no problem getting a heads up that there's a new bag in town. But when it starts gushing about "high-quality full-grain bridle leather" it raises as much suspicion as Clover's TextBlade write up, as well it should. You've been around long enough to know that.

    ...but it wasn't on the front page....

    However, I don't disagree with your statements as a whole; it's just that my knee-jerk reaction to such complaining and apparent entitlement is defensive. I have no skin in the game.

    Regardless, this is a "site and forum feedback" discussion and we've gone off-topic.

    All the best.
