I agree- I bought 2 of these on final sale on Gilt thinking I would like them because of the quality leather and brass look. They are well made, but they are too small- almost purse-like dimensions. For me to be comfortable, they need to be longer and be able to hold a laptop. I got the messenger bags (not day bags) in navy and charcoal. They would fit a netbook, but not as useful as a carryall/daybag.
A bit too small for me. I'm thinking of selling them to my female friends who liked them (kind of a first clue that it's not masculine enough, at least for my tastes).

Or should I try and avoid messenger bags entirely?
