Hi guys,

I am going to be going to college soon and am looking for an all-in one bag (Briefcase, weekender, etc). I found Colsen Keane Custom Leather Goods, and really like what they are doing with their No. 4311 large satchels. Tempted to buy, but wanted to consult the SF group first. Are there bags worth the $900 they are charging (Quality and craftsmanship).

This is the one I am looking at getting:







Thanks

No where near worth it man.

I'd check out saddleback leather. (http://www.saddlebackleather.com/)

They have the aesthetic you are looking for with better quality, design, and price.

If you are interested in a leather backpack from Saddleback Leather Co., let me know. I have one I'm thinking about selling.

I have always liked the design and construction of CK bags. They are regularly offered at 15-25% off as well so I don't have any objection to the pricing (and the pricing is in fact comparable to other makers -- including Saddleback Leather Co.)

Apart from wanting to sell his own backpack to the OP I don't know why @Magic1 objected on the grounds he listed.

Saddleback also has a completely different aesthetic than CK with much more complicated designs and more (unnecessary IMO) ornamentation
