        Comments about Duluth Trading Fire Hose and Leather Messenger Bag:

        I read reviews that complained about the handle not being centered, it isn't supposed to be centered. This is a messenger bag, it hangs like a saddle bag. The zippers and seams are tough and durable. I would recommend this to a complete stranger. Buy this bag.

        Comments about Duluth Trading Fire Hose and Leather Messenger Bag:

        This is an awesome bag that I can already tell will probably be my last messenger bag! My only complaint is that the shoulder straps are short. I carry my satchels low, and I'm tall, so I need a longer strap, and the straps are not changeable.

        Heads up that the laptop sleeve will fit a 13 inch macbook, but would not fit a 15 inch macbook or pc laptop. But the main compartment has room to fit a laptop of that size.

              Bought of this for my son for school. He is rough on his book bags.
              He is happy with the style and the amount of things it is able to hold. At this point it has only been in use for a month, hope that it will last a couple of years.

              Comments about Duluth Trading Fire Hose and Leather Messenger Bag:

              I love this bag; it is jam-packed with features including easy-grab pockets and key-chain!

              The only down side that I've seen so far is that the straps are not as long as I would prefer. I'm 6' 6" and I prefer to wear my satchel bags lower, but these straps still fit me with the bag coming down comfortably at my side. So it will work!

              The flap cover does not extend all the way to the ends, which is nice for easy access inside your bag, but less secure for traveling abroad and getting caught out in the rain. The gap, however, is not bad enough that I think it will cause any problems at all.

              I can already tell the construction is solid, durable, and innovative, so I'm looking to forward to having this long-lasting bag!

              A Good Bag for Small Loads

              By Art W

              from Oriental, Sailing Capital of NC

              Verified Buyer

              Pros

              • Good For Smaller Loads
              • very attractive

              Cons

              • Handle Is Not Centered

              Best Uses

                Comments about Duluth Trading Fire Hose and Leather Messenger Bag:

                I purchased this bag based on many positive comments about using it as a laptop bag. I found that it works well as a shoulder bag, but when you carry a full load with a laptop and a book (admittedly items that are becoming scarcer) the offset handle makes carrying the bag awkward. After consulting with Customer Service, I determined that they offer a different bad that will meet my needs. This one goes back and I will be purchasing a new Bootstrapper Briefcase from Duluth Trading.

                Somewhat disappointing

                By Steve

                from Kalamazoo, MI

                Pros

                • Attractive
                • Lots of pockets

                Cons

                • Lacks rigidity
                • Overpriced
                • several design flaws
                • Very floppy

                Best Uses

                • Carrying Gear To Work

                Comments about Duluth Trading Fire Hose and Leather Messenger Bag:

                I got this as a gift after requesting it to replace my old messenger bag. I knew it was not very rigid having read other reviews, and that certainly is the case, it is far less rigid than the photos make it appear. In no way does this stand up like the photos show. I will look for some kind of light stiffening material to make this less floppy and sloppy. Also, the handle is badly placed, it should be an inch or so more to the front. Third, there is no zipper to close the inner compartment and protect it from rain as my old bag has. Fourth, the front flap should be an inch or so wider on each side to cover the inner compartment adequately. It is attractive and all the various pockets are very nice, but its functionality and usefulness is diminished by the design flaws listed above. I hope DTC will redesign this soon.

                  I use this bag to carry photographic equipment and related supplies on short to medium hikes. On longer excursions it used to organize my field office. I love it!
