Overview

For the workweek or weekend getaway, this versatile version of the classic carry all is actually three bags in one. Thanks to its system of three removable shoulder straps it easily converts from a backpack to a messenger bag or briefcase. To that versatile design we use a buttery soft, drum tumbled Texas steer hide leather to add beauty to function.

Reviews
Tech Backpack is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from All around quality The leather is top quality and beautifully treated. The design is compact and very practical. The 3 alternative carry straps are very functional. I found it very easy to adapt to after using my last bag for 10 years. The straps are very well padded and have a wide range of flexibility. The quality is easily recognizable by others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the bag despite backpack straps I am a big AE fan; quality, value (particularly when on sale), and customer service. And this bag is consistent with my other AE products. I LOVE this bag. Have to echo other positive comments re look, leather, quality, useful storage, and functionality. I am a fan, despite the silly shoulder straps. I have used it as the replacement for my everyday briefcase...and most days, it is plenty large to carry my laptop and work files. And as I am a "fifty something" boss in a business dominated by "thirty to forty somethings," I think it freshens my look to carry a leather backpack. Have to agree with other commenters re the backpack strap padding is in the wrong place, and also that the brass buckles dig into your sides if wearing as a backpack. I am a fit 6'0" 185 lbs, so the issue is not my padding! I have no comment on the shoulder strap as I never use it; not my look. My hope is AE offers other bags in the dark chili in matching leather; I could use a matching larger bag for carrying larger files or binders, or a duffel to use as a weekend overnighter. And I am old enough to afford it. Please add more in this color.

Does the bottom of the area where the pack straps store unzip so that it can be slid over a rollerboard style suitcase handle?

Asked by: Anonymous
No. However, if you crossed one or both of the shoulder straps you could slide the handle between the straps and bag for similar effect.

Backpack straps

can back pack straps be removed and only the messenger strap be left

The back straps are fixed to the back pocket, and they can be tucked into the pocket so you can attach the included cross-body strap to the brass D-rings on the top or bottom of the bag. Please feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

Are the backpack straps attached to the inside of the back zipper?

Hello, In looking at the pictures of this backpack, I cannot tell for sure where the backpack straps attach. I see two brass rings located at the top of the bag, but I also see the backpack straps tucked into the back zipper pocket. Are the straps attached inside the pocket? Thanks for your help.

Also a cross body ?

Hi I am interested in this bag, it looks like it converts from backpack to a messenger or cross body bag. Could you confirm that it converts from backpack to messenger? Does the backpack straps become a shoulder strap? Also can it attach to a carry on suitcase ? Thks
Asked by: Anonymous
There is a separate shoulder strap that can attach to the top of the bag like a messenger and it is removable. Shoulder straps can be tucked into a zippered pocket but they are stitched into the bag. There is not a built in 'mechanism' on the back of the bag to attach it to a suitcase handle. However, if you cross connect one or both of the shoulder straps you could have the same effect.

What is the real size of this bag ?

The website says 15 x 15.5 inches, but it doesn't look squarrish at all, more like a rectangle with a height at least 1/3 more than its width ... or so it appears on the photos. Do you confirm the 15 x 15.5 ? Additionally, can I buy this bag in France ? Any delivery costs ? return policy ? Thanks for your answers

Will a standard 15" laptop fit in this bag?

Asked by: Anonymous
Yes, you should be fine. I was *barely* able to fit my 2011 Macbook Pro 15" and the bag is still able to zipper close. This is a model with an optical drive so it's thicker than today's laptops. If you have a recent model laptop, you will probably have slightly more clearance.
