The Men's Messenger Bag is great. Everything I expected and more. Well crafted. Would definitely buy again.
Once in a great while, something turns out to be so much more spectacular than you’d hoped! I compared many, many bags on the internet…in every price range…hoping I could find something I could afford as a gift for my amazing daughter [recently graduated Uni and headed into her first job] Well, Vida Vida appeared just so…..do-able and reasonable! I'm somewhat past the techy age, so the world of internet shopping can be quite daunting. Choosing the bag was really tough, but everything else was so easy!! It took only ten days from the order day to the delivery day…UK to Canada. [sheesh…we often can’t get a letter from one end of town to the other in 10 days!] And you know how so often there’s ‘we don’t do this’, or ‘can’t do that’ that shows up after you've struggled through the entire, often ridiculous order process? Right? Not here!! Not once!!
The bag itself is an absolute delight! The leather seems thick enough to be sturdy without being clunky and heavy. The stitching is precise and the color is rich and warm. It looks very much like the picture, which is to say, it is just beautiful. And lovely to touch! I ordered the 15” and her laptop fits very snugly. Also, yes, there is, at the moment, an unusual ‘odour’…but I think I recognize it as something quite similar to “Neatsfoot Oil’…a protective product we have used on our saddles and riding boots for many decades. The smell will go away shortly.
Plus, even the soft cloth cover the bag arrived in is classy and cool!
I am so excited to give this to my daughter!!
Now then, add to all of this the wonderful nature of the owners…people who are providing a great product, with great service to ordinary people, then going one step further by sharing with children facing some unimaginable struggles.
So, would I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this company and their products?
Yes, as a matter of fact, I would. Thank you so much!!
[please forgive my lengthy natter ]
Absolutely thrilled with both of my products. Excellent and beautiful quality. Made to perfection. I can't stop looking at them!
This was a present for my son ,he was delighted with it and especially as it had been personalised ,would definitely buy from this seller again many thanks.
Very satisfied with this product and delighted with the quality considering the very reasonable cost. Ideal for traveling.
Men's Midi Long Leather Satchel with Front Pocket
Men's Leather Messenger Bag
I bought the brown wash bag for my partner's 30th birthday and was a bit nervous if it was a weird gift to give or not. Rest assured he was delighted with it and it is a really high quality product and comes with care instructions. it's quite big but would thoroughly recommend.
Leather Messenger Bag
Was sceptical that this would not be as good as the reviews said - I bought this for my daughter for her 21st birthday present and can't wait to give it to her. The leather quality is excellent and the overall product is brilliant - Well done on such a reasonably priced bag for such good quality.
Great looking bag - very happy with the purchase. Good quality, nice style and good value. Time and use will test the durability.
This bag was awesome when I pulled it out of the shipping bag; great looking and the smell was wonderful. However, it was smaller than what I expected, but the company has readily agreed to exchange for a larger bag. I can not wait to get my replacement.
Love it! Slender, elegant, minimal, soft and affordable.
A well made, quality product that looks, feels and is far better than the reasonable price tag might have you expect. Fits a laptop well without any unecessary or unsightly bulk or bulge. It is a classic look and yet feels modern and well made. Overall very impressed.
My only observation is that the shoulder strap is riveted on so cannot be removed. Small point only on an otherwise great bag!!!!
Ah recently bought this satchel fur ma wee wifey, sae she cun keep her tablet, amongst ither hings, in it when travellin' an' just fur a'day use. It's perfect fur use oan planes, trains & automobiles an' leauks just the dab tae!
Th' leather is guid an' aw fixin's are sturdy, th' inscriptions are done weel an' thur's surprisingly loads o' room in a satchel o' its size! Th' satchel itsel came wrapped in a custom Vida Vida cloth bag, which wis braw an' ideal fur puttin' her tablet in as anither way tae protect whilst inside th' satchel.
It came remarkably quickly an' ma wife wis o'er th' moon wi' it!
Thenk ye V.V.! - guid wurk fowks!
Very beautiful and (got the black one), it wasn't very big but should be ok for a guy. Inside was also top quality
really pleased with my new special laptop bag, as a female airline pilot I needed something to carry all my 'stuff' for work, but wanted something a bit different to the great big flight bags many of my colleagues cart around. This is old school and cute, I love it. I've managed to fill every pocket and it copes magnificently. Would highly recommend to all.
Love the ethos and style. This small satchel is perfect size for casual wear. Looks good on all occasions. Fits all you need including a bottle of water. I regularly get compliments on the 'vintage' look and feel.
Thanks Vida Vida,
I originally ordered the grande bag, which turned out to be a little large. An exchange was arranged and the difference in price was refunded promptly with no fuss.
The bag itself is great quality and I would recomend Vida Vida to all my friends and family.
Prompt delivery, nice quality leather, well put together. Looks good.
Vintage Leather Saddle Bag - Large
As a primary teacher I have usernames various bags over the years to cart around my laptop and paperwork. Finally I treated myself to this beautiful satchel-the reviews are great and having researched for a while I made the decision to go for it. I am so pleased to have found the perfect bag. It arrived and smells beautiful-everyone is very jealous at school. You can tell it's good quality and strong. It holds more than I thought it would. Can't wait to enjoy it for all my future years teaching.
I bought the leather laptop bag with handle and opted for the blank initial embossment. The bag is made of superb leather and is great value compared to other online and high street leather bag outlets. Would definitely recommend.
The bag I received is wonderful and well made, I would buy from VidaVida again. I get compliments all the time.
Bought this as a gift for a male family member who had seen one owned by another family member.
It is well made and looks good.
The recipient is very pleased with it and has now requested a larger size too!
I love my bag, it arrived quickly, it is beautifully designed and is just gorgeous. :)
I bought my fiance a lovely brown leather wash bag which I had embossed with his initials as a birthday present. It came in a really nice bag and looks really expensive. Fair to say he was very pleased with his gift!
I ordered Leather laptop bag. It was better than i had waited. Nice work. I am satisfied
What a fabulous find . All comment on the quality and quirkiness of it .
Exellent mens midi long leather satchel very happy with the quality of this bag good price and quality.
Love it! Fit the description perfectly. Smells nice and great quality leather
I bought this for my partner for our anniversary, she was absolutely over the moon when she opened it, it's an extremely well made product, the backpack aspect to this bag is genius as there's nothing worse than trying to hold a bag whilst trying to use your phone or pay for something, the embossing service is worth every penny
Very, very pleased. Product meets or even exceeds expectations. Surprisingly fast delivery across Europe. Thank you.
Love it! I get compliments on it all the time! :)
So many compartments in such a well made small bag. Great. Thank you
Very pleased with the satchel, which is roomy without being bulky. Well made too. Delivery was very prompt. Thank you!
Best Man Leather Wash Bag
Dad Leather Wash Bag
Got the roll-top back pack as a birthday gift. He loved it!
Very stylish and amazing quality. You even went the extra mile with the personalisation (as requested!). THANK YOU SO MUCH!!
very satisfied, high quality leather and craftsmanship
I cannot fault the quality of the bag I received, which was from the beautiful maverick range. Thick, rich leather wonderfully stitched together, both good-looking and functional. This one wasn't quite right for my purposes - the grab handle, which is concealed at the back in keeping with the more casual messenger style of this bag, is one I planned to use quite extensively but I found not to be ideal when the bag was fully loaded up with my laptop and papers. Easy, no quibble returns process though, and I look forward to hopefully finding the right Vida Vida bag for me in future.
Practical, looks good and the engraving is smart and personal. I'm glad I found your site!
Love it! We will buy the small one too.
We love it! We are buying now the Men's Classic Leather Satchel.
Lovely little bag, i ordered one as a christmas gift for my friend on the basis that i was brought one years ago when the company first began. Everyone comments on its look, and after all these years my original one is still going strong! Would highly recommend this bag! Perfect size for a purse, keys and phone, and goes with everything!!! Love the little letter and linen bag it comes in, nice touch guys!!
My husband is absolutely in love with his new bag that was bought for Christmas. What makes it more special is the gold embossing of his initials. Best decision going with Vida Vida. Happy New Year!!!
I ordered iPad case organiser and Shaving bag with razor pouch as a Christmas present for my husband, ordering was uncomplicated and received goods within a matter of days, so excellent customer services there. The quality and finish is great and you can just tell the care and love that went into making these..my husband was delighted (as was I) with them. They are so personal and individual, one of the best things are that they are not mass produced and they don't look mass produced .....but the best point (and that's why I love your company) the work, help and self worth your company does for craftsmen and their families. Keep up the great work. P.S this is second time I got my husbands Christmas presents from Vida Vida I purchased a manbag and travel bag a few years back ( they look even better now)which he constantly gets asked 'where did you get those ?' So the 'proof is in the pudding '
A really well made bag that arrived on time and in a protective linen bag with a little history about the company amd instructions on caring for the bag. An excellent buy.
Simply put, I love my new backpack :-) wonderful quality and just the right size for my laptop or camera
I bought this as a birthday treat. It is a lovely, simple backpack, just what I was looking for
