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!
Very satisfied with this product and delighted with the quality considering the very reasonable cost. Ideal for traveling.

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.
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!
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.
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. :)
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
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!
very satisfied, high quality leather and craftsmanship
Practical, looks good and the engraving is smart and personal. I'm glad I found your site!
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!!!
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.
Love the bag, been looking for exactly this for ages.
Brilliant product, but sadly, Vida Vida have not heard of "Customer Service".
I bought one of these in the summer and my daughter likes mine so much that I've bought her one too. Excellent quality and delivery time - thanks so much
Men's Midi Leather Satchel
A truly beautiful piece of craftsmanship. The quality is evident at first glance. The strong leather ouder does fade and the leather becomes softer. Excellent design and size.
I was so impressed by the brilliant service. Ordered size too big and you replaced it just in time for birthday, even before I'd sent first one back. Couldn't have been more friendly - and my husband loves his messenger bag.
A bit of fraying of the inside lining dropped it one notch from top review. Very happy with it otherwise.
A bit smelly on arrival! However a half hour with some good quality dubbing wax and we were good to go and smell free. The satchel suits my needs for the time being and I might well purchase a similar item if I am offered a discount as with the Christmas offers you have at the moment.
Love it. Got one as a Christmas gift for my brother. Made me sad to give it over so I bought one for myself. Then my dad saw and wanted one, so I ordered him one as well. Very well made. Very cool looking.
I received This bag as a birthday pressie to replace a rather delapidated old friend. It exceeded my expectations. Well made from soft,tough,resilient leather, superbly lined and with two handy zip pockets. I would highly recommend it. The fact that the Vida Vida puts money back into the community made the purchase even sweeter.
Bought as a Christmas present so recipient hasn't seen it yet. I'm very pleased with the quality of the satchel and also the excellent service.
I just wanted to drop you a quick line to say I received my bag from you on Monday and I love it! It's great! I also really liked how beautifully it was wrapped - it felt like I was receiving a present.
We have received the order today, thanks, and would like to compliment you on the beautiful presentation of the satchel in its pretty wrapping. It was a joy for us to receive.
I collected the bag Id ordered for my daughter today, she is thrilled with it. The bag is lovely and the packaging made it so special.
Just to say i am delighted with my new satchel; it's not my birthday or Christmas, but I feel as though it is when your parcel was delivered today!!!! Thanks for your prompt attention.
I just wanted to say that I am absolutely delighted with the satchel. Its for my 20 year old sons Christmas and I know he will be thrilled with it. It was so beautifully packaged and I loved the note..which I will enclose in his parcel. Thank you for such a high quality and truly lovely item.
Based on the pictures of your website, I was very hopeful of the quality of the product when I ordered, and when I received the order and opened the package, I could smell the quality even before I saw exactly what I had hoped for. I am extremely pleased!
I bought a satchel bag from you for my dad and I just wanted to let you know how impressed I am with the efficient service and quality product. I have bought a similar bag from another well known satchel company recently and I can honestly say the service I have received with you is like night and day in comparison ! Not only was the bag from the other company more expensive and of a poorer quality but it still hasn't arrived and I ordered it a month ago! When I purchased from your company, I ordered the bag at 11pm on Wednesday night and couldn't believe it when it arrived so quickly on Friday morning wrapped in a lovely bag. I just wish I had found your website earlier so I could have bought both bags from you! The bag itself is absolutely stunning as well and clearly of a high quality. Would absolutely recommend your brand to anyone wishing to purchase a satchel and I will not hesitate to buy from you again in the future :-)
Just want to say thank you for the quick delivery of my recent purchase; a black grande men's leather satchel. It looks beautiful and has real character. As a 21st birthday present, I know my boyfriend will love it and it will be great for his first teaching job in September!
I really love the satchel. The color of the leather is a little diffrent from the picture... but in a good way! The color of the leather is a little diffrent from the picture... but in a good way! It looks very authentic and classy!
Oh my goodness, I've just arrived home after a week of stress to the BAG OF PURE BEAUTY!!!! It is absolutely perfect, I could not be happier and the lettering is amazing!! Thanks so much for being so accommodating, and I'll be telling everyone about your company: Brilliant ethos, lush story and absolutely beautiful bags. Many thanks again and hope you have a fab weekend,
I recently received a leather messenger bag from your company as a Christmas present from my girlfriend (yeah I opened it early, got too eager) and I wanted to thank you not only for the kind message I received with the bag from the pair of you, but also for such an amazing product.I am a firm believer that customer service and customer relations are a major part of the buying experience and as a result I rarely shop online due to the lack of intimacy it brings. However, in this instance your letter not only made me smile, but also brightened my morning. Again, thank you very much for such an amazing product and a service any high end retailer would be proud of.
Thank you so much for getting my order out quickly, it arrived on time and is fantastic. Wonderful service thank you very much!
