“Leather Satchel Review For Scaramanga”

Written on: 26/06/2013 by PhilZW (1 review written)

Ordered my 15 inch leather satchel on Friday and it was delivered the following Monday. The satchel arrived in a neat cream cotton drawstring dust bag. They kept me updated confirming the order had been placed, printed, was being packed and then despatched. The satchel is very sturdy and well made. The leather is a wonderful rich brown with a lived in look and feel while being new. The top handle option looks great and feels comfy when carrying it. Their price was better than the many other… Read Full Review

“Brilliant bags”

Written on: 24/01/2013 by CasperSlides (1 review written)

One of the more pleasant experiences that I have had on the internet, so I felt that I must write about it. The bag was of fantastic quality and looks much more expensive than it actually was. Item arrived within 48 hours of order being placed and the staff who I spoke to when I thought that I had made a mistake in the order were incredibly polite and helpful. My only concern is that somebody might me mug me for it; it looks so good and so expensive!… Read Full Review

“Simply perfect”

Written on: 01/11/2012

I have been looking for distressed leather bags everywhere. It seems that no one knows how to read my mind. I needed a bag for University and normal daily wear. I usually carry a couple of books (either regular and text books), kindle, umbrella, small bottle of water, huge wallet.. overall lots of stuff, so usually my bags become quite heavy. So, I wanted it with a handle AND a shoulder belt. I was struggling with other bags, I want them simple, without thousands of zips everywhere, but they're… Read Full Review

My Bag arrived today and I love it. Its a Medium sized mens satchel. It seems well made anthe leather looks great. Looks just like the one on the advert which is a relief. I ordered it on Wednesday at 4.30pm and it arrived on friday with the standard delivery. Good luck finding as good or even better quality for anywhere near the same price… Read Full Review

“Poor quality cardboard”

Written on: 25/04/2012 by Sadbagman (1 review written)

So disappointed with this bag. The bag I bought was a satchel with a strap .i was exoecting a wonderful soft leather bag with a robust strap and internal compartments. What i got is a bag that could have been made out of cardboard. The leather was stiff and unforgiving. I gave it the benefit of the doubt, hoping that it was just new leather stiffness and that it would become increasingly flexible as it matured. However, before it had time to mature the strap had become detached, the lining had… Read Full Review

“Gorgeous Vintage Leather School Satchel By Scaramanga”

Written on: 26/10/2011

I absolutely LOVE my new school satchel. It is exactly as described, but even more beautiful! The leather is sturdy and has a gorgeous vintage dark brown colour that am sure will age very nicely. The design is exactly what I wanted and so hard to find. I search on Google and saw some from Cambridge Satchel Co, but they had a thin shoulder strap and weren't vintage looking enough for me. I did a LOT of research, Scaramanga's were the best looking. Their design is very simple, well made and look… Read Full Review

“Amazing leather satchel!!”

Written on: 18/08/2011 by emmayoung (1 review written)

I have just bought the most beautiful leather satchel flight bag from scaramanga. It smells great and looks divine! I cannot wait to use it as I imagine I will get lots of envious looks. I am so so glad that I found scaramanga before ordering a satchel from someone else that would be way more expensive and not nearly as nice. Thank you so much Scaramanga for your excellent service and help with the order. I will be back mamy mamy more times. Highly recommended!!… Read Full Review

“I have just received my Scaramanga bag after ordering...”

Written on: 12/01/2011

I have just received my Scaramanga bag after ordering 2 days ago and it is absolutely beautiful.

I went for the large Overlander satchel, which is really big (I'd imagine that the medium would be ample enough for most people) but I purposely wanted a large bag for overnight stays and popping home from university as I prefer satchels to wheelie cases (I'm terribly clumsy).

Anyway, after reading great reviews of the quality of Scaramnaga products and the great customer service I decided to… Read Full Review

Written on: 31/12/2010

Objective: buy a vintage leather satchel. A brown antique leather leather satchel big enough for work stuff, but with real vintage clothing looks and not new looking. Not as hard to find online as I thought it would be. It really was exactly what I was looking for. Or rather what I was instructed to buy!
Genuine first class service. First class product. The finish, craftsmanship, colour and leather are fantastic. Only down point is I bought it for my sister and not for me. But they have other… Read Full Review

I agree. I bought a flight bag to use as a baby bag and I get so many comments on it. Scaramanga is a fab company and sells so many lovely things. I am about to order one of their lovely chests now to use as a memory box for my 2 children - the question is which one to go for as there are so many!! Thanks Scaramanga .

“My grandmother bought me a satchel for my birthday,...”

Written on: 02/10/2010

My grandmother bought me a satchel for my birthday, and I was expecting a generic satchel style you see every day. What I got was a beautifully crafted, substantial bag in a really warm coloured leather. Not something you would find in Topshop and for much better value. It's comfortable and can fit books and my laptop in. This company is a little gem! I'm so glad that I've found bags like these and am curently buying one for my boyfriend… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/09/2010

I had been looking for a leather satchel just like this for ages, and when it arrived I was so pleased with it - it was exactly what i'd been looking for. I love the vintage, unique look of the leather, the bag is strong and sturdy enough to carry lots of books and my laptop (I'm a uni student) and there's loads of room to fit everything in easily. The price is also a big bonus, as most leather bags cost £100s, so to get one that is so nice - I actually like it better than all the really… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/08/2010

If only all internet shopping was as pleasurable as this! I knew exactly what I wanted.A vintage brown leather satchel large enough for my Macbook and other stuff for work and one that could be used for going out shopping. I really wanted a vintage leather satchel with lots of character.One that looks as if it had been used. Although I found Scaramanga's leather bags, I did look elsewhere, I really wanted to see and feel the bag, but most of what I saw in the shops were too small and really… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/07/2010

This was a nice bag, that I would have been happy to use regularly. Style-wise, it was just what I wanted. BUT----and it's a big BUT------it stank. The leather smells like dead animals----honestly. I am really disappointed, and wouldn't recommend Scaramanga to anyone, for this reason. I would rather have paid a bit more, and had something made from quality leather that didn't smell… Read Full Review

Hello - I am very sorry that you were disappointed with your bag. Leather bags do have a distinctive smell but we do now use different leather and leather suppliers which means the natural smell is reduced. Regards Scaramanga

Written on: 10/06/2010

I first saw this satchel in May's Vogue and knew I had to own one. I was a little disappointed to find out that it was out of stock. But they e-mailed me as soon as they were back in (10 days later) and I was quick enough to get one before they were out of stock again. I absolutely love my new bag.
Vintage leather satchels seem to be this year's 'must have leather bag. Scaramanga's leather satchels look vintage with a fab brown colour.
The bag came in just two days and arrived in a lovely… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/05/2010

Trust me, you can't find this bag anywhere else. Especially for this price!I really did not think I would be able to find the exact bag I wanted: a leather satchel with a vintage or antique leather at a good price. I had seen many costing over £200 and a few for around £150. But after a short search I found Scaramanga vintage leather satchels for just under £60 for a mediu sized bag. They had so many to choose from, but I ended up going for their old school satchel sytle bag. They had some… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/02/2010

This is my second Scaramanga bag. The first was bought just over a year ago, my sister took a shine to it a Christmas and I reluctantly gave it to her. This time round I wanted a bigger bag (the first was a medium wide satchel) so I bought the large wide satchel. The style and layout is exactly the same as the othwer sizes, but it's juts a bit bigger.
I read their site reviews and ordered. Two days later it arrived. No disappointments. Great vintage looking leather, longer wider strap… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/12/2009

I have been looking for a big leather bag just like this for so long. It's fantastic. I love the space and handy pockets. It'll be ideal for my uni books, laptop and as an occasional overnight bag. I thought it might be too big, but I just shortened the strap and wear it higher up. I love the thick buckled shoulder strap and the vintage leather finish. Scaramanga seem to be the only ones selling anything like this. Great service too. The bag arrived three days after ordering it.

“Bought a women's medium wide leather satchel. ”

Written on: 19/11/2009

Bought a women's medium wide leather satchel.

Very good product - just as was pictured on the site.

The only issue was that i requested and paid for next day and delivery and they instead sent it by normal delivery. It was therefore a day late for a b'day.

When contacted they did refund the £2.50 charge, but still annoying and a basic slip up.

Nonetheless, the bag was worth the wait… Read Full Review
