I was not expecting this level of quality and detail. This is a beautiful bag! I had been looking at the other two big vendors and was vacillating over which one to buy. Finding out that these now had working drain holes made the choice for me, and I am so glad that I did! This bag is wonderful and I could not be happier! This will be my new everyday bag! Good going Mr. Magnoli!..

This bag is really solid. It fits my needs of carrying around a small notebook, pens, and small electronics (phone and ipod) to class. It looks like it can hold up to Chicago weather. Overall it is a great bag. Everyone should own one. Very detailed. If you want an Indy bag then this is for you...

The bag+strap arrived today, ahead of schedule. I expected a heavier fabric but the bag seems well made. I haven't used it yet but I expect it to serve me diligently, longer than I might reasonably demand. The inner compartments seem very useful as well but I expect it'll take time to get properly acquainted with the unusual placement of the dividers. I am not as pleased with the strap, though. Three stars for now but only because I don't yet know the product well...

Exactly 3 weeks and 2 days after ordering the bag + strap arrived. Not bad at all for a trip from down under to Belgium. The bag probably has more mileage then me:-) It was packaged nice and tight, no damages. Now for the bag itself: it feels like it will last for years. Quality finished. The leather belt (ordered seperately) feels a bit stiff, but daily use will soon remediate that. The only thing left to do is convince my friends it is a man bag not a purse. As usual they will soon ask where I got it from .....so get ready for more orders, Magnoli :-)..

I ordered this bag because I wanted something I could use every day, and the original Mark VII satchels are--well, they're 70 years old, and often somewhat less than sturdy. This bag is accurate to the originals in every detail, down to the stamp on the flap and the patina on the metal disc, without the mildew smell and are much better made. And to my eye, the olive color is perfect. Leave the originals as the historic artifacts they are, and get one of these. You won't regret it. Pair it with the deluxe strap (made by Wade Egan and a thing of beauty in its own right), and you'll have something that is both functional and attractive. I've been told mine is "understated and very classy!" Doesn't get much better than that... Additionally, the shipping from New Zealand to the US took less than two weeks, and it arrived in splendid condition. I'm thinking of ordering another one, just to have it on hand. Good job, Mr. Magnoli!..

I'd been looking for a good bag to replace my original MK VII bag for a while now, as the ones I've had, had the same problem: they're 70 some years old and the O ring straps kept falling apart. So, I decided to retire my last bag before it fell apart completely and bought it here from Indy (his name is Indy, after all). Ordered it, about a week and a half later, it shows up. I opened it and I got what I paid for: a good bag. It's the right size, shape, et al. The only downside is that it is not an olive green color like Mr. Ford slug around in Raiders and Temple, but more a deep khaki akin to Last Crusade and/or Crystal Skull (if I recall spotting correctly). Being that you can get an exact bag online elsewhere for roughly the same price, I wouldn't see the harm in having two variants for this bag: a version A with the olive green seen in Raiders/Temple, and version B with the deep khaki in Last Crusade/Crystal Skull. The reason I didn't just up and by another original MK VII bag was that I knew it was going to fall apart sometime in the future, not by wear, but just by time. It'd be an ideal world where you can get something that not only looked right (not saying that this isn't right or anything) but also lasted. Alas, as I've learned recently; you can't have your cake and eat it, too...
