Comments about Melrose Leather Tote:
i bought the ballistic nylon version of the bag, #45311. It is a simple yet elegant tote. the nylon tote is rigid enough that it stands by itself, I am not sure if the leather version will flop over or not I bought the gray color, which is gray-green. The interior is a light color ballistic. There is one zipper pocket, and a open pocket for a iPad. There are also two open pouches for papers or books. The outside has a small slip pocket for a phone. The main zipper is metal, which can scratch your hands. The top of the tote is trimmed in stiff leather, which helps it retain its shape. There is a nice padded front haul loop. The main haul loops have one edge padded with extra leather. The bottom is leather and has leather feet. I bought this because I wanted something less bulky for short trips. The workmanship is excellent. I don't know if the bag will fit upright in a airplane overhead compartment, it is 13.25 in tall. The main haul loops naturally flop together, which helps when picking it up. But they get in the way when loading or unloading. I ends have a unique pattern to the seam, it is not a straight vertical seam.
