Floto Luggage Piazza Messenger Bag Review
Dedicated to producing timeless master pieces, Floto is one of those companies that has revamped on the old ways so as to continue making quality products. The company started in 2003 where they sought to build top of the line luggage products complete with distinct hardware and finishing. 11 years later, not only is the company still focused but has grown to one of the leading in the market. Today we take a look at one of their finest products, the Floto Luggage Piazza Messenger Bag.
Hand-crafted by Italian artisans, the Floto Luggage Piazza Messenger Bag embraces an iconic style coupled with genuine Italian calf-skin leather to give it an extra edge in both look and durability. Aside from its classic design, the bag comes packed with modern features guaranteed to helping you in your day to day activities as outlined below.
Polished Italian Calf-Skin Leather
If you are a fan on quality leather, then you know oiled calf-skin is designed to only get better with time. As those marks appear, they don’t destroy your bags image but rather soften it. On top of that, you are assured of a premium feel not to mention a lifetime of service from any well-made leather product from Floto.
Thanks to being hand-crafted, you will instantly feel a touch of precision especially along the edges. This is because of the attention to detail given to each product. As a result, you’ll get a better crafted product with minimal error margins. It’s always nice to see companies go that extra mile to bring perfection to their products.
If you are worried about interior space, you’ll be happy to know that you can easily fit a laptop alongside a large book, some files and a newspaper in the two separate main compartments with ease.
Besides that, the bag comes with a pen and smartphone holder, two extra outside gusset pockets and a large back zipper pocket all for your convenience. The bags interior is all covered in a soft fabric that gets the job done right every time.
Flip Over flap
Worried about security? The bag comes with a flip over flap that completely covers all your pockets hence making sure your items remain securely in place. On top of that, the flap gives you a confidence boost even when walking in busy streets.
Floto don’t spare anything when it comes to quality. The Piazza Messenger Bag comes complete with solid brass hardware. No cheap plastic or pot-metal here, instead you get a great looking brass which blends great with the bag’s saddle brown color.
Detachable Shoulder Strap
No longer do you have to keep fumbling with the long straps when you want to carry your bag by the handle provided. Simply unclip the shoulder strap and you’re good to go.
What We Didn’t Like
There are various reports of a foul smell that comes with the bag. Probably from how they treat their leather. Regardless, most users have reported that the smell is only temporary and goes away in a week’s time.
Priced at $xxx, the Floto Luggage Piazza Messenger Bag is for those looking for a premium elegant and well-designed leather bag. You can be sure you are not getting a 5-year product but rather a 15-20 year product and sometime even more. I highly recommend it to anyone in the market for a beautifully constructed professional leather bag from a dependable company.
