    J Crew Abingdon Messenger and Laptop bags



    I am looking for a nice bag for my laptop for this summer (and beyond), and the J Crew Abingdon bags looked awesome and relatively cheap (after a 20 or 30% discount).

    Does anyone have any experiences or pictures with the bags? Worth the money, does it look like it does in the picture, durable enough? Anyone seen them in stores? Thanks.

    I bought abingdon bag then returned it for the older Jcrew laptop bag that was featured. The abingdon bag looked nothing like the way it did in its pictures online.

      I've seen these up close. They look durable, but because they're made of wax cotton, any and all scuffs show up rather prominently. If you want a bag that looks a bit beat up after a short amount of time, then this may be for you. If you don't, look elsewhere - like last year's "rugged twill" bag that got a lot of pub on this site. They can be found on eBay from time to time.

        What's the setting you'll use it in? School? I think it would work there. I don't think it would work in an office setting.

          I was looking for causal office, and my price limit was about the cost of these on sale (70-80 bucks). Thanks for the info guys, I'll have to keep looking for other options until I can see one of these bags in person; I don't want to take the chance that it isn't going to work (esp with J crew shipping prices).

            After checking this post, I've decided not to buy bags from j. crew unless I see them in person first
