I bought this bag for myself.
However, my wife managed to con it off me for a few months.
It survived everything my wife could do to it - scraped, bashed, dumped, bumped and generally abused.
Supercool, a lifetime partner.
Great design, beautiful leather, nice feel. I agree with Jimmy though, could use a separator.
Amazing bag, I'll never buy anything else than a knomo!
Amazing bag, I'll never buy anything else than a knomo!
What Knomo did with this bag is leave no room for compromise in their pursuit for perfection. Design ,features and value for money blows many bags away..
Yes, it's a bit pricey but, really, who cares, it's a fantastic bag ! If you're looking for a well made, strong and good looking bag. You've found it.
In the non laptop side it could do with a separator or two for documents and papers, but overall fantastic. The whole bag has been made with amazing quality, exactly the same as a £800 Mulberry. Once again another stunning bag
No compromises. This is the most stylish and practical briefcase.
This bag has something magical to it. Its classic lines, rich leather and lovingly-designed interior are a great pleasure. There are careful details to the handles, zips and seams that I've only just noticed, and which blend together to create a hugely practical and durable bag, which I feel confident to carry into all sorts of different work situations.
Sarah Trinder at Knomo was very helpful and patient with me in selecting the right bag, as I was a little hesitant about spending this amount of money. But I haven't regretted it at all, and would certainly recommend Knomo's excellent and friendly customer service.
Beautifully designed. Exceptional quality.
After 10 years of dragging round an old Sony Vaio laptop bag, I finally decided to invest in something stylish and grown up. Looked in department stores for about 6 months before stumbling across Knomo online.
Apart from the delivery man leaving it behind my car instead of getting it signed for and me not seeing it until the next day, I was absolutely delighted when I got the Warwick out of the box.
Everything about it says class from the soft leather to the industrial zips. Little touches like the magnets in the flap that keep it flush with the side of the bag.
A huge amount of thought has gone into the design to make it not only beautiful to look at but functional and effortless to use in the many practical situations that arise during the daily commute.
Initial impressions excellent. Will write another review once I've road tested it for a few months.
An excellent product
If the brand is new to you, do not be put off. The two or three different Knomo products I looked over prior to purchasing my Warwick bad were all of excellent quality.
Well thought out, very good quality materials and excellent construction. Also, dont overlook the fact that this is a British company making excellent products. Fabricated in China, but to very exacting design standards. I wish it were made in the UK also, but I'm sure the economics (and probably skills shortage) of doing so would likely have made the item more expensive - a compromise most of us wouldn't countenance.
I'm fussy but Knomo ticks all my boxes.
A lifetime investment
Agreed with the guy above, I also chose my Knomo over a Tumi. The quality of the leather, zips and attention to detail on the interior is outstanding.I can see this bag will last me many years if I look after the leather. A real treat to myself, stoked!
I didn't before but now, I Knomo
The strap is surprisingly durable. I usually find that bags eventually hurt my shoulder or hands but I can hold this in my hands for hour long journeys and barely even notice. I had normally made a point of getting sports bags or holdalls to carry my bits around in which can look a bit strange on my way to work but until now, I hadn't had a bag that could carry my essentials without being over sized and unattractive.
The shoulder strap feels secure and able to withstand the usual wear and tear you might expect from a bag and I find it easy to open the clips and remove the shoulder starps, even with my oafish large fingers.
The interior is perfectly soft and quilted and the two colours work well together.
For a little over £200, I recommend Knomo to everyone who wants a bag and everyone who comments on mine.
Great value for money and it lives up to the good reviews I have heard baout the brand. I didn't before but now, I Knomo.
This is the best briefcase I have ever owned. It simply blows my old Tumi out of the water. At first I was a little skeptical because of not knowing the brand, but the salesman at Innovation luggage assured me I was getting a quality product. I showed it to my wife and she loved it more than she loves me. Thanks alot knomo what an amazing product.
A well engineered bag that oozes style mixed with practicality
This bag oozes quality and style all over. From the well engineered straps and zips to the soft interior finish; the bag has a quality feel.
The strap is built to last and just holding it you feel that its stronger than your car seat belt. I've had bags from Hugo Boss, Tumi and other brands and often find that the connectors that connect the strap to the bag stretch over time and can start to open. The material for the connectors on The Warwick bag feel well made and well engineered, they feel like they'll last longer than your shoulder and the laptop you'll carry around in it for sure!
The interior is well finished and looks mature with the burnt orange colour. There are three elastic pockets inside which happily hold your passport, pens and wallets etc.
If I have one criticism of the bag it would be the lack of a power supply holder - many bags in this price band come with a small zipped bag to fit your laptop power supply in, without it you'll have to wrap the power cable around the power supply, this looks messy and often gets tangled with other things in the bag.
That said this bag is excellent, well built, classy and stylish. For £245 you can't go far wrong, its a clear £100 cheaper than the closest Tumi, yet feels like it should be a clear £100 more expensive!
Very well made/stylish bag but heavy
I fell in love with the bag when I first saw it for its design and quality of finishing including the details on the zips, buckles, and stitching. The best part is that it also protects the laptop well enough with a padded interior. I like the tan colour too. Stylish and fashionable.
The only downside from making it a 5-stars bag is the weight. On its own, it is quite heavy. When I put in my 15" laptop, documents and power adapter. I could feel the strain on my arms/shoulders. Perhaps the designer might want to consider lighter materials for future production to make it easier to bring around.
quality and style, just shy of perfect
great bag, absolutely beautiful. quality materials and craftsmanship. love the green lining. a grown-up bag that's stylish without looking silly. only things keeping this bag from being perfect are the absence of feet on the bottom of the bag, and it could be a bit more accomodating in specialized storage for the cords and other electronic detrious we call carry around with us.
Fantastic Laptop Bag
I was never intending on spending this amount on a laptop bag, but I could not resist the knomo. The quality of finish, the attention to detail and most importantly, the sheer beauty of the bag sets it apart from everything else on the market. I, and all of my friends love it, and we all agree you have a great product here!
Keep making great products like this and I can guarantee that I will keep buying them!!!
Oustanding quality, great value for money...
There is no doubt that this bag delivers great value for money, high quality and a luxury feel. Compare the price to other brands in the same sector and you can't find better. The Warwick is my first Knomo and I'm considering my second already!
This is bag I use for travel and day to day use, luxury quality for my macbook Pro and plenty of room for my accessories. Beautifully made and easy to put over the shoulder.
