Commonly referred to as the manufacturer of quality, the Visconti Brand is no stranger in the bag industry. The company has always prided in their ability to blend style, quality and durability.
With over 15 years of experience, the Visconti brand has without doubt helped shaped the industry to what it is today. Moreover, they remain committed to delivering nothing but the best. Today we take a look at another one of their products, the Visconti Foster 16072 13.3 inch Distressed Oiled Leather Laptop Messenger Bag.
Visconti has always been about traditional style and even with this bag, that hasn’t changed. Being the most popular in the Visconti Hunter range, the Foster 16072 is built with top of the line products and encompasses over 15 years’ worth of design and perfection. On top of that, the bag also comes with a variety of features that we take a look at in detail below.
Visconti Foster Uses Quality Leather
Like all other Visconti products, the bag boast of a quality distressed genuine leather that has been engineered to provide a long lasting solution. Carefully tanned so as to achieve a semi-worn look to it, the leather is above average.
The distressed leather will, over time get wrinkles, scratches, and scars all of which are inherent characteristics and natural beauty of the hide similar to the more expensive tumi messenger bag. This is why they always say leather gets better with age.
Complete with contrast stitching, Visconti assures that they have tested the bag for durability even in the roughest environments or when under stress.
Inside, we find a large single zipped compartment ideal for large documents, magazines or even newspapers alongside card holders, pen holders and a cell phone pocket. It can easily hold a 13.3 inch Macbook Air or equivalent laptop.
On the exterior, we have another large zipped compartment, a vertical zipped pocket, perfect for holding your urgent documents as well as an open sleeve under the flap.
Removable Laptop Sleeve
In addition to all the pockets, you also get a removable laptop sleeve capable of holding a 13.3″ laptop or any sized iPad or tablet. Additionally, you can also remove the sleeve to create room for even for of your stuff.
Like most Visconti products, the Foster 16072 comes with two magnetic brass snaps designed to securely hold down the flap in place. This makes it easy to reach in and grab something you need quick without all the hassles of a strap.
The Foster 16072 comes with a stylish and professional look to it that allows it to be used for office, school or business. On top of that, the bag comes in 3 distinct colors; black, tan and brown so you have a wide variety to choose from. This is one of those bags that answer the question, messenger bag vs briefcase?
Visconti Customer Service
If there’s a reason why most of their customers find it hard to switch to another manufacturer, it has to be the amazing customer service that comes with any purchase of a Visconti product. They will pick your calls, answer your emails and even help you out in any situation arising from their products. Maybe you are looking for a product to give the bag a waxy feel, or something to remove stains etc. they will readily help you out.
Priced at $139.99, the Visconti Foster 16072 13.3 inch Distressed Oiled Leather Laptop Messenger Bag is without doubt a one of a kind bag. Composed of fine craftsmanship, premium leathers and a superior build quality, it’s safe to say that Visconti may well have discovered the perfect recipe for a long-lasting carrying solution. I highly recommend the bag to anyone in the market for a solid, reliable and casual looking messenger bag and I’ve listed it in my round up of the best shoulder bags for men article here.
