The Weekender Backpack with Leather Base and Laptop sleeve

 You just can't buy this kind of quality with mass produced items. This bag is impeccably designed and incredibly tailored by hand and the craftsmanship and attention to detail show. The bag is extremely durable and also comfortable to wear. I look forward to enjoying it for years and years to come. Totally impressed with my purchase!"

The Weekender Pannier and Backpack

 It took a bit of time, but it was well worth it. Gorgeous & sturdy craftsmanship that should age beautifully.

The Weekender Pannier and Backpack with Laptop Sleeve

 Bought this bag for my partner and he loves it. Super classy and very functional - I think the larger size is good if you're looking to this bag to be a commuter bag (e.g, laptop, lunch, jacket, and all the other things that end up in your bag). It was hard for me to drop this much dough on a bag that I hadn't seen before, but I was really impressed with the craftsmanship and now want one for myself :). Plus MotleyGoods was a total champ. In mid-December he happily dealt with my new order and our insane holiday travel schedule and synced the delivery with our west coast holiday trip. I was then able to put it under the tree over the Christmas break. Seriously, big thumbs up!

The Backpack in Dark Floral Tapestry fabric with optional laptop sleeve

 This backpack is beautiful! I've been searching for something large enough to hold my school supplies (I go to art school so think sketchbooks, brushes, a laptop, etc.) that isn't hideous and I do believe I've now found the perfect bag. The materials used all feel very high quality and the bag seems very sturdy and durable. I love the way the top rolls down and buckles instead of zipping to keep closed. If you're looking for a really unique bag, look no further. Definitely worth the wait!

The Weekender Pannier and Backpack

Beautiful! It is so waterproof and durable and good-looking all at once. I am sure Ill use it forever. My boyfriend made fun of me for paying $200 and waiting 7 weeks for a pannier, but it is absolutely worth all the time and money.

The Weekender Pannier and Backpack with Laptop Sleeve

 Amazing! I live in Portland which equals lots and lots of rain. This bag has proved to be amazingly waterproof and very easy to put on my bike. Plus it's adorable. I definitely recommend!

Floral  Weekender Pannier with Laptop Sleeve

 I wanted to give this bag about a month or so of using it to see how it held up. I really love it- I receive compliments on it all the time. Cleveland did a custom order so it could fit my 17" laptop. I've never seen a pannier that had pockets inside (why not???). While the double pockets on the outside (1 velcro, 1 non-velcro) are great, when you fill your bag, the pockets become relatively tight spaces. Getting your hand in and out of the velcroed pockets is particularly tough- maybe a lighter velcro for the pockets would be better? Other than that, awesome craftsmanship!

The Backpack in Bull Denim with Leather Base with Optional Laptop Sleeve

The Craftsmanship in this bag is unbelievable, I have a new prized possession! I modified this order well beyond what was listed in the item. Not only did Cleveland work with me and go over all the changes I wanted to make but he also was professional and dealt well with my obsessiveness on every detail. This bag is honestly heirloom quality and something I will gladly hand down to my son when he grows up.

Floral Weekender with brown leather trim

 A huge thanks to Cleveland for making this wonderful custom backpack for me and my upcoming European adventure. It is everything I wanted it to be and more. Cleveland was a breeze to deal with, and once it was made it was shipped in record time. Motley Goods obviously provide high-quality, handmade wares that are functional and affordable. Can't wait to have an excuse to order another!

The Pannier/Backpack with Optional Laptop Sleeve

 An absolutely beautiful backpack! It's so well made and I can tell will be incredibly durable. I ordered it in burgundy and the color is amazing. It works really well as either a backpack or pannier and it's quick and easy to get it off your bike. I recommend this to anyone who wants a beautiful bag made of the highest quality.

The Pannier Weekender with Laptop Sleeve

   It's frickin amazing! I recently purchase a leather bag from etsy a couple of months ago. Piece of crap. Thought I give etsy another try and then I found Cleveland Motley. I bike to work everyday and I needed a bag that could keep up and this pannier weekender surely does the trick. This is no flimsy crappy bag. It's hardcore and I'm pretty sure it's going to last me a while. My test for the bag was to use it for grocery and it passed with flying color. It's huge and can fit anything you darn want. I just biked for half an hour in the rain and from how the bag is made, my laptop was completely dry. I love this bag. People love this bag. You will love this bag. Great product!!!!!! BUY IT!!!!!!!!!!!
