C3–1 Backpack

well-made and beautiful, but doesn't fit 15" laptops as stated

The leather is supple, and the hardware is durable, but the bag is too small for 15" laptops; the corresponding compartment zipper won't close. Also, it took about three months for the bag to arrive, but I got a CF card holder for my patience, and I'm sure it was just a holiday backup. I'll continue to do business with CF.

Outstanding personal service !

I ordered my Carl Friedrik C3-1 backpack and then - disaster!
It was sold out - and very delayed! However - Niklas was a star - keeping me informed and up to date with progress.
Eventually my C3-1 arrived - and it’s fabulous - nearly as good as Niklas’s customer service !!
Well worth the wait !! Thank you.

Beautiful and luxurious

Beautiful and luxurious as I have written. It is also at the right size for a man... I didn't regret, I ve bought it (and wait for so long).
I would like to be informed if it is water resistant, as I am not sure.

Thanks Agisilaos for your kind review! In terms of water-resistance: The fabric is coated and is water resistant. The leather is quite thick so water doesn't go through it either (unless in extreme cases). It's not a 'water-proof' product, and if exposed to heavy rain there might be a little leakage. In terms of the leather, the black colour you have doesn't get discoloured. The lighter fango brown colour, however, is a bit sensitive as it's very natural. If you wish to protect the lighter colours, you can use a water-proofing spray to protect it. Hope this helps! /Niklas
