Great look. Very functional. Use daily.


The Montagu messenger has become my go to daily bag. It’s great for carrying my many devices and my daily essentials which I can’t leave home without. I feel at home with the bag on my shoulder whether I’m going to a business meeting or travelling on a plane. It’s finished to the exceptional standards that I’ve become accustomed to with Carl Friedrik products and I’ve received many compliments on the craftsmanship and look of the Montagu messenger bag. I highly recommend this product.

Leather is beautiful!

I ordered the cognac Montagu. Interestingly, I was never very fond of a cognac colored briefcase of any kind before. When I saw the cognac leather on the site, I was so taken by it that I really didn't consider any other color. It represents the highest quality leather I have ever owned in any product. I initially emailed a lot of questions and was taken back that both Niklas & Mattis Oppermann personally answered my emails, even suggesting the Palissy leather strap as I remarked about the high quality of the hardware on this strap.
I also ordered the Hatton wallet -in cognac of course, and love it as well. I will probably be back for a Palissy and/or a weekend bag in the near future.

I suggest anyone teetering about make a purchase here, watching the many YouTube videos of men fashion stylists (12+) who all raved about the quality and value for the money. It gives you the opportunity to see them for yourself. The Palissy & weekend bags are found in many videos, the Montagu, which I purchased appeared on "Real Men Real Style" -luxury items worth the money. It provides a really good look at the Montagu (cognac) and the high quality found in the leather. Like the Oppermann brothers, I was having trouble finding a quality briefcase that I liked, so I turned to YouTube and discovered Carl Friedrik.
