      Excellent quality bag

      I bought the Tay because it looked good and seemed to be just what I wanted. It turned out to be more than that. The quality is even better than I expected. So good that I went back and bought the Humber hold-all which is also excellent. I’m really happy with both buys and I actually believe the Kovered ad line that these could be the last bags I’ll need to buy.

      Nice backpack

      I'd been looking for a bag to carry laptop and other small work bits and pieces which looked good but not too formal/normal. This fits the bill perfectly and carries work things, lunch and room for more if needed. Great design, good looking, well made and a nice colour.

      Birthday present

      Got this for my brother's birthday - he loves it!

      Its made of comfortable, strong material and has the perfect amount of space for my MacBook Pro 16 and all the accessories I bring around with me for it. With some space to spare for a change of clothes or some snacks for on the go.
