Leather tote recommendation?

I'm hoping someone here can help with a recommendation. I'm looking for a large leather tote bag with nice, soft leather and long straps. I'd like to be able to put my netbook, Kindle, water/snacks, wallet, ziplock bag of liquids, etc. in it to carry on the plane. I don't want something that's like a briefcase but more of something like a large purse. I'm willing to pay whatever it takes to get just the right bag. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!

You might look at the muzettos from www.sfbags.com.

I like this one: Clava Leather Tote
Is that the sort of thing you're looking for?

Brics on sale at Rue La La

The OP asked for leather tote recommendations, but I thought, since Brics was mentioned, I'd let you know there's a sale on Brics.

The Brics X-Bag Sportina shopper is on sale in 12" and 14" sizes at ruelala.com. The 12" is $49.90, down from $130 MSRP. The 14" is $69.90, down from $150. Rue La La is one of those sites that pressures you to buy by having flash sales. The Brics sale goes on for another day and 20 hours. I think Rue La La also requires an invite from someone who has a login already. This is my invite:

Rue La La invite

If you buy something after clicking the link and registering, I get a credit.

The Brics X-Bag Sportina Shopper on amazon.com has a title different from the two on ruelala.com. Amazon's seems closest to the 14" Brics X-Bag Sportina Shopper at ruelala.com.

Amazon: "L 18.11 x H 13.78 x D 5.91 and weighs 1.19 lbs"
Rue La La: "17in wide x 14in tall x 6.5in deep" (no weight listed)

I want to warn you about Rue La La's return policy. "You may choose to receive either a merchandise credit and free return shipping..., or a refund to your original form of payment minus return shipping costs...be sure that we receive the merchandise you wish to return within 30 days from the date you originally received it..." Thirty days is not a lot of time to return something if you're always on the road.

Rue La La also has some Brics luggage on sale.
