First I purchased the same item in a different color and loved it. So then, I decided to purchase the black version. I just started using it two weeks ago and it is already falling apart! the hardware that holds the long strap on starting pulling apart within a week. Used a ziptie to hold that together and realized that the sewing on one side of the bag is pulling apart. Considering that the 'chestnut' (actually orange) version was fine for the six months I have used it, I don't understand why this one is so crappy.
I'm mixed about this bag. Yes it a big bag but it's not gigantic. It's a little heavy but I wanted a substantial leather bag. I use it primarily as my work bag, it's roomy with good funtionality however my crossbody strap broke within the first month. The issue is with the swivel ring not the leather quality. I've got my Mr. Fixit of a dad working it. The shoulder straps have a long enough drop that it's still comfortable to carry. Although I've had this issue I'm still pleased with this purchase.
I absolutely love this bag : it IS big, not huge. It's a bit heavy though. I ordered the black one and intend to order another color!! The leather is very soft and looks expensive. Nice quality (even though I'm not fond of gold hardware) I love that the long strap is detachable. Short straps are long enough to carry the bag on the shoulder (I even tried with my big winter coat on!!) I'm 5"3 and the bag the does not look huge on me :) I can put everything inside... even my lunch box! oh and... the storage pouch is HUGE, nice move Presa!! I'll use it for my shoes haha. I LOVE IT!!
All hail the Presa bag. This is an absolutely amazing bag. Although I wanted the eggplant and teal I got the black. The bag is very chic. It' s not too big and you have options. You can wear it crossbody, on the shoulder, in the fold of your arm as well as a hand bag. I love it so, I can't wait until they bring back ALL of the colors so I can get the rest of them. Also, the gold accents are the best as it brings it up another notch.
Some reviewers were critical of the size of this bag. It is quite large, but that is exactly what I was looking for. I love that I can fit lots inside including snacks. I use the two outside pockets for beverages. This multi-purpose bag is perfect for a day trip, business travel, or just a day full of meetings. I am very pleased with this bag. If you are seeking just a handbag, then the size of this bag is probably too large for you.

The bag is large, great quality leather. I was shocked at not only the quality of the bag itself but of the huge dust bag that came with it. The dust bag alone could fit several bags of this size and the dust bag is nicer than some bags you find in high end stores. I was blown away with this purse and I am so glad I bought two. They both came together in the same box and they came quickly. I felt as though I was shopping at a very expensive store and was expecting security to come by and tell me I hadn't paid enough. :D

- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Wonderful leather, rich color

Very soft & buttery texture - great statement piece. I bought this bag in the color purple - nice deep but still vibrant shade! The gold hardware along with the purple took a bit of getting used to - I love this bag but the one con is how slouchy it is... the weight of the leather and hardware at the top of the bag causes it to puddle quite a bit if you don't fill it up. In my opinion, the lack of shape makes it a purse for casual use as opposed to professional office wear

- How accurate was the sizing? size is exactly what i was looking for, big but not too big
This is a big bag--great for when you need to lug around a lot of stuff, especially when traveling and you have extras like cameras, reading material, notes, snacks, water bottles, etc. It's also good for shopping trips where you're picking up a lot of small stuff that you can consolidate into the one bag. In addition to the black bag, I also have it in navy and I love both bags. I'm considering getting it in eggplant next--for the price, you can't beat it!

- Please tell us about the quality of the product. This was the second Kennington bag I purchased--I loved the first one because the materials are excellent (high quality soft leather, heavy duty goldtone metal hardware) and very good construction
- How accurate was the sizing? The dimensions are accurate, it's big.
This is a great bag! It is large, but if you are carrying a heavy laptop, this is your bag. It is extremely well-made, so can handle a heavy laptop or a purse full of important "stuff." The color and quality of materials match the description exactly. I would highly recommend this bag!
