I got this tote for college for a couple of classes over the summer. This first thing I noticed as soon as I opened the box was the strong smell of leather. Unfortunately, not the expensive kind you smell on an expensive leather purse or jacket. Having said that, it makes sense once you look at the workmanship. The small leather pieces are sewn on the canvas bag and handles. It is not bad workmanship, I would say a little bit above average. The interior is of a lighter cotton material. Unfortunately, it is of black color which makes it difficult to see and/or find your things since this is a deep tote. The cell phone and extra pocket is of average size. The zipper pocket is also of average size. I wish the zipper and light interior material was of better quality because zipper does not zip/unzip smoothly. You have to hold the end of zipper with one hand as you pull the zipper with the other hand. Definitely not a one hand job like other totes from outlets (e.g. Coach, etc.) The leather pieces are sewn in place to reinforce the tote. This tote is light in weight, especially for its size. I am hoping this tote will hold up over time. I had to spray the interior cotton lining with Febreeze and air it out for a couple of hours. Due to the the colorful leather--some light colors, I used a heavy duty waterproof spray on both the interior, the entire exterior, both sides of the handles and shoulder strap, and the coin purse. I wanted to do this because of the light color exterior canvas because this helps with stains and I do not worry about the rain on the leather/canvas. This bag fits my 13 inch MacBook Air, a couple of text books, a binder, pencil pouch, water bottle and snack. Exactly what I wanted it for. The extra shoulder strap is a plus to securely wear it, leaving you hands free for when you are grabbing lunch at the cafeteria or in the library pulling books from the shelf. All in all, this is what I was looking for. I do like the design and its uniqueness. However, $$$ is a bit steep for this tote. I think $49.99 is more of a fair price taking the average material in consideration. I guess the $25.00 is for the labor for all the many sewn pieces. I will try to remember to update this post after 6 months of college use. :)

LOVE THIS BAG!!!!! I'm used to carrying Coach, Dooney & Burke, or even Brighton. My husband gets me a purse every year for Christmas, but I didn't want to spend a mint this year. I chose other gifts, but a week before Christmas, he was still upset that I wasn't going to have a purse under the tree. Out of frustration and desperation, I got on Overstock and started looking for REAL leather purses and totes. I was VERY satisfied with the quality of the bag for the price! When I opened the dust bag, the smell of leather was intoxicating. It is very soft and supple leather ,and the colors are gorgeous. The straps are reinforced, as is the bottom, the leather pieces are sewn on to other fabric. Which is good since the bag is huge, and the tendency is to fill it up. Which I do! It also comes with a removable shoulder strap, but I haven't used it. The flowers on the front curl up, which is fine with me. I feel like it adds character. I've had SO many compliments already! The only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is that I'm not crazy about the zipper. It has a tendency to get twisted up, and it looks like the bag could definitely outlast it. Overall, I'm quite satisfied, and have every intention of purchasing another Amerileather bag from Overstock.com!!!

I was very surprised at the quality of leather: it's magnificent (and I own several Coach bags!) And the size is perfect: not to big, not to small, with lots of divided space (I'm 5'0"/125lbs). I, too, was surprised at the "cheap" nylon lining though. That being said, it's well worth the price for the bag! I'd have happily given 4 1/2 stars!

I'm nothing short of delighted with this new bag! As a Coach fangirl, I'm pretty finicky about leather goods so was pretty skeptical about this product. I mean, how can they produce a very intricate design on a huge genuine lambskin bag for this price? Ridiculous! It's super cute, unique, a great size for lugging everything back and forth to work each day, and the quality is actually really great. If you're on the fence, get off and buy this now.

FOR A AMERILEATHER PRODUCT THIS BAG WAS DISAPPOINTING. POOR CONSTRUCTION, GLUED AT SOME PLACES AND OTHERS NOT, BOTH SIDES OF BAGS DO NOT MATCH, 1 HAS STUDS, OTHER DOESNT, PICTURES DONT SHOW THAT. THE MODEL IN LISTING MUST BE 8 YEARS OLD BCUZ IT LOOKS HUGE AND ROOMY ON HER BUT REALLY ISNT THAT BAG. NO PROTECTION GEAR/ STUDS ON BOTTOM OF BAG TO PROTECT FROM FLOOR....ALMOST $** COULD HAVE GONE TO A COACH OUTLET STORE

I bought this for an everyday bag and it is great. The only thing I don' t like is the flat black finish. It is the same as one of the typical Coach brand bags so if you love that type of finish you will love this bag. I thought it would be a brighter finish. Aside from that it is a great bag for the price. When they say casual it is and I like that for a bag I carry daily. You could also use it for business casual dress, so the bag is versitile, also a plus in my book. Great bag for the price, you can't go wrong.

I would recommend this handbag to everyone...I loved itthe minute i saw it...it has a lot of room with 3 different compartments....The outside of the purse is very nice and soft and the straps are the perfect length...i found that it's the perfect purse for me because i carry several items at all times... This is the best purse i have ever bought and purses are my thing...iInormally carry Coach and Dooney and Burke but this tops them for the Price, Texture and durability....
