I love the look of this bag which I bought in the black and gold. Lots of places to put items so everything doesn't fall to the bottom which is important in a larger bag. It is a little oversized for me but my main complaint is the shoulder strap which is very long and impractical. I did shorten it by poking a hole in the strap with a scissor, but it is still too long and hits me in the leg every time I walk. I think its great as a tote but not so great as a shoulder bag which is an option I like to have.

I really wanted to like this bag. I have several Amerileather handbangs from Overstock and have had no problems. I did not like the strap construction on this bag because they weren't "finished". Seems like they just took some scraps of leather and threw them on to make handles. As this is a large bag and I tend to fill mine up, I felt like the straps wouldn't hold up over time with added weight.I also though the bag was opened by lifting up the flap in the front, but it doesn't. It opens by a zipper up top.

Quick shipping--ordered Sunday received early in the day on Wednesday. Will be using it for the first time today (Thursday). So cannot comment yet on wear and tear. Appears very high quality. I don't really like the way the braided rope ties on the side make a little noise. But I tucked mine into the woven stitches. The leather is SO soft, but the bag is clearly squarely structured. Looks more expensive than the price I paid. Based on what I see initially, I would recommend the brand and plan to buy more. The only thing that would change my opinion is if the leather does not holding up well.
