I really liked this backpack, but the snaps broke after a few months of use. I think it was mostly my fault because I was carrying heavy textbooks from home to school; and right back from school to home. I guess it could not take all the heaviness. So, buyers beware: this bookbag is not made for heavy lifting.
The backpack was good quality and value for the money, it simply was shipped in the wrong color! The box was stamped by the manuf. as DK. BROWN, but inside we found MOCA color?? Now MOCA isn't even a color choice for this model number so, there are some complicated issues here with this item in Dk.Brown. Not an Overstock picking error. Overstock decided to subtract the cost of the return shipping label (10%) from the refund, even after my providing color pictures from their web site to support the legitimacy for the return. So, after complaining to customer service about expecting me to pay for the return of wrong color sent, a full refund was made. All is well...
I love the color. I used it for an over night and it didn't quite fit for all the stuff I needed. . . my needs may be greater than a normal person. I'm happy with it and won't push it so hard the next time I need it. It is good for air travel. I have to take a portable oxygen concentrator with me in airplanes. A purse on my back really frees up the hands for dealing with other things.
I purchased this item for my wife as an Anniversary present (3rd Anniversary, Leather). She had been looking for a leather backpack/purse for some time but was having trouble finding one she liked at a reasonable prices. I found this item and it seemed good, based on prior reviews. She absolutely loves the backpack! The only flaw is that there are a couple of spots where the stitching is not perfect. However, they are not bad enough to warrant a return. Overall, very pleased.

This is a very nice looking backpack. It has good quality leather and is a nice size. Unfortunately, the lining of the zipper pocket was not sewed correctly. The pocket was unuseable. I had to pick out the stitches and sew it up correctly. Luckily, I have a sewing machine and know how to use it.

I really like the quality of this backpack, and it's super cute! But I'm returning it because it isn't big enough for my school needs. After one notepad of paper, a book or two, and maybe my wallet & and a bottle of water it won't stay closed. The snap button for the flap keeps popping open and it's super annoying. I bought the brown color, and the other review mentions the brown snap having the most problems, so that may be the problem. Either way, I'm going to purchase something with a zipper to avoid this problem in the future.
- How accurate was the sizing? Too small for me
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very Nice
- Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? Yes
