I love my Leather Backpack. The quality and feel of the bag is great. The bag is well constructed. The straps are strong and the bag holds quite a bit. For those of you who are looking for something lasting. This is the one. I recommend it to all.
Bought this for my daughter, a freshman in college, who needed a backpack. She didn't want a full size, typical one so this smaller version suits her purposes just fine. She took it on a trip to use as a purse with room for a water bottle, souvenirs, etc. My daughter is very picky about her accessories & she likes this backpack so It's a hit with me too!
- How accurate was the sizing? Item seemed a little smaller than I visualized by the description
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. decent quality for the money
- Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? yes
this leather backpack is actual better that i had expected it to be considering the price! i have been shopping for a leather backpack for some time but i couldn't bring myself to spend the money of the more costly versions at local retailers . . .the leather is soft but highly durable . . . it is spacious and provides outside pockets which help for those immediate needed or frequently used items we all carry with us . . .clearly this bag is spacious enough for a laptop and text books for a student, or the mounts of "accessories" every mom carries . . .the product is well made and durable . . . the only thing worth commenting on that is not as i would like are the straps have buckles which are ok . . . and they seem durable enough . . . but i don't think they would have been my first choice if i got to pick . . . (that's why only 4 stars)i love this bag . . . and so will you!
I carefully read the info about all the backpacks available at Overstock, and found exactly what I needed. It is a real leather, the color is exactly as on the picture - bold brown. No zip on top, which is good. My previous backpack had a zip, it broke after couple years. If you use your purce quite often and sometimes try to put inside a lot, it is better to get this style with a cord and a cover. People, please read the size information when you buy backpacks. This is not appropriate pack for your college books, it's a city purse, for i-pad, phone, cosmetics, camera, breakfast... It has a lot of space for little things we need, just enough. I traveled to Mexico with it, and it served me well. I was looking for brown color, and for some reason only black was available for the acceptable price. All other cute brown backpacks are twice more expensive. This backpack is not too big, not too small, it is stylish, goes well with all my yoga clothes, actually, with everything. High hill boots, sport shoes, flip-flops, love it.
I purchased the leather backpack because I was going on a trip to visit family. I really liked the backpack because I could hang it with its straps and my hands were free to handle other things. The zipper in the back is very convenient because you don't have to open the whole bag to get something fast. I also liked the two small side zipper compartments, they came in handy when I was on my trip. I recommend this bag to whomever wants to travel hassle free.
Purchased this handbag based on the good reviews it got, and I am satisfied with the handbag. Plus points: * Very roomy and convenient for carrying a lot of stuff. It should be very convenient to hold passport+tickets during international travel (along with other stuff like paperbacks). * Seems to be durable. (I have been using only for a month, so don't really know yet). * Zipper access from back to main compartment, hence no need to keep opening the top. Minus points: * No inner compartments like traditional handbags. * Doesnt look as great as the picture. (Maybe the brown bag looks better, I got the black colour and while I like it, it is as great as the picture).
This bag was the anwer to my current dilema. I needed a bag that was roomy and stylish, this is it. It has tons of room and easy to carry. The simplicity of the style goes with everything in my closet. If you want a roomy bag, with style and simplicity this is the bag for you.
Love the backpack! Have used it every day for 2 years before the side cabling has started to poke through at the bottom. The main part of the backpack is still in great shape. Recommend putting leather protector on the purse before first use to prolong the life. I'm buying a second one today!
I was very pleased with the size, although it would be great to have separate pockets. The leather seems to get nicks in it very easily, although over-all it seems to be really thick and smells like leather. Over-all for the price, it's not bad.
I ordered and and sent this merchandise to my Granddaughter; she likes it. As the backpack was intended as a gift, I wrote a very important NOTE to her which was not forwarded. It is very disappointing to me that you ask for a comment to attach to the gift, and then do not fulfill the promise. Rosemarie Papke
When I ordered this backpack, I had envisioned it serving as a real day-pack on my trip to Japan, carrying all the things I might need for a day of sightseeing in warm weather and probable rain. Well, when it arrived, I was very disappointed to discover that it lacked the capacity for that activity, and also, lacked any sort of interior organization --- only one pocket to separate some small items from others. I ended up keeping the backpack for normal use in my daily life, and bought a second, larger one for my trip. The leather is soft and pleasant to the touch, and the color is a rich brown that will go with many things.
I like it that it looks really classy. I can fit my Ipad and other travel essentials. The only item I couldn't fit in was my travel pillow. I wish the outside pocket was wide enough to hold my Passport holder. Other than that, it's a nice bag.
