After looking for a backpack that also looked nice as a purse, I settled on this one. It holds everything I need it to without looking too big and bulky. The interior is one big space with a good size zipper pocket against the inside back wall. there are also two zipper pockets on the sides (that I keep my phone, iPod and keys in) and a good size front pocket. Everything gets evenly distributed. It's heavy for a purse, but once it's on my back, it's not bad. It didn't occur to me until after I got it that it being leather starts it off weighing 4 pounds empty. It's something to consider, but it's very beautiful - soft leather - and I love it.
This is my third or fourth backpack that I've purchased here. I needed something a bit larger, although I probably could have pulled it off with a medium. This is a daily use for me I keep/carry everything in it I might or might not need, you just never know. I'd rather have a bit more than not enough and for me, always on the go it's perfect!!

Overall, I like the backpack a lot. I ordered it for college, and it's roomy enough for my laptop, a couple books, a notebook, and other random stuff I have to carry around all day. It looks nice and is a high quality leather. My only complaint (why it got 4 instead of 5 stars) is that the straps are kind of thin, and are therefore uncomfortable if the bag is too heavy or if you have to carry it around for long periods of time. But since I mostly just carry it around campus between classes it works just fine. :)
My husband likes this gift but one of the zipper pulls broke as soon as he started using it.The metal actually broke. While it's a very large backpack and seemingly of an otherwise decent quality, when any part breaks on a brand new product, to me that makes it not worth the money I spent.
Folks this isn't real leather. Its a OK bag as far as size, its able to hold a lot. The zips snag when you zip and unzip the pockets. I don't think it will last the test of time if your rough on your bags as I am. I'm returning this bag sadly. It certainly isn't worth the price I paid.
I received this backpack today and I'm very disappointed. If this is leather this is the cheapest looking leather I've ever seen. It also smells of chemicals, so right now it is in my garage until the odor disappears. I need a backpack and it looked great on the website, and many people gave such good reviews for it I ordered it immediately. It is nicely designed but the "leather" looks like a form of plastic to me. I have many leather bags but none of them look like this one after using them for many years. I am only keeping this one because I need one right now. I guess the price should tell that it is what it is!!!! Since it is called Amerileather, I guess I could call it Crappileather and advertise it as so. I have been using Overstock for many years but this is the first time I've been disappointed by the product.
I was looking for a good backpack for my commute and this was perfect. It has more than enough room and fits me comfortably. I' m a plus size woman so I was happy when trying it on it fit me comfortably with the straps. It is a larger backpack so it's true to size and has enough compartments to store my cell, subway pass, bus pass, etc. Overall great value and genuine leather. The weight is fair, it's not lightweight but not a problem for me. I'd recommend for sure.
I bought this and the smaller version. The quality is great, the craftsmanship is great, I was not expecting what I received for the price! I am NOT a "suitcase" kind of person and this pack fits everything I need for camping, hunting, traveling, whatever. Because I'm not a "purse" kind of person, I got the smaller one for everyday running around. The leather is thick, great quality, no blemishes, everything works as described. I can see both of these lasting me for at least 10 years if not more. I'm tough on my pack backs and the last one I replaced with these I had for 15 years, the leather on the bottom just got too thin to trust. Extremely happy with this purchase!
Nice backpack, too big for everyday use. Perfect for college students, high school, and traveling.

I purchased this as a birthday present for my 26 year old son who recently obtained his real estate license. He is not a fan of brief cases but this is a perfect alternative. Roomy as well as stylish.

I bought this back pack because my husband and I are going to be traveling a lot this summer and we can both use it. It was a bonus to find a zippered area that inside has pockets for your wallet, credit cards, pens etc. I don't plan on lugging around a purse this summer so this will be perfect! It's large enough that we can throw in extra tshirts and shorts for the both of us. I saw the reviews about the shoulder straps and I don't have a problem with them at all. Actually they are quite comfortable.
