I bought this for my daughter 4 years ago and it is still in great condition. She is very rough with things like this and this bag has stood the test of time. I bought it for her as a Jr. in high school I believe, and she still uses it every day at college.
For this price, you are getting a substantial bag with many pockets. The only draw back is that the closure is plastic. It would have been nice if it was metal. Unfortunately the closure got caught in a door and broke in half. I had to take to shop to get it replaced. It's the only reason I gave it 4 stars.
LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT!! It's perfect. Real leather, very soft and bigger and thicker than I was expecting, for the price. Heavy duty nylon zippers on 3 outside pockets, very trim, not bulky. Nylon trim inside with leather draw sting on top. Adjustable leather straps are nylon lined for ease in adjusting. I'm ordering more for Christmas gift! It's not padded but will hold big laptop easy with lots of room for stuff, or use as a weekend getaway bag. This looks and feels like a very expensive bag.
This bag is beautiful soft, but rugged leather. I got deep brown color and it looks rich. It has lots of compartments and is very roomy. I gave it as a gift and it was appreciated. Yes, it is a little heavier, but it's real leather.You probably couldn't get a bag like this made of plastic for the Overstock price!
