Haven't used the backpack yet, but it is nicer than I expected. The leather appears to be of good quality and it is light and has a lot of pockets. I plan to do some urban hiking over New Year's and it easily holds my 15" laptop computer, but an inside strap would be a nice feature. Enough room for a day's worth of clothes or a heavy jacket.
I use it as a work bag, and it is big enough to fit my lunch, as well as stacks of papers and a book or two. The straps are very comfortable, and it is easy to carry on my five mile walk each way. My favorite part is that is has several, very accessible pockets for all of my different work items. It is perfect!
My husband & I just got back from Disneyland, where I brought along the bag, Heavy sometimes but it was roomy for alot of stuff. We had our video & digital cameras, maps, souvenirs & some snacks. If we go back, I will definitely take it again,
This is a really good day pack for traveling in Europe. The quality is high so you won't be mistaken for an American backpacker. Europeans have a higher standard for public dress than Americans and some fine hotels, restaurants and other venues won't even let you in looking like a backpacker. This has the elegance that Europeans themselves use. It also beats those ugly fanny packs that mark you as someone who has traveled just enough to know they need something to carry their stuff in but not enough to use something appropriate. This day pack is designed perfectly for the European experience with the right amount of pockets and space; and the two water bottle holders are perfect, since public drinking fountains in Europe are scarce.
The backpack is everything they said it was. It looks very good. The leather feels very smooth and looks very good. It has a lot of compartments- two places for your drinks and plenty of room to carry your gym stuff or anything you may need for a couple of days travel. I use it when I go to the gym on my bike. I will also be taking it to Europe so we have a convenient place to carry the stuff we need during the day. This is an excellent quality bag that looks very professional. It is just the right size.
This is the best, littlest, biggest backpack I've ever had. The leather is great quality and the straps are strong. I've always had a big problem with the straps on leather backpacks breaking or ripping, but I don't think this backpack will be a problem at all. The backpack has been rained on a couple of times, but no problem!!! Everything stayed dry inside. The zippers work well and overall, this product is fantastic!
I needed something to take a laptop to work on my Motorcycle. The bag is small and well made but a standard Dell laptop just fits. A little padding & a large baggie & you're ready for anything. Fits on the luggage rack too. Just exactly what I wanted. The black leather is great.
I got this bag to carry my important items for my wedding in October. I was surprised at the quality of the bag. I also love the smell of the leather. It is not as heavy as some other leather bags that I purchased in the past. I love this bag!!!!!!!!!
Look at the price of the nylon backpacks. This pack is made with nice soft top notch leather. Many pockets & well made. Use it on a daily basis, consider this a steal at the price. Only drawback, it does weigh a pound more than a nylon backpack. I am willing to sacrifice the extra weight for SO MUCH STYLE. Great service from Overstock, and and an outstanding backpack!!!!
I just received this backpack and I'm absolutely delighted with it! I was not prepared for it to be as well-made as it is given the price. The leather is rich and supple, it has a number of compartments, ample space,and a really classy design. It'll be perfect for the trek I'm taking to Israel this Fall.
