This backpack reminds me of the Love Child Hippie years. I was looking for a lighter weight sturdy backpack that would hold basic things you might carry in a purse. I carry a hardcover calendar/journal that measures about 8" by 12" and it fits in this bag. It really is cute ... I wouldn't call it classy looking but it looks and feels well built so I don't expect it to fall apart soon. The denim is dark blue and sturdy. The colorful pieces of leather are thick enough to stand up to use and normal inadvertent abuse. And for people who are concerned that it may have an odor - it doesn't smell like anything other than leather and you have to stick your nose right on it to smell it. The style is really is unique. It would be a clever way to use up the workroom scraps at a leather factory rather than throwing them in the trash or recycle bin. There are plenty of zippered storage areas and interior cloth hoops to secure other items. The lining looks well stitched and feels really satiny soft but it is sturdy fabric. The complimentary little leather coin purse could also hold spare sets of keys. I think it matches the picture and description well and I can't think of a negative thing to say about it. I like it. I think old and young could wear this backpack.
I could not tell from the online picture if this was all leather or not, and it was not. the other fabric is denim. I was a tad disappointed in that. It is unique in its features and appears to be well made. I think the price was fair to good. However, if you have a large laptop say 15.6 and up, and choose to carry other items and books or binders, it will be a very tight squeeze. It does have outside compartments as well which are pretty generous, and one in the back under the straps. The zippers are heavy duty. I have received many compliments on it plus I have found a way to make it work for me. This backpack is a keeper.
Very impressive backpack. It would be perfect for a student or like myself who needs it for outings when I don't feel like carrying my purse is necessary.
