I bought the bag to accomodate my daily commute from NJ to NYC. The leather is very rich and smells so leather. The size of the bag is the same as a regular backpack. There are two hidden pockets inside the bag and one pocket outside but at the back of the bag.
This handbag came in it's own fabric mesh bag like those very expensive shoes - none of which I own. The leather seems supple, the straps and hook loop are sturdy. There is plenty of room in this handbag which helps me carry a lot of stuff during the work week. I like the quality.......just wish it had feet to sit on.
If you are wondering whether or not to get it, I say get it. I am a working single parent and this handbag provides more than enough room to carry bills, stuff for the kids to work on etc. a thick planner, book to read.
The color and quality of the hardware is great.
I bought this to use for work, where I walk a couple blocks almost daily to attend various meetings. I needed a bag that was appropriate and easy to get things in and out of. This bag has pockets where I like them, and will carry lots of items (including a notebook computer, lunch, handouts, etc.) securely. I like the cinch closure for simple and secure fastening and the magnetic snaps are a nice feature. The shoulder straps are comfortable and it seems well made. The padded handle is good for a quick grab. The leather is soft, flexible, and not too heavy. I have the espresso, which is like the photo-a dark brown. As a previous reviewer said, the excess strap length is way too long for some reason. I haven't had it long enough to know how the seams will hold up with all the slinging over my back it is getting, but so far so good.
Love this backpack. It is well constructed, beautiful, and super soft. The leather is very supple, yet thick and strong. The whole thing is very chic, the hardware blending beautifully with the overall design. I was especially pleased to find a large pocket on the back of the pack (I don't think this was noted in the description), as I bought it for an overseas trip and needed a secure pocket for documents, etc.
Great find!!! It is everything it claims to be. Buy!
BUT the straps when you sinch it up to fit your back there are long straps that hang down makeing it look more like a school bag and i wanted it has a nice backpack purse like. i put velcro on the straps and tried keeping them strapped down. will have to do some more work on it with what i had, did not get to complete that task. but the straps hanging down look bad and there is no reason for them to be that long
Someone finally made a backpack that wears well even when I'm not riding my bike. It has room for my lunch and enough compartments for everything else. It's comfortable and sized perfectly. The snaps behind each buckle are amazingly secure. This is one great backpack/purse.
Love this backpack! Perfect for work. I like the various zipper pouches for storage. The straps are quite long, but necessary if you're a tall person. I'm 5'6" and they're a bit long. I may take it to my shoe cobbler and have them shortened. I love the strong leather smell, and so do some of my co-workers! When I open my locker, we all take a moment to enjoy the strong leather aroma!!!! The quality of the leather is very good and I'm certain I will be using this for years...and it will get better with age after it softens a little!
I love this backpack. I got it in the cream color, which is really attractive. It's perfect for summer. I originally wanted a backpack I could use as a purse. This is way too big for that, so I've been using it for work and weekend trips. It's really roomy. The leather is gorgeous and feels soft and supple. I don't get the criticisms about the strap. I tucked the end into the buckles and you don't even know it's there.
I have to say for what I paid for this backpack I thought it was going to be made of something other than leather but it wasn't. The backpack is all leather. It smells so good when you open the package. It is big enough to escape for the week-end, you can put all your essentials into this bag and use it as a carry-on. I fit a shirt, socks, make-up bag, hair supplies and shoes and still had room. Love, Love , Love this backpack.
