i am very picky about backpacks. i use them as diaper bags and hauling kid stuff around. this one has ample space but isnt too big. i can fit baby stuff, things for my 4 year old, and my wallet, phone, make up bag, etc. and there is still a little room. i plan to use it at disneyland in a couple of weeks. the leather is very supple - but not too much so, there is still some structure to the bag. it hangs nicely and feels good on the back - the straps are long but adjustable. if you like leather, backpacks, and want something that is medium size, you cant go wrong with this one!
Overall, I'm very satisfied with the purchase of this leather bag. It's durable and super stylish. Moreover, it's perfect for anyone in need of a versatile bag which goes along with any attire. However, the buckles which are attached to the bag are a bit loose, and one of them happened to fall off my bag in the first week since I had received it. I'm not too fond of the draw-string rucksack style of the bag since it does not protect the inside contents fully from the elements, hence I do not suggest you use this bag in heavy rain or snow. All of these issues aside, I doubt anyone can find such a great-looking bag for the price.
The backpack is stylish and doesn't look the the usual ones I am used to. I love all the pockets for my batteries and cords. One problem is that the straps are too long and there is no way to adjust them any shorter. Also, the magnetic snap that closes the main section doesn't always snap close, especially when the backpack isn't filled.
i get TONS of compliments the bag is sturdy but soft the dark brown is very fashionable and matches almost anything it is easily scratched but im a high school student so it was bound to happen. looks smaller but fits all my books good buy overall!
I ordered this backpack in the dark brown. The color was beautiful and looked more expensive than it was. I used the bag primarily for work in the beginning. I teach, so throwing in "extra" stuff is possible, plus I have both my hands free for my 4 year old. This backpack has also become my "Mom bag" since I have access to room and space for my stuff and his, and it looks way more stylish than carrying his Elmo bag around:) I loved purses at one time, but carrying one is silly since I have Mom stuff and my stuff to lug around, and with a 2nd baby on the way, this backpack will continue to get a lot of use! I love that it goes with all my nice shoes and boots too.
This is a great backpack. The dark brown leather looks expensive in person. It is not as dark as the picture its more of a rich dark brown which looks great. The backpack is not too heavy like other leather backpacks. It will fit a 15 inch laptop. I needed a mature looking backpack and this one fits into my wardrobe perfectly.
I purchased this backpack as a Christmas gift for my son who is 32 years old! He loved it as soon as he opened the gift and it was packed with his overnight wear when he left our house on Christmas Day. It seemed a little smaller than I hoped but my son is an urban kinda guy and thinks it is perfect for him. It certainly appears and smells like leather! I have ordered a number of items (glider chair and footstool, table-height stools) from OVERSTOCK.COM and have never been disappointed or needed to return anything. Couldn't be more satisfied!
Lovely leather and good size but I was disapointed that although it was described as having buckles infact these were for decoration only and both the top and pockets are held closed using a magnetic clip which can flap open and are not safe. Since the buckles are servicable I may get a shoemender to sew down the tabs and then use the buckles. Quite expensive by the time paid delivery of £xxx.
I can't attest to how well it holds up over time, because I've only had it a couple weeks, but I've gotten a ton of compliments on it so far. Wanted some a little less juvenile for law school and it fits the bill. Soft leather, nice color, sturdy enough to carry a couple very heavy books.
I have no complaints about the bag as a whole but I do highly doubt that it is real leather. First off, it is way too cheap to be and I wore it out in the rain and the water wiped right off like it would on plastic. I don't really care, but just letting those of you who do know. The bag is big, perfect for college; I can fit my laptop and all my books in there.
I absolutely love this backpack. I looked everywhere online for a leather backpack at a decent price, and this is the best I found by far! Very sturdy, beautiful leather, and holds all of my books plus more. I get tons of complements on it. The only thing is I really wanted the dark brown color, but only the light brown was in stock. Still a very pretty color though!
I was looking for a large leather backpack for school that wasn't too expensive or too small. This bag is the perfect bookbag I had in mind. I got the dark brown and it is very sleek and stylish. It fits all of my books perfectly with some room left to spare. If you are looking for a bag for school this is the one. It's not too expensive and will probley hold up for a long time. Other reviews have said that the stiching comes undone after a couple of uses, but i have not seen any sign of fraying or any damage with the stiching. The magnet buckels are in perfect working condintion and complete the bag. Hope this review is helpful to your decsion on wether or not to buy this leather bookbag! emmeypea123
