I have this backpack because the Jumbo Leather backpack I bought from Amerileather through Overstock ripped within a few months. The drawstring just ripped in half. So, after seeing it was sold out and Overstock (sadly) couldn't fix the drawstring, I exchanged it for this one. This backpack is much smaller and although I do prefer the Jumbo backpack this style can hold many items. I can fit 4 notebooks, a pair of heeled boots, a small book, a drink, and an umbrella in it. If I'm lucky I may be able to squeeze a light jacket or a heavy scarf in there as well. I'm still sort of waiting for this backpack to fall apart, but the only problems I have now are the buckles. They come undone. The buckles you see on the backpack can be unbuckled and adjusted to size and for the most part, they unbuckle themselves. One time, the front buckle completely fell off and my friend had to tell me it was on the floor. It's not just the front buckle either, the pocket buckles do as well. This backpack is pretty worthless without the buckles so I'm a bit unhappy that they can come undone so easily because if I'm not paying attention, I could lose them. I also had a problem with the length of the straps. I went to a shoe store and had them punch extra holes into the leather because it just wasn't tight enough and the backpack was uncomfortable because it hang down my back. I give this a 4 because the design is really cute, but I don't think this brand really takes quality into account. Stylish design, yes, but they need to focus more on having the backpacks hold up to time.

I bought this pack to be used as a 72 hour emergency pack for my wife. She had been using a nylon duffle but had a hard time carrying it. We selected this pack because it appeared to be light weight, water resistant with outside pockets. The sholder straps are adjustable and the waist and chest straps help to stablize the sholder straps. I would like to see about 4-5 more small out side pockets. This pack is stored in the trunck of oour car for emergency use.

this leather backpack is actual better that i had expected it to be considering the price! i have been shopping for a leather backpack for some time but i couldn't bring myself to spend the money of the more costly versions at local retailers . . .the leather is soft but highly durable . . . it is spacious and provides outside pockets which help for those immediate needed or frequently used items we all carry with us . . .clearly this bag is spacious enough for a laptop and text books for a student, or the mounts of "accessories" every mom carries . . .the product is well made and durable . . . the only thing worth commenting on that is not as i would like are the straps have buckles which are ok . . . and they seem durable enough . . . but i don't think they would have been my first choice if i got to pick . . . (that's why only 4 stars)i love this bag . . . and so will you!

I brought this backpack for my 9 y/o son. The backpack was very sturdy, and was able to store a lot of his books. When he turned 10, we put away the backpack as he want something w/o wheels. The new back pack only lasted 4 months before the strap broke, so now he goes back to using his Rolling Backpack. It may not look as 'cool' as a strap backpack, but it is a lot more durable and cause less backpain. Would recommend this.

I like that this case has a laptop section, but the inside section of fabric starts to pull away from the zipper with normal use. I've never gotten one of these to last more than about 4 months. I use it to pull my stuff M-F about 2 miles a day. I wish it was more durable.

I purchased 4 to use as backpacks for a quadriplegic who is in a power chair. I purchase these and when they came in i ordered 4 more so I would be set for several years. He uses 2 bags on the back of his chair; one for his hygiene supplies and the other for straws, napkins, wallet, etc. We purchased the same size backpacks made out of nylon 5 years ago. Those were a great size, but they do NOT compare to these leather bags. These look classy compared the the vinyl bags and the leather will last several years per bag. We are set for 4 years!

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.

Bought two of these (one in red for my son and pink plaid for my daughter) My 6 year old and 4 year old loved them. I could put snacks for the plane, "surprises" crayons, paper, books, etc. easy to roll around, handle adjusts. I won't lock in the shorter position, but it didn't seem to bother them if it ended up long. They both loved being able to have their stuff with them and go through the airport, it wasn't heavy like a back back (we just rolled them) and so easy to roll. You can use it as a back pack, and it has a great cover flap so that the wheels (which would naturally get dirty from rolling) are protected from your clothing touching them if you use it as a back pack - avoiding getting your shirt dirty. But they are so great as rollers, and so much lighter than what my standard backpack felt like on my back - I am now getting one for myself too. The back packs stay upright well (so we used them to store the books and art supplies while at grandma's to save on getting them spread all over the house. The packs also have a handle right on top, when you just want to shift the pack a bit. Fit perfectly under the airplane seat in front of us (which is what you want so you can get items out ("mommy I want a snack, mommy, i want my crayons and coloring book, mommy I want my teddy bear..."). Only one large pocket and one smaller, which I thought would be a negative, but in the end I could find things more quickly than I could in my big, multi-pocket backpack. Very Happy with this purchase - and such a great price!!

The backpack is okay. I wished there was more room for more books. It fits about maybe 3-4 small books. With those in there, it doesn't fit my big binder. The laptop compartment took about half the space. I do like the extra pockets on the sides and in the front center pocket, there's pencil holders and stuff. Inside is all orange and the handle is not chrome. It's black. Thanks!
