The product arrived in record time even at the holiday season. The quality of both the leather and the construction were flawless. I liked how the compartments were arranged. It would hold a cell phone securely without making it difficult to get to. I did however not measure it out to determine it's overall size. It is enormous. It's not a backpack purse, which was the search I typed in. It's a backpack. It is much too elegant leather to take hiking but I'm sure it's been done. Great product, just too big for my need.

The product looks as it shows at overstock. It is made very well. I'm a bigger guy and don't have the issues with the straps. This is the second product by Piel I have purchased from overstock and am pleased with the products and service.

I like this backpack so well, I'm buying a second one. It is as stylish as a fine leather shoulder bag, yet completely functional as a roomy backpack with three zipper compartments--enabling the wearer to keep valuables away from pickpockets.. Before this, I've always felt I had to leave my backpack at home if going out to dinner or the theater. This one is great for almost all occasions, yet it isn't too small, as so many of the "fashionable" packs turn out to be. A terrific pack.

I needed to transition out of a tote for work as my shoulder has been giving me problems. I walk about 25 minutes from the train to my office and, though I tried to change positions, I was really getting my body out of balance by carrying a one sided bag. I didn't want an ugly backpack either though and this absolutely fits the bill. Nice leather and the large is the perfect size. Just the right amount of pockets and it even has a zipper in the side so you can put your wallet in the bottom of the big compartment so you don't have to worry about anyone getting it from the top, but then it's easy to access if you need it. Great value for the price.

I got this bag as a present after reading reviews (black bag). It looks and feels durable. It would fit a small travel pillow, a sweater, wallet and a notebook. However, I was hoping that the leather would be a bit softer and lighter. Overall, it is a good looking bag and expands as needed. The zippers are well made. It is a bit pricy but a good present. It would be great if there was a handle on the top and more ways for adjustments and room for a water battle.

I did a lot of research before buying a new backpack for college. I wanted something large, leather, and comfortable. This backpack looks great, the leather is soft & fine, it only gets better looking the more you use it. All the zippers and seams are strong (I've already packed about twenty pounds of books in there & didn't even use the expandable feature). You could fit soo much in this pack, but it doesn't look bulky at all. I badly wanted to give this backpack 5 stars. I plan to use it for as long as it can hold it - which I think will be many years. However, like everyone has said, the straps are a little difficult. You may have to add new holes if you want it up higher on your back, but the bigger issue is the tops of the straps (that you can't adjust) are attached on the backside of the backpack, not on top. Therefore, it looks droopy and sags off your back. Because of this, it is not as comfortable as other packs, which is a shame cause everything else about it looks so great.

This is a useful leather backpack, suitable for business or school use. The pouches are useful and the expansion zip is handy. The leather is not very thick but it will certainly give years of use under moderate conditions. I would not recommend it for hiking or for someone tough on their gear. As commented by other buyers, the straps needed new holes for the buckles, as the straps come too long for normal wear, but I was able to do this at home with a leather punch. Good value for money.

I was hesitant about this one because of the low price -- skeptical about quality of the leather and workmanship. I have been very pleasantly surprised. It's beautifully/smartly designed, is made of good, sturdy leather and seems well made. Size is perfect. My laptop fits in nicely, but it's not too big. Looks great and fits nicely on my back.

Really nice backpack. Excellent value considering the high quality of the leather, the size of the bag, and the low cost. I love the design of the bag -- enough separate compartments to organize a bit, but not so many you can't remember where anything is. The bag is large enough to use daily for commuting to work, but never feels cumbersome on my back. The leather is soft and the bag seems well made. I'm very happy with this backpack.

I bought this for my wife because she said she wanted a "grown up" backpack to take to work. She uses it daily and has not mentioned any problems.with the quality of construction or anything else. So if she's happy, I'm happy.

This is a fabulous backpack. I bought it for 3-month trip to Europe. After doing extensive research, and extensive online shopping, I finally decided on this bag. Although I didn't want to spend the money it costed, I now know it was well worth every penny. The leather is incredibly high quality, and it has endured much over the trip. I get compliments everywhere I go. It's beautiful, function, and lightweight. I like that it is large enough and padded enough to hold my MacBook Pro. It has enough pockets to be functional (and a water-bottle side pocket- VERY convenient), but not so many to be confusing and leave you unzipping 84 compartments to find something. I highly recommend this bag, and as always, Overstock's customer service was fabulous. I know this is a bag I will be using for many years to come, and I think it's going to last me through my whole college career.

I had read all of the reviews for this bag and the quality is great but just as others had warned, there are not enough holes to shorten the straps to a length that is comfortable for me. I will have to make more holes for the straps to be tightened, but over all this is a large bag with lots of room for all of my travel gear, including my laptop. The photo is deceiving in the fact that the bag is actually wider than the pictured item. The pouches are the same and there is even an extra zipper to allow for a few more inches of space. Over all this was an awesome purchase, the only reason it won't get 5 stars from me is due to the fact I will have to have this item altered to fit.

Very Well made. The expandable feature is a must have for me, I would not like the backpack without it since it would not hold as much. The price at Overstock was the best I could find. Although the leather is soft and good looking now, it should get better with age. Lastly, the only Con would be the need for additional strap holes to make the backpack fit higher on the back, like other reviewers have mentioned. I made my own set of additional holes with a leather punch.

I was very excited to find this backpack at Overstock as it was over $200 on the leather sites. The color is beautiful and the leather supple and without any defects. I am very very pleased with this product.

This is a great backpack but it comes with one con. The straps were adjustable but once you wear it around a lot you feel the weight of the backpack and the things in the backpack weighing heavily on your shoulders and it causes much. My only request would be to able to adjust the straps so it would be more comfortable

I just used this bag to travel around France. It was the perfect size when site-seeing around Paris and other cities/towns.

I do allot of film work which requires dragging my laptop, my cell, several subtle costume changes, cosmetics, scripts, ipod, etc with me for the day. This backpack accommodates everything beautifully. and is so good looking I can often get away with using it as a prop on set. Yeah, the strap holes are in the wrong place, but easily rectified, and it looks like a million bucks and seems to be durable as all get out. .

This backpack/purse was exactly what I wanted. Once the backpack softened up the magnetic closures worked as they should. I have gotten lots of compliments and refer people to Overstock to purchase this backpack

This is a good quality bag. Have purchased Piel leather products in tne past, very satisfied with quality of leather and the finish of the products. Good competitive pricing, excellent order and delivery services from Overstock.com.
