I bought this bag because I need the size of it to carry my things -- but not a laptop. it's a nice bag all and all but it's lacking in side pockets. If it had a bigger pocket on the front, and more inside it would be almost perfect. The quality is what it is. It's not leather, but then again for this price what would you expect. I'm using it for now -- and will keep looking for the perfect pocketbook!
I have carried this bag to work with me every day for the past couple years. The stitching on the handle did come out on the first one after 2 years or so (I carry a heavy laptop in it, probably the reason) and I bought a new one. Same thing happened, but this time I had the stitching reinforced by a tailor and it's held up so far! The bag looks way more expensive than it is- still one of my favorite overstock purchases!
