This is a great bag/backpack. The leather smell is amazing, the leather itself is very soft and supple. This is the perfect size to fit my lunch, extra shoes, umbrella, kindle, and a few other things that I need to take with me to commute to work. The back is secure and the zipper pocket that I use for my kindle is up against my back, so I am not worried about anyone being able to steal it while in transit (Metra and CTA). It is not oversized and it fits me well (I am 5' 6.5). It is adjustable enough that I can wear it comfortably with a winter coat or in the summer. There is a lot of strap length but it can easily be tucked or left to hand and is ridiculously long. This bag does not pull down and hit me really low on my back like so many others. I can actually get to work without my back killing me. Great purchase would recommend. The other plus is that the bag is stylish and does not look like a kids backpack!
OK...I have to say that I am knocked out right now. I looked at leather backpacks in the $XXX-XXX range...of similar size and then I came across this one and I was a little skeptical as with a coupon code it was $XX.XX! ....So I was not expecting much...
It is think soft leather,, even the straps are thick, with incredible hardware...There is a real luxury acetate lining and the zippers and pouches are well placed and more than I need!.... For what I paid...I am BLOWN AWAY....
(no...I was not paid to write this ad!!! LOL!)
I am giving this a poor rating only because its not a backpack like the title says. My nephew wanted a leather backpack for college and we both loved the leather on this bag. However, it is NOT a backpack. There are slots for the one strap, but its impossible to make it into a pack. Unfortunately, I returned it and purchased another leather backpack. This bag is great as a messenger or crossover bag, but not a backpack.
I've been using my leather backpack for about a month now and really like it. I didn't give it 5 stars because I'm still not sure how well the thin leather will hold up over time. It's just the right size for my purposes and the compartments are easy to get to and well-located. I like the fact that it can be used as a shoulder bag as well as a backpack.
