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.
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
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.

I like the size, the quality of the leather and the comfort of this backpack. However, the zipper on the small outside pocket broke within one month. Not only was the workmanship poor in that it wasn't secured properly on the ends and came unsewed, but the zipper itself broke away from it's backing in the middle of the zipper. It has to be replaced, but since I am no longer under warranty, I will pay an additional *** for this work to be done. The problem with the straps mentioned in other reviews seems to have been rectified, and they can be adjusted freely now. I think it would be a good idea to put in an inside zippered pocket for safety -- to secure a wallet, for example. Just having an outside side zipper which enters into the main compartment doesn't secure your wallet. This backpack has potential, but needs better, smalle, stronger sewing, and re-enforcement on the ends, and would be improved by a zippered inside pocket.
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.
