Love this tote so much that I got a second one. The leather is heavy and supple. The only thing I would change is the handle. It starts out as a strap where it's attached to the bag, but then after a couple of inches it's folded in half and becomes quite narrow. I wish they had left it in strap form. The narrow handle is ok with a coat under it, but I'm worried that it will start digging into my shoulder once the weather warms up and I have lighter clothing on to pad it.
