The shipping time on this bag was long but it was worth the wait. The leather is heavy and durable with a suede finish. It is a roomy bag and I was able to pack five days worth of clothes and my computer in this bag for a recent trip. The bag is a little more masculine looking than it seems in the pictures but it is truely a wonderful travel bag.
I love this bag and have used it for several trips in and out of the country. I don't use the outside pockets because the clasps don't stay put but the rest of this bag is fantastic. Be aware that this bag comes as a light tan color and changes over time and use.
This bag is large, but not overwhelming, light and beautiful. I have not used it yet, but it seems durable and sturdy. Never paid this much for a bag, but I got so tired of buying cheap ones that would fall apart quickly. I am a mother of 4, so I will see how it holds up to the many things I put in my bag.
I just received my bag and it is all that I had hoped it would be. It is absolutely beautiful! It is so well made and like true artisan leather it will only improve with age. Small price to pay for a bag I will have this bag for the rest of my life.
