I really just think I got the lemon. I bought this bag for a recent out of the country trip. The idea of an over the shoulder/backpack bag sounded great. When it arrived there were threads that needed to be trimmed and the leather smell was so strong I had to leave it outside on my front porch for for several days. It fit great in my suitcase but the first time I used it, the zipper broke and the bag was useless.
