Love this backpack. It is well constructed, beautiful, and super soft. The leather is very supple, yet thick and strong. The whole thing is very chic, the hardware blending beautifully with the overall design. I was especially pleased to find a large pocket on the back of the pack (I don't think this was noted in the description), as I bought it for an overseas trip and needed a secure pocket for documents, etc. Great find!!! It is everything it claims to be. Buy!
