I ordered this bag back in January, and it is now April. I waited to submit a review until I had owned / used this bag for a while to see how it held up and how I liked / didn't like it. Well I can honestly say that I think that I like this bag more than when I first purchased it. The bag was quite stiff when I first purchased it, and now it has softened nicely with time. The leather parts of the bag (the handle, and the trim) have started to develop a nice even patina. The look of the bag can be changed by cinching the side straps. Without stating the name of a higher end company, I think that Rioni rivals it's competitors in several ways, price (for sure, by $$$'s of dollars), quality, and most importantly functionality. This bag has a nice deep outside pocket that is perfect for keys, a cell phone, or anything that you want to keep handy. On the inside of the bag, there is another nice zippered pocket that holds a lot, and on the other side a cell phone pocket and 1 other pocket. I can tell you that I have loaded this bag with my wallet, makeup bag, cell phone, 2 sets of keys, small kindle, lotion, and a large water bottle and still had room in it. I would highly recommend this bag to anyone who wants the look of high end without paying the high end price. In today's economy, that is smart shopping.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Very comparable, what I expected
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Top quality, down to the stitching, the leather handles, the zippers, and everything else.
- How accurate was the sizing? Was a little bigger than I expected, but that has worked out to be alright.
