After looking for a backpack that also looked nice as a purse, I settled on this one. It holds everything I need it to without looking too big and bulky. The interior is one big space with a good size zipper pocket against the inside back wall. there are also two zipper pockets on the sides (that I keep my phone, iPod and keys in) and a good size front pocket. Everything gets evenly distributed. It's heavy for a purse, but once it's on my back, it's not bad. It didn't occur to me until after I got it that it being leather starts it off weighing 4 pounds empty. It's something to consider, but it's very beautiful - soft leather - and I love it.
This is my third or fourth backpack that I've purchased here. I needed something a bit larger, although I probably could have pulled it off with a medium. This is a daily use for me I keep/carry everything in it I might or might not need, you just never know. I'd rather have a bit more than not enough and for me, always on the go it's perfect!!

Overall, I like the backpack a lot. I ordered it for college, and it's roomy enough for my laptop, a couple books, a notebook, and other random stuff I have to carry around all day. It looks nice and is a high quality leather. My only complaint (why it got 4 instead of 5 stars) is that the straps are kind of thin, and are therefore uncomfortable if the bag is too heavy or if you have to carry it around for long periods of time. But since I mostly just carry it around campus between classes it works just fine. :)
My husband likes this gift but one of the zipper pulls broke as soon as he started using it.The metal actually broke. While it's a very large backpack and seemingly of an otherwise decent quality, when any part breaks on a brand new product, to me that makes it not worth the money I spent.
I bought this for my daughter 4 years ago and it is still in great condition. She is very rough with things like this and this bag has stood the test of time. I bought it for her as a Jr. in high school I believe, and she still uses it every day at college.
For this price, you are getting a substantial bag with many pockets. The only draw back is that the closure is plastic. It would have been nice if it was metal. Unfortunately the closure got caught in a door and broke in half. I had to take to shop to get it replaced. It's the only reason I gave it 4 stars.
LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT!! It's perfect. Real leather, very soft and bigger and thicker than I was expecting, for the price. Heavy duty nylon zippers on 3 outside pockets, very trim, not bulky. Nylon trim inside with leather draw sting on top. Adjustable leather straps are nylon lined for ease in adjusting. I'm ordering more for Christmas gift! It's not padded but will hold big laptop easy with lots of room for stuff, or use as a weekend getaway bag. This looks and feels like a very expensive bag.
