I have this bag in red. The leather is colorful and supple and the bag is very roomy.I would not recommend this bag to a friend simply because the handles are too short to be worn on the shoulder....and the constant "clicking" noise the metal gold end caps on the braded rope weaving is very annoying. I would LOVE to have this bag in green, but always back off when I think about these two issues.Overall this bag is a good value - I get many, many compliments when I carry it, but after a day or so I'm putting it back in the closet.
I have owned many very nice purses. Brahmin, Dooney, Michael Kors, Gucci brands. This American West is an excellent bag. I receive so many Compliments on this bag. Many more than the others. I Love the quality. Looking forward to adding to the collection. I have my girlfriend loving the quality of this brand. Wearing them too
The leather on this bag is really soft and the size is great. I liked that it has a zipper on top and many outside pockets. There is a key ring inside the bag that cleverly detaches for quick removal of keys. Sadly the outside pockets were too small for my phone. The zippers have the label "APC" which apparently stands for American Procurement Co. In a test run, the bag was large enough to accommodate file folders with papers, a book, a small lunch box, wallet, phone, and some makeup. The one major weak point that made me decide to return the bag is that there is a seam in the middle of both handles that only has a few stitches holding them together. Once the bag was full and on my shoulder, I could see the seam splitting exposing the internal cord of the rolled handles which didn't bode well.
