Bag performs very suitably and the size, compartments and durabiltiy are marvelous. Agree with some other comments that the coarse grain leather may be less than tops but expecting exceptionally smooth. polished leather at this modest price would be less than reasonable. It was anticipated that the white elastic strap might be unattractive and this proved true: It would be better in brown or black. However it was easily severed and replaced with the included adjustable black strap that provides over-the-shoulder or across-the-upper-body carrying capaiblity. Unless there is another product that is clearly way above and beyond this vying for placement, it is definitely worth keeping in the catalogue.
