there is no denying the quality of the leather this bag is made from. it is thick, strong and very supple. the bag looks amazing, the espresso color i chose is somewhat lighter and brighter than pictured, but i still preferred the brown. the one huge drawback is an obvious design flaw in the closure mechanism. there are small magnetic dots beneath the large buckles that do not hold the flaps closed as soon as the bag is lifted by the strap. i've tried adding neodymium (ultra strong) magnets but it still won't stay closed. i have decided that the real flaw is that the leather flaps are just not long enough to allow some slack when the bad is lifted. what a shame, i literally shopped for years for a new leather bag, and this one is gonna need some professional help to be of practical use.
My biggest complaint is with the handle. The handle broke in 6 weeks of owning this rolling backpack. I hand to super glue the piece back together and use electrical tape for extra support. I like the fabric and style. It's large enough for all my daughters belonging. The company needs to have a better handle on this item
