I love the color (dark burgundy), which goes with just about everything I own. I bought this tote as a carry-on for plane travel. It wears well, is very roomy, and has two large side pockets, one on each side of the bag. It is also zippered at the top of the bag, something I had to have because open totes are a security risk - too easy for someone to reach in and take something. The tote is sturdy - I had it packed full for my last trip - and has worn well and is sturdy. It appears to be constructed of quality leather and is also neatly lined. I love it!
Received the tote bag, first off I thought the packaging of the tote itself was wonderful, and am very impressed with the quality of the leather. Lots of storage compartments. It's a gift for a teacher and I'm sure she'll be using it for a long time.
I've been searching for a GREAT carry on, but sadly this isn't it. It's a sturdy nylon bag, only has one top zipper and too small to use as an airline carryon. While the nylon is lightweight, the straps are very heavy and can't be removed. Not even a great bag for weekends or overnights because the one zipper still does't provide enough opening to carry a towel. I planned to return it, but the shipping cost was almost as much as the full purchase price. I've made some fine purchases through Overstock, but this tote bag will end up being a gift for a young person. If in the market, I suggest you keep looking and don't settle until the item meets your needs.
