I kept delaying on purchasing this bag because I was not sure whether I would like it and if it would hold up to the level of usage that I put my bags through. I purchased this bag to serve as a briefcase and purse when I travel. This is the first time that I have used it and so far it is holding up quite well. The bag is extremely stylish and goes with any outfit. I took my bag all the way to a trip to the Taj Majal in India and it held up and I looked quite stylish. I didn't have to worry about pick pockets because of the zipper and buckle combination closure. If you travel frequently then this is a must have for your wardrobe. I also like the fact that it has the option to pull the bottom straps to a higher buckle so it shortens the bag to carry more like a purse. If you want subtle leather then this is not the bag for you. The leather is a bit on the stiff side, but this is good for me because it helps the bag maintain its structure when you are carrying a lot of items. The only reason that I did not give it five stars is beacuse I haven't carried it long enough to give comment on overall long term durability. Which is important to me. Good luck to you shopping and I hop you enjoy this bag as much as I have.
