    beautiful, well-crafted bag

    By Jessica

    Pros

    • Convertible
    • Great Color
    • Soft

      • Everyday bag

      Absolutely thrilled with this bag. From the gorgeous color, to the quality leather, I can't get enough. I can't wait to see how the leather changes over time. The straps are comfortable when worn as a backpack, as well as when worn as a cross-body. I have already gotten numerous compliments on it from my friends and coworkers, and I'm sending them all Duluth's way!

      Made it through Italy

      By Bag Lady

      from Newtown, PA

      • Right Amount Of Room

      This bag was fabulous for our 12 day trip through Italy. Our itinerary was very ambitious and so it was important to stay organized and well planned. I used the little zip pocket for necessities - bandaids, hand wipes, tissues, small sunscreen and lip gloss. The snap pocket held my wallet. The two inside open pockets are perfect for phone (camera) and sunglasses. The big internal pocket was plenty big enough for guide book, map, notebook, small purchases and a water bottle.. I used it mostly cross-body because I feel more secure that way, but it worked fine as a backpack too even though I am very short (5'1 somthing). We did a LOT of walking and stair climbing but even loaded the bag felt very comfortable.

      At first I mised the little grab handle that is usual for this type of bag and thought that the flap closure should have been magnetic rather than strap and loop. But, I got over both right away

      I'm very glad I ought this bag for this trip and I know I will continue to enjoy it.

      I would by this bag again

      By Lamatrudo

      from New Haven CT

      Pros

      • Great size

      Cons

        Best Uses

        • Everyday
        • Great for travel

        It took me a while to pick out a bag and I was not sure I would like the backpack but I took this into NYC for the day and on a day trip with my son. It was perfect. When I needed hands free the back pack feature was great. I also used it as a cross body. I thought the size would be a little small, but it was not. I was able to put all my stuff in, and I was able to easily find everything. Sometimes in a big bag I have to hunt for things. This bag is 2 thumbs up.

        • Casual

        Great style and excellent quality. I imagine having it for many many years. I also found the backpack to be comfortable even though it leaves my shoulders pink when the load is heavy. Still, this bag is fantastic! Also, some people complained about no key pocket but that can easily be solved with andcarabiner. I clip my keys right to the metal strap hoop.

        Beautiful bag

        By Rz

        from Santa Fe, nm

        Pros

          Cons

            Best Uses

              I got this bag about a week ago and have been using it everyday since. It is a great bag. I could smell the leather through the box! I am pretty picky about my bags...no excessive branding, no tassels, no shiny hardware... Just a nice minimal bag that won't go out of style. It is extremely soft, but feels sturdy. Easy to convert from shoulder bag to backpack. You could really take this thing anywhere. I love it!

              Color bleeds

              By Mich the Traveler

              from Chicagoland, IL

              Pros

                Cons

                • Color bleeds
                • Not Spacious Inside
                • Smells Bad

                Best Uses

                  I purchased this bag for a trip to France and Italy, about three months before the vacation. Good thing, too, in that the odor wasn't of leather--it was like petroleum. I tried airing it out in an open area of my home for the ensuing three months, but the odor was still there when I used it on vacation.
                  I packed it pretty full, but noticed it didn't hold as much as the outside dimensions led me to think. It's stiff, which exacerbates the space issue. Then, the worst drawback is that the color (dark red) rubbed off on my clothes. It washed off, but was still embarrassing during the trip.

                  I love this bag!

                  By Lynn W

                  from Washington D.C.

                  Pros

                  • Easy to use
                  • Versatile
                  • Wears well

                  Cons

                    Best Uses

                    • Everyday use
                    • traveling

                    I bought this bag originally because I couldn't decide between this one and the tote. When I got it, I thought the main zippered compartment would be too small and awkward to access. I was going to send it back. But then I thought I really should try using it first. I fell in love with it! I've used it every day since! The large compartment is easy to use. I keep my kindle in the tablet pocket. I've even put a folder in there. The exterior pocket is useful to keep my phone in as well as other papers or coupon books I need quick access to. The outside zipped pocket is great too. But the best feature is the versatility of the straps. I can use it extended like a typical purse. Then easily switch to the back pack. If I need to, I can adjust the straps and wear it as a cross body type of bag. Another great feature is, it doesn't dump the contents of my purse out like my other back pack style purses did in the past. A bonus is that the leather is so soft! The only draw back is the the center strap that goes through the loop to keep the flap down. It serves it purpose, I use it sometimes, but if it isn't in the loop, I grab it thinking it's the main strap. I've gotten better at reaching for the outer strap now!
                    All in all I'm really please with this purse. I can't wait to travel with this bag.

                    • Excellent Cratsmanship
                    • nice sizing

                    Cons

                    • A little hard to open
                    • Awkward to carry

                    Best Uses

                    • Book bag

                    This bag is gorgeous and well made. Iit can be a backpack. When I tried to use it as an accessible purse I found it awkward to get in and out of. No other strap to really hold it other than the backpack straps. I was fumbling and frustrated. However, it is a beautiful bag. If you were going to use it as a book bag that you didn't need constant access in and out of its perfect. Other than that it is a little clumsy to handle. I sent it back because I knew it would not work but loved the beauty and quality of the craftsmanship.
