          This messenger bag is the right shape and color. It's capacious, well-made, handsome and can be used as a back pack or slung over the shoulder. It will work when she walks, rides or cycles to the lab. Best of all, it's exactly what she wanted and needed and she loves it!

            Have neck pain issues so it helps protect my neck by evenly distributing weight when I wear it as a backpack.

              Carry my tablet, love the pockets with zipper closures that keep items secure. The leather is top quality and can't be purchased elseware for that price. Sturdy bag with straps that adjust to size needed. Love the casual style and have received many compliments.

              Comments about Duluth Trading Women's Lifetime Leather Convertible Messenger:

              I had been looking at this bag for a while, as I wanted a classic looking leather backpack for going into the city that would be secure on the train (no bucket backpacks for me, too easy to get a hand into them), but wasn't big and bulky. Just large enough for my phone, cosmetic bag, small notebook, small wallet, and a few rolled up shopping toes. I don't like grommets, spangles, fringe, anything bedazzled on my bags. I like clean lines and high quality leather.

              This top flap bag is nearly perfect. It holds everything nicely without having trouble closing up or looking lumpy. The raw leather is medium weight and good quality. It has a top zip under the flap, securing contents in a busy train station. I initially bought the cognac color, but it was too yellow for my taste and I exchanged it for the brown, which is rich and lovely.

              Now to its drawbacks, which are design flaws I find annoying, but not enough to return the bag. There is no top handle on the bag, so when you reach for it, you're going to grab it by a strap. But, when in backpack mode, there is nothing to secure the straps in that position, so you end up pulling a long strap and suddenly you have a dangling bag. This is annoying and could have been avoided by putting a brass button to secure the straps into position. Conversely, a handle could have been stitched to the top of the bag so that you can pick the bag up by the handle. I would have liked both!

              Secondly, as others have mentioned, because the bag is made of raw leather, the interior pockets are add ons stitched to the leather and hanging freely. That's going to put a lot of stress on the stitching when the pockets are used, so I can see how people are ended up with ripped pockets. Plus, the fabric feels really cheap, a stiff, synthetic material that feel plastic-y and hard against the hand (not really what you want to touch when reaching into your lovely leather bag). A nice plain canvas would have been a much better choice (preferably in a light color so that you can actually see the interior contents of your bag).

              I plan on taking it in to a shoe/luggage repair place and having the interior pockets replaced, but that's going to tack on added cost to this bag. I think it's worth it, as the leather, styling, shape, and size are exactly what I want, but it means I'm not going to use the bag right out of the box.

                  When I opened the package, there was the lovely smell of quality leather! This bag is made of beautiful, soft leather. The staps are easily adjustable for shoulder, cross body, or backpack options. I was pleasantly surprised that the inside is lined and has pockets for organizing stuff. My 9" tablet fints nicely. Thanks Duluth Trading for another quality item!
