    COMMENTS:

    I love the exterior of this bag; the leather looks beautiful and durable. The interior pockets are nicely located, but one has already separated from its binding tape after just a month of not-quite daily use. So, the "lifetime leather" may be a valid claim, but the interior doesn't seem it was made to last. My husband bought the purse for me as a gift after many years of me buying inexpensive purses, so while I am happy on the whole with the bag's features, I am disappointed that a purse with what I consider a more premium price (even on sale!) is not as high quality as I had hoped. I am pleased with the convertible feature, from cross-body bag to small backpack when walking longer distances while carrying the bag. The "flap" feature does not interfere with regular use, as I feared it might.

    COMMENTS:

    I have been looking for a leather messenger bag for years, but I never found what I wanted in my price range. But then I ran across this oneonline at Duluth. I was so excited about receiving it, but when I open the package this horrific smell hit me in the face! It was a cross between a petroleum and fish smell. I have not yet carried it because I'm afraid the smell will offend or giv co-workers or innocent bystanders a headache. It gave me an instant headache. I have put it in my basement sealed up in a bag with baking soda because I love the look and feel of it. I have many leather jackets, bags, and shoes and have never experienced anything like this. It still smells after a month, but on nice days I leave it on my deck so hopefully it will eventually air out enough to carry it. Others in the reviews have mentioned this, but just a few. Bottom line ......It's a great looking bag, but a clothes pin should have been included in the purchase for your nose!

      COMMENTS:

      I was looking for a bag that would not only be large enough for the multitude of 'stuff' I seem to always end up putting in a bag but also be super practical and secure. This bag fulfills all my requirements as well as being soft, a gorgeous colour and the leather smell is divine. The 2 pockets underneath the flap which are a zip closure are perfect for secure travelling. The strap which allows you to wear the bag as a backpack or cross body bag/shoulder bag is extremely easy to convert and very handy. The quality of the leather, fittings, stitching etc is excellent and i'm sure will last for many years. I could not fault the customer service team either. I live in New Zealand and had numerous questions about the bag, shipping etc and all were answered quickly. My bag arrived 7 days after posting. I would definitely recommend the bag and the company, and i'm sure i will order again. Used everyday for about 3 weeks before writing this review.

          COMMENTS:

          Really nice bag - would prefer it a little bit wider to make it easier to access items inside which are packed a little tighter than preferred; height of bag is good. Quality of this leather is outstanding and the top zipper makes it safe to carry in the city. Haven't used as backpack but the strap being adjustable makes it easy to get the right length over the shoulder or even cross body if I don't have a heavy coat on. Glad I purchased and definitely worth the price paid.

          Lifetime Leather Convertible Messenger Bag switches from shoulder bag to backpack. Either way, the oiled leather will gain character with age.
