    COMMENTS:

    Beautiful leather, very stylish...best thing going for the bag is the quality of the material and the ability to transition from a cross body to a backpack.

    Limitations: the main strap that closes the bag prohibits accessing items easily--if the bag only had one more pocket, perhaps on the back side to slip things in like a cell phone or keys (or glasses) so you don't have to undo the strap from the slot--because due to the leather, it doesn't easily slide in/out of the loop. What if the strap was on a lobster claw type mechanism instead? I think things are subtle design flaws that keep this bag from being the best ever.

    Cons

      COMMENTS:

      I wasn't sure about the backpack design, but it's great. The leather aroma is tantlizing. The purse is classic with simple lines. I really love the cognac color, a rich tan.
      I read other reviews complaining about the bad smell and orange color. I did NOT fine either of these complaints to be true for me.
      My husband encouraged me to purchase it (20% off sale) because I had longingly looked at these bags since Christmas. I'm so glad I pulled the trigger.
      Happy, happy, happy!

        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!
