COMMENTS:

I had searched for a real leather messenger bag and thought that I had found 'the one' when I saw this item at a Duluth Trading Company store. I walk a half mile to work and back everyday and was looking for something durable, roomy and that was also a cross body. It was exactly what I was looking for....until I used it for a few months. The fastener on the strap is a joke. Why there isn't a real buckle on something that is meant to be carried is beyond my comprehension. If you put anything with weight to it (ex: books, a laptop, etc.) it comes undone. Furthermore, the metal clasp that holds the front flap closed also is of poor quality. The metal clasp has actually stretched out to render it useless. I am very dissatisfied with the poor design of this product. They advertise it to be 'lifetime leather' but I have owned this bag for less than a year and have dealing with issues since a few months after purchase. I did email the company and received a generic message advising that I could return it. I would try that, but they do not offer anything of a similar style or size that I feel would work for what I need. And after all the trouble with this bag, I would hesitate to get another bag from them for fear of the same quality issues.

      COMMENTS:

      I really like this bag -- and continue to use it almost daily. However, seeing other reviews, I must mention that the peg and hole strap DOES NOT WORK. I found this out wile on a job interview, unfortunately. The strap kept coming unfastened until finally the man who was interviewing finally extracted the metal ring from his key chain and used it to make the strap stay fastened. How annoying and embarrassing! When I got home I immediately took it to the neighborhood shoe repair and they permanently stiched the strap in place at my desired length. Of course it no longer can be adjusted. Please redesign this feature (and perhaps add some more pockets). Otherwise it's a terrific bag.

      COMMENTS:

      Before this bag, I was using a Furla leather purse. It was the biggest piece of you-know-what I've ever lugged around with me. The leather was heavy and stiff, and the straps snapped not one, not two, but FIVE times under the combined weight of a 2014 13" MacBook Pro and a bi-fold wallet. After spending over $70.00 on repairs for this bag, I was done and in the market for a new one.

      I received this as a gift (which was amazing, for starters) and immediately started using it. I take it to work, school, and as a carry-all around town. My only complaint is the buckle mechanism--this bag uses a button stud instead of a traditional buckle to fasten its adjustable strap, and while walking around it will occasionally come undone. I only had a notebook and my portfolio in there, and I worry it could come undone and drop the bag again if I was carrying a laptop or something heavier. It;s only happened twice since I've started using it, and I figure as I break it in, the leather will hold itself on the stud better.

      Apart from that, this bag is made out of an extremely beautiful and high-quality full-grain leather(I have the cognac rendition--it looks exactly as it did online) with a durable high poly weave fabric partial lining (thank god--those sissy satin linings always look terrible after a month or so). The metal details are understated and timeless, and the bag itself is very soft. Overall, I would recommend this to anyone who is in the market for a good leather bag that's both durable and timelessly good-looking.
