    Same Problem

    By HRH

        Best Uses

          I ordered the messenger bag in spite of the reviews. They were right. Within a week, I had the strap slip off the post that holds it and fall to the ground. Even though I knew this might be an issue, I figured I could have someone who works with leather fix it if I loved the bag, but I didn't love it. The leather is very supple. That makes it too floppy for my taste. It was hard to keep it open to look for items within. The sides just flop in. Packaged it up today to send back. I've ordered a different bag.

          Couldn't avoid the strap issue

          By Cate

          from Louisville, KY

          Pros

          • Ample pockets
          • BEAUTIFUL
          • High-quality leather
          • Patina
          • Roomy

          Cons

          • Strap
          • Swivel Clip

          Best Uses

            I'm just so sad! I bought this bag in anticipation of frequent air travel for business. When it arrived, I fell in love right away, the leather was gorgeous, it smelled rich and the construction was amazing. I happily packed it up and took it to the park with my kids on multiple occasions, loved it, got lots of compliments on how well it suited me.

            My first business trip arrived and I happily packed up my bag and strode into the airport. I was just so thrilled with it! My first problem came as I was going through security. A lack of outside pockets meant I had to open the bag over and over to get out documents, etc. Additionally, the clip swivels around. I found myself groping at the clip repeatedly when trying to open it with one hand.

            Well, I figured I could live with it because it's just so pretty and well-made otherwise. And then I started packing things for another upcoming trip and, yup, the strap is dysfunctional. I chalked previous reviews up to user error, but that's just not the case. I'm terrified of having my bag catapult to the ground in a busy airport, so I'll be trying another Duluth bag. If Duluth ever fixes this issue, I'd be sure to repurchase.

            This is the second leather bag I have purchased from Duluth Trading, The first was smaller and I use it all the time, but I have always wanted the messenger bag. Both bags just get better and better with use. I always get asked "where did you get that bag!" you should notice an increase in sales in leather goods............

              • Travel

              This bag has finally converted me to carrying a "purse." It's elegant, and useful. It has carried many field guides, binoculars, knitting, books, dog leashes ... you name it. It is easy to keep keys in sight with a clip. There are useful pockets and a zippered pocket. This really is a lovely bag. I've tried so many others ... none have worked as well as this one.

              HUGE DESIGN FLAW

                    This is the worst designed strap I have ever seen. I had it for two weeks and it kept falling off my shoulder. Until I read the reviews, I assumed it was an isolated problem. Now I am having trouble even exchanging the item for the Leather Portfolio Brief, that has a proper buckle strap it appears....still on hold and very close to canceling the entire order and never ordering again.

                    Strap Problems

                    By Tanya

                    from Chesapeake Bay Country

                    I cannot believe this strap is still an issue! My bag barely made it 6 months before the strap went south and the bag started falling off - this was 2 years ago. I never use it.

                      This was a very expensive purchase my college freshmen daughter. She's unhappy with the bag. It's breaking in the strap. Hoping to get a return without an added expense to either of us. We had to ship it 2nd day air to get it before she left so hoping customer service will help us out.

                        While I can see that the strap maybe a failure area I've had the bag for 3 months without issue. Love that I don't freak when it gets dinged or marked as it just adds to the character.

                        Strap does not stay together

                        By Laura

                        from Knoxville, TN

                        Others must have this problem! I want to love the bag, it looks good and it's so roomy and uncomplicated. But the strap is not functional....it comes apart ALL the time. The hole gets stretched from regular use (i.e. i only have a few pens, my phone, a manilla folder and my padfolio in the bag...with room for more) and BAM the button pops out of the hole and my bag hits the ground. I have to constantly walk with my thumb on the button to make sure it is not about to pop out. I tried switching to different holes - not helpful. I'm scared to carry my computer in it b/c the bag will crash the concrete. I have had the bag for about 5 months now and I give up, I'm sending it back. Thank the Lord for the No Bull Guarantee, or else I would be out some serious cash

                        • Stitching is coming apart
                        • Strap Is Not Well Made

                        Best Uses

                          I love the look of this bag. I was excited to find a bag that seemed durable for oversees travel and for grad school. Before I slam it - I still love the bag, I just don't care for the fact that I have had to tape the strap together so that the strap does not fall apart. I also do not love the fact that the stitching is now coming apart where the strap meets the bag. My plan, to save this bag that I love, is to take it to a leather shop to have the strap sewn together (not allowing for strap adjustment) and to reinforce the loose stitching. I bought the bag in April - I do cram books, highlighters and my small computer into the bag, but I do think that the bag was made for this sort of activity. Once I have the bag fixed, I would recommend it to a friend.
