    • Casual

    Great style and excellent quality. I imagine having it for many many years. I also found the backpack to be comfortable even though it leaves my shoulders pink when the load is heavy. Still, this bag is fantastic! Also, some people complained about no key pocket but that can easily be solved with andcarabiner. I clip my keys right to the metal strap hoop.

    Beautiful bag

    By Rz

    Pros

      Cons

        Best Uses

          I got this bag about a week ago and have been using it everyday since. It is a great bag. I could smell the leather through the box! I am pretty picky about my bags...no excessive branding, no tassels, no shiny hardware... Just a nice minimal bag that won't go out of style. It is extremely soft, but feels sturdy. Easy to convert from shoulder bag to backpack. You could really take this thing anywhere. I love it!

          Color bleeds

          By Mich the Traveler

          from Chicagoland, IL

          Pros

            Cons

            • Color bleeds
            • Not Spacious Inside
            • Smells Bad

            Best Uses

              I purchased this bag for a trip to France and Italy, about three months before the vacation. Good thing, too, in that the odor wasn't of leather--it was like petroleum. I tried airing it out in an open area of my home for the ensuing three months, but the odor was still there when I used it on vacation.
              I packed it pretty full, but noticed it didn't hold as much as the outside dimensions led me to think. It's stiff, which exacerbates the space issue. Then, the worst drawback is that the color (dark red) rubbed off on my clothes. It washed off, but was still embarrassing during the trip.

              I love this bag!

              By Lynn W

              from Washington D.C.

              Pros

              • Easy to use
              • Versatile
              • Wears well

              Cons

                Best Uses

                • Everyday use
                • traveling

                I bought this bag originally because I couldn't decide between this one and the tote. When I got it, I thought the main zippered compartment would be too small and awkward to access. I was going to send it back. But then I thought I really should try using it first. I fell in love with it! I've used it every day since! The large compartment is easy to use. I keep my kindle in the tablet pocket. I've even put a folder in there. The exterior pocket is useful to keep my phone in as well as other papers or coupon books I need quick access to. The outside zipped pocket is great too. But the best feature is the versatility of the straps. I can use it extended like a typical purse. Then easily switch to the back pack. If I need to, I can adjust the straps and wear it as a cross body type of bag. Another great feature is, it doesn't dump the contents of my purse out like my other back pack style purses did in the past. A bonus is that the leather is so soft! The only draw back is the the center strap that goes through the loop to keep the flap down. It serves it purpose, I use it sometimes, but if it isn't in the loop, I grab it thinking it's the main strap. I've gotten better at reaching for the outer strap now!
                All in all I'm really please with this purse. I can't wait to travel with this bag.

                I would recommend this beautiful bag

                Pros

                • Beautiful Leather
                • Excellent Cratsmanship
                • nice sizing

                Cons

                • A little hard to open
                • Awkward to carry

                Best Uses

                • Book bag

                This bag is gorgeous and well made. Iit can be a backpack. When I tried to use it as an accessible purse I found it awkward to get in and out of. No other strap to really hold it other than the backpack straps. I was fumbling and frustrated. However, it is a beautiful bag. If you were going to use it as a book bag that you didn't need constant access in and out of its perfect. Other than that it is a little clumsy to handle. I sent it back because I knew it would not work but loved the beauty and quality of the craftsmanship.

                Fantastic bag!

                By Erin the Bag Enthusiast

                from Bedford, MA

                Verified Buyer

                Pros

                • Functional
                • Good size
                • Great style
                • Well Made

                Cons

                • Few Interior Pockets
                • Hard For Short Users

                Best Uses

                • Commuter bag
                • Everyday purse

                I purchased this bag to serve as my everyday purse/work bag. I was particularly intrigued by the messenger/backpack interchangeability, and it's a feature that I find myself using much more than I originally expected. It's so convenient to be able to just sling it on my back and have it out of the way without having to mess around with the strap. Great design feature! The materials and craftsmanship are top notch; it's a beautiful bag. It's a good size, enough for a typical purse load plus a tablet computer with keyboard and a half-sheet notebook. I can even fit an umbrella and a liter thermos bottle in along with everything else.

                The bag does come with a couple of cautionary notes. I'm a very short woman, and it wasn't easy to find a strap length that works for both backpack and messenger carry. As it is, a strap length that would let me carry it crossbody is FAR too long work as a backpack. I settled for a length that works for the backpack and lets me hang it off one shoulder. Secondly, the internal pockets offer inadequate organization if you tend to carry a lot of little bits and gadgets. I use an elastic grid to hold things like pens, jump drives, charging cables, ear buds, etc. Otherwise, this bag does suffer a little from leather-bucket syndrome.

                Overall, it's a great bag, and I'm very pleased with my purchase.

                      My wife is a "bag" lady. At least she has been for the 36 years we've been married. I saw this on the website and bought it for her. She loves it. The looks, the durability, the styling. She uses it all the time.

                          It handled well during a 2 week tour of Hawaii. The zipper failed, but Duluth stood behind their product!
