I have been looking for the perfect backpack, and I found it with this bag. It has multiple openings & pockets for taking all my necessities with me everyday and yet it is not too big and heavy to carry. Love the handle on top of the bag, if I don’t want to wear it as a backpack. The leather is soft, not stiff, but doesn’t seem flimsy. I ordered the turquoise bag, and that is the one thing that I didn’t like as I expected a more blue tint and my bag reads more as a green, than blue. That being said, I do like the way the color is a patina-like combination of green & brown. It’s a unique color finish, and I do like that. I would buy this bag again, but I expect it to last for a long tim.
