Rated 1 out of 5 by ScooterRider This Purchase was a Complete Fiasco
Let me start off by saying this is what I refer to as a Sofa King experience.
I am sofa king annoyed. The current picture of this bag on the website is not what you will receive. This bag (from the pic) looks like it is made up of soft and smooth leather. What I received was very heavily pebbled leather and dark in color. Please update your pic. As it stands now, this is bait and switch.

Rated 1 out of 5 by JV135 Stitching coming apart after limited use
This is a very nice looking bag, but sadly the stitching on one of the loops that holds the strap began coming apart. I probably used this bag around 30 times, and never carried more than a few books in it at a time. I thought this bag would last a long time, but it did not.

Rated 3 out of 5 by PaloAltoPete slightly misleading
The actual color is much lighter than depicted.
The front straps along edges are fine but not really easy to use in a hurry while the center strap along the front of the bag is a little awkward to use.
I adjusted the shoulder strap so that I carry the bag slightly higher on my hip bone/tail bone but resulting extra tail of the adjustable strap hangs freely---a good design modification would have had an small extra loop to hold the extra tail (similar to a belt). Overall it is a satisfactory bag since it functions well and is aesthetically pleasing but this utility design and the small details of the bag could use some modification.

Rated 1 out of 5 by erockster Beautiful bag, however
I purchased this bag, and unfortunately I am not too happy with the way this bag was advertised. I had to remove the two straps that keep the bag closed. On top of that I had to put the shoulder strap on the shortest hole because I am only 5'3, once I did that, I had a huge extension of useless leather strap to deal with. The center buckle that keeps the bag closed also gave me problems, with time the leather stretches and you cannot keep the bag fastened, so I had to tie a rubber band around the strap so that leather hole could be smaller and thus stay fastened. The only inconvenient part now is that I have misplaced the center strap, and now the bag can only be closed using the two straps that wrap around the whole bag.

The picture on the site is very different from how it actually looks. The leather looks like alligator skin. On the website, the leather looks much smoother than it actually is in-person. This was not what I was looking for in a bag and I decided to return it.
