"Bag functioned decently during a 17 day trip overseas. Strap design limited ability to use over either shoulder, as I like moving it around, and the zipper on the main section was only one way, instead of being able to open in either direction. Will continue to use despite these issues."
"At first I thought this was the absolute best bag for my needs, until I received it in the mail. Crappy velcro strap for phone across the chest is a definite NO. Leather scratches up fairly easily, which is not bad in itself if you want the bag to acquire character but this is definitely NOT good as a book bag for university. Decent for day trips, balances fairly well, but I am going to go look for something else. Especially after I plowed another $20 into replacing the crap velcro with button clasps at my own expense (thank you, Hobby Lobby leatherworking section). Unless you absolutely need leather, try something else. That mesh bottle holder on the side (who knows what the designers were thinking) that is far too small only detracts from the aesthetics anyhow."
