    This bag will only get better with age. My nephew is off to college with it and I am sure it will last him a life time. Upon opening the box he said it even had a wonderful leathery fragrance !

    The bag is very accommodating in pocketry... I would like for it to be less flimsy. It's more like a sack rather than a protective bag for your valuables while traveling.

    Best I have had - 5/7/2015
    By: from SC

    I have had my backpack for a couple of years now and it sees a lot of hard use. I carry a 15" lap top, an IPad and all the assorted things that go with them to and from work and meetings each day. The color has faded but just gives it a well worn look. The seams, zippers and pulls are holding up well and so no signs of wear..

    Not quite what I expected - 5/4/2015
    By: from NY, NY

    The backpack is too big and sloppy looking for business. Quality is good and the green/brown color is excellent. Unless the pack is full the looks are diminishing. Not happy.
