    COMMENTS:

    I love this bag, it is well made and very reasonable and just the right size for me. I was so impressed I will be buying more leather bags from Duluth. Many people were impressed with it and surprised it was from Duluth, thought Duluth just sold underwear!

      COMMENTS:

      I fell for this bag as soon as I saw it. Finally, a professional looking bag that wasn't too dressy, would last well, and wasn't a tote (I hate the look of totes). I'm not about frills, and the price is hard to beat! But I think I know why, now.

      I loved it the first few weeks. But I quickly realized that I'll likely need another, maybe sooner than later. It just isn't quite big enough, and definitely not as big as I expected.

      The trapezoidal shape is more exaggerated than it looks from the pictures online. This is a lot of wasted space, from my experience. Not sure if others have a bunch of squishy/triangular things in their business bags to take up that space, but I sure don't.

      Looking back at the pictures it's more obvious that the bottom is just a single seam, not a double with space in the middle. This makes it look super bulgy when it's full, and makes it so it doesn't stand upright on it's own (kind of a drag to see a high quality bag lying on its side).

      Additionally, if the sides went straight down to the bottom, and didn't taper, there would likely still be room for other things after I put a notebook and a planner/novel (side by side) in the laptop pocket. Right now, it's a pretty tight fit.

      Same story goes for the top edge - it tapers to the top, so if you fill the middle (with, say, a medium width textbook) the top zipper won't be able to close over it. The bag is kinda shaped like a pizza roll, or maybe a pillow.

      As a very organized person, I do love that there are interior pockets for necessities, and larger exterior pockets that aren't too large that you have to shuffle to find things.

      Essentially, if the side panels weren't trapezoidal, and there was a true gusset instead of a tapered single seam, I would never need another bag again, and it would be a true lifetime bag.

      As it is, I'll likely need another as I transition from student to professional in a few years.

        I bought this for my daughter, at her request, since I've gotten her started on the Duluth Addiction. She loves it! I had it shipped to me along with another purchase, so that I could inspect it before giving it to her. I'm assuming that all the adjectives I listed are true, at least they are from my observation. I know she was excited to get the bag!

          COMMENTS:

          I have spent at least a few months searching for the perfect bag. I had an old inexpensive one that was falling apart, and I knew I wanted to replace it with a high-quality leather bag that I would use all the time. I needed it to be large enough to hold my iPad and a pad of paper or a few file folders, for work, yet no larger, so I could use it as an everyday bag/purse. Everything I saw was either too expensive, or too large (or too small), didn't have pockets, or was too frilly to look like a serious business bag. Even after I purchased it and waited for it to arrive in the mail, I was convinced that the perfect bag wasn't out there, and that I'd end up returning it. I was wrong! It came, and I know I'm being silly, but it was love at first sight. It has a zippered outside pocket where I can put my oversized iPhone so I can find it quickly, a padded inside area that's perfect for the iPad, smaller pockets for pens, glasses, my wallet, etc., and lots of open room for all the stuff I schlep around during the day. And yet it's not a huge bag! I also like that it has both a shoulder strap and handles, so I have a choice of how to carry it. It's sturdily constructed, and I love the look of the natural leather. Oh! And I was forever digging through the bottom of my old bag to locate my car keys. This bag has a clip for my keys that's just perfect. :-) I'm very, very happy with this purchase!!!!
