      Comments about Duluth Trading Women's Lifetime Leather Convertible Messenger:

      This is an amazing, amazing, amazing bag. After about a week of going back and forth about whether or not I wanted to buy this, I finally decided to buy based on others' reviews.

      I will be using this as my everyday bag, but it will also come in handy when I travel. This bag is beautiful. I decided on the red color and could not be happier with my choice. Everything that I need on a daily basis will fit nicely inside. I am so glad that this bag is a "lifetime" purchase, and that it will not get scratched and that it basically wears better with age. The pictures on the website do not do it justice; the bag is much deeper on the interior and I feel that it is definitely more spacious on the inside. Also, you can convert it to an over-the-shoulder style or a backpack in order to go hands-free which is convenient should the need arise. I would definitely and without restriction purchase another one of these. Thank you Duluth Trading Company for finally getting it right!

      Gorgeous & Durable!

          Comments about Duluth Trading Women's Lifetime Leather Convertible Messenger:

          I've been in search for the perfect bag. . . large enough to hold everything I need for the day's activities, sturdy, durable & secure with good zippers, and all that in an attractive style. I have been using it for a couple of months now, and I am not exaggerating when I tell you that I get compliments on this bag almost every day. I bought the red leather. And yes, it smells like leather (which was a fault posted by another customer), but after a few weeks of use, that mellowed out quite a bit. The grain is beautiful. I am quite certain that this bag will be with me for a *very* long time.

            Used to haul all the "necessaries" on the plane and during day trips while on vacation. Room for tablets, camera, sunglasses, smartphone, wallet, snacks, a small umbrella, and a few cosmetics!

              I have seen similar items that repeatedly cost twice as much! or even more-amazing the quality of the leather and design is just great. One friend asked me after noticing it said wow-that is a beauty-how much did you spend? 300.00? 400.00. My answer Nope not even close.

                Comments about Duluth Trading Women's Lifetime Leather Convertible Messenger:

                I purchased this bag for a trip to several National parks. It was great for carrying stuff I needed during the flights and was a great all-around handbag during the trip. It also became an amazing packpack while hiking the parks. I carried water, packable jackets, snacks, and other necessities on my back and hardly knew it was there. It is very versatile, roomy, and has enough pockets to make it easy to organize. The only change I would make is a more finished edge on the front flap would look nice and make the flap a bit more rigid. Overall I love it.

                • Typical Purse

                Comments about Duluth Trading Women's Lifetime Leather Convertible Messenger:

                I wanted this covetable bag for daily use and it carried the basics great, but not enough room for my large tablet. The convertible straps were a nice feature that were easy to use and functional. Noticed some color bleed onto a light t-shirt since I had the red one. I only used it lightly for week until the inside pocket lining unraveled from the leather bias tape completely! So I had to return it for refund. Might by another one soon, but for now I am using a Duluth messenger bag that I already had.

                • Good size
                • Nice overall look

                Cons

                • Front Fastening Difficult
                • Needs more structure

                Best Uses

                • Overall Utility Bag

                Comments about Duluth Trading Women's Lifetime Leather Convertible Messenger:

                This is a beautiful bag, but it has some kinks that need to be worked out. First, it needs a little more structure. It looks lovely empty but even a few items, like a wallet, checkbook, and an eyeglass case, reduce it to a lump of leather. Things sink to the bottom and look lumpy. They also get a little lost as the leather above folds in above them. The front fastening is useless. It's too soft and takes two hands to thread through the loop. The shoulder strap also needs some work. It's a little thin and uncomfortable, and if one doesn't have the length just right, it ends up bending bag in two. It might work better in the backpack mode, but certainly not for slinging across one's shoulder with one side of the backpack strap. It ends up acting as a drawstring instead of supporting the bag. I would like this better as, perhaps, a mid-size bag with a bit more structure to it (and a different front opening). The leather is superb though.

                  Comments about Duluth Trading Women's Lifetime Leather Convertible Messenger:

                  Absolutely love it!
                  I feel like it is verryyy easy to convert from cross-body to backpack which is a feature i very much appreciate.
                  I am very happy with the size- it doesn't feel like a big bag geting in the way of things everyday- but also fits in ample amount of stuff when required.
                  The look is absolutely classic- great quality leather- love the tan colour and i can tell that it'll wither beautifully too.
