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

    I've used this bag almost every day for about a year and a half and am wondering if I should get rid of all of my other purses. I am not gentle with my things, and this beautiful bag has held up to all the abuse I've thrown at it going to and from work, traveling, stuffing it under airplane seats, and often overfilling it with all the stuff I seem to find myself carrying. It holds more than it looks to me like it should be able to. I love that the main compartment and the one outside pocket zip closed; I have to go through a security checkpoint at work and never worry about important things spilling out when the bag tumbles along the conveyor belt through the x-ray machine. Occasionally, I wish there were just one outside pocket that I didn't have to open the flap to reach, but I've gotten pretty good at reaching under the flap w/o unstrapping it to get that boarding pass or whatever it is that I don't want to hold in my hand but want quick access to. So far, I've had none of the durability problems a few others have reported. (Did I mention I'm hard on my things?) I love the patina the leather has developed and the unpretentious functionality of this bag. It's one of my very favorite things.

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

        I buy lots of bags (ask my husband) and find that the fancier name on a bag doesn't necessarily mean quality. This bag is perfect. Adjustable strap, plenty of room, zippered compartments and a nice quality of leather. I cant say enough about how I love this bag. Bought for fall/winter but started using sooner to "break it in" so it looks a little worn. Just wish they had in black..........cause I would buy another one in a heartbeat. First time I have ordered leather products from Duluth..........and would do it again without a second thought.

          I love this bag! I can easily use it as a crossbody or a backpack. The only thing I don't love about this bag is the front strap. It looks good but is not convenient to slide through the loop.

              I had been looking for a shoulder bag that converts easily to a backpack. This one is designed simply and intelligently. It converts from backpack to shoulder strap in seconds by simply pulling the strap. You don't need to clip and unclip straps like most of the other bags I found.

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

              I am disappointed with the fact that the lining stitching did not hold up. The divided section started coming unstitched almost immediately and the leather trim attached to the lining is no longer attached because the fabric frayed.

                I carry this bag everywhere! It is roomy without being too large. I especially like the ease of conversion to a backpack. It is so helpful when shopping and my hands are full. It's a classic yet trendy style. The leather appears to be wearing well although I've only had it for a short time.

                  I love this bag! It's the perfect size for all that I need to carry. I needed to downsize the things in my purse and this bag is just what I needed. I love the long strap so that I can be hands free, or use it as a backpack. The compartments are perfect for just what I need, including my tablet. It's really cute, and practical. The quality is great and I know that it will last a lifetime! Plus, it has that great leather smell! I look forward to years of use with this Messenger Bag! I highly recommend to anyone who needs a great quality bag for daily use.

                  I loved this bag when I got it, but the longer I own it the less I love it. I always have trouble picking it up with the handle and usually end up grabbbing it by the strap (to close the bag). Having a black interior makes it hard to find small items in the main compartment.

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

                    I've been using this for a few weeks now, and it was ALMOST perfect for me. I wondered if the flap/strap on the front would be annoying to me and it was. But I bought some leather glue (Bish Tear Mender) to glue it down, and now it's PERFECT!

                    I love that the big compartments zip shut for added protection. I also love that it can be worn 3 ways--over the shoulder, cross-body, or as a backpack. So versatile for so many different activities!

                    The bag is roomier than I expected. I tend to over-pack, and so it's big enough for my items, but forces me to downsize a bit, but still pack what I absolutely need.

                    The leather is soft and a bit floppy, which I like. It's heavenly to the touch!
