The bag is gorgeous no doubt about it. I thought I finally found something stylish to tote my stuff in. I was a little worried that the top didn't zip shut the whole bag - especially since I sometimes get caught in the rain. But I figured I would risk in anyways. The problem? This is a heavy bag to begin with and if you put a book and a computer in it it gets heavy. And the straps are so thin they dig in and it's painful. I wish I hadn't used it because now it's too late to return :/
I searched forever to find a stylish laptop bag that would hold my 15" MacBook so I was excited to get this bag. But when it arrived I was disappointed. The bag is very heavy when empty and once you start adding a laptop and accessories it is REALLY heavy.
The other issue I had is that the straps are just too short and too skinny. It was difficult to get it over my shoulder and too heavy to carry on my arm like a tote. The leather is also very stiff.
It is a a beautiful bag but just didn't cut it for me. When I spend this much on a bag I want to love it and unfortunately I just didn't!
