Deluxe Book Bag

Product Review (submitted on March 16, 2013):

I've had this bag for a month now, and I just love it. I'm a function over form person, especially for bags, but this bag has ample amounts of both.

Pros:
It's made in the US!
It is really beautiful. Is and looks high-quality. I was afraid that it would be too masculine but it's not. The leather/canvas combo is handsome and well proportioned. The brass hardware is sturdy and attractive.
I love using canvas bags but I always holes on the bottom corners so I'm got this one specifically because it is reinforced with leather.
Spacious, holds a lot but doesn't feel bulky or too big even though I'm petite.
I'm tired of bags sliding off my shoulders. This one stays on!

Nothing wrong with the bag itself, but there are a few things that would have made it more functional for me: 1) a different strap adjuster and 2) side pockets. I'm unable to use the nice leather strap pad because because the bag's too long for me when the pad is centered on the strap, and there's no way for me to use the pad when the straps are on a "short person" setting. I usually take public transport at home and when I travel; a side pocket would be nice to hold a transit card, which you have take out multiple times in one journey.

For an ready-made bag, this is still great. Highly recommend!
