It worked great for that and has held up well to her very heavy contents after a few months of use. This is a little flimsy and a little smaller than I expected, but I actually wanted it to be a thinner material so I could sew on patches for my daughter.
Single ladies, take note!. Quality cool purse! Because of it's shape, it fits so much more than it looks. It is quality material and looks great with casual clothes as well as with work attire. Got few compliments in the first week of carrying it! PS. DEFINITELY guys notice this purse more than women.
Great for plane travel and walking around the city, storing whatever I needed for the day (water bottle, extra socks, book, snacks), and it still feels small!. I bought this for a one-week trip abroad, and wanted to carry my tablet, book, and misc items. It was the perfect size, pretty robust, and the various handles/straps which I initially thought might be a nuisance came in super handy.
It also came with a handle attachment to turn it into a longer handled bag but I'm on the shorter side so the bag interferes with my walking so I took it off and it's great without it. I would have like the leather to have firmer lining to hold it's shape but it's fine and still a great bag. I am happy. Very nice bag that can go well with anything. It is large and spacious and the handles are big enough to use on your shoulders.
I love it! Its the perfect size! The material is pretty good, and you're able to fit quite a bit of stuff.
