I bought this bag for my wife to use for toting her school stuff for teaching to school everyday and for traveling. It's an awesome bag and she also loves it. It's very well made and very durable. The straps convert to make it into a backpack which is very handy. My wife hasn't been in a torrential downpour yet with it so I can't attest to its' waterproofness but it is definitely water resistant in light rains. Fjallraven makes quality products and I would definitely recommend this to anyone.
I got this for my girlfriend as a christmas gift and she thinks it is the coolest back pack shes ever seen. At first it looks like a normal purse until you tug on one of the straps and it turns into a backpack. The material seems tough as nails and she loves the color.
So, I've taken this bag out twice, once for a baseball game, and once for a small trip.-For the baseball game, it was great for holding bottle water and snacks, the best part was it being able to convert to a backpack when climbing stadium steps. A friend even spilled beer in and on the bag, which was sad, but all I had to do was rinse it out, and it dried overnight! Good as new.-The trip actually involved flying, and it was great at the airport, not to mention, it was so easy to carry around the city. I love how I can carry it as a tote or backpack!! Ingenious!! Great for holding my jacket, and all the goodies I picked up throughout the day.
I bought 2 of these because I couldn't decide on the color, so dark garnet and ochre it is! The tote itself isn't too large, but I like that. Seriously...stop carrying e v e r y t h I n g you own in your bag...simplify your life. I can carry a notebook, iPad, small pencil case, lip balm, wallet, and keys in this baby with room to spare. It holds more than you think. The only problem you'll have is deciding on the color :) I like that it has long straps that enable it to convert into a backpack and the leather straps are a great design choice. Excellent quality leather too. The G-1000 fabric is awesome. Love this bag.
Nice and simple design but very sturdy. Works great taking outdoors or just packing stuff along to bring with you day to day. I use it to lug around my laptop and school stuff. Especially great when its raining since everything stays pretty dry. A little more spendy but it seems like it will last for a while so it's worth it. I got it in the yellow and love it.
