I have been looking for a backpack that I could use instead of a purse for over a year. This one is pretty close to perfect. I love the leather. I agree with the other reviewers that a top grip handle would be very convenient. If I'm picking it up to just go from house to car I just sling both handles over one shoulder. The only other complaint I have is that I would like to see a key leash so I could hook my keys for easier location. I'll never use it as a cross body because I have back problems and the weight of something hanging on just one side hurts my back. So far I'm happy with my bag. This is my first SAK bag and so far I'm not disappointed.

I never thought I'd live to see a perfect bag. This isn't it, but it's close. I *love* the backpack / shoulder combo concept, but it's not quite there yet. This needs a top handle for a quick pickup and move, and a better manor for switching from backpack to shoulder sack. Can I order extra straps? I'd like to get a few and mess around with them and see if I can come up with a better solution.

I really, really wanted to like this bag. Having a bag that easily converts from backpack to crossbody would be amazing. Unfortunately, this one just doesn't cut it. The straps have a leather piece that is supposed to keep the straps sort of even but after a short amount of time the leather softens to the point that they just slide back and forth, imagine a backpack with uneven straps and you'll know what I'm talking about. Also, the really big disappointment was the front snap. I bought the bag and 3 days later the front snap closure broke, rendering it totally impractical for me, it basically made it into a one compartment bag because the snap kept everything from falling out of the front pocket. Customer service was great and sent me a new bag but low-and-behold, the same thing happened with both the straps and the snap.
