Customer reviewsAbsolutely Beautiful Workmanship
I read many reviews before buying this bag, but the majority of reviews were from persons who were extremely satisfied and happy with their purchase. Now, I can add another 5 stars to the Piel Leather review. Purchasing this bag was not only a suitable investment, it was a treasure to find a beautiful, solid, durable leather bag at an sensible, affordable price. I was still somewhat skeptical after reading the reviews so I did some research and found out that Piel has a website which tells the history of leather goods they ve been making for over 40 years. You don t get to make leather goods that long without perfecting your trade. With that said, the only thing I regret with this bag -- is not getting it shipped within 2 days. The anticipation nearly killed me. The quality of leather was superb. The bag s straps were quite sturdy and reinforced. It was said in some reviews that they were too long. The remedy for that is to take an ice pick, heat it up mark the hole on the leather strap once you are sure where you want to place an additional hole, and carefully slide the ice pick through. Problem solved. The side pocket for your cell phone was just the right size for my Blackberry. The 2 large front pockets keep everything I need in reach, right where I can find it. The leather is buttery soft. The lining of the bag and the craftmanship was in no way sloppy. In short, I love my bag--I love it It has replaced my pocketbook, and I do like the idea of having my hands free especially when walking long distances. I m sure that in time this leather bag will become more supple and soft as the leather breaks in and I hope to be able to write an additional review. This bag is a must have if you re looking for leather backpack that carries beauty and durability.
