Happy with my Bag

Customer service is incredible. fast and efficient.
The quality of my bag is very good, stitches look like handmade and leather is one of those that will probably last forever. Totally worth it.

Mastery in the industry makes the bag look like it is handmade
When the courier arrived it looked somewhat heavy to me
But when I carried her on my back I did not feel her weight

The quality of materials seems to be fairly high for this price point

Just got this bag, so initial impressions only. The quality of materials seems to be fairly high for this price point. The leather, stitching, and strap attachments seem to be rugged enough for heavy use and neglect. Im hard on my stuff more by nature than intent, so will be testing the previous statement soon :) The conversion from backpack to shoulder-slung/carry is straightforward, but not something that you would be able to accomplish in ten seconds. I like that the unused straps stow away out of snaggable range. The only thing that I dont care for in this process is the opened zippers for the in-use straps. Its not a big deal, and I dont know how to easily work around that design, but its an open pocket.
Inside the bag is laid out reasonably well. My biggest complaint in here is the velcro retaining straps on some of the nooks and crannies. If this bag lasts as well as it looks like it will, the velcro will be un-velcrod well before the rest of the bag is wore out. I would have liked to see some sort of magnetic claspy thing or perhaps snaps or buttons, but thats a minor quibble. The only real complaint regarding the main compartment is that it doesnt open as wide as Id like. Between the less-flexible-than-cloth leather and a zipper that doesnt go more than two-thirds around the compartment, Ive got to kinda pull the bag open to peer inside. This will no doubt improve as the bag begins to see more use.
Overall, this bag is, if anything, more than Id hoped for when purchasing it at this point. If something changes will update.

I just love this bag.

I just love this bag. I had a leather backpack before but it just couldn't hold enough. With the extra large opening on this bag I can fit several books, my laptop, and my notebook. The messenger to backpack conversion is extremely useful / practical. Before I had to switch between my rainy day bag and my messenger bag and my backpack when i had a lot of books. Now everything goes in here and that is it. I love it so much I already bought it a rain cover because I plan to use it all the time.

Crazy horse leather is actually a cow leather. You may find this answer is too short, so we would like to give you more detail about this question.

Crazy horse leather also referred to as saddle leather is made by applying, a kind of wax to a full grain leather surface that has been buffed and smoothed out. The leather has been treated to look and feel aged while retaining its toughness. The more you use it, the better and more unique it looks.

Crazy horse leather is made by applying a special kind of wax to a full grain cow leather surface that has been smoothed out. Through the application of the wax, plays a very distinctive role in the uniqueness of crazy horse leather. It will cause small changes to the material's shape and appearance. This gives it a unique retro, vintage look which ages beautifully over time.
Simply wax itself. Wax is highly resistant to water and other liquids. So, when applied to leather it protects the leather fibers far better than that of any other substance used on leather today. This allows the crazy horse leather to withstand much of what is an issue for most other types of leather. It doesn't stain fabrics or clothing. Because of this, it is the ideal choice of leather for making vintage style leather bags. Also, every crazy horse leather bags are unique due to the this manufacturing process. It feels really great to think that you have a unique product with you.
As we mentioned before, each bag is unique due to special wax and manufacturing. This application makes every bag distinctive. They are durable and strong. Wax itself protects the leather from water or moisture-related damages. The wax strengthens the leather fibers to the point that when the fibers are rubbed or scratched the natural leather color changes a shade or two, without immediately reversing back.

Through wear, naturally, the crazy horse leather will become full of these scratches. The rubbed and scratched areas that show the changes in shades of color, are what reflects the so loved antique and vintage appearance.
