December 8, 2012 - I feel pretty disappointed. Bag is not durable at all unfortunately. Binder and books punched holes in it after less than 3 months. If you have a light load (as in largish handbag size), and don't walk out in the rain, you might like this bag. Otherwise, no way!

August 16, 2012 - ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE. THREW IT IN THE GARBAGE!!
