Colombia isn't just famous for coffee. The Vacquetta Leather Collection from Le Donne Leather Company is manufactured using Colombian Vacquetta leather. This leather is known for its durability and the rich, natural patina it develops with continued use.
PROS: It appears very durable. It is leather & the color is nice.
CONS: Durability is to be determined, the dimensions are not quite as stated. It was almost 1/2 inch shorter in depth if it had been true it would have been perfect. As it was I had to squeeze my things in. Because it is leather I'm hoping it will stretch, time will tell.

PROS: I have been looking for a backpack style purse to use since it's easier for me to carry. I have a 15 month old son and between carrying him, a diaper bag, a pocketbook/purse, etc I was getting frustrated b/c nothing stays on your shoulder (did I mention I live in a 3rd floor apartment!) With using a backpack style pocketbook/purse, it's much easier for me to carry it on my back and not worry so much that it's going to keep falling off my shoulder. The quality is very good... seems very well made. The leather is very soft and appears pretty durable. I did find it a tad bit expensive though but overall a really well made and great backpack for daily use.
CONS: I so wish it was just a little bigger.... maybe just 2 inches wider! I use a big wallet and have some other longer type items I carry (make up bag, etc) and it does not fit well inside the main compartment b/c it's just not wide enough. Also the inside zip compartment & outside compartments would most likely be a little bigger/wider if the entire thing was 2 inches wider which would then fit other essentials I need to carry w/ me much easier as well.
