When Pan Am introduced the world to the jet age, the Pan Am bag was seen as more than just a carry-on; it was a proudly carried symbol that represented a once in a lifetime experience. With a Pan Am bag, people not only carried it, they wore it proudly. The Originals Collection pays homage to these classic icons of culture. The Innovator introduced us to the 60's and the jet age. Pan Am passengers from all over could be seen hitting the ground running with this bag thrown over their shoulder. From the Beatles to JFK, this bag was a Pan Am signature piece. With it's timeless shape and style, it was as great as a carry-all then as it is today; a true must-have for everyone!
PROS: It truly was an authentic Pan Am brand (vintage, but new if that makes sense) bag. The quality, workmanship and detail are fabulous. I love using it as a bookbag for some light notebooks. It sure does get looks and comments!
CONS: The material is a bit hard - wish it was a little softer, more pliable...I don't think it will soften though.

Price / Value
PROS: Its huge! Bigger than I could have imagined! I love it! I can cram at least 4 books in it, my wallet, calculator, and planner.
CONS: I feel like the strap could have been a little thicker for sturdiness because the bag can hold so much.

PROS: It's huge! I can fit anything in it and its very sturdy!
CONS: I loved everything about it. It would have been a nice bag to buy made of leather too though.
