PROS: I am blown away by the quality. It exceeded by very high hopes. I got the saddle, and it is a rich orangey tan/brown. It matches some of my other leather products. At first I purchased a CLAVA Buckle Bag, but returned it straight away. Although the CLAVA style was just what I wanted, the material felt 'cheap'. There were some minor scratches, and showed 'white' underneath, as if the leather wasn't very thick. THIS Piel leather is thick, soft, and luxurious. I adore the size and shape. I needed a stylish bag that I could carry my water bottle, file folders, lunch, book, etc. I wanted ONE BAG to carry instead of separate purse, lunch, etc. to work. This does it beautifully! I'm going back for a second item.
