PROS: Beautiful leather, lovely deep brown color (I chose the dark brown). Luggagepros had the BEST price on this bag (I did an internet search). They sent the bag out promptly and, because I decided to go with another bag, they accepted my return, refunded me promptly, and even sent me a kind, gracious note afterward. I'll be back! But back to the bag: I love knowing that we can buy leather goods NOT made in China. Piel bags are made in Columbia, and are beautiful. I have purchased--and returned--many types of PIel bags until I find my right fit (thanks, Luggagepros, for your patience with me!). It seems that each bag, and the leather of each bag, differs. I love the rich smell of the Piel leather, the thickness of the leather, and the durability.
CONS: None, really. I found that the "saddle" colored bag was too orange-y for me, the red too bright, but the dark brown was the richest, most neutral and beautiful.
