100% Leather

A premium leather rucksack that doubles as a tote. This versatile, multifunctional bag is made from beautifully soft leather with a chambray lining - simply pull the strap up to convert it to a tote. The main compartment is big enough to fit a laptop and has a zip fastening and a leather flap with slip closure. It has buckle straps so you can adjust the fit to suit you and we've given it plenty of handy pockets inside so you can carry everything you need with ease. Seasalt embossed anchor branding adds the finishing touch. This handsome bag is one to treasure for years to come. A really special gift, or a treat for yourself.

Quality great with a few buts....

This is a lovely looking bag, and the quality of the leather and the finish is evident. However, there are a few flaws that really make it an occasional bag rather than the daily one for which I'd wanted to use it,

I'm largely in agreement with other posters who have identified the straps as the issue. The bag is a great size and as soon as I saw it, I realised I'd be able to carry an A4 pad in it and use it for work. The problem is the straps are too thin to comfortably use it over the shoulder. It slips off if the bag has only a few light contents, and digs in if its more fully laden. Also, with anything more than the lightest load, the little cross over pieces, that should prevent the straps from slipping too far through the D-rings when in shoulder bag form, are too slight to actually stop this happening, so the bag then squashes down and folds back on itself.

Finally, it would be great if the bag converted not only to a shoulder bag but to a cross body bag as well.

As I said, I love the look so much and wanted something I could use for work, but I think it really is something that it will use rarely - which for the price, is disappointing.

I bought it from a shop while on holiday so I am not close to another store to return it.

Nice bag but not for me this time

I really like how this rucksack sits flat against your body. It looks neat. I wanted a bag/rucksack & was disappointed that it did not convert to a cross-body bag. It works as a shoulder bag but the straps aren’t long enough for the cross-body option. I decided it wasn’t quite right for me. It is a lovely bag & I liked the Olive colour.

Lovely bag!

This is the perfect autumn bag, fantastic colour and buttery soft leather. Perfect in every way!

I really loved the look of this bag and it's the perfect size for carrying my laptop around but I am really struggling with the straps. When I put the bag over my shoulder the leather stops on the strap slip straight though and the bag tips sideways. I have experimented with adding bag accessories to stop this happening but really - I shouldn't have to. So, I'm afraid I am returning it. Very disappointed.

Does not work as a rucksack

I bought this to use as a rucksack mainly, however, as pointed out by other reviewers already, the mechanism does not work. In particular, if you have it on one shoulder, which is my preferred way of carrying a bag. Otherwise, it is a very nice bag and I was really sad to return it, but I hope for an improved product in the future.

Love it!

This bag is made from super soft leather. Practical, no problems with my straps after plenty of use.
Very happy with my bag.

Just Beautiful!

Gave this bag as a present for my daughter, she is delighted with it and hasn’t stopped using it. As she’s a bagaholic that says something! It’s so soft and buttery nd will only look better with age. No problems with straps and the zip is a great security idea when you’re wearing it as a backpack! The granddaughter now wants one!

Love the Olive Green colour, and its a beautiful bag, soft leather, well lined, and a great idea with the straps. For me its a bit deep when used as a shoulder bag, and I think the straps could be a tad wider for better support. This is just what I think, but some may love it. I just don't think that for the price, I will get the wear out of will return, and spend it on something else from the collection.

If only the straps worked better!

Agree with the previous reviewer - this is a lovely bag but the straps are inadequate. What appealed to me about the bag was the dual use, but in reality I find myself carrying it by the top handle much of the time... If anyone figures out a way to adapt the straps to make them useable please let me know!

Lovely bag BUT too much is asked of weak straps

This bag is slim and made with beautiful soft leather, zipped and chambray lining and I love the idea of being a rucksack and tote but the straps and stops on the straps are insufficient for this. I have used it a few times now and can only put on the rucksack by contorting as I hold both straps otherwise the weight ( and that is without a laptop or tablet in it) pulls the strap through and then my husband has to reposition it (I don't take him everywhere with me!!). I'll persevere as I like it but if the straps distort it'll have to be returned. Can you relook at strengthening the straps please?
