How would I know the cowhide color if I order black?
The leather will be black and the cowhide will vary on each product. They are unique to each bag that is made.

I got this backpack/purse because I wanted something that would carry what I need, let me be hands-free when I need to be, and look classy. It does all that. Very happy.

Couldn't love it more!

I ordered the black and included a note that I'd like the cowhide to be a speckled or brindle look rather than the big splotches. They chose perfectly for me! I couldn't be happier with the look of it, the weight, the well thought-out storage, and the quality of the leather. Also the lining and pockets on the inside are very well made and will be durable. I previously bought a pair of boots from Overland; they were nicely made as well. I will definitely be a buying from them again. Thank you, Overland, for your attention to detail and quality!

My go to backpack purse for two years!

5 5
My Odessa backpack is the tan brown with brown and white cowhide. I have had this backpack purse for over 2 years now. It has been my go to purse since day one and the quality is amazing. I have used this purse every day for the last two years and there is no visible wear on the backpack. It still looks brand new and is softer than ever. I receive compliments on this backpack purse everywhere I go and my best friend loved it so much that I got her one for Christmas last year in the black and white version. I own much more expensive purses and they sit in my closet as this is the best purse I have ever owned. If you were on the fence before, I hope this helps with your decision as I have owned this bag for over two years in the pacific northwest and none of the elements here have harmed the bag.

I needed to replace my backpack purse and came across the Odessa. I was searching for the "right" purse and found it! Lots of compartments, perfect size and cowhide unique! Overland in Santa Fe does not disappoint. It was worth the wait - Laurie Oklahoma

Just what the doctor ordered!

I love backpack purses and needed to replace my black one. This one is so unique, and has all the pockets/zippers in the right places. The size is perfect too, not too small, not too big. I get compliments left and right!
