I purchased this bag as a travel bag for my husband first. He loved it so much that my daughter who is in college fell in love with it, and I got one for her. Our son just started college and guess what???? He got one too. My only complaint is that they no longer carry it in the blue. Other than that, the bag is fantastic! It is super durable, very attractive, well made, very room for a weekend get away, and long lasting.
