I bought this bag in 1997 and it's been with me constantly ever since... I sometimes thought about changing and then realized there was no point. It's just perfect.
I must admit I had to staple the label to prevent it from going away... The rest is as good as new or even better, it's softer!Rating: [5 of 5 Stars!]
I got the medium sized bag in red for work and I love it. The size is perfect, the color is great and it does hold a lot. I put my planner, water bottle, lunch and extra stuff and it doesn't look bulky and it's not too heavy as there's quite a walk between where I park my car and where I work. I have the luck of breaking handbag/messenger bag somehow and although I just got this, I know this is going to last a lot longer.Rating: [5 of 5 Stars!]
I bought this bag after getting my first Manhattan Portage bag. Its a great bag, big enough to place my laptop and my everyday work load.Rating: [5 of 5 Stars!]
I bought this bag while living in New York and it has traveled all the way out to San Francisco with me. I have tried other bags since, but I just keep switching back because it is the best bag ever. Its been through everything, and all I have to do is throw it in the wash and it looks as good as the day I bought it.Rating: [5 of 5 Stars!]
My father purchases this bag for my son 5 years ago and its still going strong. He used all through college and now he uses it to go to work.
It looks just as good as when the day it was bought. It's amazing.Rating: [5 of 5 Stars!]
I purchased this about two years ago shortly after returning to college. Since then, I used it daily for three semesters and continue to use it when I need it. The size I bought (not sure which, the 1428 maybe?) is the perfect size to carry two textbooks, or three if necessary. However, what I like most is that it looks almost brand new after two years of heavy use, and I'm not known to keep anything I own in mint condition. This bag is extremely durable and I would be surprised to find another bag that is so perfectly sized that would last anywhere near this long and still pay such a small price for it.Rating: [5 of 5 Stars!]
