Piel Fashion Avenue Ladies Backpack

Very stylish. Love the leather and the divided compartments. Awesome backpack.The opening could have been a little bigger. I would recommend this bag to anyone. Its a backpack but, more like a purse.
Looks great, but...

I needed a bag for commuting on the subway that looks a little more adult but allows my hands to be free for reading the morning paper. This bag looked like my solution but it is unbalanced. The snaps open easily, and when it is held by only one strap over one shoulder (which you tend to do when shopping) it tips over to the side and opens. So shopping is a pain. Holding it in your lap while commuting is a sure fire way to lose your wallet.

The leather is very soft, and the backpack is very well made. Perfect for short excursions. It easily holds a book to read plus all the "stuff" I would usually carry in a purse. I can use it as a purse and sling it over one shoulder or use the backpack option when I need both hands. Only two drawbacks: 1) if it is filled and heavy, it might not be comfortable for long since the straps are narrow; and 2) the top flap has 2 magnetic closures and sometimes it takes a concentrated effort to get them connected--I'm hoping this will get better as the leather continues to soften (although, it's very soft now).
Piel Fashion Avenue Backpack
CHughes from NH
This product is made of very nice leather. Great storage...the pictures on the web do not show much if any of the interior but there are three compartments...one open and two zipped. There are several small pockets also inside. My only compliant is that the straps are way too long...so I tied mine in a know and it works fine...I also had to make another hole for the buckle part as there are not enough available to make it smaller...I like my backpack tight against my back. Otherwise it's a great quality leather backpack and worth the money. I would order a Piel bag again.
