I have been using a leather bag from Coach on and off through the years, but the leather bag (although beautiful) was small and a little bit weak/flimsy, so for years I wanted something better and tougher.

Yes, the Saddleback leather pieces are expensive, but so was the Coach bag, and there is no comparison - you definitely get your money's worth on the Saddleback Leather bag!
