This bag will only get better with age. My nephew is off to college with it and I am sure it will last him a life time. Upon opening the box he said it even had a wonderful leathery fragrance !

The bag is very accommodating in pocketry... I would like for it to be less flimsy. It's more like a sack rather than a protective bag for your valuables while traveling.

This is a great business man's backpack or work bag. It has everything I need when I am away from my office. Glad I made this purchase
Good but needs more -
Best backpack for biz in years EXCEPT needs pen and card holders in outside pockets for quick access
Best I have had -
By: SCPreacher from SC
I have had my backpack for a couple of years now and it sees a lot of hard use. I carry a 15" lap top, an IPad and all the assorted things that go with them to and from work and meetings each day. The color has faded but just gives it a well worn look. The seams, zippers and pulls are holding up well and so no signs of wear..
Not quite what I expected -

The backpack is too big and sloppy looking for business. Quality is good and the green/brown color is excellent. Unless the pack is full the looks are diminishing. Not happy.
Love it but... -

I love Orvis and absolutley love this backpack for its proffesional style and comfort.I have used it for years and frequently recieve compliments. My only negative is reflected in a previous comment. It fades badly in a short amount of time. Particularly the straps. Like the previous review I only use it commuting to and from the train. It shouldn't fade so easily. This washed out appearance looks unproffesional. It's time for me to get a new one, and as tempted as I am to repeat the purchase the fade issue may be a deal breaker.
Color fades badly & looks unprofessional -
By: Mike8186 from Washington DC
My wife gave me the green colored Businessman's Backpack for Christmas 2013. I use it to carry stuff to and from work while attired in a business suit. It originally looked great and impressed a co-worker so much, he purchased one himself. I walk about 300 meters to the Metro each way and that is the only sun exposure the pack has received, as I only use it for work. Nevertheless, in 15 months, the green color has faded badly, and now looks worn and is not suitable to carry for work. This is my only complaint, but it is a significant one. Others' reviews are universally positive, but the badly faded backpack has colored my experience negatively.
