Product Overview


Quality Materials
Leather- Imagine you paid someone to put a new roof on your house and they didn't put shingles on it. Would you be happy? Well, leather is like a roof and the tough top layer of grain is like the shingles. It's really strong and resists stains, water and tearing, but some companies make leather backpacks with really cheap leather that doesn't have any grain on it. The thick leather hide was split in half at the tannery and the expensive top half that has the full amount of the grain on it (Full Grain) was sold to quality companies like us and the bottom half was sold to bottom dwelling companies that make women's leather backpacks for people who don't understand quality. The split away part ,with no grain, is technically called Genuine, Split or Suede leather. Leather backpacks made of leather that has all of the grain on it (full grain) is expensive and long lasting.

Zippers- Of all of the zippers in the world to match the quality of the leather of this women's leather backpack, we chose his expensive yet quality zipper from Spain. You may find yourself sitting there zipping and unzipping your leather backpack because it is so strangely satisfyingly.

Functionality- This women's leather backpack is designed to age beautifully. It is different from our other leather backpacks in that it can be carried as either a backpack or a zippered tote (backpack straps are detachable and adjustable). It has one interior zippered pocket, an exterior front zippered pocket, and a small exterior pocket on each side to fit your cell phone or other device. It's a leather backpack that is large enough to carry all 13" laptops.

The story behind this leather backpack
This Universal Leather Backpack was not designed based on what is trending right now in the fashion world in the Spring or Fall of this particular year. It is designed with timeless universal thinking and built to be passed down at least two generations. You may not even have a daughter right now, but your granddaughter will be wearing it one day. The quality lies in the full grain leather and the thread because those two things are what determine the longevity and quality of a leather backpack. It is the highest grade leather there is. And therefore the toughest and most water resistant. The thread is the highest grade German thread we could find. This may not mean much to most people, but it does to us. The Polyester thread is more expensive but does not fall apart with exposure to the sun, like Nylon does. This leather backpack is a keeper.

I love things that are functional and beautiful too and that's why I love this new Love 41 Universal Leather Backpack! We have some amazing backpacks here at Love 41, but what makes this one different from the rest is that it's both a bag and a backpack. The style and look sets it apart and its functionality makes it incredibly practical for everyday use. I love the way it feels when I'm wearing it- super comfortable. This bag is also great for organization, which makes finding all my stuff inside really easy. The perfect combination of bag and backpack-what more could you ask for!

    Exterior pocket started to rip

    Exterior pocket started to rip at the seem after 4 days of use. The backpack is advertised as being able to easily accommodate water bottles, but the design does not lend itself to that use case. Love 41 offered to repair the backpack, but their solution was to make the pocket even tighter. I requested a refund.

    Great backpack, but backpack straps too short.

    Overall this bag is exactly what I was looking for! Amazing quality! I love the Tabacco color, and it is right around the same size as my old Montana West backpack. I have been thinking of ways to organize the inside since there isn't much storage, but I new that when I bought it.

    The only reason why I am giving it four stars is because I feel the backpack straps are too short. I have them on the second to last hole and the backpack feels pretty tight on my back (especially in winter when wearing heavy clothes). I don't want to expand the straps to the last hole because the end of the strap will be in the buckle and I don't feel there is enough material their to keep the buckle secure. I wish the straps had 3-5 more inches in length. I wear this as a backpack everyday, so I might look for someone that can make me new straps.

    I never leave reviews but this is a 5 star bag!

    The quality is outstanding. The chestnut leather is a beautiful color. I would have liked a short, wider shoulder strap in addition to the crossbody one. I know the longer strap can be adjusted but I think a short strap would be a nice addition. The hardware is very nice as well. This is definitely a go to bag that will last a lifetime!

    Recent purchase.

    This is my second piece/purchase from saddleback leather. This was purchased for my daughter as a gift for getting into nursing school. She loves the color which, by the way, we had to wait many months for. She wanted something that wasn’t to large and had a zipper. She absolutely loves this backpack.
