I bought a Calvin Klein backpack purse for a trip to Montreal. It broke at the stitching on day 2. I was concerned about buying another one for a trip but bought the JeHouze before going to Reno for a business trip. This bag was amazing and held up and still looks brand new. I thought it might be too big when it arrived but it worked out great and never felt too big. My husband especially likes the texture as well. Highly recommend for trips or daily purse.
