The "LBB" (little book bag) is an amazing bag. The 4 exterior slip pockets are everything for those of us who like quick and easy access. They slip pockets easily hold my wallet,... view more double glasses case, and cell phone. Also, they’ve changed (improved!) the interior. Instead of the iPad slip pocket they have a zippered interior pocket, which is much more useful. I also love the aesthetic of this bag. Out of R&T's current line, this bag reminds me the most of the aesthetic of vintage R&T. It is rugged in a refined way, classic and easy. Also, the cognac leather is amazing - everything a dark brown leather should be. This bag will get lots of use! view less
I purchased the distressed espresso + mineral earth flap and truly appreciate the beauty of this bag. It's more casual than the handbags I normally carry, but that's what makes it ... view moreso special for me. It has a chic rugged look that is accentuated by the mineral earth flap. That leather is a greenish brown color that shimmers in the light. It is gorgeous next to the distressed espresso. I also appreciate how light-weight this bag is and how many pockets it has. That helps me easily organize all my stuff. And the strap nicely adjusts from shoulder length to crossbody.
The only thing I would improve – and this is a small thing - is to make the entire outside of the bag leather. As it is, when you lift up the outside flap, part of the top of the bag is canvas on the outside. Fortunately, you cannot see that while carrying it. view less
