Summary: This bag has held up well for about 18 months of daily use and abuse. The only wear so far is on the bottom corners, the semi-shiny nylon material is starting to wear. The leather trim is in perfect condition, as are the leather handles. They are the PERFECT length- great for carrying, or just as good for over the shoulder. I got it for the new rules for carry-on laptop bags, my old one was quite large and not allowed.
