        I been having this backpack for a couple months now and I am satisfied with the material used on it. The leather was looking nicer as the months went by..unfortunately, but fortunately, I let my brother use it one day when he was rideing his motorcycle. He did get into an accident and in result, the backpack protected his back. I am glad that I lent him the backpack that day.

        The leather is nice. The pockets are functional. The straps are comfortable. Problem is the zippers, which catch on the fabric that is sewn into the leather. They slowly begin to separate from the fabric holding the zipper to the leather. I thought this was a freak problem, so a bought a canvas bag since I otherwise liked the design so much--same thing! In fact this one was worse, happening at even more places. I took it to a shoe repair guy who said it could not be repaired short of a sewing in a new zipper. I should have kept the receipt as the 1-year warranty only works that way. Really unfortunate that the zipper fabric keeps doing this.

        Poorly constructed zipper

        By 

        from Toronto, Canada

        Comments about Fossil Estate Leather Backpack:

        I received this bag as a gift from my parents in April and loved it, so got rid of the gift receipt, which was a mistake. The bag is beautiful and functional except for the zipper for the main compartment, which had shredded and separated from the leather body by May. I took it into a Fossil store to ask about a repair and the bag was sent out only to be returned to me today with a notification that it's not under warranty since I can't produce a receipt. At this price point, I'd expect craftsmanship that lasts longer than 6 weeks of lightweight use. Super disappointed and won't be shopping at Fossil again.

        Excellent Leather Backpack

        By 

        from Minneapolis, MN

        Comments about Fossil Estate Leather Backpack:

        I have had this bag for almost a year now and couldn't be happier. It is my daily commuter bag and has made several overseas trips as well. The natural weather and patina of the bag adds character without looking rundown.

        The leather has softened even more than when it was new but has held its structure well.

        The zippers have held up well so far and just needed time until the leather broke before they became easier to use.

        Not the right bag for me

        Comments about Fossil Estate Leather Backpack:

        I am returning this bag. I have had a Fossil bag for several years - this one is not as well constructed and does not have the features of the old bag. I have retained the previous back back purchased from the Fossil Store in Lexington, KY, and will be looking for a shop where I can have the zipper replaced.

        Sorry - I love Fossil products but am disappointed in this one. Thank you for understanding.

        I needed a book bag for work that was sturdy and strong. This exceeded my expectations.

        I've only had this backpack for less than 2 weeks but thus far I'm happy with my purchase. Great leather and quick arrival!

        I collect leather bags, and this bag looks really nice. However, the leather gets scratched up very easily.

        Bags nice, packaging wasn't.

        Comments about Fossil Estate Leather Backpack:

        Bought this bag 3 weeks ago and it arrived on time which is great. The way it was wrapped was disappointing. It was bubble wrapped and put in a satchel bag. In the mail it must have gotten squashed under other mail and I now have to stuff the bag with butchers paper to get it back into its original shape and look. The leather has also become creased in places. Otherwise the inner linings and everything else is nice.
