    Exactly what I needed

    I’ve had my eye on this bag for a very long time; the regular price was a little too much for me at the time, but the warehouse sale made it accessible and I was okay with having an imperfect product. To be quite honest, I’m not even sure what is considered imperfect about it; the only thing I can think of it is the key ring, which is on a long strip of leather as opposed to a ring mounted inside the bag near the cover, as per the video in the product description.

    The bag is beautifully crafted and the detail is wonderful; each metal rival is embossed with a P from the Pond logo and the adjustable straps are very convenient. It’s great to carry my laptop and files around; the magnetic closure for the inside laptop pouch sometimes has a hard time catching but works very well for the most part. There is a nice zippered pocket where I keep my wallet and two extra pockets for anything else you may need, like a mouse or sunglass case.

    The pocket along the back, where the backpack straps would sit, is very ideal; for COVID, it’s a great spot to keep a mask. From other reviews I’ve seen, it’s a great spot to keep a phone, but if you have a larger phone, such as Plus sized iPhone, the magnet closure won’t fully catch; it’s ideal for smaller sized phones.

    I’ve yet to use any other straps than the backpack straps; they’re perfect for distributing the weight of the bag. If you have a short torso, even the smallest strap adjustment can feel a little long, but it’s still very nice to use.

    In all, a lovely bag and I highly recommend! Be prepared for high duty fees if having it delivered outside of the US, however.

    Fantastic work/everyday bag with a few minor issues

    Overall, I love this bag and really enjoy using it as my work and everyday bag. I've noticed a few issues in the course of using it for the past few months but they are by no means deal breakers.

    Pros:
    Gorgeous -- looks expensive and is even lovelier in person. The leather is beautiful and is softening nicely over time.
    Weight distribution -- it weighs more than some other bags I own, but it doesn't feel as heavy and causes less strain on my shoulders.
    Five feet -- love this detail; the middle one makes a huge difference.
    Side pockets -- so handy for water bottles as you don't have to worry about liquids spilling into your bag.
    Keyholder -- makes keys very easy to find.

    Cons:
    Shoulder strap -- a little too long, especially for my petite frame. I got a custom-made shorter strap and the bag now looks much better on me proportion-wise.
    Zippers -- don't look/feel as luxurious as the rest of the bag. The zipper hardware is a much yellower gold than the rest of the hardware, the zipper pulls have loose stitching; and the zippers sometimes get stuck.
    Magnetic closures -- they're very strong, to the point that they are stretching the leather in certain places. They also caused problems with demagnetizing hotel keys on a recent trip.

    Finally! Style meets functionality

    This is my do it all bag. It’s the only diaper bag that doesn’t make me feel like I’m carrying a diaper bag. I love the Italian leather and it’s quality from the neat stitches to the strong magnetic closures. I use this as my work bag daily, then I just pop in the insert with the baby gears ready to go. This bag also traveles well with space for air travel items. I took this with me to nyc as my only work/play bag. The interchangeable straps is amazing for transition for all your needs. LOVE!

    Modern Bag review

    Really love this bag. Such a modern classic - so well designed . I believe the quality is superior to so many with equal or higher price point. I look forward to enjoying it for many years, and anticipate Pond's new designs in the future.
    P.S. Being from LA also and growing up so close to Pond HQ , I am glad I can support an LA based, woman managed, boutique business. Cheers to Continued Success !
