Lin and Leo

I'd like a large red leather bag and having 2DC under 3 wondered if the Lin and Leo might fit the bill.

The cherry lining puts me off a bit but it looks good from the outside.

Would appreciate any words of wisdom regarding Lin and Leo bags or tips for finding my dream red leather bag (preferably under £200)

I got a Lin and Leo bag for my 1st mothers day pressie this year. I picked it myself but didn't like it almost immediately. Didn't want to hurt DH's feelings so used it for a few months til I could change it without too many questions.

My main gripe was it was heavy even before you put anything in it. Leather and metal clips are not lightweight. Also thought the pockets would be good but liked the fact it seemed big inside. However, when you put stuff in the pockets you can't access anything inside (like the changing mat) without opening it right up.

It does look great though and it still gets used when we travel but not good for everyday.

Thanks snownutty, I should go and have a look at one in real life before I buy.

Any other suggestions for decent sized red leather bag please anyone?
