Had mine since spring newchoos, although leather is super soft, it has been fine. I fill with work and kids junk so it's had a good battering this year so far <and its the camel one and the colour has not marked one bit> and is faring very well.
NewChoos I had the grey one months ago and it's been a very good bag for me -- carries loads and the longer shoulder strap makes a heavier bag easy to carry. I am quite hard on my bags and expect a lot from them and so far it has delivered fine.
I agree NewChoos - MadameC knows about bags !! - but I think too many suppliers over charge - mentioning no makes - for these things and so when you find a 'goody' you need to tell others, spread the word so to speak and they need to benefit - -
