I quite like this bag but I am worried about the handles

it's really nice but I am scared the handles won't cope with any weight

I'm about to start a job where I will need a work bag - but phone, Kindle, purse, drink bottle, snack, pens etc will the straps survive?

Hmm they do look a bit insubstantial. JL would be safe bet to return if they did prove to be weak though surely? Just hang onto the receipt.

I like it, and I think just carrying the things you mention it will be fine

How long 'should' a bag last?

I know what you mean about JL being safe tho'

My leather bags last until I got bored of them so a few years. The straps are probably sewn inside the holes so should be ok.

I wouldn't carry a massive water bottle in any handbag though. Unless it's at the bottom on its side it will distort the shape.

Yes on it's side would work

Are they other similar bags - I like the separate compartments

I seem to be quite hard on my bags or I pick badly they don't last well
