I am thrilled with my TravelMate Backpack. I've been using it as a purse to also hold my knitting, but think I will save it for an upcoming trip. I can't wait to use it again. Beautifully crafted, as are all Ace Leather products that I own. I love them all.

Haven't had back or neck problems since I began using these backpacks. This isn't my first one!!

This is my second purchase of the travel mate backpack. I have had my other one for over 5 years. It is still in great shape. I wouldn't use anything else

I just received a black TravelMate after having a brown leather one for 15 years. Though I love all the features, this one is not as soft a leather and some of the compartments (i.e., the middle pouch) zipper is not quite as long. I am hoping that as the purse breaks in it will soften up some.

I had been looking for something to replace my everything bag that would lessen the wear and tear on my shoulder. Found it! This bag is amazing. No more dragging on my shoulder. So nice and roomy, a place for everything and everything in its place. Absolutely love it. The leather is so soft. This is my last and best bag!

This bag was very expensive in my opinion & I almost didn't buy it for that reason. Traveling several times this year, I'm very glad I did. It is everything the owner told me it was & made my travels soooo much better. Very convienient bag!

My grandma and I saw this at a Christmas arts and crafts show and both wanted one for travel. I finall decided to get one right before my honeymoon and it's been a godsend! I got the medium and there is a ton of space with room for more, I'm easily able to fit a small translation dictionary with a bottle of water and then some in a single pocket. Oddly enough it never feels heavy either. So happy with this impulse buy!

I have purchased many purses trying to find one that will carry my iPad, hand gun and all the other items I need to carry without breaking my shoulder. This one does it all. Thanks.

Look at one at The Taste of Tacoma. It is well made, and big enough for almost everything you could need for a day trip to the woods or city. Very versatile.

I have chronic back and shoulder pain, this is the ONLY purse I have found that does NOT hurt my shoulder. This will be my 2nd and can not wait. (it is being held "captive" till my anniversary. lol) Thank you for making them, the one that I saw was top notch!!! The leather felt so soft and all the pockets..cant wait.
