hello i have the small gabrielle backpack and it's holding up very well!! it's totally carefree to use and it just kinda get bumped around when i'm in the crowded area and still it looks brand new. i have been using it for ard 3 weeks (with a few days break in between). once i was eating and the food (oily food!) dropped onto the bag, i just wiped off the oil with tissue and it's gone. no stains. hope this helps!
