Gryson Olivia-how sturdy is it?


Nov 17, 2006
Hi all,

I love the look of the Gryson Olivia IRL, but what I can't gather is how sturdy is it? I'd want to use it as a work tote which means it would be lugging around notebooks, maybe text book on school nights, a pair of shoes, a laptop--not all at the same time, but you get the gist.

Will it stand up to that kind of abuse, or is it a big bag that isn't meant to carry around that much weight?

i don't have one, but honestly, i wouldn't carry around a laptop or text books in an expensive leather bag...but i am probably in the minority! i use a leather/hemp kale HUGE bag to lug my laptop around in and it holds it shape and will stand the test of time very well. i carry around books, etc., in my MJ, but would never dream of adding my laptop.

just my .02 :smile:
It's not large enough for all that. I put a standard 8.5 x 11" notebook in mine and it was a tight fit when zipped. All I had in there was a cosmetic case and a long wallet. The leather is sturdy, but the bag isn't as big as it appears.
