Hey ladies, I've joined the club! I bought this bag from an online consignment store and it just arrived today. I was a little miffed about the shipping - it arrived in a tiny Priority mail box, FOLDED, in a ratty dustbag. I figured a professonal seller would stuff the bag and send it a little bit more nicely. But the bag itself is amazing, no signs of wear at all. I don't know what color it is, it photographs brighter than it is, it's a nice, rich cognac brown and the leather smells WONDERFUL. I bought this bag to use at school and it turned out to be too small, but I will still be using it a lot. The shape of this bag reminds me a little of the Coach ergo, but oh my gosh, the leather is so much nicer. I'm convinced that the Kooba is the better value overall, even at full price. I just looove it! And this particular bag was only $150, it's the most affordable bag I've purchased in awhile I'm happy to find a new brand with reasonable sale and resale prices. Sorry about the awkward pic, I'm trying to lay the bag flat and get it back into shape.
