Rated 5 out of 5 by ArmyLady My favorite bag
I got this bag in 2004 and have used it almost every day since! I can only carry a black bag in my Army uniform and this is the one I chose. I love this bag. I need another black bag that's a little larger to carry all the extra electronic stuff. However, this will be my favorite bag for many more years to come despite being well worn. I've been very hard on this bag and it's served me well.
I love the little zipped inner pocket for my passport and other small items. I also like the two compartments for notes, papers, etc.
This is my go to bag for work and I often use it for weekends.

Rated 3 out of 5 by DarthBreather Mixed review
I bought this bag without seeing it, based on the online views and reviews. My gift card was supposed to work for coach.com purchases, but it didn't. So I went to a coach store and they ordered it for me. (These bags are online-only sales.)
I was pleased in some ways and disappointed in others. First, the positives:
+ The size is exactly right for me. It holds my passport wallet and letter-size papers (bent over under the flap).
+ It's very light, which is great. I was afraid it would be too heavy.
+ The hardware looks well-made and solid.
+ The simple design is excellent. I would have liked one more pocket under the flap. but this is pretty good.
- The leather is limp. When the bag was described as unlined, I expected something more rigid. When you put stuff in the bag, it looks lumpy. The bottom is soft, too; in use, it will sag below the seam. Think of it as a sort of fine leather sack. Other coach bags I've had were more structured.
- I bought the mahogany even though black would have been more functional because the 'mahogany' color looked so rich onscreen. But it's really more of a medium brown, and with a matt finish, it doesn't look rich, It looks okay.
So - to sum up. I was looking to this bag to replace a 20-year old Gold Pfeil. But I still like my old bag better, even though it's showing its age cosmetically. I'll keep this bag. It's a good bag, with a lot going for it, and this design isn't easy to find. But I was expecting more from Coach.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MNCoachFanatic I have my classic bag again!
I was so happy when I saw the city bag available again on the Coach site. I happily used my original bag for 15+years, including sending it in for repairs - but the time was coming for replacing this old classic. How wonderful to have my new bag - like a familiar old friend. Love all the Coach products, including the newer colors - but this bag has been, and will be a wonderful investment! By the way, I have it in navy and British tan too!
