Rated 5 out of 5 by CarVal Gorgeous bag!
I LOVE, LOVE this bag. I'm glad Coach went back to a classic and beautiful leather bag. The leather is amazing. I love all the slide and zipper pockets. This is a truly functional bag. Truly a Coach classic! I hope they bring this back in more colors. My only negative is that I don't like a black liner. It would be great if the liner could be a lighter shade of the bag, so for my black bag a gray liner would be perfect. Regardless, this is the best Coach bag in my collection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LinOR Finally the Coach I know & love is back!
I hadn't bought a Coach bag in years, because the company seemed to have drifted away from its "brand" (in my mind), which was simple high-quality classically-styled leather bags. This is the first bag that caught my attention again -- and it's a true winner. I love it. The inner compartments are perfect for organizing my things and keeping things separated. The only zippers are on sidewall compartments, which I love; the subtle magnet closures at the tops of the 3 main sections are perfect. The nappa leather is just as soft and high-quality as I remember in previous bags I owned a decade or so ago (I am so glad they're moving back into using it again for more of their products, as was the case in the past!), and it's gorgeous. I bought the black Borough bag, and love this edition of it. Love that Coach switched back to all-leather where the handles attach to the bag, as opposed to some of the metal rings and "chain"-like decoration they were using a year or two ago when the bag first came out. This change to all-leather connections gives the bag a classy, timeless look -- without being gaudy or overly-styled. My ONLY complaint (and it's really minor) is that I wish the shoulder strap was wider. This one is about 1/2" wide, and for a bag this size, it looks too dainty. 1" or so would have looked much better, and also would be more comfortable. The good news, though, is that the strap is easily removed and so far, I haven't found a real need for it. I removed it and threw it into the bottom of one of the main compartments of the bag in case I ever find myself in a situation in which I really need to wear the bag (in which case, I could pull it out, attach it, and wear the bag cross-body style). Other than that one complaint... this bag is PERFECT as-is, and I hope Coach doesn't change a thing. The Borough bag has morphed a little over the past couple of years, but Coach should stop right here where they've landed and just keep making this one, as-is (maybe w/ a wider strap), in new colors each year. I'd buy it again if they made a dark grey/brown coffee color... or a nice gorgeous navy blue.

Rated 2 out of 5 by pietra Bag doesn't retain its structure
This bag is beautiful, but only two weeks after receiving it, it is bowing in from the sides close to the bottom of the bag. I bought it specifically for its structure (I didn't want a hobo bag or slouchy bag). I haven't overstuffed it in any way. I think it's just the weight of the bag settling, and I hope it doesn't get even worse with age.
