I received this beauty in the mail yesterday and I'm already completely in love. My favorite feature is it's size - it is plenty big enough to hold my daily essentials - while still being small enough to use as a handbag/every day bag and have a feminine look and feel (though it is honestly such a classic look that it could easily be used by anyone). This combination - big enough to be functional while still compact enough to use day to day - is extremely hard to find. I have a Tumi backpack as well, that I do love, but it's really more of a backpack than it is a handbag, so whenever I have a day when I'd prefer hands free/less stress/weight on the shoulders, I am then compromising between comfort/utility and style of the bag. Not with this pack - it easily transitions and still holds all the essentials I had been carrying in the Tumi pack. I think a customer would also be hard pressed to find this quality of material and craftsmanship for a better price - I can tell this was made with care, from top notch materials and will last for years. The pack is also very easy to get in and out of, and, fits me perfectly on the prong it came set at, though, that is of course adjustable (there's eight holes for the prongs). For those wanting an idea of what it fits: 13 inch macbook air in its case; a continental style wallet; an A5 size leather binder notebook/planner, a medium sized make up pouch (holding several dozen pens, all computer/phone chargers and cords, hand sanitizers, whiteout tape, cloth masks, business cards, feminine products, hair accessories, a compact mirror, etc.), a mini hair brush, sunscreen, hand lotion, two mini notebooks, sunglasses in case, checkbook, subway passes, and a few random papers. I'm also pretty sure that it could easily fit a 9-12 oz water bottle, a few snacks and a scarf/cardigan. The only thing I wish I'd done before ordering is get a monogram (and in a moment where I'm in more of a "tote" mood, I just might send it back in for that service!). Highly recommend this bag - it will not disappoint!
This was my second purchase from WP Standard, because I absolutely LOVE their products. The quality is absolute top-notch and I have never found another company that even comes close. I recommend their bags to everyone I know! This backpack is the perfect size--large enough to carry a laptop and daily necessities, but small enough that I carry it as a purse even for casual outings. The tan color is beautiful and I've gotten so many compliments on it. I know I will have this bag for a lifetime. Thank you again!!!
I recently gifted this to one of my clients after learning of her breast cancer diagnosis (UGH!!). She always commented on how much she liked MY midland backpack when I'd strut (Yes. Wearing the Midland Backpack makes you freakin' strut!) into meetings. So I thought....ya know what? This kind woman deserves a little something that's going to make her smile every time she wears it. And for me - that's the Midland Backpack. I hope it does the same for her.
This is the 5th product I’ve purchased from WP Standard over the last 8 years, and as always, totally satisfied with everything. This pack was for my wife, and she was totally stoked as she has never had a “forever bag” like this before. I got it monogrammed without quite knowing where it would be or how it would look, and it came out wonderfullly, located under the flap near the top. The material, threading, and overall craftsmanship is impeccable, making for a beautiful bag. After 8 years, my WP wallet is still holding strong with a nice patina, and my messenger bag has aged like fine wine as well. My WP guitar strap may well be one of my favorite possessions. Thanks Ryan for your passion!
