This is a NICE tote! It actually looks and feels like leather - nice matte finish. Love the 5 inch wide bottom. I bought this to use for travel to hold my camera case, other electronics, and personal care stuff. This will really do the trick. I can already see that when I get to my destination, I can also use it while on day trips because it's not so big as to be awkward. I gave the "features" only 4 starts because it could use an outside pocket and may be a removable divider on the inside but for the price it's really great!
