Both stylish and functional. Unlike most convertible backpacks, this bag is shaped in a way that it doesn't look awkwardly long or wide in either usage. It's perfect for a work bag, it holds my laptop snugly in the laptop sleeve while the rest of the bag expands nicely to fit everything I need for the day with room to spare. Also works as a weekend trip bag. The pockets are nicely placed (interior and exterior). And the oxblood color with the gold accents is gorgeous.
