classic and stylishReview by Snowqueen75
I purchased the classic leather purse in smooth black. I couldn't be happier with it. It was well worth the hassle of getting through Grandma's Marathon crowd. I can't wait to add to my Duluth Pack collection. (Posted on 6/21/2015)
Done buying bags from anywhere else! Review by Jill
I got the 100 shell bag in pebbled brown leather and am obsessed immediately! It is suprisingly light and the shoulder strap is very comfortable! This is a high quality bag that will last me forever! (Posted on 5/8/2015)
Amazing Saddle BagReview by Kira G
I ordered this purse with a slight upgrade for christmas. When i recieved the purse the strap was too short for me so I called and asked about my options. I paid for return shipping and received a longer leather strap FOR FREE with absolutely EXCELLENT customer service. I cannot recommend this product enough!!! (Posted on 2/25/2015)
Fantastic PurseReview by Jennifer
I was lucky enough to have purchased one of the blue Serengeti leather purses back in November and it is a FABULOUS bag. The strap is long enough to wear it cross-body which is handy when walking in busy places, I can easily store a paperback book inside along with my wallet, phone, and keys. I highly recommend all of your products and I cannot stop singing the praises of this purse. (Posted on 1/19/2015)
Best leather purse ever!!Review by Mary M
I purchased the #100 Classic Leather purse in Smooth Black Leather. I've always bought "C" and "D&B" bags, but no more. This is a much better leather handbag by far. Lots of organizational pockets on the inside and the strap stays on the shoulder. Decided to go with "Made in the USA" bags from now on and this is my first from Duluth Pack, but won't be my last. I've already input a couple of bags on my wish list for Christmas so that my husband can surprise me. Thanks to the folks at Duluth Pack, this purse rocks and will last me a lifetime!!

Duluth Pack #4 - Classic Leather PurseReview by aero
Recently I acquired my fourth Duluth pack. I started out with a blue canvas and leather shell bag, next a blue field satchel, and then a blue book bag. All three bags have accompanied me on various trips, vacations, and adventures. The size variation of each bag has always fit my particular needs from holding a small camera and sunglasses to carrying art supplies, books, or a laptop. I have finally acquired my fourth bag - a classy all leather purse for all occasions. It is neatly lined with useful compartments inside and will last a lifetime. I can't stop loving these Duluth Packs! I wonder what #5 will be. (Posted on 11/4/2011)

Lovely purseReview by Janis
I received the Classic Purse as a gift (larger size). At first I thought it might be too big. Not so! It holds all the things I seem to need and still has room for an apple or other lunch treat. I like the extra pockets and zippered insert. Perfect. The adjustable handle is an additional feature that is a plus. Would highly recommend. Plus, the people who work at Duluth Pack are very helpful and offer excellent customer service. (Posted on 3/10/2011)

A beautiful bag...our daughter loves it!Review by Northwoods Momma
We bought this bag several years ago because we liked the look of it with no one in particular in mind. When we were looking for a birthday gift for our 23 year old daughter last week, we remembered we had this squirreled away. She absolutely loves this bag! Her old purse was her grandpa's old shell bag so this is a step up, but a step in the same direction! (Posted on 1/25/2009)
Great stuff! Review by back to basics
I love my leather shell bag...I carry it every day. It has ample pockets for pens, cell phone, combs, etc. I really like the cross-body styling too; it leaves both hands free to do other things, and improves security of the bag, IMO. The leather is beautiful and rich, and I've gotten lots of compliments on it.

Durability and styleReview by Happy Customer
This brown leather #100 Classic Shell bag is one I have carried daily as a handbag for nearly 5 months. It looks the same as when I received it new, having no signs of wear and tear. The leather, as it becomes more seasoned is more and more comfortable and attractive.
It seems virtually impervias to exposure to dampness, ( I've accidently sat it in a wet place before) heat or cold.
The various pouches and places for pens, cards etc. keeps me organized and able to grab what I need in the checkout line.
