North Coast Luxury Leather Holdall
I have bought this for my Husband as a Christmas present to use for weekends and as a flight bag, the quality of the leather is superb and having bought with 20% voucher was great value for money.

Great quality and good value!
Bought this bag for my brother's 21st earlier this year and now again for my boyfriend. Perfect weekend bag, good quality leather with canvas straps making it quite young looking as not too formal. Purchased in 20% off sale so great value for the quality.

Maybe I Was Just Unlucky But ...
... this bag is all but unusable.
I purchased it and was impressed with how stylish and attractive it was. However, right from the first time I used it, the zip burst open when anything so much as breathed on its sides. This made airport travel, in particular, very frustrating.
I would have returned it after the first use, but I didn't have the opportunity to use until after the 35 days return time frame.
I have used it six times subsequently, and each time have encountered the same issue. The final straw with it came on my most recent trip when the magnet holding the side pocket clearly wasn't up to the job and, unbeknownst to me, it fell off.
More disappointingly, after this recent disappointment, I emailed M&S to express my dissatisfaction and did not receive even the courtesy of a reply.

Excellent compromise product
Bought as a gift, this bag certainly looks swell! Lovely soft leather. My son liked the poppers on the hand grip, preferable to the velcro on other bags he's used. Useful to have exterior pockets.
Slightly disappointed by the lining: both colour - it's much easier to find contents with a lighter interior- & possibly doubtful durability (time will tell).
I would've preferred a canvas bag with leather trim, (lighter weight, less pretentious) but this bag an excellent compromise.
