To be honest... this bag is absolutely beautiful. The color and the generous and simple design is unlike most leather bags I've seen. I actually like the fact that it is soft leather and that it crunches up into a sack rather than retaining a rigid form. That kind of gives it a much more casual feel. Also, while walking, the softness helps absorb impact upon your hips and waist rather than having it flop around your body as you walk.
HOWEVER.... given the fact that it is $25 more than the previous drop (which was already pricey IMO), I can't justify purchasing it no matter how badly I want it on my shoulders. Seems like a money grab from how popular the drop was before and taking advantage of it. I'm glad this pushed many hopefuls away seeing how little commitment there is.

Say what you will about 'money grabs', but we're seeing a lot of leather companies increase their prices in response to soaring leather/beef costs.
