Gola Redford Bag,
This review is from: Original Gola Redford Classic Retro 70s Messenger Shoulder Bag (Apparel)Purchased one of these bags for my 11 year old daughter for High School in October 2011. Initially was very pleased - just the right size to fit the days school books, planner, pencil case & packed lunch and keep said items organised. Waterproof/easy to clean much more practical than previous fabric bag. However, first week back to school in January 2012 and the strap broke! Handle tore/stitching undone where the ends were stitched together - just hanging on by a thread - so not great. Would give 5 stars for size/style but only 1 star for durability so settled in the middle at 3! Awaiting refund from supplier (not Amazon).

I have had exactly the same issues, bought one in November for my 11year old, thought it was perfect for school, but the bottom corners just wore through, it has 4 holes, the stitching came apart, there's a hole in the top where it bends in when it's carried. I have only been offered a replacement not a refund. Not happy.

Had exactly the same problem with an Adidas bag, lasted a term and then the strap broke, tried to sew it back, lasted a few weeks then fell off completely. Other son's same bag has lasted longer but at these prices I am reluctant to try again. Will be trying to get a replacement from Amazon if I can find my purchase receipt.
