I love this satchel so much I bought it twice! It feels good, looks good, wears well and is roomy enough for all your needs. It has two zippered side pockets for keys and/or lip gloss -- the things you have to get at fast -- and still has a large interior sack for all your "whatevers" -- whether they are notebooks, your iPad, paperback, or a snack. Then, it has a couple of other pouches and zippers in case you need more space to store things. Although PU leather, the satchel has the look of real leather. Brown coffee color is a nice touch.
