Leather is soft, not the cheap knock off kind. Came with a bag cover for when you store it. This bag is quite large. Had enough space to fit a half lid mtb helmet, 2 pairs of bike shoes and 3 sets of riding kit and still had space for my casual clothes for 3 days.
Overall, really good looking bag. Sturdy handles and good sling. Would probably get the black one next time as this brown one gets stained/dirty pretty easy specially if you check it in rather than having it as a carry on.
