I've generally liked the new Brooks bags of the last few years, this one included. There have been reports some durability issues, but I think this was from pretty rough use. I say it'll look better given some time, sun, rain and sweat. Skip the blood though, very few things look better after exposure to blood.

The leather is unlined and the straps don't look that comfortable, but otherwise it is indeed a good-looking backpack. The roll-top doesn't look like it would keep the rain out, something that seems odd for a British cycling-oriented brand to overlook.

The fold over as pictured would definitely be suspect, though I think it's capable of actually being a true roll top which is definitely impervious to water ingress: witness Ortlieb et al.
