I love the size, the soft yet tough feel, and the metal clips on the strap. This really is the perfect bag and the price is not bad at all. It's worth buying at least 1 if not 2. I'm looking at buying my 2nd bag because I am very happy with this purchase!
The stone is a great color. Large enough to hold two cell phones, wallet and other assorted items with room to spare. Not so big it gets in way. Smaller pockets on inside. Probably could have got away with one size down.
I fit a lot of stuff in it as you can see from the last picture. Felt someone may want to see it in black. I love this purse. It's a soft supple. The only thing I would change is the center ziper compartment and just make it more. But I have other purses that have the same thing, and I. Other than that its. The camel color is. I need something that opens up wide so I can find things easy.
Hate bags that are too narrow at the top and are dark inside. This bag is nice soft leather feel and not too heavy with the rings. Its the perfect size, not too big or small. This has been a great bag so far and I am very pleased with it. It does look and feel like leather and is quite roomy. It is comfortable to carry on my shoulder and has a lot of compartments inside to carry everything I need.
The construction appears to be solid too. I am very happy with this bag. I am really happy with this purchase. The purse color looks just like the picture and does not feel cheap. Some purses look and feel like the outsides might start cracking and peeling at antime and I was worried that maybe the case with this one, especially since it was a lower priced purse but thankfully that is not true with this purse.
The outside of this purse feels great and I have had it for a while now and it still looks brand new. I like the hobo style purses and this one is the exact style I love with the chunky clips on the side.
I found that the shoulder strap is the right length for carrying the purse over my shoulder. I was a little leery of ordering this purse because some reviews stated that the shoulder strap was too small but that was not my experience. I have received several compliments about the looks of this purse. While I love the hobo style purse I am not fond of spilling my purse which happens a lot with these type purses which is way my favorite feature is the zipper on top of this purse.
It contains my mess in side the purse and does not let everything spill out when I sling my purse somewhere like inside my car. I have a habit of just throwing a purse in the passenger seat of my car and the next thing I know, if I have to stop suddenly or go around a sharp curve, is I hear everything falling out of my purse.
Not a problem when the top is zipped!!! I really enjoy this purse, IT has extra pockets. The material has a nice suede like feel. See all reviews. See all customer images.
