Love this bag!

I usually prefer a smaller bag but I am really enjoying this one. It is smart and comfortable over my shoulder and such a practical everyday bag. Love the colour too- it goes with so much.
  • Quality and colour and look.
  • Would like a few more internal compartments.

I got this for my sister for Christmas. She had used this toe other times already and kept coming back to the same model. It's versatile, convenient and good quality. I bought the large one by mistake, but my Brother in law says he'll take it. Added the order for the Mini immediately. The delivery was good and it's well packed in a sturdy box.

Best bag ever

I have two- in navy and red- and they last and last. The navy one traveled with me through Indonesia, Europe, Japan and the U.S. is the same one I take to important work meetings with govt officials. It always looks good. The canvas is thick enough that it's more water resistant than some rain jackets. The mantra that good design enables and bad design disables is apt for this bag.
