This is my everyday handbag. I love that it’s got front and back pockets. It’s so roomy. Like the wide strap I can use as crossbody or shoulder bag.

Best bag ever!

I bought my first Marimekko Pal bag in dark blue theee years ago at a Marimekko store in Helsinki . It’s my everyday bag. Light , big enough for all I need especially when traveling.
My only complaint, the bag is not waterproof. Still that doesn’t stop me from using it rain or shine . I either keep the bag inside my raincoat when it’s raining .
I highly recommend this lovely bag !
Also better price here than in Finland .
  • Big enough to fit my iPad when I am traveling and my toiletries bag plus my sun glasses and reading glasses .
  • I love all the different compartments in the bag . Two big outside pockets and a small on inside and the big main zipper . Very light bag the straps are very strops and adjustable.
  • From my first Pal bag, I noticed when it rains hard the bag gets damp . Mostly the outside pockets .

My niece had this bag in Finland, and I decided to get it as well. I have owned many Marimekko bags and always loved them. They are well made and last a long time. I travel a lot, so this will be my travel companion. It is roomy enough for by iPad. It ous light and so does not as much weight.

I love this PAL bag! I always wear my purses cross body and this one is great. There is lots of room, great easy open outside pockets. The side pocket I don’t use as it is kind of tight, could hold a pen. Nice to have the carabiner for keys too.
  • Side pocket too tight.

I love this bag!

I have recently purchased this bag and been using it every day for two weeks. It is made with durable materials, made well, works well. It feels like it is going to last for a long time. I love roomy pockets on each side, a small long pocket on the outside for pens, and a small pocket inside. It is the perfect size for carrying wallet, cell phone, recyclable shopping bags, keys, business cards, pens, sanitizer, a small first aid kit. I like carrying the minimal things for daily basis, but it is nice to have a little more room for traveling or shopping. When I travel to a different city I can even put SLR camera and a small guide book. I am excited having this bag!

This bag has all the features I want in a travel bag. The fabric is sturdy but not heavy. The strap is strong and the pockets well placed, inside and out.
  • Size is perfect for travel.

I've loved Marimekko for years, and was thrilled to find such a great selection of bags on FinnStyle. This bag is everything I hoped it would be—good-looking, sturdy, stylish, versatile, and capacious without being bulky or staid-looking. It's become my daily go-to bag for work and play!

I look forward to purchasing it in more colors.

Also very pleased with the order / fulfillment / shipping / service I received from FinnStyle. All in all, a great experience I look forward to repeating.
