Rated 3 out of 5 by Gazebo No grasp in the clasp
This bag has so much potential, and it is ALMOST what I wanted. To start with, the color is not quite as dark as I had thought it might be, but that is not the problem. It is pretty. The problem is the magnet that is supposed to hold the flap down. It really may as well not be there as it is so weak. The flap opens with no problem on it's own exposing everything inside. If there were a zipper across the top, that would be fine, but, as it is, I don't think it keeps the contents safe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WillTravelForFood Perfect Size and Shape
Though the color is more on the coral side than the red/orange seen in catalog photos, the size and shape of this bag make it perfect for everyday schlepping. It's surprisingly roomy with tons of pockets.

I originally wanted the red bag but it was not available on line the day after I received the new LLBean Signature catalog. Decided to call the 800# to complain and was told that I could order the bag in "ember". Took a chance on it and really love the bright cheery color.

Rated 3 out of 5 by amosamee Ok but not terrific
I was hoping to get a purse I really liked. Years ago I had a leather one from LLBean that I liked so much I wore it out. It will not be the case with this one. Its ok, but not quite deep enough, my wallet keeps popping up the flap, and the flap wrinkles.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Eveline So disappointed
Purchased this Signature saddle bag. However, after using it for TWO days, the inside lining ripped away from the leather. I am a long time LL Bean customer and am surprised by the poor quality of this bag. Returned it immediately.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NYClg great bag - but not crossbody
I really like this bag, but the strap is a little short so it's not quite perfect. I'm 5'8" - so taller than average and wish the bag came with a longer strap so I could wear it cross body. Otherwise it's a great size, soft leather and nice shade of brown. It's big enough to fit my kindle keyboard reader (so it should fit other small tablets), a wallet, phone and other "purse stuff". The bag is short enough for me to see everything.
