Rated 5 out of 5 by pcsqueen When Even A Medium-Sized Bag Is Too Big...
My job requires that I work during special events (4th of July, Easter, Christmas, etc) taking photos and generally helping out.
Furthermore, because we live in Europe, my husband and I try to take advantage of every travel opportunity that comes our way.
I purchased this bag to use on both occasions and, so far, am delighted with it.
While it's not yet been on a trip, this little number has 'worked' two special events and is exactly what I needed. In it, I can stow my military ID card (essential), some cash, my phone, tissues, lip balm. If I use my travel camera (small Panasonic Lumix) instead of my SLR, that will fit as well.
The adjustable strap affords me the option of cinching it close to my body to prevent it from swinging forward when I bend down. Excellent option if 'helping out' involves emptying trash, stacking folding chairs, or other grunt work.
Granted, the bag's not cheap, but I'd rather spend ten or fifteen extra bucks and know that if it does fail me, LL Bean will stand by their product.

this purse was perfect for flying. Small yet lots of room for all my cards and cash, plus phone and other small essentials. All the safety features are wonderful.

Found this bag to be perfect size. It contained my money, credit card, tissues and passbook. It is light weight and secure. The adjustable strap is plenty long enough to make plenty of adjustments from long to short.

It's a little smaller than I was expecting, but will be sufficient for travel.

Rated 2 out of 5 by TherapyDogMama Unexpectedly tiny
After reading other reviews, thought this would suit my purpose.
Needed a pouch to carry my glasses, cellphone and car/house keys.
a pen and couple of tissues,driver license . This pouch was a tad too small.
Not going to the bother of returning it. Just going to keep it in my
handbag to use as purse.

This little cross-body bag is just the ticket for flea market shopping, walking or biking! I've used it for all 3 activities--perfect! Holds cell phone, driver's license, key fob, credit cards, lipstick, tissue and a few other small items.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MerryMoon small and secure cross-body
This is exactly what I've been looking for to use when traveling or shopping but I ended up using it daily. I use the inside slit pocket for cards and bills so I don't need to use a wallet. I carry an old flip phone for work inside large zipper compartment and my bigger flat droid in the outside zipper pocket. In the larger compartment I also have a lip balm stick, a travel-size hand cream, a pocket-size hand sanitizer, a small comb, a small pen, nail clippers, travel sewing scissors, 1 moist towelette packet, 3 pkts True Lemon, a couple mints, a couple folded tissues, a couple doses of daily med. & baby aspirin, AND tiny zip bag with 2 bandaids, safety pin, sewing kit, & photo of my dogs ;) AND A SMALL SEASHELL! It is light-weight and the strap sits comfortably cross-body. I'm extremely prepared!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by gat14ned Very handy but quite petite.
While I had initially expected that this would be a slightly larger bag, I found it really quite wonderful. Basically it is a wallet that is secure and easy to wear cross body. My travels took me across Europe and I was very glad to have this. I had hoped to be able to put my small camera in, but there was not quite room enough with all the wallet items too. But my camera fits in a pocket so it all worked well, but in the summer I would not wear a jacket with large enough pockets and so would be frustrated by the size of the bag a bit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MSAWN I am in love with this bag ...
I bought this to carry a big phablet phone when I go out from my evening walks, for travelling, and summer festivals. Its very light I hardly know that its there -- and yet it carries my cards, extra-large smartphone, MP3 player, keys and/or other small items. It wears comfortably as a cross body bag, but keep in mind that little loops that attach strap to the bag are not slash proof (like the strap is). This doesn't bother me because because security features are not that important to me -- but if I ever did use it in a setting where I was concerned about slashers, I would simply use the belt loops and wear it around my waist. Its a joy to carry this little bag -- small but functional -- and doesn't weigh you down when you are on the move. Its my new favorite thing!

This bag is a perfect size for cell phone, keys and a few cards. Nice and light for walking. Seems very secure. Good price when I used a $10 credit.
