this was a rare disappointing purchase. I could not open the bag wide enough nor easily fit my hand inside. perhaps if the zip opening went down the sides a bit, it would have helped.

Rated 3 out of 5 by rabbit49 a little small
Not sure if I am going to keep this bag. The opening is small and I am not sure if my wallet etc. will fit.

This is a great bag to take on planes and for traveling. I don't like taking my pricey leather bags because of the dirt and filth. This bag is easy to clean, has many pockets for passport, tickets, boarding passes, keys and allows you to put things from your carry on into it for the long journey without having to get the carry on down from the bin every time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Superfeet Nice quality; small opening
Very nice quality bag with many features but the opening was just too small for the bag to be useful; sending it back

Rated 5 out of 5 by BeanFanFromFlorida A Great Bag
I love this bag. It is lightweight and lies flat across my body. It is a perfect size and it has compartments for all of the essentials...pen, pencil, cell phone, coins. The key chain is handy too. The strap is comfortable and adjustable. The color, a dark gray, is versatile and goes with almost everything. If you want a basic, practical bag, this one fills the bill.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JamesGrandmamma Wonderful Bag!
My Mother-In-Law has become G.G. for Great-Grandmother. Each year at the Holidays I look for a bag that can have GG monogrammed on it for a gift from her little Great-Grandson's. This bag was a hit! She just loved it and the matching wallet. I purchased the Grey/Black and had it monogrammed in her favorite color, orange. The quality of this nice little bag is worth twice the price. The expandable zipper is just grand for when you get a bit more items than expected. I just cannot say enough positive things about this bag! It makes a wonderful gift for that "Hard to Find For" person on your list!
Thanks Again L.L. Bean for a Great Item!

Rated 5 out of 5 by alittlered Great Little Bag!
I purchased this bag hoping to have something small, sturdy, and close fitting for wear while chasing my kids through theme parks... It did not disappoint!
I agree that the top zipper does make access to the inside of the bag a little more difficult - another 2" would make access easier, but I read the measurements carefully and knew what I was ordering. I also have the matching wallet and it does fit inside... I was also able to keep spare contacts & solution, sunglasses, a poncho, gum, and several other needful items for our days in the park without any trouble - and without even unzipping for extra room!
Love the key latch, velcro on the outer pockets, and the fabric - after a week of travel, in less then clean surroundings, it still looks brand new. The fabric is also nice to the touch, so there was nothing rough rubbing against my arm/hand. The shoulder strap is comfortable, and extends enough for this round mama to feel comfortable with it around me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by KnittingDiva A good purchase
I have to agree with the others who found the main zipper a tad too small. That said, considering the times that everything has fallen out of my purse when I come to a sudden stop, this is not necessarily a bad thing. The inside pockets are great for organizing, and the front Velcro closing is SOOOO handy for car and house keys. .Also, it easily fits into my desk drawer at work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by YoungBagLady Grey is the New Black
Let me start out by saying that I am a very picky purse and wallet woman. This bag is perfect for me. I had a difficult time choosing between the grey and blue but I had to go with the grey because I knew it would best match my darker wardrobe. I love a bag with a long cross body strap and reasonable dimensions. The size of the pockets are perfect. The Velcro patches are convenient so nothing falls out of the bag. The exterior print is simple and marvelous. Casual is my style and this bag compliments my style very much. I can even wear this bag while I'm in my lighter color, more summer clothes and it matches.
I've read other reviews and it seems the popular inconvenience is the size of the opening. I can see why some women would be displeased with this. It is slightly smaller when you compare it to other bags but I haven't had a problem with it and I don't consider it small and I have big hands. This bag is not intended to be stuffed full of random things. It's meant for organization and a casual look.
I love everything about this bag and would highly recommend it if you're looking for a durable, casual bag.
