The first thing I want to say about this messenger bag is how awesome it is that the strap can extend really far! My husband isn't a small guy, he has broad shoulders and wears an XL/2X shirt and it fit him great. Being used to bags that don't go up so big, he extended the full strap and actually had to adjust it down again. This crossbody bag would be great for anybody plus size who's been struggling to find an across the body bag with a great length of strap.
For those of you on the smaller side, it can easily be made smaller too. It's a win for everyone!
I have to admit it, I'm a sucker for buckles, but buckles are really annoying to open and close all the time. If you feel that way too, this bag has a velcro seal, which is really so much easier to deal with. I do miss the look of straps and buckles, but I love how easy it is to open and close.
The only thing I don't love about this bag is how easily it picks up cat hair, but when you live with cats, mostly everything does. C'est la vie.
The stitching is really well-done with no flaws or frayed edges on the fabric and I really like the design of this bag. I love the little details such as the leather edges on the inside pockets, the cute little medallion on the front and the branded inner lining. The zip moves easily and smoothly too. It holds a really good amount and is very comfortable to wear.
- No problems with stitching or fabric.
- Cute leather accents.
- Nice design.
- Zippers are smooth.
- Comfortable to wear.
- Suitable for plus size and smaller due to adjustable strap.
