I have the Auburn, but decided I wanted a new, functional bag for this fall so I ordered the Donner. The poppy color was more "brick" colored than orange and I missed in the description that the front flap had a velcro closure. I know some of the reviews have really liked the security of the velcro, but for me it was a clumsy transition and I couldn't "sneak" into by bag at meetings. I prefer the magnets. So, I am ordering another Auburn for the magnetic closure and the option of a cross over body style.

I wanted to like this wallet and planned to use it for travel, but I don't like the layout of the slip pockets. I could get my passport, cash, credit card, and phone inside but it's just not for me. I have other Overland Equipment bags that I just love but the wallet doesn't do it for me.

A friend bought this purse, I loved it, & bought it as we spoke. It's just the right size for me - not too small, not too big.The front compartment is designed so it opens wide so you can see the contents but the side flaps prevent items from falling out and the velcro closure keeps items from accidentally falling out. The zippered compartment is roomy enough to hold my money, phone and other things I want to keep a bit more secure. And it has a handy slip-in compartment on the back love the design, It makes a nice traveling purse too.

I love the style of this bag, but the color is not as described. It's very dark burgundy. I thought it was going to be more red. other than that it was very nice.

This bag is perfect for what I wanted. I attend conferences and run around a lot for work but don't often need my big laptop bag. This one holds two water bottles, including my oversized one, the iPad, my composition notebook that I still use in meetings, two eyeglass cases, a formal pen/pencil case, a big clutch style wallet, and a bunch of other various things. Keys, lipsticks, mirror, tissues, coin purse, etc., also, my iP5 is in a bulky Otterbox so I assumed it wouldn't fit in the front phone slot, but it does! My only, dumb, compliant is that while it is black, the material is such that it can look more dark brown.

I loved this bag, and had it for about 2 months, when one of the grommets FELL OFF and now the strap is broken. If you look closely, the only thing attaching the leather strap to the bag are 2 grommets, which are adjustable but NOT SECURE at all. I am very disappointed in this bag. I have had Overland bags before, and liked them, but this style is of very poor quality.

Let me first say I am a recovering purse junkie, wanting to be a small purse carrying chic minimalist. I saw a woman in the grocery store carrying an Overland bag and asked her about (she had the Donner). I started looking at the bags on Zappos and couldn't remember the name the woman had other than the brand. So I took a stab and bought the Placer. At first I thought too small for me...then I decided to try it out and it WAS perfect. I. Mean. Perfect. Granted I've only had it for a day, but it fits my keys, checkbook (yes, some people still use those) 2 lipsticks, small wallet, pen, ear buds, chapstick, a little bit of hard candy with room for more small things like aspirin. This small bag is absolutely very well made, exceptionally light weight, and perfect as a cross body or over the shoulder, but better as a cross body because it's so light.

Something has to be stellar for me to write a review. This bag is great. I was hesitant because the front section where you would want to keep your credit cards and money has a Velcro closing tab. But after using the bag on vacation, it was very secure and super convenient. Also inside that front section is a fleece lined pouch for a cell phone. A tab to hold your keys is also located in this section. So, whatever you need is accessible. The main pouch has two sleeves for sunglasses or whatever and is large enough for a brush, lip gloss, compact, etc. At one point I actually stuck my Nikon 35mm camera into the pouch just so I did not have to wear it around my neck and it fit but I could not close the zipper. I am sure a smaller compact camera would fit easily. On the back there is an open flat pouch for storing maps or boarding passes. The bag hangs very comfortably on my hip. The strap has a clip on one side, which I did not really think much about, until we went to the beach and I had to be up and down with the kids. I clipped the purse to my beach chair, so anybody who might be tempted to make off with my purse, would be lugging the beach chair along with it. All in all, this bag is awesome. It replaces my Keen bag which was okay just to keep money and phone, but too small for using as a purse when traveling. I chose 10 bags like this from Zappos, including Mosey and Baggalini and then selected the one that I wanted to keep.

Nice bag - well made, and good looking. The fabric has a subtle sheen, and the colors are good. Rugged without looking too sporty for other attire besides strictly casual. Kind of slouchy, too, so that adds a softer more feminine touch, too. Just what I was looking for.

This is a great bag but I wish it had a waist strap to buckle because the load does not set well on my back. It also chokes the cross body strap when worn across the chest, made it very uncomfortable when I was carrying stuff inside because of the balance. That could all be corrected with a waist strap that would buckle at the waist.

This is a great backpack. I picked it up mostly for its looks, figuring the laptop sleeve was not that helpful and it didn't look like it had a lot of pockets. But it's extremely well-made, has some lovely touches (like the solid metal zipper pulls), and it's very comfortable for me (5"6 woman). I do somewhat wish the top zippered shut instead of the strap & snap combo, but I love the side zipper on the bag that makes it much easier to get out my wallet and magazine while commuting. And it turns out the laptop sleeve is great - even though it says it fits a tablet or netbook, I was able to comfortably fit a 13" Macbook Pro. I'd originally bought a slightly cheaper, lighter bag and I'm glad that I ordered this one to compare - I think it will hold up much longer and it holds a ton of stuff for its slim profile.

The bag has lots of nice compartments to put things. The color is darker than the color shown. It's almost an olive green. The one feature of the purse that I didn't like was the magnetic clasp on the back pocket but that was easily removed with a seam ripper.

This bag is very large, closer to a a messenger bag than a cross-body purse. In person, I found it to have a very informal look that I found to be a bit too casual for work. The primary problem, though, is that the main compartment doesn't close securely. There is only one small snap to hold it together. That just seems to invite pickpockets as well as items falling out. I will return it and keep looking for a bag that closes securely.

I usually don't write reviews, but this is really the best iPad and "other item" shoulder bag I have ever owned, and I've owned a few. It carries well, carries many useful items in addition to the iPad, is well designed, and I have gotten many positive comments on its looks. Highly recommend this bag.

The pros: I got the black one. Very smooth exterior fabric, perfect size for work, lightweight, wide shoulder strap will not dig in to your skin. The cons: 1. my Samsung Galaxy 3 barely fits in the front drop pocket and not easy to take out. It may fit an iPhone. 2. the opening of the main compartment is not wide enough to accommodate my 10" Galaxy Tab. 3. the zipper for the small pocket inside the front compartment only has a thin cord zipper pull. It's not easy to pull. If the cord breaks, there is nothing to pull the zipper.

Really cool bag. I'm a city girl and need to carry a lot with me everyday. This bag is a great compromise between a nice shoulder bag and a more casual backpack. It's comfortable, roomy and looks good. Two design elements that could be better: 1. Two of the front pockets are really long and deep, not practical for everyday needs and 2. The adjustable tabs on the shoulder handles are in a weird spot and aren't as easy/comfortable as they could be.

I absolutely love this bag! I bought it to replace the old model of the same thing, and this one is even better! Great size, great fit, and great price.

This is a great mom bag! I have the Donner and loved the water bottle pockets but wanted a new bag. This one is slightly bigger than the Donner, has the same great dual water bottle pockets and plenty of room for everything else. I love the strap, it is soft and sturdy. And the back pocket has a magnetic snap. I have a 4 year old and this bag is great for all of our outings, big enough for everything we need but not too bulky for long walks or running around the park!

I love it... "They say 3rd time is a charm!" I was looking for a sturdy work bag to replace my North Face tote that I carried so long that I worn a hole in the bottom. (it was raining money). I searched Zappos several times. I settled on one...returned it. Ordered another...returned it. I was about to order the Hobo tote at 298.00 when this bag popped up the the recommend feed. I read the reviews on this bag and said... Nice price point...Go for it! Ordered yesterday..arrived this afternoon. It's perfect. My brother brought me a beautiful and expensive Coach tote to carry. I'm so glad I received this bag. I'm really terrible on work bags. My niece purchased a Tory Burch Tote for me two years ago and that bag was unrecognizable when it bit the dust. Thanks to all the previous reviewers and Zappo... I don't see me wearing this bag out no time SOON!!!! I'm in handbag heaven.. YEA!!!!!

Great denim color! A lot of pockets and room for a book or water bottle in main compartment. Strap fits across bulky jackets with room to spare.
