I really love this bag.The design is lovely. The separate compartments are great. It's a little bit of a larger bag, but the shape doesn't make it feel as big (as say, the Gadabout which seems larger). As someone else mentioned, the pockets on the front are just about the best one could image - the snap closure is actually two pockets, one hidden and one more obvious, though both are secured with snap closure which is really great so phone doesn't fall out when moving bag. Then there is the slip in pocket for sunglasses
. Best pocket configuration I have ever seen in the front. Unfortunately, the one thing that really didn't work for me is how the strap is attached to the bag. The two ends of the strap are attached to opposite sides of the bag - one to front, one to back. I suppose that this helps to keep the top of the bag "closed" when there is tension on the strap, like when you are wearing it. However, what that means is that when trying to open the purse to reach in, you're opening it against a small amount of tension and it doesn't just stay open, so you have to lift it a little to stick your hand in. I think this would have been okay but my main purpose in getting a larger purse was to carry my iPad. When the iPad was in the purse (in any of the 4 possible compartments), accessing any of the other major sections was really tough - not quite impossible, but a pain and the other sections would not open fully. Because opening fully meant that the two strap attachments had to move away from one another and the iPad interfered with one being able to move, no matter which section it was in. Also, my iPad with case just "barely" fit in when placed horizontally. I would definitely need 2 hands to put it in. This was a minor annoyance and I probably would have overlooked if the other issue with accessing the other compartments hadn't been such a problem - the other compartments simply wouldn't open enough to see what was in them or reasonably access things. I might have had to take my iPad out to access other things and that just wouldn't work all the time. Perhaps if you didn't have a case on your iPad it might be okay - but then your iPad wouldn't be protected. In any case, I tried this purse over and over to see if I could get it to work because I really liked it better than the other two options I was considering, but in the end, the compartment accessibility was too big an issue and I went with the Gadabout instead. The compartments are nice and roomy for all of your things, and I like having separate compartments to stay organized. This was my first experience with the Mosey brand and I'm really impressed. The quality is quite nice, and I love that everything is made from recycled plastics and sustainable leather. A+ in my book.
