This bag is perfect for any one who doesn't need a lot of room. I put my checkbook, pen, Tylenol, and small Leatherman in the front flap pocket. I put my small wallet and eye glasses in the main compartment. It looks great with whatever I wear (professional or sporty) and doesn't feel bulky or big when a wear it as a crossbody. I'm glad I finally bought the Placer and highly suggest you do too.

This bag works very well. It is small enough to carry all day without putting too much pressure on your shoulder and big enough to fit essentials. I especially like the cell phone pocket which is large enough to fit my smart phone. I\'ve gotten several compliments!

I have been looking for a smaller travel day bag so I do not wind up overstuffed! While this one does not have true security features, it is big enough thanks to the depth of the zippered compartment to carry a travel/passport wallet, camera, and bulky sunglass case with room to spare in the gusseted front pocket for pens, small flashlight, business cards, phone/sunglasses, and a map/small guide book. I can see not carrying anything too small or of great value in the front pocket unless it were zipped into the mesh pocket or placed into slip pocket of this particular space since the gussets are not zipped. Overland may want to rethink this! Still, it provides quick access to tissues or scratch paper. It is a great for just getting around town with nice organization features. The periwinkle color is a bonus, it is more blue purple than blue!

Brands I'd also recommend: Vault Pro, Timbuktu, Tumi, Keen, Bagellini, Kipling

This is a great purse if you are trying to downsize and just want to take the essentials with you when you go out. I was tired of becoming the pack mule of the family by having a larger purse. It is small but carries all my cards, cash, lip balm, mints, Blackberry, hand wipes, checks, small Swiss army knife, and keys. I like that the middle section has two slightly padded pockets (where I keep my phone). The zippers are smooth and easy to open, and the cross-body design is very convenient. I like this bag a lot but it is only for the woman that really wants to pare down.

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.

Brands I'd also recommend: None, stick with this brand!

I can't say enough about this bag. I love the print and it was the reason I bought a Placer vs a larger model. The dove grey is a warm shade that works with any color. I used it on a trip to Scandinavia. It was great for carrying wallet, camera, and other necessities. It easily held more than I would have imagined. Only the addition of a passport-sized zip pocket on the back or underside of the flap could make this a better travel bag.

This is an awesome little bag! It is sturdy and you can pack it with more than you would think. I absolutely the compartments under the front flap. They are great for organizing your stuff.

I love this purse. The color and size are perfect for me. There is room for everything that I carry with me. It is classy and stylish for my lifestyle. I am going to order another one soon just so I will have it in reserve for the future.

I have found this bag very useful while traveling. It has become my default travel purse, especially when I don't need to carry a big backpack around. It is not too bulky, has a pocket ideal for a passport and even fits my point-and-shoot. I'm glad I got one in black when it was still available.

I know people rave about their Overland bags so I was really excited to try this style, since I want to downsize from the large backpack I usually carry. Unfortunately, I wasn't overly impressed with the quality. I ordered the Dove Periwinkle Print, and the fabric was so thin that you could see light shining through the white parts. Also, the velcro on the front pocket is really weak, and I wouldn't trust it to keep my phone in place if the bag was overturned, especially since it looks like it will wear out over time. If they had somehow made the front pocket with a zipper closure rather than velcro I probably would have kept this because it IS cute and just the size I was looking for.
