I really like this bag. The cross body design is wonderful for hands free shopping with the bag securely at the ready! The fleece lined pocket fits my droid phone perfectly. The only negative would be that if you just put it over one shoulder, it tends to slip down. It is a bit on the small size but this is a good thing for me, as I tend to be a pack rat and then have to endure a heavy bag. It is large enough for essentials.

Brands I'd also recommend: Keen bags are awesome too!

I love my purse! It has room for everything I need, even my Kindle in its case! It helps me stay organized. This is the second purse I ordered from Zappos. I didn't like the first one so I really appreciated the free shipping in both directions! Zappos even upgraded my shipping on the second purse so I got it much sooner! Thank you very much Zappos!

This is an amazing bag. The size is perfect. It just seems to fit against the body perfectly. The strap is wide enough that when you load your bag up it doesn't dig into your shoulder. There are so many sweet little compartments on the outside that you can get to your keys, iPod and public transportation card quickly! Very well constructed and much thought put into this gem.

This is my second Overland bag, bought primarily because I love the Donner so much. This bag is smaller, without the Donner water bottle sleeves, but smaller and less bulky as well. The front flap keeps all my essentials handy, and I love the slip in cell phone pocket that is lined. The color is light enough to be neutral and go with everything, but wipes off easily and looks clean despite vacation abuse. The bag lays flat against my side when I wear it cross body, but hangs properly as a shoulder bag as well (my primary problem with most cross body bags) The only improvement I would make is to make the main compartment zippered versus a snap, as I prefer the extra security. As always, Zappos service was amazing!

Great bag! I bought this to take with on vacation and I loved it. It's a great size; not too big or too small. The outside flap stays closed with the help of a magnet, so it's always closed yet easily opens to grab those items you need quickly like sunglasses, passport, phone, etc. It fits nicely on the body and is super durable. I receive many compliments on this bag. Great investment.

I just received this bag today! First of all, I only ordered it yesterday afternoon, and it is here already! Wow! I ordered another bag at first and did not like it, so ordered this one next, and it is perfect. I am 5'10, and the strap is plenty long enough to wear cross body. I was looking to free up my hand from carrying a "cute" purse all the time, and this is it. Lots of storage, great quality, looks cute, and is comfortable on my neck. I should order another just to have in case they stop making them. Overall, really happy with my first time dealing with Zappos!

Just got my new favorite bag! Thanks for such quick delivery, Zappos! Ordered it yesterday, got it today! This bag is great, it's just what I've been looking for. Perfect size for holding all my stuff. One of the other reviewers said that it didn't stand up by itself. Mine does! I've been looking for the perfect bag for over a year, and I've finally found it. I'll be ordering another one in another color soon! Great buy!

I am extremely picky about handbags and while this is not the most fashionable bag in the world, it is brilliantly practical. It's the perfect size for a wallet, makeup bag, water bottle, with an outside (un-zippered) pocket for cell phone and keys. It even has a fleece lined pocket for sunglasses so I can skip the bulky case. Inside zippered pocket is mesh so you can actually see what's in it. I love this bag. Super comfy strap and lightweight.

Comfortable cross shoulder bag due to the strap placement. Simple, clean design. I like that it doesn't have zippers, straps, clips, etc. all over the place.

Nice bag but the snap pulls loose too easy, and then the contents spill out! They need to put a different closure on the top to replace the snap that opens to easy!

I like this purse but it has a major flaw in my opinion. I have a problem with the strap. It's too wide. And thus is not as comfortable to wear crossbody as my smaller (Bayliss) version. It'd be perfect if not for that strap!

Nice looking bag. I thought it was a little bigger since I was looking for a bag to carry to and from work. Held my nook and my wallet but other than that, not much more. If it were bigger I would have kept it but it's not so it's getting returned!

Great bag, should outlast me. Quite sporty. The only quibble I have is the strap slips off my shoulder. I don't do cross body. I wish it was big enough to slip a water bottle into, but you can't have everything.

I really want to like this purse, but I cannot bring myself to rate it much above "meh" thanks to a few serious design flaws. Firstly, the asymmetric attachment points of the shoulder strap mean that this bag does not want to hang straight; it twists open when slung cross-body. This twist causes the male and female sides of the snap to sit about an inch away from each other. The snap is not strong enough to stay closed under this stress, so the top of the bag stays open. This is with only a modest load in the bag. The lack of a covering flap or full-length closure also invites environmental intrusions in inclement weather. Secondly, the flap covers a pocket that is wonderfully subdivided into small compartments for organizing bits and bobs, and the magnetic clasp is hugely convenient. Sadly, this pocket is shallow and the magnets' positioning do not allow any flexibility in the position of the flap when it is closed. The end result is that the flap will not stay closed if the front pocket contains much more than a cell phone. The material and craftsmanship in this bag seem darn-near bulletproof. The styling implies serious practicality, but that does not jive with its day-to-day utility. I would not buy it again.

I have had this bag for a couple of weeks. At first I wasn't sure I liked it. But I thought I will try it for a couple of days and see. I am glad I did. Now I am enjoying it. Use it daily. The only thing I am still trying to get used to is the width of the handle. Would have preferred 1 inch.

I have never written a review on Zappos, but I love this bag so much, that I had to come and give it 5 stars. In fact, I love this bag so much that I have it in two colors. I have carried this around for months and took it on a ton of trips this summer (including Mexico). What a great bag for traveling and so convenient for storing money, my passport, airplane tickets, etc. Originally, I ordered it in 2 colors because frankly, the pictures here are not really true to life in terms of color and I thought I would choose which color I liked best. Well, I ended up loving this bag so much that I kept both. I have the red-violet which is more of a dark plum and I have the poppy which is more of a darkish orange than what I would consider "Poppy." This bag wears well and is still in great shape after a summer of traveling all over. The bag is also extremely light in weight, which is nice when you are schlepping through airports.

This is my second Auburn - I have one in green. I love the way it sits across and hugs my body and is not bulky. It holds everything I need and its all so accessible. I'm a Mom-about-town so I wasn't looking for something dressy but this is by no means schleppy! It is trendy and stylish and rustic and I just love the way it looks. I will say that I agree with other posters and wish it had a small zipped pocket somewhere inside the first flap but it is not a deal breaker. Also the magnetic closures on my new black one is not at strong as my green one. I would have liked that added security. I can get my phone, a Kindle or iPad mini and lots of other stuff and it still is not bulky. Exactly what I needed!

I love this bag!! I use it as an everyday purse, and it actually holds all of my stuff! The front pocket has organizational compartments that keep all my little accessories (chap stick, lipstick, eye drops, etc.) in place. There are just enough, too. The back pocket is great for things that I need to grab quickly, and the main compartment is spacious enough for my large checkbook wallet. I can also fit a diaper or two in there, along with a small bag of wipes. I love it! I would recommend this for anyone who needs to carry a lot, but does not want a large bulky bag to do so.

I shopped and looked at quite a few travel type hand bags but decided on this one and am so glad I did. I love the size and how comfortable it is (also very light weight)and how easy it to find everything inside. It fits cross body very nicely and lays flat against the body, which I like. It's not a fashion statement purse but suits my casual life style perfectly. I love it!
