Great bag! Took it on a trip to Disney World. Held so much, so efficiently. Held my Nikon SLR camera, water bottles on each side, purse contents were within a second's reach, adjustable strap had plenty of length. I could go on. Couldn't have selected a better bag.

I have this bag in pink and loved it, but for one major flaw. The canvas fabric picks up dirt and oil extremely easily and it's nearly impossible to clean. I used the bag for a week of travel in SE Asia and it collected dust and dirt (just from normal walking driving -- nothing extreme, no spills, no accidents) to the point that the fabric around the zipper is nearly black. I have tried everything to clean it, finally threw it in the washing machine and no luck. Only some shrinkage around the zipper. A canvas bag in this price range should come with a stain-resistant coating or at least good cleaning options.

Great bag! Bought it mainly for a 2 week trip to Washington DC and NYC, and it held up well between my things and my kids things as well as water bottles (those water bottle holders were a life saver). It's big enough to hold an iPad, wallet, and many other items including water bottles. Deep pockets hold a lot of items, and the bag is very well organized. The strap is adjustable so it can be a cross body at many lengths. Great bag with multi functional uses. I will definitely continue to use the bag for weekends, trips, and outing with the kids!

This is a great bag. My netbook fits in it, which I love, and I love it for shopping and the farmer's market. It's a sportier look, so definitely for more casual events.

This is a really well-designed, and sturdily well-made purse that's perfect for travel, or as a mom-bag for around town. It holds two full-sized water bottles, and still has plenty of room in the main compartment for a book, wallet, snacks, and entertainment. I love the front compartment, which keeps everything organized so I know just where to look to find something, and the fleece-lined compartment is really nice for sunglasses or an iPhone. The strap can adjust to fit on one shoulder or go cross-body easily. I used this bag on a trip recently, and when I got back, my mother immediately borrowed it for her next trip. We both love it. My only regret is that I opted to get the more neutral and sophisticated-looking black, instead of the gorgeous turquoise/green one; black has a dark lining that makes things a bit harder to see than the other, which has a beautiful light lining with cute designs.

Googled "Best Bag for Disney" and this one came up. Did my due diligence and bought it. Very happy I did as it was the perfect bag for a 3 day and 3 park vacation with the mouse. Great storage but not overly complicated where you forget what pocket you put something in. Excellent water bottle storage (2x). Have kicked my everyday backpack to the curb and am now using my Overland Donner as my everyday bag.

I love this bag! It's so functional and I can find everything the first time that I try, which was not the case with any on my old purses. I also find it very comfortable. I can see using it for a very long time. I had a similar style bag by Haiku, but I like this one much better.

Great bag, I recommend it. I purchased it for a trip to UK. It was perfect. The adjustable strap allowed it to fit me well, and the front flap with organization pockets was very handy, getting through airport security and customs. Plus, it looks nice, is lightweight, and resists stains.

I love this bag! I wanted something large enough to put my lunch in during the week for work and I also needed it to be "helpful" during my commute through public transportation. When the bag first arrived, I was almost going to send it back because I thought it might be too small. I'm glad I didn't! It actually holds quite a bit - my lunch fits in with room to spare for a book or two. The handy organizing pouch on the outside holds everything I need for my commute - my train pass, my wallet, phone, keys, loose change. The plus side to all this - it's made very well. It's sturdy, the stitching is strong, and the material can take a beating, and it looks great!

I love this bag! I wanted something smaller than a typical messenger bag yet big enough to carry my stuff. This fit the bill perfectly. Lots of organizing pockets under the flap, spaces on each side for water bottles, sodas or coffee mugs, and just enough room on the inside for everything else. I carry this to work every day. Strap is comfortable. Bag looks good and is put together well.

This is in regards to the 2009 Donner bag with the leather patch on the right side. It is slightly larger than the previous models. Same material as the 2008 model. The big design different for 2009 is that the zippered pocket is now attached to the the pen/pencil/cell phone side to make another expanding pocket under the velcro flap. I think this improves the design since the zippered pocket no longer drops downward and having another expanding pocket under the velcro gives you another stash place for something extra, like a donut or cookie wrapped in a napkin, small toy, whatever. Also remember the side water bottle holders can hold other things like sunglasses, kleenex, hand sanitizer, etc.

I love this bag! It is the new and improved version of the original Donner (which I also own). I like that the bag is just a bit bigger, but has all the same great features.

I love the bag! It is roomy but not too big or bulky. The compartments are adequate, I only wish the interior pocket had velcro or a zipper. This is the third Overland bag I have purchased and I am sure I will buy more. The quality of material and sewing is suberb. This is a very saturdy bad that will withstand daily use over a long period of time and still look good!

Great and versatile bag. Especially love the side pockets where I could put a water bottle. Main pocket area is quite big, so sometimes you have to really dig around for your things, but overall the bag is comfortable. I took it to travel through China and now use if full time at home.

8 years have gone by since I've owned a purse other than the Donner and I've looked a bit, nothing beats it. This is the best version yet. It has space for a water bottle, iPod, phone, wallet, checkbook, sunglasses, a key fob and every thing else I need on the go. It is attractive and easy to wear across the front. I can't imagine ever finding a better purse.

I bought this back for a trip to Mexico, because I had one from a few years ago in another color but wanted black. They improved the features, and the organization is great. It holds 2 water bottles, or baby bottles, which is so handy. It's just got a super-smart design that I haven't seen in any other bag. The strap rubs my neck a little, and I don't remember that with my old bag, maybe the strap is a little different? Still love it!

Great bag! I bought this to take to Disney World and it was perfect. Room for at least one water bottle, my wallet, tickets, gum, etc. It's not too big like a diaper bag and it wasn't heavy on the shoulder. I will use then for traveling from now on.

I bought this specifically for our trip to Disneyland. I wanted something that I could wear as a cross-body and hold a lot stuff, including a water bottle. It did hold a lot, including two water bottles which was really helpful while at Disneyland. My biggest gripe with this bag is that the plastic adjuster that slides on the strap to lengthen/shorten the strap is very poorly placed. I am 5'7" and for this bag to hit me at the hip that plastic piece sits exactly on my shoulder. After 8 to 12 hours of that thing digging into my shoulder (the bag was heavy with snacks, sunscreen, water bottles, etc.) I did not want to carry this bag anymore. Luckily it is pretty unisex looking so my husband did not mind carrying it, and the strap was long enough that it could be lengthened to his comfort. But he did notice that it dug in, too but on his chest rather than his shoulder. Other than that, it was a great bag and met our needs very well.

I have had this bag for about a month now, and it has simplified my life! I ordered if after becoming quite frustrated with a "bottomless pit" bag, and I have been so happy with it. Everything is where it's supposed to be! I particularly like the front organizer section, and the strap that easily goes from one shoulder length to an across-the-body length.
