This bag holds a lot so it is good for traveling but beware --it is surprisingly heavy because of the hardware, so a day of walking with it crossbody and you wind up with a neck ache.

I really like this bag! I's an all purpose bag that holds everything I need in places I know where everything is. It is waterproof.

I love this bag. It is perfect for traveling and has room for everything including a pro sized camera! I only issue is that the zipper on the small front pocket gets stuck from time to time. It is not really a problem since I rarely use that pocket. Overall, I love the style and functionality of the Sydney bag.

Almost perfect. Very capacious without being horribly oversized-looking. Toggle pocket on front is perfect for a phone (easy to access fast). Attached money pouch is fabulous -- just the right length of line for ease of use, and I never have to worry about leaving it behind, but it unclips easily for carrying alone. Pewter is the absolutely perfect neutral for everyday wear with any color. Strap is wide and comfortable. The purse is so light, too. And the zipper becomes easier over time with use, or you can buy Dritz zipper glide for it. Problems? The strap is a little warmer grey than the purse, and the top card pocket had a big hole in the bottom. I just love this purse.

This is one of the best Baggallini bags I've had. I got it for a 10-day trip and it had great places for everything (phone, camera, iPad, wallet, makeup bag). I especially like the large, easy-to-grab zipper pulls and clasp. The inside pockets are wonderfully useful. As with all straps, this one can't be adjust short enough, so I unstitched the end and cut it shorter. I'm ordering the smaller version for every day.

I love this bag, especially the front pockets. I can put my phone and to do list in the flap one and my calendar and banking papers in the zip one. It is not a huge bag but with the two other zippered pockets and the open one on the back I have not encountered anything I needed to slip in there that would not fit. I do not have a notebook...I think you might need a small padded case and slip it in the open side pocket. Not sure. I love Baggallini in all its shapes and sizes...but this is my favorite.

A very nice bag with lots of pockets for anyone who needs to find her stuff in less than ten minutes. The strap is fully adjustable so you can wear the bag around your neck for hands-free shopping, or over your shoulder. My only complaint is the same as other reviewers: the main zipper does not work smoothly. Other than that, I do like this bag.

I bought this bag for a trip to Washington, DC and have not changed to another purse. That was in March 2013. It is great for travel and great for everyday.

I really liked the size of the purse (I like larger purses). Lots of pockets for organizing. The zippers gave me pause. I liked them but they didn't operate very smoothly.

Loving it. A place for everything and everything in its place. The exterior pockets that are different from one another make it for me. When I'm traveling, I'm wishing it was a little bigger -- to carry my iPad. Around town it is perfect.

I used to love this bag until a bought a replacement for mine (which I've finally beat to heck). There is only one inside zipper compartment now. Fatal flaw for me. I returned it. Two is what I have, want and need.

This is a great travel bag! It fits multiple pairs of glasses and an iPad as well as other essentials. Like others, sticky, clunky zippers marred the perfection.

Wow, I love this bag! I purchased it for travel, but I have been continuing to use it since we've come home. plus: comfortable to wear crossbody, lots of storage. Love the black. minus: the zippers could be a bit smoother and there is no use for the credit card slots inside the bag (they need to revamp that part inside). They're not secure, so why bother? Another thing, they have replaced the coin bag and it does not have the clear ID outside the pouch. I really like that, in fact I use an old one from another Baggalini as my everyday wallet. Another plus is that the wallet attaches to the inside of the bag for extra safety. I like that.

I like my smaller Sydney bag, but can't fit my Kindle, sun glasses and wallet without it being overstuffed, so I thought the large Sydney might be the answer--but it was not. It sags and does not hold it's nice square shape the way the smaller Sydney does. And things get lost in the folds of the fabric. I transferred my stuff and it looked and functioned like a bucket bag but worse. Extra pockets didn't help. Just more fabric to struggle with. (Maybe it needs to be attached to the bag better?)

Brands I'd also recommend: I love my Dakine bags large and small. And a Haiku I bought years ago lasted a long time.

Baggallini bags have consistently stood up to the standards they claim plus MY standards! I use 3 different styles for different uses and admit being very "tough" on usage and handling.

Living in NYC I need a functional bag where I can easily access my phone, my Metrocard, and other items without the safety concerns of opening and digging through a large bag. That said this bag is a dream come true. The outside pockets are so useful and I've carried a pair of flats in the main part of the bag. It's terrific for traveling too.

I love this bag! I was looking for a bag that I could easily fit my iPad (full size) in. The iPad actually fits in the front zipper pocket, which makes it really easy to get it into the purse. Also, the front pockets are each about 6.5" tall, so they will easily fit most smart phones. The look is nice too. It looks nicer than my old Timbuk2 bag I was using as a purse for the last couple years.

I love this bag. Baggaillini has such good quality. It just feels like it will last for years. Easy to get stuff (keys, subway card, phone) in and out of the outer pockets. And its comfortable with a cloth (nylon) strap. Easy to adjust the strap if you want to put it across your chest and then back. Strap is not too long for the average size woman. A little more expensive than most totes, but totally worth it. You get what you pay for.

This is a very large bag. It has great compartments and the strap makes it very easy to use as a cross body. If you are looking for something large, this is great. If you want something more regular size, the regular Sydney bag would be a better choice.

Bought this based on all of the great reviews, and was not disappointed! Lightweight, love the pockets. Tomato color is an attractive true red, slightly more muted than product photo.

Bought this for a trip and find myself using it every day. The adjustable strap makes this an easy to use crossbody bag with well designed pockets. The front pouch with a twist buckle is perfect for my cell phone and allows for quick access when receiving a call. Great, functional, and stylish.

Great bag. Has lots of compartments. I took it on a trip abroad and it was perfect for stowing passport, boarding pass, etc. Nice quality fabric. As others say, the zippers do stick a bit but they aren't too bad.

I love my Baggallini Bagg. It is exactly what I thought it would be. One negative is that one of the zippers is a little hard to open and close. I'm hoping after I've used it a little that will slide easier. The other negative is the strap is kind of rough and rubs on my neck.

Just got this bag today. I will be using it for a Europe trip this summer. I am very picky about bags. This one seems the perfect size, good organization, etc. iPad fits perfectly in front zipper pocket. I think it will be a great traveler. The zippers are stiff. I have put soap on them and an hoping for the best. I really like the purse. Some of the hardware is clunky but I like the overall style. Great size; great value.

Love this purse! It is almost the perfect purse! I want to comment on the zippers that everyone is talking about. I just got mine today and was aware of the zipper issue from the reviews. I have heard that if you take a lead pencil and rub it along the closed zipper a few times, zippers work great. I tried it and it works smooth as silk now! No issues. So many large pockets - I have to remember how I organized the thing. Very well made, super sturdy. I got the black as it can be dressed up a bit more. However, know that this is a more casual bag because the fabric is a nice, thick, flat black nylon like - as opposed to a shinier finish that would be more dressy. Works fine for me though as I tend to be more casual most of the time anyway.
