I have had this bag for about 1 month in Cordovan. I have only one negative criticism: as gravity settles the items inside the bag or pocket, it becomes difficult to seat the male tab of the twist closure on the front pockets because when you push the flap (female hole) onto the tab, the leather naturally folds and makes turning/sealing the twist impossible. I have had to prop my cell phone, carried in the smaller outside pocket, vertically to give the mechanism a "Stage" to work against. The leather is rich and beautiful, although it "wears." I find it comfortable to carry, the strap is wide enough so that it does rest comfortably on, rather than dig into, my shoulder/neck. I have not found any use for the zipper compartments in the front, but the zippered "organizer" pocket in the rear of the bag is handy (although I continue to use/carry a wallet too).

Bought a Fossil Purse for a gift and it came on time and everything was as described on the website. The website was easy to navigate and the shipping was quick. Great Service all around.

I like the size, feel, color and look of the fossil stanton traveler. It's a slim style. There is a lower zippered compartment, about 1/2 way down on back containing credit card holder slots . Wish there were a pen holder slot, too. The main zippered compartment is deep with a brown interior. It does not not expand. On the back inside-lining is a medium zippered pocket. Does not extend all the way to the bottom, which is good in my opinion (again, deep pocketbook). On the front inside lining are 2 pouches, cell phone size. (Wish there was a key clip holder.) The front has 2 pockets hidden by flap closer w/ twist clasp. The larger back pocket extends 3/4ths top to bottom. A mini ipad fits perfectly there. In front of that is a lower, expanding pocket about 2/3rds top to bottom, and then there are the 2 vertical zippers on each side of the front of this compartment that, when both unzipped you could place a mini umbrella if you wanted. Goes all the way through. Overall I like the bag. It is well made and is a beautiful color. I gave it a 4 for style cause I wish it had a few more detailed features. I would've preferred pen holder and key holder over front panel zippers.

I've been waiting for the aqua to come back in stock for a while, and I just received it! It's a gorgeous color for a purse, not too bright. There are so many pockets and compartments, plenty of room for your everyday items! The cross body style is comfortable. I'm so happy with my purchase. It's my favorite Fossil bag I've ever owned.

This purse is worth the price. I have been carrying it now for almost two months and it just keeps getting better and better. I ordered this along with a very similar crossbody from the Sak and while the other one had just as much 'cute' factor (and exactly a lot less) I didn't keep it because the quality and organization on this bag is just so much better. Both bags are made of nice leather, but I think I made the right choice as the leather is just getting better and better. The sizing is perfect, it's very moderate--not too big not too small and carries an amazing amount of stuff. The strap is adjustable, one thing I would mention that you can't tell in the picture, the canvas strap is actually covered in leather on the top side so this bag does not look as casual as some newsboy bags might. Love it!

I bought the Stanton Traveler because it was the closest thing I could find to my old Fossil purse that was finally falling apart after nearly daily use for 5 years. This one might be even better with plenty of pockets, room for a book, gorgeous color. The leather does seem to scratch up a little easily, but I'm loving everything else about it.

I absolutely love this bag! I bought one last December in black for trips to New York and Paris. the multiple compartments make it so easy to organize my belongings. the weight of the contents is nicely distributed so it didn't cause my shoulders to ache after long walks through the city. It's also the perfect travel bag because some of the inner pockets would be hard for a pickpocket to get to and the cross-body feature allows it to hang safely and comfortably in front of your body. I was so pleased with it that I just purchased one in saddle brown for the summer. the leather is soft and top quality and the lining is top notch and durable. I highly recommend this bag.

Very nice purse even though pricey...leather is the perfect color and supple and good weight ... interior and exterior pockets are functional and love that it does not have a lot of harsh metal trimmings. Just wish the little fastener on the front flap was a bit bigger to make it easier to close up, but, am overall very happy with this bag. It has a comfortable crossbody strap. I am tough to please when it comes to purses. And, I LOVE Zappos!

I have been using this little gem for about three weeks and absolutely love it. With the spacious pockets inside and out, I can stay organized and keep things neat. I would encourage anyone needing a quality and stylish bag like this, to go full steam ahead.

I had my eye on this particular bag for quite a while, finally ordered it, and am happily using it as my main, everyday handbag. It's perfect for me, holds everything I need, and is not too heavy.

This bag is wonderful! Because of all the pockets I am never digging through it unable to find something-which often drives me nuts! The leather is soft and supple and it lays smoothly, not bulky or awkward at all.

Very soft leather and perfect amount of space to carry small items and an e-reader! Nice that the strap adjusts well as I am rather short. Just need to remember which compartment I put things in.

I love this bag! The leather is beautiful! I also ordered the Stanton Top Zip, but found that one too large. This bag is the perfect size. I also like that the cross body strap has a slide buckle.

I love this bag! It is adorable and a perfect size for running out with a few things plus a book. The only drawback is that the zippered opening is a bit narrow. But I liked it so much that I ended up buying the bigger version Stanton Zip Top as well.

The purse was as nice as I thought it would be. It is a good size for me and very comfortable to wear cross body. The different compartments are perfect for the items I carry with me.

I've been a long time Fossil fan (watches and wallets) and this purse lives up to the quality of brand. It's my first purse purchase from them and I'm already tempted to buy more. I bought the Fir Green which has a rich, deep color and want the Saddle now. There are several pockets to organize all your things; large wallet, keys, chapstick, lotion, pill container, gloves, eyeglass case, etc. Despite shoving my whole life in this purse, it still doesn't look packed. It stays slim and everything is easily accessible. I guess my only complaint would be, not about the purse itself, but about the way I like to keep things. I keep my keys on a carabiner that I clip on the metal loop where the purse strap attaches to the rest of the purse, but there isn't enough 'loop room' for a carabiner to clip onto so my keys have to sit in the main compartment instead. That however is minor. I love this purse; perfect size and many pockets for organization.

Love this bag! It's the perfect size and has super convenient pockets for easy retrieval of keys, cell, etc. The leather is oh so soft and feels to be great quality. I ordered the Espresso since I was in dire need of a good brown bag. I've always been a loyal Fossil customer, but I typically do not spend so much on one bag (I usually buy KeyPers or hit the outlets). I've never had a Fossil bag that didn't hold up for years, so I thought it was worth the splurge. I also ordered the Explorer Hobo in black, but the Stanton has the smooth, waxy leather that I prefer.

I took this bag to New York. I was there one week before Super Storm Sandy hit the East Coast. My first time in New York. Manhattan to be exact. It was the most perfect bag for my trip. Anywhere from going to The Plaza, Rockefeller Center, the top of The Empire State Building, Brooklyn for pizza, as well as the Subways of New York. Perfect!

I have been a Dooney & Bourke snob for about 15 years, but they have very few cross-body styles I like. I had a lot of travel scheduled, so I bought this, in the lovely color which I call oxblood, and they call cordovan. No matter. The fact is, it is roomy, comfortable to wear, and so stylish. I am resisting the urge to buy one in every color.

Love this purse. I've been looking for a travel bag for months! Really thought I was going to have to design my own. The size is perfect, cross body strap is a good length and width, there is lots of storage and it includes a built it wallet. I got the cordovan and I love the color! Very rich looking with nice smooth leather.

Overall great bag. Could use better pockets in the wallet portion, but interior pockets are perfect. Good leather quality, relatively comfortable strap for a cross-body. I would definitely recommend for a versatile well made bag.
