Beautiful bag, until you touch it. I got the cranberry color and it is so pretty. However, the bag feels very cheap, particularly the straps. Also, there's no way it will hold it's shape unless filled with tissue paper all the time. Very flimsy. If this bag were less, I'd probably keep it and toss it after a few months, but I can't justify keeping it at this price.

I loved this bag, but had to return it because the stitching on the handles was broken and fraying. I returned it and order another one. The stitching is pulling apart on the side of this one! Hopefully Zappos will take it back. Disappointed, 2 for 2!

Terrific little bag! I purchased this to use while traveling through Italy and loved it. Cross body strap was super convenient , and though it is smaller and compact it surprisingly has a TON of space! I was able to tote around my necessities easily. Love the back external pocket- perfect phone access!

Love the quality, it's super cute (I'm getting lots of compliments on it), and the cross body strap is the perfect length for a tall girl like me.

The boston that goes with everything! Bought the camel one with match my over-the-knee boots in the same shade. Especially great for cold weather, as a perfect alternative to dull black or navy bags. The leather is soft and thus doesn't hold the shape when empty. Roomy enough to hold iPad mini, notebooks, stationery, cosmetics, etc. The most cost-effective boston I've found so far.

I just received this bag in the Heritage Blue and it's really beautiful. The blue is not *quite* as dark as it appears online, but it is a wonderful color. The leather is nice, and the styling of the bag is absolutely perfect for someone who loves a classic shape and style. I don't need a bag that screams at everyone, but I do like having something nice that I can carry for multiple seasons that won't fall apart. The leather is not luxurious, however, I have other bags that have really thick leather and the problem is that they are heavy even before you put one thing inside of them. This bag is great for everyday use. I got it last night and I've gotten 2 compliments this morning. I'm ordering the brown today.

I love this bag! Received it as a gift, and I couldn't be happier with it. I got it in brown, and the color is great. I'm usually drawn to huge bags, and was afraid this one was going to be too small, but the big inside compartment fits everything I carry in a larger bag with room to spare. Plus, the fact that it zips all the way down both sides means you have a little more room for bigger items. Right now, I'm carrying a huge wallet, a composition notebook, two paperbacks, a bottle of water, my makeup bag, keys, and several smaller items like lip gloss and ink pens. So, if you like large bags, you won't be disappointed. Love the flat handles and the cross-body strap. Seriously, this is my favorite bag ever.

This is a really nice handbag. The leather is soft and the camel color is lovely. It's a good size. It is not too big, but big enough to hold all your everyday stuff. As always, the Zappos purchasing experience was totally painless and the bag arrived in less than two days.

Since I'm not a fan of the gigantic purse, I was thrilled to see this shape in a more practical size. The colors are look great with everything except formal wear. 2 thumbs up for the modern details balanced with a classic shape.

Love this bag! Very sturdy and lots of room. Perfect for cross body wear. I thought it was a waste of space for those credit card slots though, and the key fob should be longer, but there is another open pocket on the other side plus another zipped compartment. Also has an outside slip pocket perfect for cell phones or your sunglasses. Classic looking with out being over done.

I've had this for about 6 months and I still love it. I purchased this satchel in the black leather and it's a bit softer and doesn't quite hold its shape as well as the multi brown one that my sister purchased. It zips all the way up one side and down the other, making it a lot roomier than one would think. I appreciate the thin cross body strap because it makes the bag a bit dressier when worn on one side.

I love my new bag. It's the perfect size (not too big and not too small), the leather is very nice, and it is lightweight. I love the option of making it either a crossbody bag or a handbag and I love how the zipper goes all the way down both sides of the bag to make it easier to find things. I get a lot of use out of this bag already!

This purse is great! It is exactly as it appears in the picture, and the price was a lot less than any other I found. Delivery was right on time, so I'm very happy with the whole experience.

My sister bought this bag in the tan color. I was so amazed with it's sleekness and width. I also liked the way the zipper is all the way down the sides. It is compact and has a slot on the top by the handles that stores my cell phone nicely! Yes, I had to have this purse! So I bought the brown one with silver hardware...I also like simple way it looks...no buckles or bows, just very professional!

What a great bag! It is a little more purple than the picture looks, but still a great color. It is sized just right to hold everything without being big and bulky. I am not a huge purse sort of person, so this fit the bill exactly. This is typically more than I spend on a purse, but it is well worth the money. The leather is very soft but doesn't feel fragile. So far after a couple of weeks of just kind of throwing it into the passenger seat of my car, no scratches yet. I can't wait to get it in another color.

I have always carried large handbags and my back and shoulders payed the price so I decided to go smaller. What a nice surprise with the Fossil Sydney satchel! I can carry all of my necessities and still fit more. I absolutely love the must have cobalt blue color too.

The Fossil Sydney Satchel is absolutely darling. I received it as a gift and I couldn't be more pleased. The color (a rich brown with silver hardware), size, and carrying options have all exceeded my expectations. I would recommend it to anyone looking to add a satchel to their purse collection.

This is a beautiful bag, really impressed with the quality and feel for the price. It is a great size - so many times satchels are huge and this is just a great medium size. I can be snobby about bags so I was pleasantly surprised with this and liked much more than I expected to. As always, Zappos service rocks.

I've been searching for this bag for a while. I saw it in stores and I had to have it. But I waited for it to go on sale at a local store before purchasing it. I got it in a colour that isn't my absolute favorite, but even then, it's still very stylish and I get many compliments. I had gotten it in the green colour. The craftsmanship is very nice. I have no problems with it at all. It's a very sturdy bag that will last me a long time. I like how the bag is flexible, yet keeps it's shape well, so one doesn't have to stuff it to get the "boston bag" kind of look that I really enjoy. I like how it can be both an over the shoulder bag, and a handbag. The inside is nice and super spacious, has a medium amount of pockets, and even a nice little clip on the inside for hooking things to. Like if you have keys, or one of those stretchy retractable badge or lighter clips. It's not the best, but it's a nice perk for a simple looking purse. I highly recommend it now that it has even more colors to choose from. The only thing I would change about it is the colour. (I prefer the blue one or the pink one, personally.) Also, the textures change when you go to different styles of the bag, like the patterns or if you happen to see the shiny leather ones. (usually a gold/silver color) So be aware of that when ordering if you haven't seen it in person, yet. Overall, good purse. Fossil is always a favorite of mine.

I love the look of this bag, but I did not realize it was so big. The bottom measurement in the description was 4 inches, but the sides of the bag bulge out another four inches, making the bag much too big for me. It's also a bit hard to get into without opening the zipper quite a bit down the sides.

I was looking for a bag that was brown. This one is kind of a rich brown reminding me of chestnut color. I like the bag but some things look cheap like the embossed Fossil logo in silver, and the zipper is really rough to open and close: it does not glide easily. I'm not sure it's worth the price.

This bag is obviously meant to resemble a Coach bag: the hardware, small gold logo print and color (similar to "Love Red"). Unfortunately, there is not a lot of subdivision and organization - basically one large cavity. Too bad!

I purchased the Fossil Sydney Satchel and will be returning it. I normally love Fossil because the leather is so soft but this purse was an exception. I ordered the Teal but it was more like bright green. The leather on the side was very different from the front. If this was a cheaper bag then I wouldn't mind but since it was over my budget, it will be going back.

I bought the Fossil tan Sydney Satchel in April 2014. The bag was very cute & fitted exactly what I needed in terms of storage. I had high expectations for this bag as I had often admired the bags many times & thought these were well made sturdy bags with quality. Having used this for only 10 months, the handles started fraying as well as the little tassel attached to the zipper. I'm actually very disappointed with the Fossil quality considering that the price tag of the bag isn't exactly cheap. The color of the leather is also wearing down in certain areas of the bag which is expected for leather after a lengthy period of time but this happened a lot faster than I expected in such short duration of use compared to other handbags I have had in the past. I am definitely returning this. The Fossil staff offer great service in QVB store (Sydney) but I don't think I will buy Fossil again if I had the choice. Highly disappointed with this brand as this is the second attempt from another Fossil handbag purchase with the same issue.
