This bag looked so nice so I decided to give it a shot. The colors are beautiful but the leather is very stiff and feels like plastic; although the product description does say that it may soften with use. Disappointed, I returned it!

I can't really say there was anything wrong with this, but I wanted to use it as an evening bag, and when I saw it in person, to me it looked more like the bags you get with cosmetic bonuses. I returned it.

The Kayla clutch is a perfect size for a night out. The leather is high quality and I like the textured reptile look. It's big enough to hold my glass case, card pouch, keys and a few make-up items. The Sand color is beautiful - truly a sand color and will accent many outfits. I also like the wristlet strap so I can slip it over my hand at a buffet.

LOVE this purse! It's roomy enough for my things, including items others wouldn't view as essential. Holds its shape. Oozes class and is beautiful. A bit heavier than I would like, but that's my fault because I probably carry too much in it.

I bought this for a graduation gift for my young niece. She loved it! It's a little small for me but for her it woks great. It's a great purse to carry shopping or if you want something small enough to hold just your phone and keys and lipstick.

This purse is a great size and I love the fact that it has a pocket on both the front and back, as well as the larger storage is the central compartment which has multiple pockets as well to help keep me ‘Marie Kondo’ organized! I really like the crocodile-embossed leather but think it’s too shiny (looks almost varnished) and would prefer a lighter color than the pecan (dark brown), such as a saddle color.

I hadn't heard of this brand before, Brahmin, but I was in need of a new leather wallet (to replace my ten year old Fossil tri-fold, LOL!). Like many, I no longer carry checks, but as a mom, I do have to carry more "cards" – for health and auto insurances, and for shopping membership/discount programs, etc. I'm so impressed with the QUALITY of the leather and stitching, with the number of slots and larger side slips, and that the snap closure really does its job. This wallet folds flat and is functional. Love the richness of the "lagoon" teal blue color, and its gloss finish protects it from scratches. Currently I'm a big fan of Harvey seat-belt purses, but if I ever go back to leather, Brahmin would be my first choice. It does not disappoint.

This is my second Brahmin bag. I still own the first one 25+years later. It's a beautiful, embossed leather similar to this in a different color. So beautifully made and durable. This bag is the same high quality. Beautiful, functional and sturdy but not heavy or bulky looking. I got this in the lightest shade for summer and the color and pattern are subtle and very neutral. The size and strap length are perfect, big enough to fit most items, but not overwhelmingly huge. GREAT find!

Just received this bag. It is cute...love the "orange/blue-ish" colors with the cream. This is my first Brahmin. I'm planning to use this mainly when we travel as I don't carry a lot. As for the price, yes it is pricey since one is paying for the brand name. In the interior there is only the zippered side pocket and there is plenty of room that could have accommodated an open pocket for a phone. Did I mention that it is pricey? I'll try to update after I've used this bag.

I'm very picky about my handbag purchases, lol. I don't switch often so what I buy needs to be versatile and meet certain criteria. I like a handbag that uses fabulous leather and the stitching needs to withstand the test of time - no fraying (this is my first Brahmin bag so we'll have to wait-and-see... looks good so far). I must have a crossbody option (check), must have outside slip pockets (check), must not be "too" wide so that when I wear it as a crossbody it doesn't stick out too far from my body - but must also hold alot without being too large overall (check) and I prefer a traditional smooth or pebbled leather (check). The only thing I'm on the fence about is the color. Although a beautiful blue, I think I may have preferred a saddle color (which, sadly, Zappos does not offer). All-in-all a very beautiful bag.

Perfect bag! I love Brahmin and this does not disappoint. I wanted something that fit into a carryon when I travel and could hold all of my things. This is just what I needed. However, it is extremely difficult to adjust the straps because the buttons are nearly impossible to get out of the button holes on the straps. That was the only problem.

This is a fabulous bag. It’s small and lightweight but incredibly roomy on the inside and I can fit a large wallet, iPhone, tissues, keys, pens, lipstick, etc without a problem. The leather is beautiful. The only problem is it is almost impossible to adjust the straps. I watched a video, called Brahmin for advice, and finally exchanged it to see if another identical bag was easier to manipulate. I don’t know if the button tops are too wide, or what the problem was. Zappos was great about it.

This bag is beautiful, but it is really small. As other reviewers have stated it doesn't hold much. I planned on using it when I travel but it was just too small for that purpose. Since I already some evening bags and clutches I returned it for a similar Brahmin bag, but larger.

If you can be "in love" with a purse, then that is what I am! I never spend this much money on a purse but I am now a Brahmin convert. Not only are the purses beautifully made, they are so functional. No more digging around looking for what I want in my purse. The first time I used it, a woman stopped me as I was walking by her and said "that is a beautiful purse, is it new?" She said over time they "wear in beautifully." So here's to collecting Brahmin purses; they have so many wonderful styles and colors I can hardly stop at one!

This is a really cute pocketbook. The only problem I found with it, was that I was wanting a cross body and even on the last hole it was still too short. Other than that, I found nothing wrong with it at all.
