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.

Color was gorgeous, just as pictured, and I loved it. But I am too small (5'1") to carry such a big bag which I wanted to use as a cross-body. I sadly had to return it. But it's truly gorgeous!!

I wasn't sure if I wanted to keep this or not, but I have decided to because I bought the little wallet and it doesn't hold everything. I keep cards in it that I don't use all the time just so they're not laying loose anywhere.

This is my second Brahmin bag and I went with a darker color this time around--just for a change. The first bag has held up so well as a daily purse for 2 and a half years, I finally felt the need for something different. The Graphite color is more of a deep, deep brown than I anticipated, I was hoping for more of a gray tone, and the gold accents are bright but not distastefully gaudy so it's a keeper. It's dark enough to be as versatile as a black purse, but it is not the same old same old. I've spent $$$ on leather purses before, but the crocodile (or alligator?) leather of this brand holds up to wear so beautifully that the cost is manageable. The interior pockets are thoughtfully designed and I love that I have a zipped compartment to hold my car fob as well as a sturdy hook to attach my house keys--I never have to fumble for these items and I never worry where they are. I only change out my daily bag on those special occasions when something smaller is better, but I find I'm always wondering where I can put the essentials and how did they fall out, so the peace of mind the Brahmin bag gives me is priceless. This one is about 3 inches wider and 2 inches taller than my first, so I will use it more for travel and business as it will carry my stuff with style and class. The size makes it a little heavier on my shoulder, to explain my comfort rating, but I find cross body bags don't look good on me. Love it!

I bought the pink/brown "blossom" set of wristlets for a friend for Christmas. They're very pretty and the sizes useful. Buyer beware: the set comes with just one strap (the pink color) which I suppose is meant to be transferrable to the other two pouches. That's fine, but the pink strap doesn't look quite right with the gold and darker brown leather. I'd like to receive these as a gift myself!

Just a beautiful bag!! I have been looking forever to try and find a good belt bag that would fit, could work also over the shoulder or crossbody and doesn't look like I am going for a hike. This fits all the requirements and is also very beautiful. So happy I found it. The price is a little high since you can get a much larger bag for the price but it was definitely worth it. I got the dusk color and it goes with everything. Zappos is fabulous as always.

I bought this in Pecan and it is beautiful. I would give it a five star but the credit cards go in vertically instead of horizontally my guess, to save room and that is why I love it, small compact but does the job
