So cute, but too small! This is a chic bag that seems to be built for travel. I already have a bag I travel so I wanted this to be my every day bag. If it was a couple of inches bigger it would be perfect! I've ordered the Dispatch hoping it will fulfill my space needs.

I am looking for a day pack to carry for travel in Europe. It needs to be comfortable enough to be carried all day as we sightsee and stylish enough to go from a soccer game to a cathedral to a restaurant. I ordered the Baggallini Soho Backpack along with the Knomo London Beuchamp backpack and the Sherpani Dispatch bag. I really liked the crisp look of the black and white Sherpani bag the most. But it was a bit smaller than the other two and my MacBook Air just barely fit in it. I carried it around the house a bit and was worried the unpadded shoulder straps would be really uncomfortable if the bag were worn like a backpack for a longer amount of time. The Baggallini Soho Backpack was the largest of the three. I liked its pockets, the way the opening had a frame that kept the mouth of the bag open or closed, and the travel sleeve that would slip over the handle of a suitcase. I was torn between it and the Knomo bag. Ultimately the Knomo won out because of it's gold-tone hardware and sleeker shape that are a bit more stylish.

I wanted a small casual crossbody purse for use in the summer when going to the park or playground or zoo with my little nieces and nephew. This is perfect and very cute. It holds my full-size wallet, cell phone, keys and sunglass case. The multiple pockets are handy. Very pleased.

This is a cute bag and well-made. I was hoping to use it for an everyday bag this summer, but it actually held less than I thought it would. I kept it anyway to use when I don't need to carry much with me.

Bag was not as pictured. Shoulder strap was not leather as shown for Blackstone. Instead it was same as Blackstone fabric. Would prefer leather.

Wanted to like it but it was too small for my needs. Was meant to be use as an everyday diaper bag to carry: foldable portable potty seat, x2 water bottles, snack bag, my tiny wallet, thin sweaters for when the girls got cold. Very well made however hence the five stars.

I had been eyeing this bag for well over a year - finally took the plunge. What a well made, quality bag. This is my second Sherpani and I can’t speak highly enough of this brand. I bought this in natural and it’s a really pretty tan/khaki. I was worried it would be lighter, thus showing dirt, but it’s a nice golden color. The versatility and options for wear is great! Love the concept and the execution is spot on. For those who like small bags, this is definitely not a small bag, but if in need of the space and functionality, very much worth the purchase!! Would strongly recommend.

I love this bag. It is so versitile! Not too big, but yet good and roomy. Good inside pockets to organize wallet, sunglasses, keys, work badges and much more. I have the large iphone and it fits perfectly in the outside pocket for quick access.

I wanted this purse to work. The Aloha print is adorable. But it was just too small and the long flap compartment was somewhat inconvenient. I ended up finding the same awesome Aloha print in the Sherpani Sadie and that was the winner. Not too big and not too small. If you don't carry a makeup pouch in your purse, the Pica would probably work for you. But if you need just a bit more space without ending up with a huge purse, then I would suggest you check out the Sadie.

I love this purse so far. I ordered the Sherpani Pica first with the Aloha print, but it was just too small for my daily needs. My little make-up pouch just wouldn't go. Then I saw the Sherpani Sadie had the same fun print and was just a bit bigger with a flat base. It's perfect. holds everything I need without being overly huge or bulky. At first I thought the side zip pocket would not be particularly useful, but I've stuck my USB phone charger and earbuds in there and it's great for that.

I got this to use mainly as a backpack. When I asked my husband how it looked, he said, "What is that? A beach chair?" It looks too square and boxy as a backpack. It also sits weird on your back. So I returned it. The color and quality were nice though!
Zappos Reviewer on June 04, 2019
Really like the material, design, size, & attention to detail. Seems high quality. I have the aloha/flowered one & have received compliments!
Sharon from Michigan on June 03, 2019
I returned this because, as stated by another reviewer, the zipper is very poorly designed. It gets stuck when you try to use it. the color and size were perfect though. Sad day. :0(

This is my 3rd Sherpani bag. I keep buying them because: 1) the fabric is strong and resists stains, 2) Lots of pockets, 3) stylish design, 4) I know I'm getting a quality bag for a reasonable price, 5) the bags usually have crossbody option, 6) Zappos always has great selection and fast shipping. I'm confident that my next bag will be a Sherpani as well.

I used this bag recently while traveling and it was great! It is not very big so you have to plan out what you want to take, however it fit all of my needs.
Melissa from Texas on May 24, 2019
This is my 2nd Sadie bag. I absolutely love them! They are the perfect size for on the go. My mom loved my first one so much, I gave it to her and she uses it everyday. This Aloha Sadie was my replacement and it is perfect!
Melissa from Texas on May 24, 2019
Fit is just as described
Melissa from Texas on May 24, 2019
This is a great bag - not too big or too small. It holds everything I need and looks good and is well made. I really like this brand.
Zappos Reviewer on May 23, 2019
was looking for a fashionable "back pack" to use of work and travel. It's everything I'd hoped to find. It's cute, comfortable to use as a back pack and has handles that give it more of a purse look, as well as being well made . I bought the one with the mustard yellow band. I've had a lot of compliments on it and anticipate it will be useful for a very long time.

The color combination goes well with most if not all!!
Zappos Reviewer on May 11, 2019
Love, love, love this purse. It's super stylish and it holds everything that I need. I love the pockets on the inside for my phone. I never have to go digging for it anymore, as long as I remember to put it in the pocket. It doesn't look very big, but surprisingly hold quite a bit. It's a great everyday purse, but would also be wonderful for travel because of it's size and many pockets.

Well, where to start? I love the look of this bag, and I’m a big fan of the brand. But, I should of paid attention to a review that mentioned how heavy the bag is. It’s really heavy. The long strap was so stiff that even my husband’s super strong fingers couldn’t adjust the length. It was as stiff as cardboard. And to compound the disappointment, the small purse featured on the video was completely missing. I was in a huge hurry to take this bag as a carry on, so figured I could live without the additional small wallet thingy. So I had a cobbler switch the cardboard stiff strap to a beautiful patterned guitar strap. Well, sadly, that was a waste of time and money. The purse was just too heavy to be of much use to me. I really blew it by not returning the bag immediately, but I really loved the overall look. Big mistake. Now I have a bag that was really expensive that I’ll end up giving away. Many lessons learned on this purchase.

I’m giving this bag another try because it’s so functional and beautiful. My first one ripped in a few days but Zappos customer service is great and we got it handled and I reordered another one! It’s so great that it can function as a backpack and great when traveling with kids!
Zappos Reviewer on May 02, 2019
I need a functional bag - and I love all the pockets on the Sherpani Sadie. This keeps my necessary items organized; because ladies, you know how your bag can become a black hole. This bag definitely packs a punch for its size.

I was looking for a cute, polished looking bag that would stand up to traveling and being on the go. This seems to be it! It's big, and if you filled it, it might get heavy. But, it will also accommodate extras if needed - you could easily through a compact rain coat in it, or a scarf for a chillier evening. It's not made of boiled wool - maybe the description is from an older version of the product? It's made of painted of canvas, which is quite nice looking, though it will benefit from being broke in to soften it up a bit. Great compartments - the front outside has 4, the two zippered pockets shown, as well as two behind that that are open. Zippered compartment on the back/outside, one in the inside as well. The inside also has two open compartments. The crossbody strap seems comfortable, and is made from the same material as the bag, as shown. I look forward to breaking it in!
