I've owned an earlier model that felt much more substantial. The material on this bag felt flimsy and flopped when loaded with minimal items

Really surprised by this bag. It's the perfect size, color and weight. So many options to wear it and very very comfortable as a handbag, laptop bag AND a travel bag. I was concerned the material would be cheap looking, but it's VERY nice.

Very good material and comfortable. Can fit a water bottle in it. Will be purchasing another style.

This single strap backpack was exactly what my wife needed to take the stress off her sore shoulder it’s ideal for hiking and just normal urban walking with room for her camera, purse essentials, and even water. We’ve already given it a spin at the museum and it certainly fits the bill. The one thing I would recommend for future consideration is to make one that can be carried comfortably for left handed people as well.

Love this purse! I usually only use backpack handbags but this looked so cute that I bought it and it has not disappointed. It has a lot of room for a small purse and the inside is lined and has two zip pockets. It is featherweight and easy to carry. I don't know how well it will hold up over time but it was not expensive so I don't expect it to be a purse that will do heavy duty.

Pros: Beautiful color, very well-made, Expandable, and that you can either use it in its small size Where the top is folded over, or you can unfold it and adjust the buckles and it becomes a much larger bag. Cons: I needed a bag that was not huge. So if this is in it’s folded-over configuration, There is really only the one zippered pocket that you can access. In order to access any other compartments, you have to unfold the whole thing. Also, it’s kind of a big bag. Bigger than a normal purse I would carry to go shopping. I think this is more for if you’re traveling, and need an adjustable travel purse.

Amazing bag! Plenty of storage and the material is wipeable, which I love. Really stylish too! ?????? Pretty light as well!

Fits everything I need - keys, phone, wallet makeup bag. Lots of pockets. Love the material. The material is wipeable -a big plus for me and I love the design of the bag! Great purchase.

Was searching for a vegan bag, something small, minimal and something just a little different. Love this bag. Perfect size. the material is just the neatest thing.

This is a great backpack overall. Only reason it didn’t get a 5 star on everything are my picky personal things. I was hoping it would be wider not deeper. It is so deep that if you are gonna get into it a lot, which I was with 3 children, it was difficult to find what I needed quickly. But, I would recommend it if you live a slower pace life than I do. It is beautiful and I got tons of compliments

This is an attractive small purse. I like the surf color. However there is only a single outside (zippered) pocket and it is not large enough to hold my iPhone. I can put just a few things there and have to put everything else into the main compartment. I like to be able to have my phone and preferably also sunglasses in an outside pocket, along with my ID. I'm still searching for the "not too big, not too small, just right" purse. For me, this isn't it.

As much as I love leather purses, I use cloth purses so there is less weight to them because I had shoulder replacement. I love this purse. I have a 'make up case' that everything goes in except my keys, phone, sun glasses and cloth wallet. This way, when I change purses, I just have to move the case. Everything fits perfectly in this bag - the make up case and sun glasses go in the large zippered compartment. I pick up the front flap and put my cloth wallet in there. The outside zippered space is for my keys and phone. It's light enough to carry and I LOVE the adjustable strap. I now mostly do a cross body purse. i think it's perfect.

I really really like this bag - it’s almost perfect. I found the attachment to the strap to be a bit awkward - it makes the bag feel like it tips slightly outward. If they would’ve attached the straps to the sides of the purse this problem would be eliminated. That said, I still like it and I’m glad I bought it.
Zappos Reviewer on December 07, 2018
Sleek and fashionable, but a but stiff. Strap is nonfunctional. I replaced w something her and that working. A bit disappointed but not sure why. Maybe it’s just a bit tight for me . I might have liked the bright orange or the two toned one better. Still deciding what I think .

I looove this bag. The saffron color is terrific (it's not bright yellow, in case you're wondering about that - more of a mustard). I especially love the front zipper pockets because the zipper is hidden and you can't tell if they're open or not, as my zipper pockets always are. And the space is somewhat taut so things won't slip out (but still easy to get in and out of. It's the right size to make room for more than just bare essentials but also nicely compact. I saw in the video that once upon a time they had a small black strap sewn across the top of the back of the purse, to help grab it when getting out of the car, etc. I so wish it still had that and may attempt a modification myself, though I know it won't look as polished. So, if you're out there listening, Sherpani (doubtful), please bring back the back strap! All bags should have one, IMHO.

I really like this bag. I bought it to replace a similar one by a different manufacturer that is no longer available. The material and construction appear to be excellent. Unfortunately, the bag is a little too small to hold all of my items - the magnet will not stay closed. I am returning it. I would love to find a similar bag that is a smidge larger.

In the past few weeks I've been trying a variety of bags for a wet weather replacement for a cloth bag I love (from a little company called Mishu). For a while I was carrying backpacks, but it's such a pain to get into them while walking about not to mention that in tight spaces they bumped folks. So now I've been on a mission for the ideal everyday sling or cross body bag, made of a material that resists water. I feel like Goldilocks, some bags are great but look a little more military/tactical than I really want. Others don't have a zipper and I lose things. This bag so far is the one bag to rule them all. Easy to load/unload, easy to carry, good in the rain, and not para-military. It carries a lot, but collapses down to a more sleek bag if I prefer to travel lighter. It's the Goldilocks bag. Love love love.

I absolutely love this bag. My previous everyday bag was Sherpani's Camden. That's also a great bag; it holds more than the Dispatch and you can wear it as a crossbody, but there's a couple things I find annoying: you can't remove the backpack or crossbody straps so it's always just a mess of straps, and the zipper doesn't cover the entire top of the bag (so there's gaps). You can't use the Dispatch as a crossbody, but the backpack straps are removable and you can fully close the top. Although it doesn't hold as much as the Camden it still holds quite a bit. I'll go back to the Camden for traveling, but from now on, this is my everyday bag.

This bag kept me very organized for a week in London. I also think this bag is good looking. What I don't like about this bag is the shoulder strap. It has zero padding and is extremely uncomfortable.
Zappos Reviewer on November 26, 2018
I love this bag! I have it in several colors and have used it for years. The strap is wide enough to be comfortable. There are several different pockets and zippered areas to carry what you need. I bought my most current one because I liked the color for winter.

A purse that feels and looks small but has lots of convenient pockets and a roomy main compartment. Very light. Strap plenty long. Just happens to match my coat - the fig is a nice maroon color. Well worth the price.

I love this bag! I have anther in a cute purple color but needed basic black. It's the perfect size and really convienent to get into. The strap adjusts easily too. Thanks again for great products snd service Zappos!
Zappos Reviewer on November 21, 2018
Such a cute bag! Love the color and the ability to use this bag as a cross body, hand bag, or shoulder. Unfortunately, it is waaaaay too narrow in depth. And there are NO inside pockets that zip. I can't imagine trying to use this bag as a carry on. I usually have a book, tablet, sunglasses, and travel documents (maybe some snacks), and that would be pushing the functionality of this item. Sadly, the cute bag has to go back.
