I travel a lot and I'm always carrying my water bottle, a book, snacks, phone, headphones and more. A regular purse falls short in so many ways, but not this bag! The size is perfect for containing all my stuff. There are two inner pockets (intended for holding wine bottles) that are perfect for keeping a large water bottle upright. It's has beautiful leather straps that allow you to carry the bag crossbody or in hand/over the shoulder. If the bag is not filled to the top, it can be folded over to give a more messenger style look to it. I have the coffee color which is a great name for the black/brown color that is so versatile. The canvas is super durable and the leather is a perfect accent. I love everything about this bag and am so glad I bought it.
