There are of inner compartments plenty, some with zippers. The silky fabric appears a bit flimsy but time shall tell if it holds up well. The outside has a zippered compartment using one side and a little compartment for sunglasses or small items on each of the narrow sides. Because it is canvas, it could be washed. At least theoretically. I haven’t washed it however but washing by hand ought to be fine. Color came out exactly as depicted.
Strap is easy to adjust and isn’t wearing out (I often shorten it to hold off the trunk of my chair, then make it much longer again to use as a cross-body bag). I really like all the outer and inner pockets. It fits a typical compact umbrella (just like a Totes brand one) with plenty of room for my wallet, keys, and cliche female purse stuff. Color is usually a bit more reddish than in the picture, but it’s still a nice maroon/mahogany tone – not bright or neon toned. Solid building, there is nothing tearing or ripping, no stiching is coming apart.
I believe the compartments and pockets provide it a nicer, unique look. It isn’t plain and boring. My only complaint with the compartments,, isn’t with them. It is with myself! I tend to get into a store, stay my car keys in a single and ignore where they are put by me! I have to look in each place looking where they are placed by me. Someone more organized will not have this problem! The pockets (actually on the sides) are large enough to carry cell phones.
The strap is longer enough that I could wear it as a cross body and it hits just below my hip, which is what I needed. I was worried about being able to fit everything I required after reading reviews, but it is perfect! I can bring a paper back, sunglasses, my phone, makeup, my snacks and wallet without it being overstuffed!
It is very lightweight, but beautifully made. I was surprised to observe how beautiful it is truly. It has therefore many pockets that I could make use of one for my cellphone, one for sunglasses, one just for tissues, one for lip glosses, one for my keys simply, and on and on! No more digging for things that are all mixed together somewhere at the bottom of my purse.
It’s beautiful – nice color inside and out. It looks very elegant and professional. The workmanship looks good, all of the stitching looks solid and tight. I had been very, extremely picky with this present, actually bought 2 various other totes and got them back when I found this online. It zips therefore the laptop, cell phone and any other valuables could be safely stowed. Interior pockets for phone and another wallet or device. Her notebook is 14 which is large plenty of to handle it. Consider the laptop out and pack it for a weekend trip.
