It can be carried with the strap if you’re walking with it! Best bag ever. I LOVE this bag! It was a perfect travel bag for my recent trip. I am so happy with my purchase!. It’s perfect to slip on top of your rolling suitcase.
I am very pleased with the color and style!. I was originally going to order the black. This was IT! Finally! It seems well made. But I saw that this color was on sale for $6. I bought several backpacks and returned them none worked. 00 off. I just got it. I wasn't sure about the color but the price was right. When I received it it was exactly what I had been looking for.
Arrived on time. The sides snap close so no one can really see in the bag, if you'reusing for work shoes that side may not snap close. Vendor also sent a free tassle for the bag which was a nice additional gift. Most totes are great but have no compartments so using is a mess when trying to find something. I'm considering getting another one in a different color. I love that it came with three different sections and the middle section has compartments and can zip to conceal.
Pros: good material, lots of pockets, spacious, straps are comfortable, pocket for water bottle on outsideCons: the metal zipper on the outside pocket in the front is a little bit "jumpy/sticky" just like most big metal zippers, but it's still easy to open. Great backpack! It has 2 hidden pockets that I didn't expect it to have which will come in handy in the future.
Not only is it stylish, but with the anti-theft feature I’ll be at ease that her valuables are secured. Purchased this backpack for my daughter’s upcoming East Coast trip for the summer and it’s exactly as described and as needed.
