Rated 5 out of 5┬áby ShoeQueen316 What a steal!
I eyed this bag from the moment it hit stores and couldn't take my mind off of it! Unfortunately I couldn't justify the price before Christmas but day after with the sale and ADDITIONAL 30%? How could I resist! What a beautiful color for all season. The short handles are great for wearing on my arm or shoulder and then the long strap is a great length for that go-to bag to sling along wherever, without being too long that it interferes with walking! I know this will be ideal for traveling (easily tuck a clutch inside and so much more room). There are two small pockets inside and then a large zip one, giving it just enough compartments. Currently I have a wallet, book, pair of shoes and makeup in the bag and still plenty of room left.
I'm excited I won't have to worry about it showing much dirt either. Highly recommend!

Rated 3 out of 5┬áby bt0101 Straps were a deal breaker :/
Like most of the reviews, the leather is buttery soft and the color is beautiful. The straps were a deal breaker for me, however. The quality of the straps were sub-par, and like the previous review, the design flaw is that you can't use the short handles to carry over your shoulders, and the longer strap is too short to use cross body (and even seem a little flimsy to use).

Rated 3 out of 5┬áby PenName the color is nice; the quality is sub-par
I love the color of the bag in person. I also love the holding horses design details, such as the horse logo rivets and so on.
Unfortunately, the flat bottom won't stay flat (there are no feet or structural piping to really hold its shape, nor any material to keep the bottom flat), and it is clear the straps will not comfortably carry much weight. The shoulder strap is an awkward length, with just a rectangle of extra material in the bag's main color for "padding. The shorter handles are too short to slide on one's shoulder, and too narrow and hard to be comfortable carrying by hand with any amount of weight in the bag. With just a few books the bag will become awkward and hard to carry comfortably. If the straps and bottom had been designed and produced better. I feel this could have been a wonderful bag. For a satchel style bag, it is not going to perform the way the average person needs it to.
