You can say that I am more of a laid back type of girl. I most often than not prefer functionality over style when it comes to bags, or clothes as well. I got a new bag and decided to use it for a few days to see how it will hold up with a cramped schedule. Well, let me tell you now that this leisure bag is everything I expected it to be.
What I Like:
Versitality is what made this bag personally attractive. It can be used for different purposes. It proved to be a good companion on a shopping day. I can carry in it small shopping items without a fuzz. One time, I even had an extra shirt because it was really a hot day. Its flexibility extends to the fact that it can be worn in various ways -- hand held, over the shoulder, and across the body. The shoulder strap is detachable by the way.
I also want to point out that the bag is really comfortable. It didn't bother me at all even if it was fully packed with a lot of things. I think it's because the largeness is vertical wise. I mean the bag is deep rather than being too wide. I find it harder to carry the latter.
It is a good thing as well that this bag is durable because I tend to bring a lot of things with me when I go out. It's made of sturdy canvas material and the buckles and zippers are stable. It simply has the capacity to carry many things. You can actually throw in a netbook inside and still won't have any problems.
I should also point out that this bag is both practical and fashionable. I did say that I prefer functionality, but I also enjoy a stylish bag. I don't think anyone would like an unsightly one. This has proven to be a good casual bag that I can bring almost anywhere without sacrificing style. It's practical because it is efficient.
There are also inner pockets for small important things like car keys. On one side is a zipped pocket and 2 open pockets on the other. Another zipped pocket is located at the back of the bag for easy access for spare change perhaps.
What I Don't Like:
I would have appreciated a hard support at the bottom of the bag. This is the only thing I miss in this bag. Since it is deep and is designed to carry a bunch of things, the bottom tends to sag when full. Other than this, everything else is great.
This bag did not disappoint! I give it a thumbs up for full functionality and style. If you're that type of woman who values practicality and who, like me, tends to drop anything inside a bag, then this is also for you. It's perfect for casual wear, whether in basic tee, shorts, or even a dress! It's also a good companion for light travels.
