When I opened the box that contained this bag, I couldn't believe how big it was.
Online measurement: 11 1/2H x 11 3/4W x 3 5/8D.
My measurement: Bottom width = 12"; Top width =19"; Height (middle of the bag) = 12"; Depth = 6 1/2"
I can't get over how ridiculous this bag look on me. It looks like the bag is carrying me. :) After the initial shock, I examined the bag carefully. The craftsmanship is very good. The bag is well made and the leather is supple. The color (warm sienna) is pleasing, and very easy to go with different outfits. The inside of the bag is fully lined and has both a zipper pocket and a split patch cell pocket. The bag has a zipper top which I like a lot. I do not like totes that only has a magnet closure. Things fall out easily and if you are in crowded areas, it's an easy target for thieves. Another nice thing about this bag is its two hidden front and back exterior pockets. In the picture the small front flap with a zipper can actually be opened (closed by hidden magnet) and you will discover a roomy front pocket. Same thing in the back of the bag. The zipper is just a decoration.
So for those of you non-petites, I highly recommend this bag. I think $328 is a good price for the quality and look. I had Bryan hold this bag for me to see how it would look on a 6 foot tall person (he resisted at first, but couldn't stand my nagging, and gave in.) The bag looks very attractive on a taller person. (Sorry, no picture to share, you wouldn't think Bryan would allow me to take pictures of him holding this bag, would you?) For me, this is no-doubt a return. Kind of sad, but I think I found my dream bag after all.
The bag comes in color "blue sea" as well, which obviously is in higher demand than warm sienna. The expected ship date for the blue sea is currently May 21st, 2012.
