    REVIEWS & RATINGS

    Cute bag, wears well
    This is a really cute, versatile bag, fits an ipad perfectly. True color, love the leather strap, wears really well. I have taken this hiking several times over the summer, and while its faded a bit ( to be expected in the disastrously hot summer we've had here in Wisco ), it looks all the better due it its "military style".

    Disappointing
    Super disappointed with this bag. It looks really cheap, the material almost appears dirty. Straps are flimsy. Would not recommend!

    Functional Bag
    Love the bag! I've been using it ever since I received it even though my plan was to use it when I travel. Very functional and perfect size as mentioned by the other reviewer. I can use it as a cross-body or a backpack! I took one star off because it isn't easy to adjust the strap as it uses the "stud" mechanism where you push it through a tiny hole. Each time I adjust it my fingers hurt for a few hours. Also I wished the front flap used magnetic snaps instead of buckles. I don't buckle them now but when I travel I'll have to.

    Alternative Bag - Very Nice
    Very nice bag. I was hoping it would be a bit bigger but it was actually pretty true to the size details noted online. There were no instructions on how to convert from crossbag to backpack but I just looked at the Shopbop alternative views and figured it out. I like the charity aspect of the purchase so overall I'm happy.
    Sizing: Smaller than Expected

    Olivia Wilde Messenger Bag
    This bag is a great size. It's not too large where it feels like you are carrying luggage, but not too small either where you can fit hardly anything. It is the perfect size for carrying a laptop computer. It also has an adjustable length for the strap depending on how long you want compared to your height.
