I bought this bag to take on my 2-week trip through 4 European cities. It was probably the best thing I could have used for all the tourism! The bag actually switches from cross-body to backpack to side-bag very easily once you get the hang of it (don't try for the first time without putting something in there to help give it some weight). It was INVALUABLE in doing walking tours of the cities (backpack for comfort) to being able to take it into the museums (side bag - because they make you check back packs at the door!)
I bought this bag for a one-day trip where I was flying in and out in the same day. I wanted something sturdy, big enough for a few personal items ,a laptop, water bottle, and comfortable to carry around the city all day without feeling like I’m bogged down. I liked it a lot. One of my favorite features is that the two outside pockets are in places where people behind you can’t really get to the zippers. I was at a crowded event, bumped around a lot, it would’ve been really easy for a pickpocket to help themselves to items in my backpack but the hidden nature of the zippers make it harder.
I have been pondering new crossbody purses for what seems like ever. I like the security and ease on my arms to have my hands ready for whatever. Anyway, this is a great find. Excellent price, excellent quality. Very roomy, might be too roomy for some, but not for me. The crossbody strap might be a bit too long for a person of shorter stature, it's almost too long for me and I am 5'7".
Years ago I had a convertible backpack very much like this one and I was in love. I searched far and wide for something, anything, that was similar- and here it is! I bought many other convertible bags through the years, but they all required you to unhook and rehook straps. With this bag all that is needed to change bag types is the way you grab the straps. They slide quickly and easily making my life so much less complicated. I recently went to a museum where backpacks needed to be worn on the front or carried by hand, but all I needed to do was grab my bag from the top to turn it into a shoulder bag. No need for me to pull over to the side and futz around while my group leaves.
I bought this after seeing two women using it when I was on vacation. I love it. I ride the bus to work and my work heels fit in the bag, along with snacks, tablet, phone, wallet, eyeglass case and more! The canvas material seems durable and I like that it stays on my shoulder! There's no slipping and having to constantly readjust. I got the grey and at least three people have complimented/admired the bag! Haven't used it as a backpack yet, but I like having that option available!
I got this for school and I loved it. The size is very good for books. The color is so nice. It is easy to carry you have to options although I prefer on one shoulder. Very satisfied with the product
This bag is everything it is advertised to be. It’s a little large, especially on a smaller person. But honestly that’s an appearance issue only- the size is so great for me for work and school- throw my water bottle and books and lunch inside plus keys and small cosmetic bag, wallet, phone, and sunglasses- all in a backpack/messenger bag/shoulder bag. Looks good enough for the office but casual enough for a weekend concert. Everyone that sees it wants to know where I got it!
This is the best bag that I have ever owned, even if my uncle said it looked like a horse feed bag. I think it’s super cute and it is super durable. I love the fact that I have wear it over the shoulder or I can wear it as a backpack. I normally wear it as a backpack because I love the convenience of not having my purse flopping all over while I walk around. It’s a little big but it fit perfect because it fits my wallet and my planner with plenty of room.
I really love this bag. It’s a little floppy and has less structure than I usually like, but the pros ourway the cons. It is a great size. Not too big but not to small, fits all daily essentials plus a laptop or books, if need be. The straps are sturdy and easy to switch from shoulder bag, to crossbody or backpack. Feels likes it’s made from very durable material. If you want a multifunctional bag, try this. Would be great as a travel personal item as well.
I LOVE this bag more than I imagined I would. Heavy canvas. Amazing leather detail. I also LOVE the zipper access on the part of the bag facing your body. When you open the package it just smells well made. When I ordered this bag I could not get a a good idea of the size. This bag would totally works for a laptop and a bunch of school books. This is perfect because i bought it for that purpose. I have a Surface Pro 4 and it fit perfectly in this bag. I am also a college student so i use this bag every day for school.
This bag is very spacious. Good to take when your on the go. I took it with me on my trip to Colorado. I have my wallet, a book, eyeglass with case, charger, wet wipes, hand sanitizer, lotion, coin purse, earphones, power bank, make up, lipstick, lip balm, nailfile, vapor rub, tweezers, water bottle Just make sure small items are in another small pouch so you won’t have to flip the whole bag just to find what ur looking for.
I’ve been looking for a multi-function bag and this was the Perfect bag. I had initially bought it to use it during a trip, but now, I’m going to use as an everyday work bag. I love how I don’t need to remove the straps to transition the purse into a backpack. I didn’t need the cross body function, so there was no need to unhook the strap. The purse is comfortable and held a lot during the trip. I had my iPad, iPhone 7+ which can fit into either side pockets, magazine, wallet and small makeup bag and still left plenty of room for a large Smart water bottle.
This bag does the job; it's huge, it looks good, it's very versatile. I think the number of stars you decide to give it really is subjective. For me, it is not breathable and gets very hot against my back. I walked around NYC during the summer and it was really unpleasant to wear it! Yes, I could mitigate that by wearing it as a crossbody, which I did at times when it was just unbearable, but it gets cumbersome because of its longer shape and size, especially when you're carrying water bottles and jackets. And as some have mentioned, you can't just pull it on and off like a backpack; you have to navigate the straps to do so, but I'd guess you'd get that with any convertible bag.
Love the adjustable straps. Perfect for someone like me (a college student) to carry an iPad and some light essential books/pens/glasses/wallet/water bottle. I love its utility so much I could care less how it looks! I can definitely see myself using this when traveling. It's a bit more soft and slouchy than in the pictures.
This puts my other bags to shame. I use this for Disneyland trips and traveling. The zippers on the front and back are easy access for a few things I need and the straps are so comfortable I can wear it all day and not feel straps rubbing or pinching. The backpack to shoulder to cross body switch is quick and easy. I had it with me in the rain, and this bag wasn't even phased. My stuff inside stayed dry & the bag exterior wasn't affected at all.
Great product- very comfortable to wear and to carry whatever you need in. I'm always looking for bags like these that are just the right size and can be worn cross body. Great for both work and day-to-day adventuring.
Really worked well for me during my travels. A multifunctional bag that doubles as a purse and a backpack! It’s also much more stylish that your typical ‘backpack’. The canvas makes it very easy to just wipe off if anything gets dirty. Also has four small zipper pockets to store little things. I finally found my new travel bag
Two of my friends have asked me where did I get my purse LOL! I’m a new mom and this bag is perfect , when I’m with baby I use it as a backpack and when it’s just me it’s a purse . The fabric is durable and easy to clean . I also like the straps they are super comfy
This bag is absolutely perfect. The fabric is canvas and very sturdy and well made. It is large but not too big to be used as a purse and not too small to be used as a bag for books and such. I love the asymmetry and quality of this product and am so glad i made this purchase.
Is not a bad quality bag, it just doesn't quite look as I thought it would, specially considering that it retailed for £134. I'm glad I didn't pay full price for it, although I feel I could have gotten something more stylish for the nearly £40 I paid for it. It's best quality is indeed its size, the pockets and their placements. As a backpack and shoulder bag it works OK, but the crossover fit is not good, completely shapeless. I feel that a suede-like fabric would have elevated this bag. Fabric is similar to denim in look and texture. I don't think I can return it because it was on a big sale and I'll use it to uni/work. Just wanted to clarify for anyone considering buying something that is both multipurpose and stylish that this bag does comply with confort, but definetly not with style.
It's OK. It's functional and does what it's supposed to.
But it's not black.
It's charcoal and the straps/trim are brown.
Don't bother if you want a black bag.
I’ve looked at the video, looked at the reviews, and haven’t the faintest idea how to convert it to anything. I’m sure it’s a decent bag but a sheet of instructions wouldn’t go amiss. Also I bought grey but, unlike the photos, it’s taupe and the straps are brown. Seems good quality.
I ordered the Vera bag, but when I received it I was disappointed to find the zip was faulty. However, I emailed the company to inform them and immediately had a reply. I received an apology and a replacement bag, but when I stated that actually I preferred a refund
I was given this without question. I was really impressed with the courteous, helpful and prompt reply from this company. I would purchase from them again.
I ordered a Grey bag and this is what I received. Be aware that when they say Grey they mean Brown. If you are OK with that go for it !!
