Rated 5 out of 5 by Girlygirl1 My favorite by far!
I have this in maple and love it. I usually like silver hardware but loved this so much that I made an exception. I am so glad because this is a perfect satchel. It is a perfect size and so soft. I am back for the black one.
Rated 3 out of 5 by GHall Awkward handles
Pretty bag but the handles did not work for me. The long strap was oddly attached to the bag on either side versus being attached to the ends of the bag. It doesn't look like the handles both long and short will hold up over time. I returned the bag.
Rated 3 out of 5 by jah61 Great color, OK bag...
I have several B. Mak bags and love them for their distinctive styling and stand out design. I ordered this one in emerald because I loved the color, and I was not disappointed in it. The color is rich and gorgeous; but the bag is nothing special. There's nothing here to make it stand out the way my other B. Mak bags do and I am not a fan of the gold hardware. I am keeping it for the color only (and because I kept it in the box waiting for cooler weather until it was too late to return it) but I wouldn't recommend it to others at this price. Just too costly for an ordinary bag.
Rated 5 out of 5 by CatinGa The Best one yet!
I have ordered several B Makowsky bags over the years, and a few I have sent back as I am used to the original soft glove leather B Mak became famous for. For the money the bag has to be perfect or back it goes! I bought the dandelion for that perfect pop of color for fall. How to describe the color...well not exactly a true yellow, not an orange, but a shade in the middle (kinda like a school bus I suppose). This satchel is a winner and looks very high end. The suede on the sides matches the supple glove leather perfectly and screams rich!
This one is lightweight to carry and I'm also a fan of the new lighter color lining so I can find my goodies in a hurry. Perhaps the only issue I see is that my cell phone (galaxy II) does not quite fit in the cell pocket on the bag nor the ones on the side. Please, Bruce adjust pockets to fit these newer phones. Still gotta give it 5 stars, love, love, love!

Everything about this bag is wonderful (and I am extremely picky about bags). The quality of the leather, the stitching, the style, the size, the weight, and the organizational capacity all come together to make this just-about the most perfect bag to use all of the time.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Bemi Disappointing
This bag presents better on T.V. the leather quality isn't as good as it should be for the price. The suede is also poor quality for the money. The style is good but overall this bag isn't worth the price.

A couple of things make this bag less than 5 stars. I ordered the emerald and the green is beautiful. Not crazy about the fact that the back handles are stitched rather than finished with hardware although it probably makes the bag lighter since it is pretty soft with the leather and suede combo. I'm holding back to see how much color transfer there is since it comes with a warning already although I learned in the past not to wear suedes or deep colors against light clothing and vice versa. Next to a dark coat I don't anticipate issues and this is a fall bag although it could be used now.
