Rated 3 out of 5 by Adee Rigid strap
I really like the bag, the leather scratches easy but I'm not hard on my bags so it was ok, I like the strap, not cheap looking like what other reviewers were saying, the only problem was getting into it, those handles just gets in the way, they are stiff/ rigid, it would've been ok if they bend a little bit like my Olivia bags. I'm sad that I'm sending it back. I got the Bordeaux color.

This beautiful handbag has rec'd some unfavorable reviews but for me it is Perfect! I chose espresso which is deep & rich, and the strap is tonal with the bag. In love with this color combination paired with the paladium hardware! It has the WOW factor! The strap can be removed to present a more polished dressy look, but I prefer it attached for the chic on-trend look and the comfort & versatility. LOVE the web strap! I have plenty of zip zip satchels with fold down handles but when you want a standout bag that you can grab & go quickly I prefer these sturdy but soft leather stand up handles. For me they do not get in the way. The weight of the bag is fine for me as well as the size. No complaints. When you look inside and see & touch the buttery soft leather trimmed in brown suede it not only smells delicious but makes this bag such an elevated style! Again the WOW factor! I prefer the interior pockets to be one zip & slip, and on the opposite side two deep slips - home run there! The zippered pockets have high quality black Italian nylon lining and the slip pockets are soft leather. Personally I like that combo. If i have something with rough edges I just use the nylon lined pockets and don't worry about it. I am slightly (okay ....completely) obsessed and will be ordering another color soon. My only dilemma will be deciding what color!
Rated 4 out of 5 by acekcs BEAUTIFUL BAG but ...
I ordered this in the red and it's absolutely stunning. The color is rich and saturated and the hardware is excellent quality. I only have two criticisms: 1.) I wish they had designed the handles to fold over and lay flat because they kind of get in the way when you want to get into the bag, and 2) the cross body strap would have been nice in red leather to match the bag rather than nylon (which is good quality however and not flimsy). Other than that, it's a lovely bag and I'm glad I bought it.

This is my third bag in this leather and I love it. Both of my others have the slide closure, The leather is so beautiful and light and has no pebbling. The zipper is so easy to slide open and closed. I love that the inside pouches on this one are deep. The strap is fun and allows the bag to be a bit more casual when attached. I got the red and the color is very vibrant. Could not be happier.
Rated 3 out of 5 by DealLover Can't Get Past...
Agree w/one of the reviewers... The bag is pure luxury, very well made (I got my 1st Dooney for my b-day last month, a Zip Zip) but I too can't get past the handles not folding so I returned it. Really love the natural & how it will go w/everything. Also, I HAVE TO HAVE A ZIPPER in my bags. Always. Please Sue, tell Peter to make this bag w/the handles that can b folded!

I bought this purse in Elephant from Dooney. It was beautiful and I loved it. I am very careful with my stuff too. I had the purse for a week and just sent it back. It stratches very easily. There's no rubbing out the marks either.

No words can describe this Toscana Domed Satchel! It is so LUX and RICH! Very classy, High quality hardware on the bag. Subtle Bone like color leather interior and I received this gorgeous bag in Ginger. It's a few shades darker than the Natural. It is on the pricey side but this bag is truly a head turner! Peter Dooney, what a timeless creation!!
Rated 4 out of 5 by moochied Fold Down Handles Please
Very difficult to rate between 4 stars (Good) & 5 stars (Excellent). It came down to price. At $488.10 w/ S&H plus tax, it is Good. In this price range, an Excellent rating would have required that the handles be designed to fold down. And that the outside & inside zipped pockets also be lined in leather like the interior of the bag. I ordered the Elephant color & the web of the strap happens to match that color beautifully. iPhone 6s Plus fits in any of the slip or zip pockets. iPad Air 2, clutch purse & much more can fit in the roomy interior. Perfect top opening. Gorgeous hardware. The new "feet" do not mar anything & seem more stable. So much beauty, but I can't get used to the handles not folding. Sadly, I must return. But at least I can keep using my faithful old Dooney cross body w/the skinny leather strap.
