Rated 5 out of 5 by NETBOOK FAN Interesting Bag
This is a unique bag. The only thing I don't like about it is the silly travel tag, which I removed. It's for decoration only and has no utilitarian purpose. I bought this in espresso and I love the color. I understand people's comments about the cross body strap, but I personally love it. It does seem casual for the bag, but I love the color and the strap is very comfortable across the body. I typically carry this bag on my lower arm, but when I need to be hands free it's nice to have that option. The inside of the bag is gorgeous--this is the first bag I've owned with leather interior. I really like the flap closure and the zip pocket on the back and the pockets inside are very convenient as well. The thing I like most about the bag is how good it looks--sometimes I catch sight of myself reflected in the mirror or in glass store fronts and I see the bag and I do a double take and think to myself, that is one nice looking bag. LOL!

I have this bag in Ginger and as beautiful as the pictures are, it is even more incredible in person. As a Dooney collector, I am beyond pleased! As a teacher, traveler, commuter, shopper, active girl on the go, I am utterly amazed! This bag is gorgeous and I can tell it's built to last. This is heirloom quality. I love the fact that I can carry it on my wrist when I'm going out or need to grab it as I'm running out of the door, I can carry it on my shoulder, or even crossbody when I need to be hands free! It lets out on the sides to show lovely suede that is either a style changer or gives you even more room. This is a true medium sized bag, in my opinion. Perfect! I really do love the removable strap; it's extremely comfortable. I have many bag straps in leather but they don't breathe like this does and they often cut into my shoulder. This is spot on! Comfortable, convenient, and classy!! This type of leather does scratch, but it is easily rubbed out with the natural oils of your fingers. Honestly, I think it just gives it a unique character. This is the kind of bag that only gets better with age and use. I'm 100% happy!! Thank you, Dooney!

Best Dooney I have ever purchased. The leather is exquisite and its just beautiful! Better quality then any purse I own, and I own a Louis Vuitton. That says a lot! Puts my LV to shame.

I understand Dooney's concept with this bag. Attempting to create a Florentine leather bag that's lighter in weight, but the bag looks really plain and basic. For instance, the handles being sewn down and not attached with the brass rings. This means the handles won't fold down when you sit the bag down or carry it as a cross body. The sewn down handles also make the bag of the bag look strange. I'm sure adding metal feet to the bottom of the bag would not have increased the weigh by that much. I don't like the new little tabs on the bottom.

This bag is simple and elegant. The burgundy color is really pretty. It is nice and dark, which makes it very neutral.
Rated 2 out of 5 by PurseAddict77 Poor Closure Design
I'm so bummed. I really wanted to love this bag. The look is gorgeous and the leather is yummy. I really like the bag with the side zippers down, but when using the shoulder strap, the bag looks so ridiculous and awkward. Without a zipper or more structured closure, the bag looks all lopsided and the suede extensions fold in. I think I'm going to try the front pocket satchel instead.

I wasn't sure I would like this purse when I purchased it. But with the return policy I figured I would get it and send back if it wasn't what I wanted. I LOVE my Dooney & Burke, the inside as well as the outside are beautiful. I was surprised at the size, it looked bigger on TV, thats why I wasn't sure I would love it, but it is just the right size. It comes with a shoulder strap, I haven't used it. Wish the handles were longer, then I wouldn't need the shoulder strap.

Most amazing leather ever. Worth having just to feel the leather (inside and outside) every day! I rated it a 4 because the web shoulder strap doesn't fit with the style of the bag. I will probably never use the strap, but I must admit that the web strap is the classiest one I have ever seen.
