Rated 2 out of 5 by razzabedazz Beautiful but velcro on inside rips lining
I travel a lot and thought this was the perfect slim large airport purse. I was gone 3 days and over the coarse of this time, the velcro on the inside ripped and snagged the halo lining creating little holes. Needs to have better closure on the velcro so it doesn't come undone. 2 starts because it really is a beautiful bag with a great concept. A little tweaking and it would have received 5 stars.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Q-T Very difficult handbag to maneuver!
I found the pocketbook very awkward to maneuver due to the zippers on each side. I used it once and the entire handbag fell upside down as I was trying to reach for my wallet and everything inside fell on the ground. Not a safe or a good value for me! I gave it two stars instead of one because it looks nice but looks aren't everything in this case. It will be going back.

I really like this purse. The size is just about right it fits my rather big wallet, phone, keys, and a few other small things and that's all I really need strapped to me while I chase my toddler around. The leather is nice and it is a good looking purse.

I was so excited to get this purse especially for the protection but when it arrived the metallic coating was worn off some of the edges. I just have to return it because it cost a lot of money to be defective. I am sad as this is a great idea just not a great fabric.

I really like the look of this bag and the leather. The problem for me are the zippers. Having to unzip the bag completely to access items everytime became a deal breaker. I am returning.

I purchased the black handbag. Security (peace of mind) and sophistication.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Zohara Great Bag for 11" Laptop
I purchased this bag for my 11" Dell laptop because of the Halo Guard features, especially the drop protection feature. It is fashionable and high quality leather which is far more beautiful than the usual laptop sleeve. These features made it worth the high price. It holds my laptop (in the main compartment), cords (in the large front mesh pocket) and thumb drives and business cards fit perfectly in the two smaller compartments in front of the large front pocket. I like the security of the double zipper flap which also makes it easier to add and access the contents of the bag.
I am a professional trainer who travels extensively and I use my laptop for my presentations. The quality of this bag makes it perfect for a traveling business professional. A man could remove the tassels and it would be appropriate for him.
This bag just fits my 11" laptop and accessories making it perfect for my needs, however, it would be great if Gili would make a larger portfolio which would accommodate larger laptops and business accessories.
Thank you, QVC and Gili.

I'm always looking for a crossbody that is big enough to hold my daily haul, but not so big that it is bulky or awkward. This bag fits the dimensions profile...almost. I like the way it looks as a crossbody - the dimensions and flat-ish profile are perfect for a tallish, curvy-ish frame. However, the built-ins, padding and floppy pockets on the inside take up a ton of the available space, leaving little room for anything other than a phone, slender wallet and a small lip balm or lotion. The external back pocket also accommodates pretty much nothing. This keeps me very streamlined, but if I need more than my phone and wallet, I'm having to carry a 2nd bag. The leather is divine - very soft and supple. The hardware is a nice weight and feels comparable to high-end products. The tassel and padlock do knock together and clank with every step, so that was annoying, until I eventually took it off. The webbing on the inside is a bit of an odd choice, as you have to flash it every time you open the bag and it doesn't seem to have much purpose (the RFID stuff is in the pocket fabric, right?) The velcro tabs on the pockets, if not perfectly aligned, pick at the webbing and my webbing already looks totally fuzzy and frayed in those spots - a bummer at this price point. The zip around function doesn't bother me, but the zipper is a bit difficult to navigate around the corners. If you need super fast and frequent access to the insides, I'd imagine it could get annoying quickly. It's the best 'luxury' crossbody I've found in terms of overall size and minimalist styling. I think the insides could benefit from some re-engineering, though.
