Travelon Large Front Pocket Crossbody
Love this bag
I have this in black and absolutely love it!! Finally I have an organized purse! It is so light weight even with all my items in it. I just ordered the chocolate, and the flowered lining gives such a nice pop of color. Thanks travelon!!!
The Organizational Purse
I ordered the black purse (because the chocolate bag with the orange zippers was no longer available). The bag is great and contains so many compartments for easy storage of everything from your phone, a kindle, an I-pad and a I-pod if you choose. This bag also has a section that is lined nicely for items that are easily lost, in a regular bag, the lining keeps it all in one compartment so it is easy to find. I really hope they continue to carry these bags. * Just a note (because it doesn't show on the pictures when ordering): The black bags interior is a dark tan color with teal blue flowers as the pattern. I wish the black bag came with dark red with pink flowers - but its dark tan with teal.
Better than F08938 and pleasantly surprised
I originally wasn't sure about ordering this purse after having F08938 Travelon Crinkle Nylon 3 Compartment Shoulder Bag w/Zipper Accents. But, then it went on clearance, and I was okay, I'll try it. I have F08839 Travelon Nylon City Messenger Bag with Front Pockets which is exactly 3" larger than this bag. I have my items grouped into zipper pouches, so they are pretty organized. However, the compartments in F08938 were too narrow (purse depth 2") and after putting my things in F08938, the bag was bulging when trying to use all the compartments, so there was no way an iPad or 7" tablet would fit. I was ambivalent about ordering because I feared the design of this bag, that it would also have the same issues when trying to use all the compartments. This bag has 27.5 linear inches of room versus F08839 Travelon Nylon City Messenger Bag's 30.5 linear inches. The fit is just right for a woman who may carry similar items and has room to spare. I have: Pouch #1 - lipstick, lip gloss, cold sore ointment, hand lotion, band aid kit, nail clipper, travel medicine, eye pencil, compact powder; Pouch #2 - battery powered travel charger, Uniden travel charger, purse hook, ear buds, USB cables; Samsung Galaxy Nexus cell phone; Baggallini pouch - money and change; business card holder - credit cards, insurance cards, and store cards; checkbook, gum and mints; and my sunglasses in their zippered case (this was a real test item since it is not a flat item). As for wallets, you can use a wallet in this bag, but a thick wallet will impose upon the other compartments causing difficulty in use especially if you have a bulky sunglass case. If you must use a big wallet, I recommend F08839 - Travelon Nylon City Messenger because it will handle the bulk better because of its 3" depth. I could use my checkbook clutch in this bag as an option. And even after putting all this in the bag, there are still available pockets and room for an iPad, another tablet or both. I recommend this bag or F08839 Travelon Nylon City Messenger Bag for a mom who needs to be hands free and carry a few things for herself, her husband, and the kids. It could use a few more card slots, but the size is sufficient for everyday practical needs.
I love a cross body bag for travel but so many of them are too small to hold everything I want at hand on the plane. This one is perfect for my phone and Kindle and has great organization for all of my other necessary items. Fits easily under seat when it needs to be stowed and the fabric is tough enough to resist dirt and scuffs. I don't bother with a wallet because this has plenty of slots for credit cards. I also appreciate the slim silhouette because it looks more flattering on a cross body bag than the more bulky styles. The contrast pop of color on the trim is a cute addition without being too much.
Love the bag; hate the strap
I love this Travelon bag. But what is with the cheapo strap? I have better straps on my lunch bag. You should have gone with a thicker, better quality strap, maybe a strap made of seat belt or similar to a belt. Very cheap....
Light organized, and cute-doesn't get much better than this! This is the perfect bag- more colors please.
Please bring back!! I was saving up for it, and today, when i went to check, it was all gone *sad*
WHAT A BAG!
I love the Travelon bags; this is my fourth. As soon as I took the bag out of the box, I have been using it. These Travelon bags are sooo roomy! This is the bag I use when I go shopping and it holds all of my essentials. Yesterday, during our snow blizzard in New York, I was so happy to have my Travelon bag because I was able to bundle up and use my umbrella without worrying about my bag slipping off my shoulder, and the bag stays close to your body. I would recommend this particular Travelon crossbody bag. I originally wanted the color green, unfortunately it was sold out. I thought I settled for the brown with the orange trimming only to find, it matches well with my coat and hat and I've received a number of compliments. I really like this bag and highly recommend it. :-)
Very happy with my purchase. It has so may pockets that I'm still trying to decide how to use one of them. It lays flat against my body and I love that it can be worn cross-body for security. Great for travel!!--but I'll carry it every day for a while. This is about my fifth Travelon bag, over a period of many years, and I've loved them all.
I received this bag today in black. I can not believe how much room it has and the compartments to keep everything organized.The bag is sleek looking for it's size. It's even better than I expected. Thank you Travelon you hit this one out of the park.First time I will know where everything is without digging for my keys,lipstick,wallet, etc.
I just received this bag in the Bordeaux and couldn't be more pleased. I have a rolling duffel and a tote from a popular designer in what was called a Merlot color and this bag matches exactly with them. The amount of pockets are amazing, one even holds not only my tablet but also my 10" Netbook and is padded enough for security. I just went to order another one in black but looks like sold out. Hope these come back.
Travelon is the best
I have a lot of handbags. Over 40 I guess. I own about 8 Travelon. I just can't seem to get enough of them. Travelon has a lot of pockets, is light weight and sturdy. I think the only thing I don't like about it is I don't carry enough junk to fill it. When I travel I always take my cross body Travelons and put everything but my kitchen sink in them. The center pocket is usually perfect to carry my tablet and I put my charger in one of the other pockets. I still have lots of room for everything else. With it being so flat and light weight I usually put a couple more in my luggage. Please make more WITHOUT THE MESH inside zip pocket. The mesh seems to snag most everything when you are taking stuff in and out of the section, that's the only improvement I would make if it were my product. RFID is the best invention yet to wallets and handbags. Keep up the good work.
