A85871 - Maxx New York Patent Trimmed Signature Jaquard Satchel
Big Bag Love!
If you love bigger size handbags, this is a treasure!! It fits everything comfortably but isn't quite tote bag size. All the pockets are roomy. I am not encountering any problems with the magnetized snaps that some people have reviewed badly, and I haven't lost anything in those smaller size pockets such as my cell phone or asthma inhaler. I just wish it was done in leather instead of plvinyl handles. The handles are softening up a little, but I have to have a big bag and this bag absolutely is terrific and the red is candy apple red - perfect for summer!!!
I bought the brown and black as Christmas gifts. They look very nice and seem well constructed, although a little stiff. I was tempted to keep them for myself, but have more handbags then needed. LOL
Pros and Cons
Pros- Like the basic design and love all the compartments and pockets etc.., The red trim is very pretty . Like the basic "look" of the bag.
Cons- It is rather stiff and unyielding. The material part is a yucky beige-greyish color that is not very attractive IMO. Would have looked soooo much nicer with color coordinated material to match the trim. It is rather bulky also and side pockets are hard to line up and snap. Don't think I would trust anything important in those side pockets.
Not sure if I am keeping this or not . But that is my impression of this bag so far.
Measurements are wrong
I don't know what kind of ruler they used but it isn't nearly the size they say. The top of the bag is only 12" across and 2.75" wide. It is only 11" high if you measure from the middle of the bottom. I bought this'd to tote files and lunch to work and I was misled!
I really like it
Just got it yesterday and thought this is really big, maybe too big. Then I started putting my stuff in it and I really like it. There are lots of pockets for my things to stay organized. My 21 year old daughter just said its really cute and she never likes things that I like. Remains to be seen how it holds up, really liked a b. m. but that quickly fell apart. Hoping this one is as great as it looks.
This is my first Maxx New York Handbag and I LOVE IT! I was looking for a everyday bag with alot of compartments. I saw the bag online and immediately ordered it. When i received the bag it was bigger then I thought and I was VERY PLEASED! It's BIG and roomy and has alot of compartments that I needed. I am so pleased with this handbag! It is stylish and roomy for ALL of my things. I will continue to order Maxx handbags
I was at an audience show for Maxx bags when I saw this bag. I thought it was just beautiful. I haven't changed my mind, but now I think it is great for other reasons, too. The zippered center section is perfect for keeping things safe, and the outter pockets are nicely sized. I keep my cell phone in the front pocket, and keep packets of hand sanitizer in the little side pockets (they are a little hard to snap shut). I find this to be the perfect sized bag for me. I also get compliments on this bag all the time.
Not the usual Maxx quality
I received my bag and love the design. But, the pockets are difficult to get into because the bag is sewn very tightly and the fabric is very stiff. The magnetic closures are hard to close, again because the bag is very stiff. I would much appreciate a softer non-leather fabric and more expansion on the pockets. I am keeping the bag, but I love my other four Maxx bags more.
