Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous leather! I adore this bag! The flap was a little stiff at first, but with wear has grown softer and has he most gorgeous patina on it now! I would not hesitate to purchase this in Black next season. Looks great on the shoulder and holds a lot :) Frye makes great products, and have a much more bohemian kind of vibe which Iove. I have not made one dry purchase in my life that I regret. I do wish they would bring back the purse fobs though. They added a touch of extra detail to the bag. To give you an idea of quality, my first bag, a Melissa hobo is over 5 years old and looks great, and is still as functionable and wearable as day 1 when I got it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought this bag and I love it, I'm in love with Frye products I have two pairs of boots and a pair of dancing shoes that I can dance all night wearing thanks to the cushion insoles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Frye Received this as a gift and I love it! I have been a huge fan of Frye and still have a few items I bought in the 70's. I have quite a few Frye purses, boots and shoes and love them!!. Frye uses thick quality leather and their products last forever! Some item have to be broken in a bit though. I haven't had an issue with the clasp, it works about the same as any other purse I have with that set-up. I can't imagine not appreciating the quality of Frye

Rated 2 out of 5 by from this bag is sooooo ANNOYING!!!!! this bag annoys me to no end - I gave it two stars only for the thick leather - its really thick leather - but the design/function and workmanship on this bag is awful - just awful - first, the magnetic closure is a joke - and its very weak - the only time it works is if you have one small item laying at the bottom of the bag - and I mean like just a flat wallet - the flap is super stiff - while I understand how leather works.... I am not willing to wait until the leather softens to get this flap thing to lay down nicely - the bag is sewn badly - seams are crooked or off - mostly its the flap thing that is so annoying to me - maybe if the bag had just a straight across top with a zipper closure - but honestly I have never had a bag frustrate me as much as this one - and its all because of that flap closure - its worthless - you have to keep folding it down and its so stiff and unyielding that it can be a chore - the actual useable amount of space in this bag is not much either - that flap thing takes up a lot of the leather - so unless you like that annoying big flap thing standing straight up, you cannot put much in this bag - that's annoying too - oh by the way, the burgundy color is nice - in the few places that you see the burgundy color - but there is so much odd/blackish darkening to it in a lot of places (mostly along the seams - all of them - and the entire base of bag) that I have to add that as another 'annoying' thing about this bag - so no surprise, its going back - as fast as I got it. I get that frye uses good thick leather - which is awesome for boots - but for bags, there is such a thing as leather that is too thick - to keep a bag from being functional - this design on this bag - does not work - and not that big of a fan of the bare leather interior either - regarding the leather smell, my husband says he can smell something of a leather scent - but I don't smell pure leather - there is something odd about the leather smell of this bag - not sure if its chemicals that were used in the process - or what they used to seal the seams - but its not a pleasant leathery aroma - ugh - did I say this bag was annoying?? the workmanship is not that great either - I had several problems with the cara tote I returned too - workmanship problems - on this bag the base is badly put together - it looks like an amateur job - except for the thick quality of the leather, you would not think this bag cost 300 bucks -- to sum up, very disappointed and very annoyed with this style/design/workmanship of this bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Style I like the cognac color, the size, the fold over flap with magnet instead of zipper - it's the perfect set up for a hobo - the leather is a little stiff but I imagine that will soften with time - I like the distressed look - looks broken in already!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Always wanted a Frye This was a huge disappointment, the leather is not soft and supple. It's very rough and there was scratches as if it was a used purse. Also like another review said it doesn't stay closed. Upset now I have to pay to ship it back.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Feels awkward, and not soft This bag is not like I imagined at all! I thought it would be scrumptious and so soft that it draped. It did not drape down, it was kind of stiff and there was a fold in it that would not go away. Horrible bag, so disappointed because I was looking for something different.
