Rated 2 out of 5 by from Beautiful but Not a Keeper - Rtn'd Same Day! Pros: Very beautiful handbag! Clearance item, leather, feet on bottom (many high quality don't have this important protective feature), stands on own (doesn't puddle), heavier than most leather handbags but not as bad as I thought might be. Loved all the separate compartments with both zippered and open options. Cons: No pocket of any kind on the outside - a great (and almost expected) feature for convenient access to phone isn't available! No key fob/strap to hook keys to inside area (another nice and convenient feature that should be "standard" on high-end handbags. Most disappointing of all is that NONE of the pockets on inside back wall will fit an iPhone 6+; this was most shocking to me! (Another review stated this, but I thought surely they are mistaken - no!) Can't imagine what the designers were thinking on this one! This means the ONLY place to put your phone is inside a zippered pocket or loose in the bottom! The leather straps that look like they are there to secure whatever you do manage to put in these pockets are actually for show and don't secure anything. The shoulder straps will not stay up (the outermost strap falls immediately). Once again, I should have listened to the other review but had hoped I wouldn't have the same problem, but I did. Also, the straps are so stiff that when you sit your handbag down on table, floor, etc, they don't fall flat, but kind of stick out. The "feet" on bottom are a little too large show more visible when carrying. Glad to have them, but should be low-profile. One last disappointment for me, it doesn't fit my laptop (but laptop is 14.5" wide). This would have been overlooked if all the other "cons" weren't a factor. I REALLY hope they will listen to their customers and REDESIGN this handbag as it should be. If they "fix" these issues, I would gladly pay $250+ for this bag.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bad leather, bad craftsmanship, illusory design Though I have loved GILI bags for a long time (I have so many original ROMAS, it's embarrassing), I cannot say anything good about this East/West shopper, or about the new ROMA 5, or even the new large ROMAS. I've bought several newer Romas since the host Lisa left -- and all are made poorly and are sown poorly. I thought I try this one, the East/West shopper, since it's a newer style, and the new host seemed to have some passion invested in it. Plus it seemed more adult and professional. And I loved the structured look. So I got one in Garnet. It seemed fun. Based on reviews the quality of the leather wouldn't be great, but the color would be nice. I also got the one in brown croc, thinking I could wear it with my brow croc Roma if I had a lot to carry, or use it as a brief case for a meeting. Well, here's the verdict: the Garnet bag is fun, and a great color, but the bag I got had stitching coming off the bottom -- already! In the box!. So I got another one. Better, but the stitching is still starting to come undone now -- and I have only worn the bag ONCE. There is the same problem with the Brown one, the stitching comes loose. The leather quality is definitely not good. This is especially obvious in the Brown. At least the Garnet is not trying to look "real" -- as I said, it's a playful color. I like the Garnet color a lot! In addition to poor quality leather, and the stitching coming undone, there is the paramount problem (for me): the bag is not as structured as it looks. In fact, shortly after you start using these bags, they start to lose their shape, which looks tacky. When the bags have things in them (or when not stuffed completely with paper), they start to have that "amoeba" look. The structured shape (the reason why I ordered the bags) is pretty much an illusion. Having been terribly disappointed with ALL the GILI bags I've ordered that were manufactured after the departure of the original GILI host, I am now done with the whole line. I hope others have better luck!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent choice... I purchased this to replace a D&B bag I used as a briefcase. I am so pleased with my purchase. It is very well organized and works perfect for a briefcase, which is what I wanted. The Red Croco is beautiful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great bag I almost sent back a little larger than expected but shockingly is not heavy bag so I’m keeping it! Only real issue is iPhone 6 Plus does not fit with case on! Ugh I have to carry two phones so having the two pockets for them was perfect!!! But I can’t use this! Other than that what a fashion statement eye catching bag!! I do love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tote bag Love all of the compartments in this tote! can put my laptop and some folders/papers and carry with me to meetings vs. carrying around a computer bag. Love the red croco finish too! Got while on a PM special so a great price- better than clearance!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing! I have been looking for a new bag for work. I wanted one that would hold my laptop and the few accessories I carry around. This fits the bill! The color is a wonderful caramel brown and the crocodile print is beautiful. It has structure, but the leather is supple. My laptop fits perfectly in the center zip pocket, with still more room inside. Each side has an open section that fits my computer accessories and papers, pens, etc. The only thing that I don’t like is that the handles are too short for me to put over my shoulder. I would also really love it if it had a strap to allow for it to be a crossbody. Overall it is a great bag!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice bag I really like this bag. I love a big bag so no complaints there. The bag is on the heavy side but not a surprise with a leather bag of this size. One or two more pockets would help get things off the bottom of the bag and a key leash would be nice. The handles slide off the shoulder a bit too. All things considered it’s a good bag for the reduced price. Glad I purchased it.
