F185648 - Travelon Large Three-Compartment Expandable Shoulder Bag
did not like at all
I immediately disliked the strap. It is too wide and when you convert it to a shoulder strap , it is difficult to slide the strap. and it covers the top of the purse, making it difficult to get into the bag. It should've been a buckle strap.I didn't hesitate to return it. The return label was on your own and a blank USP and UPS label. It cost $16.00 to return it on your own. I have a small Travelon purse that I bought years ago and the compartments are better organized and I wish they would bring that one back.
For me, STILL the best bag on the planet..
I've owned both the smaller version and this one for many, many years. When they became non-repairable, I just ordered another one.
Other than taking it to the shoe repairman to have the strap fixed a few times, this purse still remains the greatest purse I've ever owned.
I love that it stands upright, and is not floppy. This enables it to sit on the front seat of the car (in a seat organizer), and I can get to it with one hand and using NO EYES (so my eyes are on the road!) to get my lip balm or a pen or something. Everything is exactly where it is supposed to be and STAYS there without jumbling around in some black hole. I never have to look for anything ever.
HOWEVER, if any TRAVELON FOLKS ARE LISTENING, PLEASE create this exact bag just a little larger - like maybe 12 or 13" wide to accomodate tablets and e-readers more comfortably.
That said, my Kindle does fit in the very back zipper, even with the cover on it, if I manuever it just right, but I would like to have it go in even easier and with more room.
I hope you never get rid of this purse because I absolutely love it - just bigger would be nice.
purchased 1 for myself, loved it so much I purchased 2 more for gifts. The straps have broken on all three of the purses. They were not over loaded and were being used by 3 different people for a short period of time. I purchased one years ago in a different color and when I saw this one I thought having a black one would be great. The one I purchased years ago is made much better than this black one. Travelon needs to fix this problem because the purse would be great otherwise. Do not purchased this until they fix the problem!
Love this shoulder bag
Love, love love, this bag. I have 2 of them and would like to have more in other colors,like brown, tan, plum etc. It is just the right size, has room for everything and is well made. Please, please bring more back. This would be a great gift for most everyone.
I absolutely love this bag, I have it in purple. I am a big bag girl and so I use this for traveling only. It is just the right size, not too big and bulky. I took it on a two week vacation to Europe and it held everything I needed for all-day sightseeing. There are pockets for your money, pen, sunglasses, ID's. My camera and small camcorder also fit perfectly. There is also a pocket on the back great for hiding passport or money. I could also carry a water bottle in the expanded section. This is so much more accessible than the flap style. It was pretty filthy by the time I got back, so I just threw it in the washing machine on delicate and it came out like new. It is a great style, I want another color besides black when they come available again.
Straps will detach over time
Don't bother with this bag. It seems nice, but the straps will detach after just a few uses, even if you don't weigh the bag down that much. Travelon needs to work on their quality control and fix this problem.
Lightweight and easy to use
Have been waiting for this item to become available again. It is the best bag have
ever had. Love that it's small, but carries a lot. Would like to see it in different colors if
at all possible.
I love this bag! Don't ever get rid of it. I use this bag when I go to the grocery store, etc. Like one other viewer stated, no flap to be bothered with. I use this bag when I go to the zoo and I just put my essentials, which includes my rather fat wallet, my camera and an extra camera battery. Two suggestions: a little longer strap to use as a cross body and need more colors, please. As stated before, please do not get rid of this bag. Thank you.
I agree with the others - don't like the big flap, but this bag is very easy to access. The one I purchased has stripes across it in white with the Travelon name. Would much prefer plain (as pictured) but need more colors. It holds a lot and worked perfectly for a trip to a well known vacation spot in FL.
I love this bag
I love the design of this bag. Since I don't like bags with flaps, this one is a perfect fit for me. I had it for several years now and would love to see it in other colors. I did run into one problem, though. After several years of usage, the shoulder strap came loose from the body of the bag and I had to sew it by hand back into place (no easy task, mind you.) The design differs from how other bags straps are attached. Travelon might want to change the design so the strap attaches more securely.
I have several Travelon bags and of them all, this is my absolute favorite. It holds everything needed for travel, very light, can be used over shoulder or cross body by shortening the very comfortable strap handle. I'm disapponted this is only available now in black which is the color I have. I knew I should have ordered it in more colors when they were available. Hopefully, more will come back into stock.
i love my travelon bags there the best
i have had this travelon bag for about 1 year. wow!!!!! what a bag it is! it is holding up well.
i'm a mother of 3 very active kids. i'm a youth leader, in scouting, on the go alot and i can say that this bag has held up to travelon standards. i'm very pleased with every bag I have gotten from qvc too. i look around for other bags and i always seem to come back to travelon bags for the style and funtionalty of their bags. i would give this bag for a gift cause i know it will hold up very well for all womens needs. would like to see in a longer strap. i would love other colors like blue, purple, maybe even green. love it!!!!!!
