The wonderful thing about 3 pockets is you know where everything in your purse is. You can clip your keys to the d-ring to hold the strap on, my nice and flat Saddleback wallet goes in the slimmest pocket, phone goes in another, and miscellaneous such as lip gloss goes in the light pocket. This purse is nice and light which makes it very easy to carry around everywhere, wandering stores, the city, etc. It's fabulous.
I purchased this several months ago and being I am not good at sizing down what I carry to fit my bag, I was a bit skeptical this one would work for me. I purchased it anyway as I liked the style/color and was looking for an all leather crossbody bag with built in organization I could carry in airports with my backpack, so I didn't have to take the pack off my back to buy snacks, board, get my rental car, etc....... No regrets with my purchase!! It is a GREAT bag that I can fit more into than I expected. At the moment I carry my ear buds in a soft case, iPod classic, charging brick (with 2 USB slots) and phone (5.5 in screen) in the front compartment, in the middle I keep lipstick/Chapstick, a small bottle of hand sanitizer and lotion, 4-5 gin gins or travel tube with ibuprofen or pepto, and money, in the back (narrowest) compartment, I keep my ID wallet (with drivers license and 3-4 cards), work ID/Bldg access cards and boarding passes, sometimes my phone. I have to pack the items just right so I can snap all of three pockets - so the top one usually isn't snapped, though I can get more in the bag now, than I could when I first received it, so suspect as I get closer to the 12 month mark, I will be able to snap all three pockets even with the amount I carry. I have also used it without the strap in the bucket and other totes I have. I am hopeful Suzette brings this in DCB and Tobacco as I'd be all over them. Is said, I like the bag so much that even if she only made it in my least favorite color-Chestnut, I would not hesitate to buy another one.
My sweet boyfriend searched high and low for the absolutely best quality handbag for a Christmas gift. He came across the Saddleback/ Love 41 company and was very impressed with not only with the quality and warranty of the product, but the individuals behind the company as well. Very amazing company and people! This Triple Pocket Cross-body just came in the mail (late Christmas gift) and I love it! It looks and smells great. Wonderful quality and made with very nice genuine leather. I love the construction of it with it's separate pockets and long adjustable shoulder strap. The very back pocket is the tightest pocket, but prefect for your phone or traveling papers. The middle and bottom pocket are actually roomier than I was expecting. Plenty of room for your necessities. I love this gift and I've never had a bag this nice. Thank you Love 41, you've made customers out of us!
