I love this bag!

I love this bag. I usually avoid adjustable shoulder straps on bags -- more than 99% of the time, the buckle lands in an uncomfortable -- or downright painful -- spot on my shoulder when the strap is set to the length I want -- but the strap on this bag is the perfect length, and more comfortable overall than such straps usually are for me.
Size-wise, the bag is like a Quidditch World Cup tent or Hermione's beaded bag (gratuitous Harry Potter references -- yeah, well) in that it holds a lot more than expected from its external apearance, and still looks streamlined, with room to spare.
Finally, there is a wonderfully designed pocket located just under the strap attachment on one side, the perfect size and shape and place for carrying a water bottle, coffee cup, or umbrella.
Purple lovers, be forewarned, however: "Purple Potion" is really a dark burgundy plum hue, misleadingly named and much darker and redder in person than it appears in the picture here.

I like this bag.

Yes, the product description is still incorrect. But I saw the "old" bag with the embroidery in the store, and the new bag is nicer. I use this as my daily bag, the cross-body strap is very convenient when I have lots to carry. The strap adjusts easily back to regular shoulder-bag lengthy. Great organization with the various pockets. Big enough to hold a lot but not so big it looks awkward. I am looking forward to using this bag on vacation - the outside pocket will be great for tickets, etc. And the side pocket is great to sunglasses, a water bottle or what have you.

great bag!

I use this bag as a purse when I am out and about and it really gets the job done. I spent months looking for a cross body purse that was a little bigger, but not the size of a messenger bag and this completely fits the bill. I can easily access my cell phone and keys using the outside pockets and the main compartment is big enough for everything else I need. The adjustable strap is fantastic, I was able to fit the bag exactly the way I wanted. I would definitely recommend this if you are looking for a larger purse.

Product description is incorrect

When I went to EMS yesterday, I found two bags that were completely different but both labeled as the Brighton bag. The description online matches one of the bags, but this is not the same bag in the pictures online. The bag in the pictures does not have padding, the fleece lined pocket, or the expandable water pocket. It's also made of a different material--not nylon.

I prefer the design of the bag in the pictures and am thinking of getting it. Some of the features of the other Brighton bag are nice too so it's a hard decision.

Product Description Still Incorrect

I have the old Brighton bag with the fleece lined pocket, etc. and I love it. I just ordered the new Brighton bag in black when it had the old description. The tags on the bag I received still made reference to the fleece lined pocket, etc. Additionally, the new bag does not have an embroidered decoration on the side panel - it is silk screened.

While this bag was not exactly what I expected, I do like it. I was disappointed at first but think I will keep it.

Awesome Bag

I love this bag, it seems like great quality and there are way more pockets than I realized when I first bought it. I can fit a lot of stuff. When its empty I can compress it pretty small to stuff into a backpack which is super helpful. I started sewing on my own decorations (as in the photo) and plan to add more. I'm really happy I bought this!

Best bag

I use this bag mostly everyday now. I bought it because I had originally carried around a regular shoulder strap pocketbook and I was having back problems. Now I just sling my bag across my chest and it is so comfortable and I can carry everything in it. Plenty of compartments so you can keep things organized in there. I love this bag!!!

loved this bag last year

Bought this bag last year in magenta and navy and absolutely loved it. Used them daily and for travel. Pocket great for water bottle or umbrella. Easy to organize other compartments so everything has its place. Will buy another this year but I think the colors are really disappointing and yucky--either too loud or too dull for me.

Perfect for iPad

Just enough room for iPad and essentials without being overweight. Side pocket perfect for water bottle or umbrella.
There seems to be two slightly different versions, bought mine at local store, has embroidery, not screen print which I prefer. Hang tag was incorrect about some features but not a big deal. Perfect for what I bought it for.

ideal shoulderbag

Ideal for those who do not want weight on their shoulders. This one is perfect to wear across the chest and back as the strap is wide and soft. The shape conforms to the body. The compartments are ideal, including an exterior zipped area with a lanyard for a subway pass or other type of pass.

Nice features, cheap design

Was so excited to get this,, but after a few uses the tabs to open and close the zipper are coming off! That is the only way to open the zippers. Thinking about sending it back. Color wasn't quite what I expected either. Wish it had a shoulder pad too, strap digs into my neck. I do like all of the compartments and pockets! If you like a neat bag to store all of your stuff, this is the bag for you!
