I have been looking for a bag that was stylish but big and comfortable enough for long dog walks and all of the paraphernalia that entails for ages. It seems I can overfill a normal handbag and get back ache or take a full-on rucksack which is complete overkill. Anyway, This looked perfect.

It arrived today and I am sending it back. I read the other reviews that said it was difficult to find stuff and that didn't really bother me, but I missed the point. The fold over part of the bag is not a flap, it's the bag. So when you open the bag, it's like a tube. A dark fairly thin tube, up to your elbow. So you'll be delving in for your purse/mobile phone/dog treats/ poo bags without really the ability to see what you're doing.

In my head it was a bag with a fold over top, so open it up and it's one big space - difficult to find stuff and you'll have to delve, but I could live with that.

Change the design and I will probably not only buy one, but buy one in multiple colours, but for me this is just not practical.

Looking forward to Mk II version

I like the convenience of a backpack, and that this bag is big enough for everything I might carry around, e.g. tablet, bottle of water etc. It would be better with more pockets though, as it can be frustrating trying to find things. The side poppers, while they take the bulkiness out of the flap, are not really strong enough, and pop open again if I have to get anything out of the bag. That makes it fiddly to use. It would be useful if the outside side pockets were deeper, to take a half litre bottle of water or were more secure for keeping keys or phone in.

Useful backpack

Great colour that goes with everything, roomy without being huge. Can see this being really useful for my lifestyle.

lovely backpack

This is a really lovely backpack and a gorgeous colour.
Unfortunately I had to reluctantly return it as it was too large for me.

Love the fabric, colour, quality and size but, unfortunately, had to return it due to position of straps making it very uncomfortable for me to wear.
