this is just what I've been looking for! It is easy to organize my travel documents while boarding and then toss it into my larger carryon. When I get to my destination, I use it as a cross over bag or a waist bag. It is large enough for my passport, cell phone and more. It is much more fasionable than a fanny pack.

I bought this bag in purple for a world cruise. It was absolutely perfect for carrying the ship's daily events schedule, a sail & sign card, a small camera, etc. Light weight, small, and well organized. The only glitch was the poor material used to finish the top edge -- the color rubbed off quickly, making the bag look old before its time. Magellan quickly replaced the bag upon my return, and too my surprise and delight, they had modified the design to include a better, more durable trim! I'm going to buy another one of these great bags to gift to a friend who will cruise next month.

This is a great size for a purse, but the color scrapes off quickly and looks very tacky. NOT for everyday/frequent use!

Perfect size for carrying the essentials.

This little bag is great. Lightweight, with enough space to hold credit cards and cash. I keep my little camera in the big pocket and there's room for a lipstick or small items in the zipper pocket. I just wear it under my jacket like a messenger bag, only smaller. Great when you don't want to be weighted down with a purse.

Somewhat disappointed. Good quality product, but smaller than I expected.

What a great idea to have a small bag for cards,passports, etc. Only problem was, after I got it I realized they were not RFID, so now I need to buy something to protect everything! I would have paid extra for that.

This little purse has and does it all! I like the size, the compartments, and best of all the safety of not having my cards and info scanned. I recently was a victim of credit card fraud, but no more with this purse. Great travel size.

Love this bag! Never have to worry about it being bulky hanging across my shoulder. It's light weight and compact, just perfect for my busy lifestyle! Everything I need for 'on the go' is in this bag! Thanks!!!!!

This little bag is perfect for anything from hiking to the casino. Anywhere that you need to carry a lot, but don't want to carry a purse. It is a little too small for a camera, but will fit all your other needs. Love it!

I loved the style of this purse. It is lightweight and has all the necessary compartments for a traveler. I was very disappointed when, after a week's use, the trim at the top flaked off. I ended with a gray purse with PINK trim. I also had an incident in a large city crowd notorious for pick-pockets where the clips somehow became unfastened and the purse fell to the ground. I was fortunate to be the one to retrieve it. I would buy another if guaranteed it wouldn't flake.

The size of this bag is perfect, but the trim on my purple bag deteriorated on my first trip. I now have a purple bag with a mostly white trim. Please figure out a new trim material, because otherwise I love this bag!

This bag fits perfectly inside a portfolio or brief case. I don't want to carry a purse and a brief case, but when I go to lunch, I don't want to carry the brief case. This bag holds all the essentials for a lunch break including glasses and a phone. I'm so happy to have found it.

I purchased the purple bag for my recent trip to have a way to carry just enough, without being tempted to carry more than necessary. It worked very well for me - comfortable, lightweight, dirt and water resistant, and spacious enough for all my doodads. My one and only disappointment was that white began to show up in the piping/tape around the top of the bag. It went from a great looking bag to a well used bag in just a matter of days. Too bad.

I bought this little purse/wallet with hopes that I would get a lot of use from it. When I received it, it looked very nice. I took it with me on a 7 day trip to Disney World and by the third day the entire rim around the top was cracked and the color was flaking off. Instead of a leather rim it is cheap plastic. It looked terrible. I ended up throwing it away when I got home. Definitely not worth the money. I am extremely disappointed as the quality of Megellan products is generally good. This is a DO NOT BUY.

The size, straps adjustability, and organizer part is very good. I have used it since Oct. 6, 2012. The top of the organizer wears quickly. It needs a sealed plastic or something like metal around the rim to keep it from deteriorating, because it is a very soft material. It needs to be more durable. I couldn,t understand why the price of the purple was on sale for half, and the other colors were not. It is the same item. The price for the other colors were to high for this item.

I ordered this purse in purple to take on a cruise, thinking it would be the perfect size for around the ship. The size is good, however, the magnetic closure on the purse demagnitized my cruise card even though I carried the cruise card in an outside pocket. I do not know how much I will be able to use this purse for that reason.

I've been looking for a small bag to use when out 'n about touring. They're usually either too big or too small, but this one is just right. It's large enough to carry essentials like money, ID, phone & camera, but small enough to wear cross-body under a jacket for security. Love it!

I love all the compartments and the durable, easy-clean fabric. The only things I don't like about it is I wish it was just a tiny bit bigger so I could carry a small hairbrush and there is no place for a pen except dangling loose inside somewhere. I wish there was a pen holder inside.

I bought this in purple - great color. It is a wonderful organizer (multiple sections) for carrying essentials (ID, money, credit cards, keys, some papers). I do not feel that it is large enough to hold a water bottle, but from experience it has a pocket perfectly sized to hold passports!

This is the only purse I travel with. It fits easily into my carry-on and holds everything I need for the day. My phone and sunglasses fit in the center section, the large zippered outside pocket holds credit cards, cash, and ID, and the smaller zippered pocket holds a lot, too. Mine is black, but I'm here to buy it in another color. Love it!

It only held a bit more than the bare essentials, but when traveling, that was good--my money, a few cards, my travel documents, a comb, a pen, some kleenex, and a couple little odds and ends--and that meant I had what I needed and wasn't laden with a big bag to carry around in addition to my suitcase. I could just put this over my shoulder. Nice and easy.

Great little bag for when you want to carry the minimum: a few credit cards, a little cash, cell phone, and that just-in-case umbrella. Only wish the strap was a little wider, but at least it's completely removable so I can replace it with one that works better for me.

This carrier is small, but useful when you are traveling and only want to take your license, pasport, credit card and a few other essentials.

I recently purchased this bag for our family trip to disneyland and didn't want to carry anything. I believe this is going to be just great with handy zip pocket on one side and large inner pocket for tickets, map, etc. Great item!

I used the little purse for a helicopter flight where they discouraged the weight of a normal size purse. It is a great size, can go on waist or cross shoulder and held all my ID, a camera, cell, comb.

I do like the bag, middle section needs to be bigger though. Water bottles are made bigger now, so a water bottle took up the whole section. I ended up using that section for my camera and a few small items. Be careful of the magnetic closures- the magnet is so strong it erased my room key card and it wouldn't work.

This bag is really handy for running errands, especially if you hate to carry a purse. The light coloured interior is a good idea. The pockets are useful and well located and it hangs comfortably across body, I can even leave it on with seat belt attached. Only drawback is it's not big enough for glasses or sunglasses. A hard sided glasses case with lanyard could attach, though. A water bottle would never, in my opinion, fit.

I really like the style and idea of this day bag, so I bought two of them Keeping a person hydrated during the day with a bottle of water or other and still have handy pockets on the front and back was what drew my attention.However, because of the round features of almost any bottle that is put into the bag, it creates difficulty for putting straight-edge items larger than credit cards into the pockets (and even credit cards are a little tricky)....perhaps also a pen pocket. and redesign...
