Not perfect for me, but still better than the competition.
on April 3, 2011
I'm having a bit of a love hate relationship with my Baggallini.
+ Light weight for its size.
+ Easy to carry comfortably for long periods of time.
+ Easy to keep clean, no worries about rain wrecking the material.
+ Much more stylish than a regular backpack.
+ Magnetic closures work decently well when you don't want to completely close the purse using the zippers.
+ Front pocket works perfectly for a cell phone.
+ Tiny side pockets have awkward zipper angle so they take too long to access for use as a cell phone pocket.
+ Zipper tabs are heavy and make too much noise when they're zipped together and you're walking.
+ Top magnetic tab could have been larger and more of a "flap" so zippers aren't always necessary.
+ No good spot for a pen or larger items you want to keep separate from each other (large compartment should be bisected length-wise).
+ Little business-card sized slots in large compartment are just a waste of fabric and catch items as you're putting them into the purse.
+ Non-adjustable straps are even too long for my fat body. Can't imagine how low this bag sits on smaller women.
Take note Baggallini - I'd spend twice the money for a similar bag if you'd just take away the stupid too-big pen holders and useless business card slots, split the large compartment, and make the straps adjustable. These simple mods would turn this from a 'meh' bag to my favorite.
