This review is from: ellington Annie Convertible Bag (Apparel)
This is an almost perfect tote/backpack.

Pros:
* A range of attractive colors
* Hangs well against the body both in tote mode and backpack mode.
* Correctly-sized organizational pockets for smart phones, pens and wallets
* Main compartment is sized large enough to hold a shawl or small sweater.
* Backpocket is sized perfectly to hold small-medium guidebooks such as Lonely Planet or Fodor's.

Cons:
* Outside organizational pockets are not zippered and phones can slip/fall out during donning and doffing of the bag or when the tote is horizontal (on a table for example).
* Outside side pocket is too shallow to hold a water bottle securely but is ok for tissues or a bandanna.
* Main compartment is not zippered which would add to the security of this bag.
* Included coordinating strap is too short for wearing this bag over a winter coat or for the broad-shouldered.

I really wanted to love this bag. The color was perfect and so was the way it hung against my body, perfectly balancing the weight of the contents. However, whenever I took off or put on the bag in backpack mode, my cellphone would slip out of the exterior pocket and fall out, thereby making the exterior pockets essentially useless for their intended purpose. Although there are 2 zippered-pockets in total (one in the main compartment and one behind the outside organizational pockets) they are meant for smaller slimmer items such as a small wallet.

Hopefully Ellington Leather will modify this design in the next version of this bag.
