I specifically got this purse for going to see Green Day in concert! But I have already taken it out to the movies, and to run short errands a few times now, and it is great!
Not too bulky, like my "daily purse" which has everything but the kitchen sink in it. Made from rain jacket material, it's strong and lightweight. It's just big enough for my wallet, checkbook, and a small make-up bag. There is a handy zipper pouch on the inside for movie/concert tickets, or larger smartphones.
The zipper pouch on the outside is large enough to hold my Samsung Epic 4G Android Phone (Sprint), but I don't know if the newer, larger phones would fit. There is a sleeve on the inside of the purse, clearly intended for a cell phone, but since this purse was designed around the time American Idiot (Deluxe) [Explicit], it is too small for today's larger smartphones.
The only thing I feel I need to deduct a star for is the 2 smaller pouches in front. You could put a tube of lip balm in there, but you need to turn the bag upside down to get it out. I wouldn't want to put anything of value in those pouches, because I'd be afraid it would fall out. I suppose someone could find a use for them, but they are just decoration for me.
I still love this purse, and I will continue to use it when I only need the essentials!
