I purchased this bag in August when it was at an excellent price for my husband to give me for our anniversary in November. Although the description does state that the bag is made in China, I thought it was a typo because Tylie Malibu boasts that their products are made here in America. However, after receiving the bag and not seeing a label indicating where the bag was made, I emailed Tylie Malibu only to learn that this bag was made in China before they decided not to make bags overseas any longer. My issues with the bag are many: I don't care for the black lining (which is something I thought I could live with when I ordered.) The shoulder strap does not stay on the shoulder whether you use the padded shoulder thing or not. If you carry the bag by the top handle, and only use the latch clasp (not the "button" strips) the bag struggles to stay closed. The latching clasp is also difficult to close and latch when you are in a hurry to get in and out of the bag. And the raw edges of the straps are not finished properly and look like they could get raggedy once the bag has been used for a while. I used this bag for about two frustrating weeks after my anniversary and then gave up and switched to another bag in my collection. I would not buy this bag again even though I paid much less than the $300+ it is now selling for.
