expensive but nothing else quite like it,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: LeSportsac Classic Hobo Handbag (Apparel)
I've been carrying Le Sportsac bags for years - mainly because they're sturdy and lightweight. Overpriced at retail - but I've been lucky enough to find them in "discount" type stores in the past (Ross, Marshalls, etc.) and occasionally a good buy at department store sales.Some stores manufacturers have copied them - the handle, fabric are not quite up to LeSport sac specs.
This black "patent" or shiny finish does double duty for travel - it holds everything - including my camera - and I can carry it all day and have no problem carrying it to an evening performance - concert or theatre. Since I travel abroad with only a 21 inch carryon - space and weight are paramount concerns. The purse fits into my shoulder tote - no problem worrying about scrunching it up and thus enables me to clear TSA check with the one bag and one personal item.
P.S. I never cease to be amazed at women who carry large handbags with hardware (buckles, trim) that weigh close to 5 or 6 pounds - this added to all the stuff inside!
