This bag is very well designed and intended to last. And besides that I really like it.
I find it difficult to estimate the exact size of handbags on line so here is what this one holds easily: Checkbook, wallet, sunglasses, 2 smallish cell phones, several pens and a pair of glasses without the case (there is a convenient pocket inside that works for glasses without a case. The hard case for my glasses, which I like because it keeps my glasses from getting smashed is a crowd. The bag is pretty full now and is definitely crowded when the Kindle goes in.
I bought this bag somewhere else and wanted to check the Amazon price - it is the same.
It is easy to organize this bag and I won't have to rummage around in it, which I hate to do, everything has a place.
I am 5'9 and the shoulder strap fully extended is exactly the right length to be worn across from one shoulder to the other hip
