On October 8, 2012: I got the beige bag; I love it so much, the room in the bag is magnificent; I love the storage. There are soooo many pockets in the bag and out. It looks small but carries a large amount. The attached key fob is just what I needed. I have a lot of handbags but this is definitely my favorite.
Nice for everything

Love, but not as expected
By Carole from The Woodlands, TX
On July 25, 2012: I was looking for a structured satchel style. The bag was stuffed of course. When you put your items in, at least in the sand-python color, the bag looks a tiny bit "sloppy", at least compared to what I was looking for. Not sure I would keep if I had paid full price (trade-in promo). That said, if you don't mind it being a bit unstructured, it's very pretty. Goes well with black, brown and khaki, any combo of those and looks great with red and orange too, probably navy as well. When I let go of the "structured" expectations, it's really very nice, and the python distracts from any minor mishap areas in my opinion. And if it was structured, it would be heavier; it's quite lightweight. I'll keep it and I love it already! (No iPad issue with me, I use a Vaio in separate tote.)
I LOVE this bag
By Irene from San Jacinto, CA
On May 16, 2012: This bag is the first quality bag I have ever had. It is roomy with lots of special pockets, it opens up so you can really get in the purse and organize your things and get ready access to it. Love the Sand color. It is Quality and Functional. I Love it.

On April 22, 2012: Brought my iPad to the store to try out the bag! Unfortunately, as the other reviewer points out, the pocket with Velcro doesn't not fit the iPad at all. Otherwise, it would have been an ideal size for a go everywhere with your iPad bag! I really hope Brighton can put a padded inside pocket across the width of the bag for housing an iPad and also make a sturdier bottom so it won't create an uneven bottom from putting iPad or a heavy wallet in there! I will give 5 stars when the bag is revamped. The dimension of this bag is just ideal for putting an iPad and your essentials in it!
No iPad Pocket
By AnaMaria from Los Angeles, CA
On April 10, 2012: My primary purpose for purchasing this bag was the advertised "iPad pocket". Do not be fooled! The interior pocket with Velcro closure does NOT fit an iPad!! The iPad fits but the Velcro closure cannot be used as the iPad is bigger than the pocket. Without the closure the iPad leans out of the pocket. The iPad should fit snugly in the pocket and the Velcro closure should work. This should be immediately redesigned or not advertised as such. Otherwise the bag is nice, roomy, with great interior & exterior pockets.
