This purse will safely carry you through crowds at the Eiffel Tower, the baseball park, the county fair or the local mall. It's incredibly roomy and will warehouse your keys, sunglasses, cell phone, cash & credit cards, tissues, makeup and quite a few other things. The bag has a small "footprint" and is very unremarkable. It won't brand you as a "tourist" and therefore vulnerable. You can carry it as a handbag, or lengthen the strap and wear it over the shoulder and/or across your body. If you are having back problems because of carrying a purse, you need this bag! Every woman on my gift list is getting one of these for her birthday this year.

This travelon travel bag exceeded my expectations--it's even better than it looks in the photo. The NUMEROUS compartments, expansions, and zippers make organization easy..and the bag looks great as well. My eggplant-colored bag is going everywhere with me from now on.
I am new to Travelon but am impressed by this bag. I managed to fit my things in it very nicely and for my plane trip, I will use the center section for my Kindle which fits very nicely., I like the gusset that expands the center section. I put a cardboard cut to size in the bottom of that section which could be easily removed and stored if I so chose. I like the way the center section closes only partially at the top with magnets on the side, making it easily accessible but protected. I am partial to the long and narrow configuration in a bag as I seem to be able to accommodate the things I carry (comb,wallet,nail file) The adjustable shoulder strap is great making it possible to use cross body or off the shoulder. I think the fabric is functional, passably attractive and I'm guessing waterproof. I only wish I could order another in black.
I used this compact, durable bag when going into each port on a cruise. It holds alot more than you would think. You are able to get everything you need into it, but it is very light. It is also quite handy because it is a cross shoulder bag which allows your hands to be free. I would highly recommend this bag for travel or even for everyday use. I have mentioned it to many friends.
I like the bag-have found Travelon to hold up very well. The color is as advertised. I was not as happy with this bag because one of the sides does not zip down on both sides far enough.. so is more difficult to access. The one feature that was the deciding factor in my keeping the bag was the easy open center-without that I would have returned the bag. The back zipper portion in not as easily accessed when worn because it is a vertical zipper- I have found the diagonal zippers work best. That is the pocket I put my keys in. It was a good value for the product. Will buy Travelon again.
Got this bag for vacation. It is great! Just large enough but not too big. Lots of zippered compartments so nothing is lost. Strap long enough to be carried cross-shoulder for safety reasons. Went on hikes and not too cumbersome. Good quality. Seems like it will last a long time. Would definitely buy again.
I have taken a liking to cross shoulder bags. Hands free no worries, no bags slipping off my shoulder etc. This purse is the perfect size and holds many items. The price right now is a STEAL! Highly recommend...I'm thinking of getting another! Enjoy!
I originally purchased this bag for a trip to Disney. It is probably not the right bag for that job, as it is much smaller than I anticipated. However, I am continually amazed at the amount of items this bag holds. It literally swallows belongings. There are many pockets, credit card slots, and zippered areas. It easily holds: credit cards, glasses, keys, receipts, water bottle and many other small items. Still not the Disney bag as it is too small to carry a guidebook, poncho and full-sized sunscreen, but I will be taking it on the plane and using it everyday.
just bought this bag to take to Disney with the kids to carry park tickets, credit cards, camera, etc.. It was exactly what I was hoping for, absolutely perfect. Great quality, sturdy zippers, tons of pockets. The strap is long enough to wear sling style. It is lightweight, beautiful color. I could not be more pleased. A real value for the money, would highly recommend!!
This would be a great purse for travelling - lots of pockets, fits a long wallet, adjustable strap, and the eggplant color is a true purple shade. While I can't give it high marks for style (and I'm not a particularly stylish person), it would be a great travelling or everyday bag that would be both comfortable and extrmely practical. AND...Overstock's price for this item is the best out there. So especially if you're planning a trip and looking for something that won't show the dirt, can be easily wiped down, and has lots of pockets/slots, this one is for you.
I love my Travelon purse. I let my mom borrow mine for a shopping trip and she loved it. So I bought her the black purse for Christmas. I love that it has magnets near the top so keys and change won't fall out of your purse. Also, I like this one because it comes with a flashlight which is handy in the dark.
I love my Travelon. I don't normally review products but this one is an exception. The quality is great and it is so comfortable to wear. I go out with my church a lot on visitation. I need to carry a lot of tracts, information and other bits of information with me all the time. By the time I get to the person's home I am usually overwhelmed by the amount of things I need to handle. With this bag, I simply keep it stocked and ready to go. I make the shoulder strap long enough that it hangs across my chest and it keeps out of the way until I need it. It holds 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 papers perfectly. I keep the zippers open and that keeps the corners of the papers from crinkling. It has an area I keep my keys in and the BEST part is the light that comes with the key chain. That light has allowed me to read the smallest of prints in the darkest of evenings. I would not go out without my Travelon. It looks professional and is very durable. Lots of pockets and places for pens too. You won't be sorry you bought this one!
