This bag looks much more purse-y to me in person. It also seemed smaller than stated dimensions...this might be because the texture of the bag makes it hard to slide things in/out of it. I dig the recycled factor, but the weird lines and marks on the bag made it look dirty. Sent back already.

This is a well made, durable bag. Better than ANY purse I have bought through the years. For one simple reason- The lining. How many times have you bought a high end purse, only to have the lining tear from a pen or keys? This lining is made from a heavy blue jean type material. The only drawback is that there is only one zippered compartment in this one. I'm going to see if they happen to make one with more. Like I said, this is a purse that will last through the ages, is easy to wipe clean and won't be pitched just because you have to hunt your belongings between the lining and purse. I've had this for months and it looks NEW!

I got this because it has the look of black leather but it is recycled tire tubes. I support anything that is "recycled" whenever possible and this is unique and I love it. I didn't notice a heavy rubber smell as some reviewers mentioned. My 14" laptop fits in perfectly and feels strong and the lining is very nice. Well made bag and I expect it will last a very long time.

The purse looks even better than the picture. I had given it as a gift but upon inspection it seems to be made really well. The only reason I did not give it an excellent rating is because I will not get to use it to see how it will hold up.

It's a bit heavy, but it looks real rich. I bought one for my niece because she commented on how much she liked mine.

I'm glad someone bought the recycled car tire purse accented with bicycle tires and wrote this candid review. I love the idea of recycling, but I guess it goes to show, not everything can be made into everything else. Perhaps this bag would feel at home in the car trunk as a storage bag for small tools? God bless the artist and her work!

Durable and stylish! A good find. The lining lasts with the purse and is made of a very durable fabric. The shell is a wipe clean seatbelt, and I couldn't be happier with it. Well.....? Maybe a couple more pockets- Then I could call it the purse of my dreams. I get sick of spending so much money on purses only to have the weak linings tear and I'm hunting jingling change and my tube of lipstick in between the lining and actual purse. This one is a winner!

The purse doesn't stand upright on its own. I do wish there was a center zippered compartment. The straps also tend to slip off your shoulder, since the fabric is slick. But I really am delighted with this bag. It's both sporty and edgy-chic. Extremely durable. I just love it.

These bags are cool looking, environmentally/socially responsible, durable, and different from what everyone else has. I couldn't be more pleased. Bought one for myself and one for my husband. The shipping was incredibly fast. A winner all around.

Better than I expected. Such a great cause and looks great. It's able to hold all my stuff, but isn't too big.

This is a great purse for an active lifestyle. It is made of seat belts and doesn't seem to care if it is on the floor, in the back of the car, or out to lunch. It looks terrific and trendy. I have gotten so many compliments on it. Additionally, my good purse is no longer being dinged and ill treated while it seat belt replacement goes on adventures.

Product on time and as promised. Not as tightly woven as the SeatBelt Bag brand but AWESOME!

You could not even fit a set of keys and sunglasses in this heavy and very smelly bag. The concept is cool, but it is not practical. The smell is toxic tire smell, the space inside is super tiny and it is heavy, like a tire.

I have spent hours looking for a messenger bag that was comfortable and unique. I was just about to give up and I found the recycled bag made in India. It has everything I wanted, messenger bag layout, really cool/unique design and on top of it alll it benefits a charity- big win. The bag is light and super durable and water proof. Its make of intertubes and old bike tires- with stamps that read Made in India. The only drawback is that it is a bit small for a laptop- needs to be about 15% bigger to comfortably fit a full size laptop- but it works for my small laptop and is prefect for a tablet

the bag is great and arrived in a timely manner. The only problem about it is that it smells like tires, but it's made out of tires so I don't exactly know what I expected. Great bag though!

I love the bag and I have gotten many complements on it. It is a little smaller than I thought it would be. I am stuffing my things into the two small sections. Other than that, it is a good bag. I would suggest using is as a computer or tablet bag. Very durable. Nice lenght to the strap.

Other than the purse being a touch small I live the purse. I have had many compliments on it. Depending on the light, the color of the strapping changes colors. Sometimes looks like vertical strapping is green and horizontal is blue.

Because the rubber material from the tires is so thick and hard, you can barely fit anything in the bag. Even a reusable water container won't fit the width. Although it looks to be a "messenger" bag, it's more like a rectangular purse. Could be used for papers and a thin wallet & small items. I like it. It's very unique & priced great- just not what I was expecting.

I love the bag - it is strong, durable, fashionable, and the perfect neutral colors to go with anything. there are a couple of things I'll suggested they adjust in the manufacturing: first, the lining is a dark denim - makes it hard to find items at the bottom of the purse - just change to a lighter color denim or cotton. Also, the straps are too wide for my shoulder. Tacking them to half the width would be a great touch.

Pleasantly surprised by this item. It looks really good and the size is perfect for an everyday bag. Good construction and the fact that it is made from seat belts, makes it rather charming. I would highly recommend it, welll worth the price.
