I actually ordered this too late to arrive in time for an upcoming trip. I was hoping that Overstock's typical speedy service might get to me in time, but it didn't. I did find the same bag at a local ****store and it is a perfect size for a wallet, sunglasses, little packet of tissues, gum, camera, etc....just about everything you need and it still wasn't bulky. We were in a big city, so I felt more comfortable with the across the body strap and it being in front by my hands. The bag I ordered from Overstock arrived while we were gone and now I have two...one for me and one for my daughter...perfect. I would recommend this bag for women travelers!
