I spent a lot of time trying to decide which of the purses I wanted. This purse is a great size (w/o being TOO big) allowing me to fit all my necessary junk in it. Part of the reason it took so long for me to decide which purse to get was the product description wasnt very detailed. I needed to see all sides of the purse and had to find that elsewhere. I finally decided to buy it b/c the purse had feet, the zipper on the backside and the 2 flap pockets are great for quick storage, the interior looked roomy with its 3 pouches, and it included a shoulder strap. The only thing about the shoulder strap is that it's a bit awkward to carry the bag that way b/c it's a bit bulky. Also, the description said brown canvas; it's not a cloth-y type canvas, it's that wipeable kind so if you get something on it you can easily wipe it off.....that was a major selling point for me. I cant speak much about durability yet since i've only had it about a month, but so far so good!
