    Comments about Boden Women Chelsea Bag:

    I needed a work bag and loved the blue. I carry my Ipad, a leather writing pad, etc. All fit great. I was a little concerned with the look of the quality of the handles. I showed it to a few friends and co-workers all agree that it is smart looking. Love the lining!!

      Comments about Boden Women Chelsea Bag:

      I've had this bag in red for about a year. It's roomy enough for my laptop and anything else I want to carry, and it's a great travel bag. I get a ton of compliments. However, soon after I received it one of the strap screws came loose. Fortunately the missing piece is on the inside between the exterior and the lining, so I can find it and put it back on. It comes off every few months. Also, after a year the trim has worn off at the bottom and the plastic shows through and pokes me in the thigh. This confirms what some reviewers have said--vinyl, not leather. I really love this bag but it shouldn't be advertised as leather when it is not, and now that it injures me when I use it, I'm going to have to retire it soon. But I have gotten a lot of joy and use out of it and would recommend it with reservations.

      Comments about Boden Women Chelsea Bag:

      I love love love this bag, but... after two months one of the straps came free from its rivet. In classic Boden style, they sent me a replacement overnight. I am back to loving it, and hoping that the new one holds up better. I'd hate to spend close to $200 on a bag (I bought it on sale) and have it only last a couple of months.

            I bought the bag in pink which is really moca brown at the Boden eBay store and it is vinyl not patent leather. The trim vinyl as well. Just outragous if you ask me.

              I have the navy blue bag and it is the most gorgeous thing ever. I love it. Classic yet really different due to the glossy exterior. It beats any designer bag costing 10x as much. Useful, beautiful, and really unique.

                This is a very expensive looking bag and great for everyday use. Additionally, I'm plan on using it for travel carry on as it's stylish and will hold all essentials. Just a great all around bag.

                  This is the greatest bag in all of life. It is roomy, has compartments for smaller items, the lining is gorgeous. I like the patent leather option better as I feel okay setting it down on the floor for a few moments if necessary without worrying that I will ruin it. I bought the champagne pink and think the bag is classy and cool at the same time.

                    I own this bag in red and have received so many compliments on it that I did not hesitate to purchase it again in Champagne Pink. It is just as beautiful and perfect for summer.

                    This is a huge bag; it is big enough for my MacBook if I'm traveling. Day to day I don't carry that much around with me so everything is easy to find. Is a great carry on when I fly because it can hold so much. Is great for loading up for vacations. Love it!

                    I give it 5 stars and always will, but have two suggestions to make it even more perfect: 1) add an inside hook for keys and 2) make the straps just a bit longer so it fits on the shoulder better. Over a coat or jacket it slips off.
