    Not great

      Best Uses

        I really wanted to like this bag. I have been a Boden customer for years (you should see my closet), but the quality of this bag is not good. Five seconds after I removed it from the box, I knew it was going back. The leather handles are glued -unattractive and will start splitting. A pretty bag and the perfect size, but a disappointment.

          I ordered the navy/green and it is very attractive. Inside it is roomy and stands firmly when you set it down to rummage.
          Love the colors.
          Great for commuting, for car trips or carry on, or as a mom bag with the day's supplies.

            This tote is very practical, yet looks great at the same time. Lots of room, but it doesn't look huge on your shoulder.

              I have this bag in two colors and I always get compliments every time I wear one of them. The color combinations are striking, the leather is good quality and it is well-made. It is a great size for work or for going out shopping and running errands. It would probably also work well as a gym bag, but I haven't tried that yet. I love this bag so much I would give it 10 stars if I could! I wish I could have it in every color!

                This is my second review for this bag as I have been able to use it each day this past week. I purchased it for work, to be able to carry my laptop and stacks of essays to grade,a few snacks, my smaller clutch, a pencil case, etc., and it has room for all of those things. I was discussing this with a friend who ordered the tote as well, and we agree that it is every bit as good as bags that are three times the price. I may order another for a Christmas gift to myself.

                I ordered the red and pink tote 6 months ago for spring. It is the perfect size, holds it shape so it's not too hard to find things that have settled to the bottom and is very attractive. I got many compliments on the bag. So when the brown tote went on sale, I snapped it up for fall and winter. The only downside is that you have to hook the extra strap onto the same loops as the handle. It would have been better if there were loops on the end of the tote.

                  So my in-laws came to stay with us for a week....after their LONG visit I felt the need for a little revenge shopping! I purchased this tote in red, and like my collection of other Boden handbags, this did not disappoint. What a stunningly gorgeous, beautifully crafted tote bag. It fits all I need for work, laptop, various papers, a book, a smaller clutch handbag, water bottle. It is simply perfect.

                        I wanted to love this bag, but the leather was too soft and mushy and the bag didn't feel structured enough to keep. It also was too big for what I needed. Sadly, it went back.

                          I needed a new bigger bag for work that would fit lunch, my MacBook Air, and other odds and ends to get me through the work day. I've been waiting for the perfect bag for this for a long time, and when I saw this one I jumped on it. I LOVE how it's a classic shape with the interesting/contrasting colors and tassel - so it has a classic, yet current/young style. It's professional enough that I'll bring it with me when I do customer visits for work, and it's also a great size for a carry-on when traveling on business trips.

                          I'm on the shorter side (5'1) and the bag fits comfortably under my arm with the shorter handles.

                          It's just the right size - not so big that you look like you're carrying your life around, yet big enough for all the work necessities.

                          All around a GREAT bag.

                            I love this bag, the quality is great. The design is so cute, I adore the contrast lining and the two-tone trim. I bought the Green/Navy one for myself and the Pink/Red one for a friend. I love the fact that it zips right across the top so that all your things are safe, great for travel. Also all the little pockets are very handy for things you need to access quickly. Gorgeous, gorgeous bag. I may have to purchase the zebra print! :-)
