The Camden Satchel

The Camden Satchel is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft leather, love the personalization This is my first larger purse. Like another reviewer, I tend to try and carry as little as possibly, partly because I have a slight issue with misplacing things! Anyway, I was somewhat concerned about the openings at either end of the zipper; however, the leather is so soft, I haven't had any issues with the bag gaping open. It is a great work purse and probably great for Moms for all those little extras you end up carrying around. You can fit extra shoes and smaller electronics. Plus, you can lay your lunch flat in the bottom of the bag! The personalization is quite small, but really adds a nice touch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful bag I have two different styles of this bag, and the quality is gorgeous and I especially love the personalization. Very roomy and perfect to take to work or use when shopping. Light weight too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new classic LOVE the leather. I purchased the bag in a saffron yellow with kelly green sides. The green leather is more plush but I prefer it when leather isn't too soft, otherwise it scratches far too easily for me. I also opted to add a 3-letter monogram to the bag. The font is a thin (gothic?) font. It's smaller than I imagined but it gives it a nice subtle personalization Note, the clips for the long strap can tend to catch on the zipper. (for some reason I couldn't discern). They kept getting stuck so I'd have to MacGyver it off. To avoid this I just flipped the clasps outward and crisis averted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect Everyday Bag I received this bag as a Christmas gift and am so in love with it. So much better in person - made of quality leather that will age beautifully. I love that, along with the satchel handles, there is also a (removable) shoulder strap. The monogram really makes it, though, and I highly suggest spending the extra dough on that bit of personalization. Chic and cool. Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful classic bag! This bag is roomy, classic, and I love the color. I use it to carry all my work essentials. It easily fits my magazines and my iPad. The bag itself is lightweight. I'm very happy with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect for a day time & office bag From the moment I saw this bag on, I felt in love with this bag and I knew that this will be my perfect office bag. It has enough space, shoulder rope, and very easy to carry any occasions. With my name engraved, it gets more specialized custom-made feel and everyone who sees me carrying this bag asking me where I got it. I am very happy to have this bag and I am sure I will love it more as I use it. Thank you very much Madewell. Best Regards, Kate

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tomboy girl finally adopts a purse So for years my mother has been nagging me to start carrying a purse. I've always hated carrying them-- it's sooo much easier to just slip a wallet into your back pocket in my opinion. However, I must admit, she did alright choosing this bag to give as a Christmas present. I'm loving the boxy, simple silhouette, it fits my style perfectly. No tags, no logos, just beautiful reddish brown leather in a timeless, classic shape with a nice long strap. I did think it was a bit large and cumbersome at first and was having trouble filling it (I usually only leave the house with wallet, keys, and phone), but I guess that's just because I wasn't really used to carrying a purse at all and now I've begun carrying around my iPad, books, and other things. So I guess to sum it up, this is the first bag to convert a wallet only kind of girl to a purse carrying kind of girl. Hope this is a helpful review :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful bag I love this bag, the color is like oxblood red than a burgundy but it's a great color regardless. For me the size perfect, not small and not too big either.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous, leather scratches a bit I bought the English saddle one. Looks wise, it's absolutely stunning, a great classic. The two sides at the end of a the zipper are attached, which makes it slightly inconvenient to put my 13" computer in/out. I'm still debating if I want to cut the piece of leather that connects. It's held up fairly well so far, but the leather gets dirty / scratches somewhat easily. 4.8/5.0
