Product Details
Sleek and streamlined, this leather wallet bag is both superhandy (the divided compartments are big enough for an iPhone Plus) and supercool (the adjustable chain strap can be worn crossbody or doubled up as a top handle). Functional and fuss-free-this is the way we do a going-out purse.

  • Please note: As it is made of a natural material, each bag varies slightly in texture and color.
  • Stud closure.
  • Card slots, center slide compartment.
  • 21 5/8" crossbody drop.
  • 5 1/8"H x 6 1/2"W x 2 3/8"D.

The Chain Crossbody Bag

The Chain Crossbody Bag is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love pink for fall this year! I'm always looking for tiny crossbody bags, and this is the best one yet from madewell. I got the pale pink color, which I love for fall this year. It's big enough to fit my phone, my card holder, a lipstick, mini perfume... all the things I would keep in my pockets if women's clothes had pockets. I carry this bag at work every day.. I don't know why, but I kind of expected it to be more like a wallet/bag hybrid, with various card slots. It only has one, so you'll still need something to organize your cards. I'm also a bit disappointed that I waited too long on this one and, by the time I placed the order, it was shipping from a store, and I couldn't get it monogrammed. My local store has a machine, though, and they said I could drop it off and they will do it for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So adorable I wanted it in the burgundy color since it was such a unique color but the blush was a perfect second option. Only thing is it was slightly smaller than expected, but I still LOVE it and can't wait to rock it on my next date night.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great things really do come in small packages I personally love this... especially for a day of shopping. The leather is so soft and I simply adore the versatility of this bag due to the fact that it can either be a shoulder bag or crossbody. Well done Madewell you have done it once more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for running errands This mini natural leather crossbody is great for running errands since I am not a fan of big bags. Although the chain strap can be a little heavy for the bag but overall I give it a five star for the style and quality delivered on the price point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tiny, but big enough! I can comfortably fit my phone, small wallet, keys, lipbalm, earbuds and phone charger cable. Often you have a hard time pulling things out of similarly sized small purses, but due to the accordian style, you can stretch it and see everything at once. I love how you can double up the chain for a shorter strap and also have the flexibility of having a longer crossbody. It's easy to open and close and I have no complaints yet! It's perfect for carrying just the essentials and it looks supercute.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Cute chains, soft leather, the perfect crossbody length for a petite like me, and the right size to cary a phone, few credit cards, and keys. What's not to like?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just gorgeously Very well made hence the name, I’ve already bought another bag just because I love my bag so much!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not quite as expected 1) This bag is tiny. I was expecting a bit larger, but I hadn’t paid attention to the dimensions, so just take a look at those before you order so you know what size you’re getting. 2) the color is quite different than pictured. They warn that the color will vary slightly because of the leather, but it’s very different. Not the cognac color pictured - it’s a deep brownish red, even the stitching. It’s still a pretty color, just not what I was expecting given the picture. 3) the chain is SHORT. You can pull it out to a single chain to wear longer but it is still way too short to wear as a crossbody (it hits at about my waist instead of hip and I’m 5’5”). This part I find pretty disappointing as it is called a CROSSBODY bag. Idk if i will keep it or not, it’s still a beautiful bag & the quality is great, the leather is buttery and smells amazing...I just have to wrap my head around the differences from what I expected & know I can’t wear it as a crossbody.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So cute, but slightly different than pictured I love this tiny little bag! It's the perfect choice for a casual outfit and neatly fits a few credit cards, my iPhone 6s (too small for anything bigger) and some keys. Rating 4 stars only because the leather was less camel and more of a red undertone. I got the keychain in the same color and that one was more of a tan color. If you're not super picky about leather color, I say go for it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Little small, but a chain bag for a very good price. Size is a little small, but very good quality leather and the chain looks very beautiful in person!
