The Montreal Satchel Bag
Product Details
Our take on the forever-classic satchel bag comes in rich gets-better-with-age Italian leather with a roomy interior and handy pockets for storing all your must-haves (*cough* snacks *cough*). Stitching along the edges gives this one a '70s feel we love.
  • Made of semi vegetable-tanned Italian vachetta leather that burnishes with wear into a beautiful patina.
  • Please note: As it is made of a natural material, each bag varies slightly in texture and color.
  • Zip closure.
  • Outer front pocket, inside pocket.
  • 17 3/4" shoulder strap.
  • 8 3/4"H x 11 3/4"W x 4 3/4"D.
  • Import.
  • only.

The Montreal Satchel Bag

The Montreal Satchel Bag is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Practical and Pretty So I own seven Madewell bags (<3!) and this one is definitely top two. It's not large enough to carry a laptop but definitely sizeable for a wallet, iPad and book, my minimum requirements. I ordered the blush and it's a bit more pink than the photo lets on, but so pretty. Also the strap is not removable and has holes all the way up, which I'm not super thrilled about. But overall, definitely happy with the purchase! I especially appreciate the outside pocket to toss my phone and keys in. It's obviously well-made and I'm sure it will age well. I just don't get why it has handles and a strap if the strap isn't removable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Montreal Satchel bag At first I had to get used to the size. The purse I was using before was bigger and I jammed everything into it! Now I have adjusted and I love that I can carry it by its handles or wear it across my body or shoulder. There are times you need both hands and this purse has become my favorite!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EEEEE!!!!! EXCELLENT BAG!!! THIS is one of those bags where you just have to go EEEEEE!!!! when you open the package! NO KIDDING!!! from the zipper on top!!! oh yeaaa!!!! to the many little compartments inside!! the leather is heavenly! can you say oh the smell!!! I love the smell of fine leather! It's just a winner. Nothing is second rate! I love how stiff it is!! and that it needs to be "broken in". I love that! I'm hard on purses! I don't know if the rest of the world is. But I sort of put them down in places I shouldn't! and I also stuff them with makeup and medications and brushes and combs and oh who knows what? and I love a bag that isn't too deep! this bag is not too deep! Not too large so it's not too heavy! I don't know how Madewell does it honestly! But they have found the right combination in a hand bag! I also bought the pink one and the Sherpa one to go with my coat! Same sizes! The size is great. NOT to small, not too large!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great quality but the color is off Super great quality and stylish (though the holes on the strap bother me a little bit). The inside of the bag is spacious, could be my new everyday bag! The only problem is the color. I bought this bag in english saddle, however, it comes more likely a cider color. I would say it is completely different from the picture Madewell shows on this page so a little disappointed. But I'm find with that because of the great leather material it is. Overall, I recommend this product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Old school doctor bag I was jazzed to see this bag. I read the measurements and thought my petite frame could handle it. What I didn't realize is the bags I carry are of the slouchy variety. So even though I carry a bag now with the same dimensions the slouch makes it look smaller. This bag is a lovely bag but structured. You get every inch of the bag showing from top to bottom, left to right. It looked disproportionate hanging off my shoulder. I bought the black color and I felt like I was carrying an old school doctor bag. Sadly it went back.
