Product Details
What goes into the new drawstring version of our Transport Crossbody? Here it is by the numbers: 2 pieces of fine leather are used for the body. 2 ways to carry: with the top handles or the detachable shoulder strap. 2 for 1: cinch it closed to transform it into a mini bucket bag. 2 interior side pockets—perfect for your phone, train pass, whatever. 4: the number of hours it'll hang with you at a concert. How often you'll reach for this one? 500 gazillion times.

The Small Drawstring Transport Crossbody

The Small Drawstring Transport Crossbody is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 24.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect small bag I love this bag, the leather is high quality and is a perfect small purse. I can fit my wallet, phone, keys, and a 3oz bottle of spray. A great value, especially because I got it on sale.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small and stylish! This bag is pretty tiny, but surprisingly practical. I switched out a messenger by Clare V. for this little guy and am so happy to have made the switch. I can fit my phone, keys, passport, camera (a small point and shoot type slim camera), and 5" x 5" sketchbook in this bad boy as well as smaller miscellaneous items like chapstick, pen, and a pack of tums. The leather is so soft and buttery and the strap is detachable. Overall I think it's so well made (ha) and makes carrying everyday items a breeze.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Need longer strap This bag is everything I've been looking for, something small to carry daily essentials with an easy accessible opening that's not too wide and a zippered pocket. I like that the cross body strap is removable. The only thing I would change is I'd add one more hole to the cross body strap to make it my ideal length. I got the color "english saddle" and I feel like the color online is depicted more reddish, dark-brown than it is in person.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful, small bag This bag is small and won't fit most wallets, so if you know this going in, you're going to love this little guy. The leather is gorgeous and I'm thrilled to pieces with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute small bag Like this bag, it is the same size as the small transport crossbody, but with the drawstring it adds to the style, like an old school style pouch. Recommend if you don't carry a lot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bag This small, classic crossbody is perfect for my day-to-day. I don't carry much with me, and I hate toting around large bags. My only complain is one of the shoulder clasps squeaks a little. I think a little oil will solve the problem. Overall, I love it!
