Rated 5 out of 5 by lisas156 Looks and packs smart
I love a bag that holds lots of stuff, but isn't so big that I can't find what I'm looking for. That's the Eaton bag! It fits everything I need (including a mini-tablet), but isn't too heavy. It is small enough that you aren't digging around for the contents. It looks good too. A big thumbs up on this bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JessRP Great and Diverse Use Bag
I love this bag! I recently bought it to use as a camera bag and it fits my Canon G15 camera perfectly, the charger, extra SD cards, cleaning cloth, and extra cords with more space to spare! The strap is adjustable, which is nice when walking around and traveling. Also, this bag is lined on the inside so I know none of my belongings are getting scratched up! Great bag; durable and fashionable!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gaby77 Solid Bag
I have been lusting after this bag for a while and I love it. The strap is a couple inches too short so for someone as tall as me it looks a tad awkward. Also because it is completely made out of a soft leather the structure of it is plyable and thus prone to changing shape when at your hip or placed on a chair. But it is exactly as pictured and fits practically everything. I can fit a 6' by 9' book into it with room for a phone, small makeup travel bag and a wallet, charger, earphones with wiggle room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by amylsl Great for biking
My husband got this for me to take on long bike rides through the city. I absolutely love it! The shorter strap is actually good for this purpose since it doesn't hit your knees as you pedal. Also, I love it's small size that magically fits tons of stuff! The two large compartments easily carry all my essentials and more! The matte leather looks great in contrast to the brown straps and accents. I've used it as my everyday bag since I received it - great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by true has a alot of room
I love this bag! The look, the feel, and style. And it is quite roomy. As a small business owner, I have alot to carry-all the time. But this bag works well along side my brief case. People always give the bag a good look when I am out and about. They want to know who makes it. I have a crazy amount of bags-but this is my new favorite. if I could make one tiny change- the shoulder strap would be a bit more comfortable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Marcelene Nice, Compact Bag But Clasp Is Coming Off
I like this bag. It's cute, small, and functional; however, one of the clasps that holds the shoulder strap to the bag was faulty from the beginning and now no longer twists tightly closed. Now, every so often it'll undo itself when I put it on. I'm disappointed, since this is my first purchase on Madewell, and will probably try to exchange it for a new bag.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Amelia42 Beautiful but faulty
I want to love this bag so much but it keeps breaking on me. Although it is beautiful and is otherwise amazing quality the strap on it seems very unreliable. When I first got it on of the hooks on the clasp would not spin shut at all so I returned it and got a new one. I have had it for a month now and the clasp has broken again. I can get it to spin shut but it only stays in place for about a day before it comes undone and then the purse falls off which is inconvenient. I will probably end up supergluing it because I don't want to return it now but it is a pain for such an expensive bag to be so unreliable.

Rated 3 out of 5 by VanessaZ Roomy, fashionable bag
Love this bag - black/brown leather allows it to be worn with almost any color and love the compartments and how roomy it is! Exactly as shown. Perfect bag to travel with - can fit a surprisingly large amount of items.
Unfortunately, it is NOT a cross body bag as it lists on its URL - the strap is several inches too short which is a HUGE bummer, especially since it is adjustable, I don't get it. I am only 5'1" tall and it barely hits my hip - looks odd. So if you're looking for a shoulder bag/handle bag that is fashionable & roomy, it's perfect; if looking for a cross body bag, look elsewhere.

Rated 2 out of 5 by StylinOnaDime Material was not what I expected
The leather for the black portion was more of a rough, suede feeling material. Also, the bag seems a bit bulky due to the pocket in the front. I really wanted to love this bag, but the material of the black portion made it look cheap. If it were a pebbled black leather, it would look much better. I had to take it back.

Rated 2 out of 5 by karmehhh Strap too short for crossbody
Ah, I'm so disappointed with this bag. I love the quality of the leather and that it has so many compartments. It's also pretty lightweight for a leather bag so I thought I would be getting so much use out of this. Unfortunately, the longer strap is too short to wear crossbody style and I'm only 5'3". The dress form they use in these pics must be the size of a malnourished child b/c there's no way an adult woman of average size could wear this across the body (unless you love bags all up in your armpit). Since I hate wearing purses on one shoulder, I had to return this.
