The Manchester Crossbody Bag in Leather

The Manchester Crossbody Bag in Leather is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great every day bag! Love this little bag and have received many compliments on the color and style. Love the vintage inspired look. It's pretty small, keep in mind if you carry more than just your phone/wallet/keys then you might want to consider a larger bag, but for basic necessities it's perfect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Expected quality, unexpected issue This bag is really great--construction, quality of materials, and style are all excellent. I love the 3 1/2 inch depth of the bag which makes it possible for me to carry my phone, sunglasses case, and (theoretically) wallet with ease. The one downside of the bag for me is that my current wallet is slightly too big. The bag is 7 7/8 inches long and my wallet is around 7 1/2 inches. So it does fit, but it takes a bit of finagling to get it in and out. Also because it fits so tightly, it can make it awkward to get at anything else in the bag while the wallet is in. I also wish the crossbody strap were a little longer. At the end of the day it isn't any real problem, but as a curvier woman, a little more length would just be nice. That all being said, I'm keeping the bag and am on the lookout for a slightly smaller wallet. I feel like finding a smaller wallet will be easier than finding a comparably excellent bag.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from super cute but a little small The bag is super cute and feels really nice. My only concern is that its a little smaller than i had been lead to believe and am having a hard time fitting all my stuff inside (and i didnt have a huge purse before). That said i like it enough that have decided to keep it

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Compact but mighty Love my Thai Chili!! It's the perfect size to carry my wallet, phone, keys and a few essential oils and has traveled with me everywhere. It's strap is perfect for crossing over me for no hands shopping and fits nicely in my tote for trips to and from work. The "vintage " camera case look has caught a few eyes and sparked some conversations as well!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Adorable and Functional I love the style of this bag, 70s camera bag. I haven't used it yet, it is just hanging in my entryway until I find the perfect occasion. I am happy with the quality and I like the spot it hits on my hip. Surprisingly roomy inside, I got it monogrammed and I love it. Adorable, basic and perfect for dates.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great size Simple clean style. Love that I can zip it closed and not worry about stuff falling out. Just big enough to fit my necessities!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very cute camera bag I loved the shape and color but the width was just a little too small for me to get my long wallets into the bag. Would have been fine with a shorter wallet but I didn't want to change that.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from AlmostPerfectBag I absolutely fell in love with this bag--shape, style, leather, BUT returned it because the strap was just too short for a crossbody even at its longest length.
