Product Details
The kind of take-everywhere-stash-everything leather crossbody you'll want in every color (and, at this sweet price, why not?). Because we're all about the details, we outfitted this one with a sleek adjustable strap and a zipper pull that can handle a bag accessory (or two).
  • Made of semi vegetable-tanned leather with a softly worn waxed finish that deepens into a distinctive patina.
  • Please note: As it is made of a natural material, each bag varies slightly in texture and color.
  • Zip closure.
  • Interior pocket.
  • 21 5/8" shoulder strap.
  • 6 5/16"H x 9 7/16"W x 1 3/4"D.
  • Import.

The Simple Crossbody Bag

The Simple Crossbody Bag is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from More than a crossbody, it's also a clutch! I bought this bag a few days after Christmas at a Madewell store. I could not be happier with it! The quality is excellent. The leather is alittle stiff but I like a bag with structure. It's the perfect size to carry essentials, the strap is comfortable to wear across my chest or on my shoulder. Best thing is that you can actually remove the strap and use the bag as a clutch! This makes a perfect travelling bag for me. Well done Madewell!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this little bag, ideal for shorter people I can see why this bag is in high demand. It's a classic shape, good size (small without being TOO small) and it's a nice quality leather for the price. I got in saddle and I love it, will be great for travel especially. Super versatile. However while the strap is adjustable, it still manages to be a little too short to wear it crossbody. I'm 5'5 and it just barely works for me and that's on the last two pegs. Wearing on the shoulder is perfect, but it IS billed as a crossbody bag so it should have a slightly longer strap. If you're on the taller side, you might want to try it before buying.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from too short strap - broke my heart! A longtime fan of the transport satchel, I've been waiting for this bag from Madewell - natural looking leather, minimal hardware, just big enough for phone, wallet, keys - to wear crossbody style. This was so close to perfect! But alas the strap was too short for me - I'm 5'7"-ish and have hips (39"-40"?) and this bag sat at such a weird place at the top-middle of my hip, like a fanny pack, that I just couldn't keep it - I felt it just looked too unflattering. Which is not something I would expect to say about a purse! The small size of the bag, at the place it lay on my body, just seemed to accentuate my hips in a not-good way. But if you're shorter, or more slim hipped - or maybe not strangely fixated on how big your hips look - then go for it! It is a beautiful little bag, so sorry it didn't work out for me.
