The Marfa Saddlebag

The Marfa Saddlebag is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for petite frames I wanted to add a review in response to the critical reviews. I'm 5'2 and think the length is perfect- cross body too. the button is hard to button when the purse is completely empty but when filled with wallet, keys and phone, just close it against the flat surface of wallet and its not at all difficult to lock in. Overall, highest recommendations: beautiful; simple; elegant. will be using for a long time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Minimalist beauty I really like this bag. It's extremely simple, so certainly not for everybody, but it was just the size and style I was looking for. The leather is beautiful – firmer than my Lafayette Bucket Bag or Transport Tote, so I can tell even as I use this bag into oblivion it will really keep its shape. There is only one small pocket – it fits my sunglasses, chapstick, and phone. In addition to those, this purse holds my wallet, a makeup bag, and... that's about it! It is smaller than I expected, but it isn't heavy and the tab close is elegant and easy to use. My major complaint: I have no idea how to keep this thing on my shoulder. Even on the last hole it's a bit awkwardly short on me (and I'm only 5"4) to wear cross-body, but try as I might the thick shoulder strap will not stay on my shoulder. I am hopeful it will get easier as the leather softens.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Doesn't stay closed The button used to close the purse is very difficult to make it stay closed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great, but strap is reaaaalllly short I had been looking for a high quality saddlebag that could be worn crossbody for a couple years, and stumbled across this when there was a pretty significant sale. I had read the other reviews noting the too-short strap, but felt that it would probably be okay, as I am only 5'4". Let me tell you, even for someone vertically challenged like myself, the strap is SHORT. Even on the longest hole, when worn crossbody it still sits at least 2" higher than I would prefer. I ended up keeping the bag because I loved everything else about it (size, shape, great leather, easy to open) and I got it for a great price. However, I would not be surprised if I ended up working a couple more holes into the strap just to get that last inch or two of desperately needed length. So basically, great purse, but don't buy it if you're tall and/or you're planning on wearing it crossbody.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very cute bag! It is a cute bag that goes with my brown Billie booties. I personally do not find the length of the belt to be a big issue. I am 5'4'' and the belt hit right below the hip. Gave it 4 stars because although the leather is very smooth, it scratches easily, especially when being opened and closed. The bag came with small scratches as well. Anyways, I will not care too much about it.
