The Marfa Circle Crossbody Bag

The Marfa Circle Crossbody Bag is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Marfa bag Absolutely love this cute bag. It's so chic and the length was perfect for me. I'm 5'2" so I had zero problems. I love the quality and that it's leather and it just puts my whole outfit together. Love it! Great buy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun and simple It was exactly what I hoped for: versatile and roomy enough to use for outings-very cute. Other reviews are right: the strap is short for a crossbody. I'm really short so I liked that I can use it as a shoulder bag. Crossbodies are often way too long. Glad I bought it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Unique bag, but thin leather I really like this bag based off its style and size. On the last notch, it is long enough to be a cross body for me. For reference, I am 5'7, 120 and a 34b. For larger chests, this may not work as well. The leather is quite thin compared to the five other madewell bags I own, and it was shipped from a store with light scratches and no dust bag. This was disappointing. Overall, a great buy, but beware store shipments and the possibility of not receiving a protective dust bag :(

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very close to perfect! I had been eyeing other circle style bags for awhile but hadn't pulled the trigger because they were all very pricey bags so when the madewell option popped up I decided to grab it! I went with the dark orange option though I loved all the colors but I figured if I was going to go for a fun trendy bag it was a good time to experiment with color. The color goes well with my wardrobe and is a great shade of burnt orange. Now for my perfectionist nature to have a couple of little things that I think would have elevated this bag. I would have liked the strap to be longer, I think he proportions were wrong on the length and I'm wearing it on the last hole of the buckle. The other is the zipper, there isn't a lot of space in the opening and they have a big rough zipper right there so your hand gets a little chewed up trying to get in there. I'd suggest the opening start lower on the piece so it can open more. All over a great little bag for a very affordable price.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from LOVE this bag (but it had a short life) I bought this bag in the curry color and it quickly became my go-to. While I absolutely adore the style, look, and feel of it, the stitching began to fall apart after about 1 month. It never endured any strenuous use (I would carry my phone and two cards in it at most- not even a full wallet). I'm conflicted on whether to get another one, I love the look but I'm not enthused about buying another if it'll only last two months again. So for now, I guess I'll spend the money to get the stitching repaired on mine. Aside from the fact that it falls apart fairly quickly, it's the perfect size, the curry color goes with most of my outfits, and the shape is unique and adorable.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bag fell apart I had this bag for less than 2 months and the stitching came apart which was manageable but then the zipper came apart and it is now unusable. The quality of this bag is definitely lacking and I am disappointed because I liked the look of the bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic handbag Super high quality, (soft leather) I get plenty of compliments at work. I bought in curry powder color and had it monogrammed. I can't wait to wear on all of my summer trips! The only prob is; it is meant to be worn on your shoulder because the strap pulls too tight on crossbody mode and the circle tends to loose it's shape (from the top) when worn that way (unless you stuff it full).

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful bag, SHORT strap Would love this bag and many others from Madewell if the straps weren't so short.... I have ordered and returned so many for this reason. Would probably own ALL the bags if the straps weren't just long enough for a 12 year old. Such a bummer because ALL the other elements are there, leather; great, style; great, price; great. UGH Madewell. Just ugh.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Marfa and Transport Tote have the Same Design Problem I lusted for the Madewell Transport tote for a couple of years before i gave and treated my self. Loved the leather, the color, the style, the size. But then there is the strap drop. At 8" if you are short, tiny and not wearing a winter coat, this is a great bag as you can carry it in your hand or over your shoulder. For the rest of us, the straps are too short if you want to put it over your shoulder. Sad. So I tried to console myself with a Marfa bag. It perfectly executes the "cross body bag tucked under my right boob look." Again the strap is too short. Very sad. Hey Madewell, bad design cancels out well made every time. BTW, I found an almost exact copy of the Transport Tote with a proper strap drop and am thrilled. Now on the hunt for a round cross body bag with a reasonable strap length. Not what I wanted to do, but you left me no choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for petites Such a fun shape that you don't see everyday. For me (5'4" & size small clothing), this bag hits at just the right length when worn as a crossbody (buckled on the longest hole). Otherwise I'll shorten it up a couple holes to wear via one-shoulder. I can certainly see how anyone taller than me would be limited to wearing it via one-shoulder only... but for the petite gals, it's a winner. I picked the burnished orange, and it is quickly becoming my favorite bag. I see myself using it throughout all the seasons. It holds a small wallet, small cosmetic case, phone, keys, and sunglasses -- just the necessities.
