The Berliner Oversized Satchel
Product Details
With its structured but slouchy shape and rich textured leather, this satchel is just so cool—and roomy enough to hold a weekend's worth of stuff. Sling the top handles in the crook of your arm or slip on the detachable shoulder strap. Any way you carry it, this one is a winner (and will be for a long time to come).

The Berliner Oversized Satchel

The Berliner Oversized Satchel is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 38.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous Gray Satchel! I absolutely fell in love with this purse when it came! I have the smaller Berliner satchels in maroon and camel, and the gray on this one was beautiful. It wasn't as huge as I was expecting, which was good. The only issue I had is I wish the gray leather strap had another place to stick the extra strap. It hangs out and is somewhat annoying. Other than that, I love this bag!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My everyday bag, LOVE IT! I absolutely love this bag, the size is just right for my everyday fits a necessaire, my laptop (13''), lunch, a book etc... but if i am just going out on a weekend errand it is not bulky at all. The leather is beautiful and soft, has a few pockets inside which are great for wallet, phone, keys, and the 2 straps add something to this bag: i was not sure about the red in the larger strap but end up being very comfortable when i am carrying the computer and just make the bag a bit more playful. if you have a more formal meeting just fold it in the bag, and the look and feel completely changes!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for traveling I love everything about this bag except I wish that shoulder strip is a little bit wider, cause bag it self quite heavy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice bag! This is a great bag, very comfortable and fits well over your arm with two strap options, one black leather and the other material. The only thing i was a little confused about was is it really leather? I actually can't tell if it is synthetic or leather. It has a bit of a synthetic look to it although it smells like leather. So I will just assume it is because I am loving the bag!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for traveling This is hands-down my go-to bag for traveling. I love that it has compartments inside and is nice and deep... with a zipper! Because of that, this bag will replace my Transport Tote as a carry-on. All I wish is that Madewell would put feet on the bottom of their bags.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Work Travel Bag I've been looking for an alternative to a brief case for quick business trips, and this bag fits the bill. It's a bit on the heavy side, but that's to be expected with a leather bag. That's the only reason for 3 comfort stars. The reason for 4 quality stars is a sticky zipper on the inside pocket, and it needs slightly larger open pockets on the inside (to hold a cell phone more securely). Otherwise, I am very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable to carry especially for such a large bag I love this bag even though I have a couple of Madewell totes, I wanted a large bag with pockets that zipped. The Berliner fit the bill exactly . It's well balanced and easy to carry with the long strap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Commuter Bag I purchased the berliner oversized satchel online after seeing it in the store. It is roomy enough to fit everything I need for my daily commute, but it is not heavy like other leather bags I own and wears comfortably as a cross-body bag. I love the option of using the different straps or carrying it by its handles. The bag is well made and has quickly become one of my favorites. I was so glad I purchased it while it was on sale and I received an additional 30% off during the holiday promotion. I highly recommend this product and would purchase it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bag! I was looking for a smallish satchel I could use as an overnight/weekend bag and this one is perfect - and I managed to get it on sale! It would also work as a large handbag, if you favor larger purses. The leather looks and feels beautiful - it's just a great looking bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go to bag I love this bag! It's roomy enough for my iPad, pumps for work, and anything else I may need for the day. Goes great with just about any outfit and you can carry it in a variety of ways. Quality leather. I bought both the brown and black when it was on sale and I'm glad I did. Well worth the purchase. You will not be disappointed!
