The Simple Crossbody Bag

The Simple Crossbody Bag is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great casual bag Big enough for phone, and few essentials, but small enough to just sling over without being too heavy. Free monogramming for Madewell insiders - worth the perk

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute Crossbody in Petal Pink I bought this on a whim at my local Madewell store and I absolutely love it! I love that the leather material is of good quality vachetta that will patina with time. I also love the clean simple lines of the bag. The strap drop is adequate for my petite 5'2" frame. I may be back for another color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic crossbody clutch I took a chance purchasing this bag, as it was described as "pink" online- it is, in fact, a neutral, natural leather color, which will become darker with use. I had a bag of this sort of leather when I was in college and loved it to death, so I am very happy with this acquisition! The size is perfect for wallet, phone, glasses and keys- just the essentials- and the strap may be removed to use it as a clutch. Another Madewell winner!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great little bag I bought this bag to use when I travel mostly, it fits my phone zip pouch wallet and a pair of reading glasses and a lip stick.... that's about all I need, the color of the petal pink is a nice natural leather and the strap is just the right size for cross body.... it also fits nicely in my Med. transport drawstring it's my purse inside a purse that I can take when I don't want to lug the whole bag!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! This is exactly what I was looking for. It's a simple and timeless crossbody bag for when you're on the go and don't need a lot of things. It will be great for summer. The off white color is the perfect shade. I also like that this reminds me of the class Coach purses which Coach doesn't seem to have I'm glad Madewell is filling that gap! And of course you can't beat Madewell service. Must have!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfectly simple This bag is exactly as it’s name states: a simple crossbody bag. The petal pink is the absolutely perfect hue. The leather is high quality and will patina (love a good patina!). It is sturdy and will last a long time. There’s really isn’t much more to say with this one. It’s perfectly simple.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's ok I purchased this bag in the light canvas color (it's an ivory in person). It's a nice bag but I have a feeling that it won't age as well as my transport tote has (which is going on 4+ years of use and looking great). The cross body bag is adjustable, which is nice for a short person like me, but the notches and brass studs make the cross strap kind of bulky on your chest when you wear it. The leather is creasing in strange ways as it wears in which suggests it's made from a cheaper leather than the transport tote. I bought the bag with a gift card. I would probably be more disappointed if I had spent my own money.
