The Prague Satchel

The Prague Satchel is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just Right It's a perfect size. Not too big or small, but just right. Leather is great quality very soft, and thick. Monogrammed it for perfection, and love that it is stylish. Crossover bag length is perfect - I like it right at the hip. It easily adjusts to your suited length. It will be your everyday, durable bag that you have worn too long because everything just fits in it right. I highly recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love at first sight I fell in love with this bag when I saw it on the spring pre-order list. I waited to see it in person before purchasing. I got it in English Saddle. Buttery soft leather, high quality stitching, and a pocket on the inside large enought to hold my phone and more. A non-regrettable purchase for sure.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stylish and good size purse I like the purse a lot, the leather and the style. Only if is that the opening is a bit stiff so it makes it hard to dig in for stuff. But I do love the leather and the style.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks like your grandma's purse. I purchased this bag dried flax color. Its kind of a beige-ish gray color. The opening at the top is a tad narrow so looking for your phone/keys may not be very easy but its a nice medium sized bag with cute tassel detail on the zippers. My biggest complaint is NO lining....just bare leather. How are you supposed to clean spills or prevent stains??

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Zipper Broke I bought this bag the second I saw it in store. It was totally unplanned, but I just fell in love. The color is great, leather seemed to be a decent quality and the hardware was just right. After I bought it, I read some reviews about the zipper pulls breaking so I was sure to be extra careful when opening/closing this bag. Fast forward a couple of months and maybe 10 or so times using it, one of the zippers came completely off the track and I noticed a lot of loose stitching along the end of the track. Additionally, the leather wears WAY too quickly. I love the look of worn leather, but not after the first wear. I was totally willing to deal with that, but now that it's broken I'm deciding if it's even worth fixing. Either I've just been handed a strand of bad luck or Madewell's quality is plummeting, as this is the third higher priced item I've purchased thats been damaged due to quality issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great casual medium bag Great casual everyday bag. Bought it in english saddle. Scratches very easily, so treated it with a leather protector. It darkened the bag slightly but now it doesn't show scratches/marks because it can just be rubbed out with my fingers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome chic and stylish bag! I was skeptical when reading the review that said its quality wasn't good and the internal was unfinished and so on. So I decided to take a look in person in store. I'm glad I did!! It's such a beautiful bag!! I got it in English saddle, and the color is the typical "Madewell" color! Yes, the leather is not the thickest, but this is exactly what I like about it! The bag is super soft and leather is smooth like your skin. It creates a relaxed feel when it's not full, and it's super lightweight. The strap is the right length. There's no lining inside just the suede leather, but I don't mind it. The stitches are nicely done, and the bag does not look cheap at all! The size is also perfect. I can put my surface 3, and the regular sized note book in it without any problem. Cons are: 1) easy to scratch, but I think it will look nice with aging 2) I wish two handles could be put down nicely when carrying the bag cross body. Definitely recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful purse! It really does look like a quality bag, love the color (saddle). There's no lining on the inside, and mine had a snag within part of the stitching. But other than that, I'm in love with this Madewell bag.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing Update Been waiting for this bag since first seeing it advertised in January, so my expectations were high but, sadly, totally dashed in person! The leather is flimsy, thin, and raw feeling. I was told that the bag was fully lined inside (a la the wonderful Glasgow satchel), but it is not; the interior is just plain and rough leather. Looks very unfinished. The overall quality is extremely cheap, disappointing and not worth the price at all. Design could have been amazing but it looks and feels like a work in progress.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from intuitive style i've yet to pick this beauty up for myself, but spotted it in-store before it made it online. fell in love the minute i saw it. the reason i didn't pick it up straight away? i wanted to wait and see the entire color offering. when in-store, i saw english saddle + burnished orange. there isn't too much of a difference. burnished orange reads as if english saddle just received a nice leather conditioning treatment. i own a variety of products in english, but may go with burnished orange on this cutie. i've had the glasgow for 3 (?) years now + still wear it almost everyday. when considering the longevity of madewell bags, the price is very reasonable! when the prague is on, it melds to your form; which makes it feel intuitive. like a second-skin kind of bag. although i cannot speak of the pros + cons of actually owning her, i wanted to give her a fair shot because she certainly deserves more than a two-star rating! give this one a try––i think she'll be the perfect companion!
