Used this bag for the first time today and it took about 10 mins to get my first compliment! It's so cute and fits everything I need. I love days when I can take a break from toting around my bigger bag full of things I rarely use. The hardest part was trying to decide on which color to get. I'll probably end up getting one or two more to match my clothes!

I reallly like this "fanny pack." I recently used it when traveling and it came in handy. I also used it as a sling bag, crossbody. I got the firecracker color and it is very bright (which I wanted). It is comfortable to wear around my waist or over my shoulder.

This was my first time buying a Sherpani bag, and I'm pretty happy with that choice! The bag is a great size -- not too big and not too little. I've walked around a lot with it and luckily haven't found it to be too heavy with my wallet, a bottle of water, my Fuji cam, and some other little things. Upon first glance, I fell in love with all of the details: the feel of the large zipper on the side, the many pockets and storage compartments, the small pouch and ID holder, and the contrast between the slate-colored wool and black leather (I'm assuming). I use the crossbody strap 95% of the time, and the other times, the shorter strap is useful when I just need to pick it up quickly. I guess I should have read the description more carefully, but I didn't realize that the bag doesn't have a zip closure, only a hook, making it a bit tote-like. One thing that I've found is that at times the short strap gets in the way of the opening, so when I need to put in a larger item, I need to use make sure I'm holding the strap aside to put in my item. I've only had it for a month, so I'm curious how the wool will look in a year or two, but for now it's my go-to bag.
Originally I bought this to use inside of a new purse -- to protect the light interior. It's nice and roomy inside with a separator and the outside zipper is nice to grab something you don't want to dig for. After using it for awhile, I've decided that I'll probably use it for travel instead. So I bought the Baggallini Vienna Case for my purse. That's a bit smaller and works better for my purse.
