I bought three purses, one for me and one for each of my young daughters. I am pleased with the size. Just what I was looking for. I only carry credit cards and my checkbook. This purse has room for both plus extra compartments for cash and receipts. The strap is plenty long to wear across the body and has a slider that allows for shortening the strap. I tuck the extra strap in the back compartment so it isn't flopping around. They seem to be made well but aren't exactly square and all three purses were slightly different sizes. The zippers work smoothly. They are made of soft leather and get wear marks pretty easily. I will buy more in the future.
