This bag is made from leather that has the right thickness and appears to be long-lasting and durable. While the tote felt heavy and not too heavy when it was filled with my stuff, Crossbody straps that come with the tote are too narrow. Although it is elegant, the strap won’t work well with heavy items.
Overall, I like this crossbody bag by Portland Leather Goods. A point was reached when I decided to purchase another grey one from Portland Leather Goods during their Deal of the Weekly sale. All I now need is good weather, so all my PLG bags can be put to good use.
And I love that I can wear it as a Crossbody and be hands-free when I’m shopping. The color is gorgeous and the quality is great. Only thing I would add is a pocket inside. Something for small items like Chapstick. That way I wouldn’t have to dig at the bottom of my purse for that little item.
The first sense stimulated was the smell of leather that wafted from the shipping box once it was opened. The feel was smooth and soft, like that of a great shave. There are two pull handles, one for each end of the zipper to help with closure. What sets Portland Leather Goods Dopp kit apart from many other companies is their customization. One important bag would certainly be the Dopp kit. Named after Charles Doppelt who took credit for centralizing one’s entire toiletry needs, this bag can store every wet shaving device a traveling cyclist needs.
Exactly what I needed to downsize for an upcoming trip.
The work environment is pegged as “cool” and “casual” internally when in reality there is a severe lack of sensitivity that borders on offensive. I cannot fathom working for a more disorganized, apathetic or chaotic company than this one, so please, run for the hills. They call it “almost perfect” but it’s perfect to me! Beautiful rich color, soft leather and fits everything I need. Nothing compares to a well made leather bag or wallet.
Because I was distracted by so many other things, I didn’t move the bag for a few days, and the near bottom part of the bag it started to develop a fold. I should have stuffed the bag and stored it properly to avoid that; at least, I could still correct the shape before it turned into permanent distortion. It is the perfect size, not too big but big enough to add extras when needed. I bought the sunflower and the color is beautiful! I have already gotten a few compliments on it.
So the size of this one is 6 by 4 inches the outside or 15.5 by 10 centimeters, and then you so paper. The notebook is that the small size is 5.5 by 4 inches or 14 by 10 centimeters. It’s just a smaller size and, as I said, you can customize those journals.
