Belize Pocket Tote
cute bag, bad straps
great bag, but straps are heavy and seem to be backwards no matter which way i put them. the bag is really cute, so I'm going to keep, but I will have to get the straps fixed.
Great to look at...
this "tote" cannot carry anything without the straps snapping. The flimsy snap closures on the bag cannot even hold the bag on your shoulder so it's absurd to think you can put anything in it. Considering the large size of the bag and the rugged material you'd think it would be a great bag for the beach or pool. So upset because now I'm going to have to pay someone to replace the snap closure (two of the four snaps broke off in a week). Ironic because I got the bag on a great sale price only to end up paying to fix the straps. Do not buy this bag!
When I received this in the mail, it arrived in a bag, which was kind of weird, but whatever. When I opened it, it looked so AWESOME. I love the pockets SO much, they are to die for. BUT. There are a few things wrong with this. The straps are nice and all, but they don't hold the bag well. The snaps on the sides keep, well, snapping off, and I keep having to fix them throughout the day. I thought that because it was such a large bag that it could pull off a few books, but no. Plus, I couldn't figure out how to convert it into a backpack. Also, the rings on both sides of the bag ripped off from the weight of only a few books. I had to improvise because I love the look of this bag so much. I ended up having to clasp the ends of both straps to a piece (which you can see two of them on the second picture on either sides of the pockets) on the side. It holds well, but wears awkwardly now. I still use it a lot, so I can't say that I'm unhappy, but I am disappointed that it is not as sturdy as it looks.
i love this bag :)
just got this bag in the post, due to the cost of it and shipping i got custom charges because im from the UK which is pretty annoying so it did cost ALOT...HOWEVER...its super nice, unique, and i love how rugged it is, never seen a bag like this before, i love the mixture of the rainbow pockets and the military material, its super snazzy. only thing is..i cant really work out how to turn it into a backpack but i'll have another go haha! anyway...this bag is very cool, the perfect accessory to add to a real edgy unique look, and also its got tonssss of space to put all your bits and bobs in :) i love that no two are the same too, makes it feel more of a one off. :) Thankssss!
This bag is a big disapointment, I am shocked that this company would charge $200.00 It is defintatly not worth the money. It arrived super wrinkled and the straps are an awkward length not adjustable at al. The leather is also stiff and awkward so it is not a comfortable bag to wear. Its super awkard as a back pack and the straps are not long enough to wear cross body either. The canvas is old and there is no structure at all. I have shoulder and neck problems so I was really looking for a cool back pack that would take the pressure of ...but this doesnt do it. It looks great in the pictures but is a bust as far as functionality and comfort go. I have also been shopping on line for years and this is the first time I have had to pay border duty. So on top of the $200 for the bag tack on atleast another $50 if you are in Canada. Sending this bag back to the company is also a bit of a drag and Im pretty sure the border taxes are a loss. I am considering not shopping with this company in the future as I am not happy at all with the quality they offer.
I bought the bag from a retail store, and it resembles the online photo of the bag pretty well. The straps are slightly adjustable (with snaps), and you can unhook them in the back to crisscross them to make this bag into a backpack. The only pockets on the bag are the colorful ones on the outside. This bag is pretty big... bigger than I thought it would be when I saw it online before I saw it in the store. There are no pockets inside, so if you have small things, it might be useful to put them in a smaller bag to hold them. Otherwise you might dig for something little inside the bag for an annoyingly long time. I find his makes me look sketchy. The top of the bag only closes with the offwhite rope tie, so the items inside aren't really totally secure, although the rope can be pulled pretty tight. If you're looking for something highly functional and super secure, this is not the bag for you. If you're looking for something funky, that's versatile and that's going to add some radness to your style, this is a sweet bag.
depends what you are looking for...
This bag is much more rugged looking than appears here. When mine arrived it was deeply wrinkled and I am having a terrible time getting the wrinkles out. Also, the straps are long and not adjustable. The patches here appear rainbow colored, but the patches on mine are 90% dark green on both sides. It's really just ok. I think I will keep it but it is both less functional and less colorful than I expected. Meh?
