Rated 4 out of 5 by JenL Loved it but quality is an issue ...
I purchased this bag in neon pink and neon green last year and my first outing with the pink bag, the leather on the strap started to come off. So rather than all smooth pink, there were brown spots. Very disappointing for the price. Otherwise, a lovely bag but I have since been afraid to really use them for fear of further damage.

Old school 1940s, book satchel silhouette, updated in ultra fluorescent color (pink) out of heavy, unlined cowhide. Great cross body bag, albeit with limited storage space- enough for your 13" Macbook and a lipstick. Flat out cool; I totally love it.

I adore Cambridge Satchels so I was ecstatic to get the pink on sale. The pink is BRIGHT. Pictures don't do it justice but on a grey winter day it just glows against the neutral backdrop. Not for the timid of heart but everything I could ask for in such a gorgeous bag.
The bag is a sturdy, stiff leather like all legit Cambridge satchels & will keep its structure although it will soften over time as most leathers do but will NOT get floppy. I recommend upon getting the bag to apply a leather conditioner & reapply once a year depending on your area's weather just to maintain the leather. Keep it happy and it'll keep you happy for years to come.
The only real wear and tear your bag will receive is the buckle straps will get crinkled/wrinkled with frequent opening and closing to get into your bag but this is expected and shouldn't deter you unless you don't like the hassle the extra time it takes to open the straps but after a while you become a pro at it. Promise. :)

This bag is much brighter in real than in the picture. Its BRIGHT BRIGHT. But i love it! Also initially surprised at the size, it is a lot bigger than it looks from the pic. But i got used to it pretty quickly and i really like it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Nance Nice purse but bigger than expected!
The picture of this purse on the J. Crew website doesn't give an accurate idea of the size of the purse. It would've been nice to see it on the shoulder of a model to convey the actual scale. From the picture online, I was expecting the purse to be a lot smaller than it is. When it arrived, I was shocked to see its size. I got it for my daughter-in-law, she'd seen a picture of it online and it was on her "wish list." She also thought it would be much smaller based on the picture she saw online. But after the initial shock of the size wore off, she decided she likes it and is going to keep it. Other than that, it would personally drive me crazy to have to unbuckle two straps to get into my purse. But I didn't buy it for myself, so I guess this is a mixed review!
