This slim crossbody is perfect for the minimalist! Ares was created with exceptional leather, using both turn-of-the-century and modern vegetable tanning techniques, resulting in strength, flexibility, and durability. The leather is waxed, oiled, buffed and polished, enhancing the natural grain. With time and handling, you'll see an evolution of a naturally burnished patina to the leather, enhancing its character and beauty.
Strap is reinforced with a cut-resistant metal wire for added security
One large, zippered main compartment has 2 open phone pockets on one side and 1 zipper pocket on the other
Back exterior has pocket with magnetic closure
Front exterior has pocket with magnetic closure and 1 pocket with zipper closure
Genuine cowhide leather
Gun compartment has ambidextrous zippered access from the back of the bag
A universal holster is included
Velcro lined on one side - Opposite side of gun compartment if gun compartment is against your body
Bag Dimensions: 11" x 10" x 2" - it's a very slim bag. Roomy enough for the essentials and smaller guns. If your gun is bulky or bigger, and you need to carry a bunch of other stuff, a different style would be best for you.
The nylon/elastic purse holsters that most manufacturers include with the bags are a place to start, but they will not be a good fit for many guns.
Your gun won't "snap in" - these holsters have zero retention. If you tip the holster upside down, the gun will slip out. We strongly recommend getting a kydex purse holster that's molded for your specific gun model, with snap-in retention.
You'll get several loose adhesive velcro sheets with it, so you can attach it however you prefer inside your bag (or any surface).
This bag is definitely a quality purse. It does not look like a CC purse in disguise, it just looks like a nice purse. The color is good, the straps are adjustable for shoulder carry or crossbody. I’m very satisfied with this purchase!

This is really comfortable to wear. The straps are wide, so they don’t dig in or shift. I don’t carry off body, but use this for times when I have to take my gun off, like using a public restroom or trying on clothes, for a safe storage solution. It’s the perfect size and a great vintage style with quality materials and craftsmanship.

This is by far my best conceal carry purse. Fits my Sig p365 perfectly. Purse is well made and roomy. Love it!
Super impressed with the quality, packaging and features of this bag. Stylish and classic. The leather is smooth and thick, but soft. Lots of compartments to organize and a great, thick comfortable strap. The conceal carry compartment is subtly hidden in back, with an easy reach access for both left and right-handed gals. Comfortably fits my Sig P238. Customer service has been prompt and personal. I rarely find a regular handbag this nice, so I guess I needed to get my conceal carry a long time ago!
Love it perfect. For the minimalist

I've always used crossbody bags, so I was really excited about a concealed carry option. The bag is a bit smaller than I expected, but some of that I believe is the new leather being a little stiff/tight. I really like the bag, it fits my Glock 42 perfectly. The bag is really well made, has a lot of pockets for organization, and looks really good (I have had several comments from people, even complete strangers). Definitely a good purchase.
