The Aurora concealed-carry backpack features a unique teardrop jumbo zipper, which allows easy access to the spacious interior - lots of room for a tablet, too! The shoulder straps are removable, so you can carry it on one shoulder or two.

All purses on the site will have dimensions for the gun compartment. Always allow at least a half inch of clearance at the zipper.
Example: Gun compartment is 8.5” W x 7” H.
If your gun is less than 8" long (end to end) and less than 6.5" tall, it should fit.
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).
Totally love this bag. The only issue I would complain about is that the main zipper opening is not wide enough. The color is beautiful and it is comfortable to wear as a bookbag or sling over a shoulder. I also like the double zipper to the weapon area; this will allow my husband the opportunity to get to my weapon quickly and discreetly if the need arises while it is on my back.
My only complaint is that the main zipper part doesn't open wide enough but otherwise it's fantastic holds everything I need and then some.
This bag is a lot bigger than I am used to, so I don't pack it with too much stuff. As it's like a black hole and I could see it being hard to find what you're looking for. The clasp to close the bag is legit and keeps your items inside secure. However, it's not real convenient to get into the bag for your wallet when it's time to pay.. takes a hot minute. Now for the reason I bought the bag, the concealed carry pocket. It does a great job. I secured my LCR Ruger .357 nicely in the holster, and you can't even feel that it's in there. It stays put, the holster covers the trigger just like it should. Now the only part I am not totally sold on this bag is the ability to draw your weapon in a timely manner should you need to. It's awkward to have it on your back, easy to tangle your straps with your hair, bulky winter coat ect. in the process of getting it off to draw your weapon. This bag isn't meant for a quick draw scenario in my opinion. I do still find that pocket useful however. But if I am going to carry I will continue to do so on my person, although some situations like at the office I can't do that, so I holster my gun instead back into my purse and tuck it into a drawer at my desk that I can lock. Overall this bag is very cute, better than any other concealed carry bag I've ever found. It's functional as a regular purse and will store your weapon safely. But I wouldn't feel 100% confident getting it out, or shooting through my bag in an instant should I need to.
I absolutely love this purse. Its has plenty of room and is very chic looking. I wanted a back pack purse to help distribute the weight of carry a hand gun all the time. I'm so thankful to have found this purse. I get compliments all the time. I was able to switch out the holster from a previous cc purse. I did have to practice a while pulling my gun from the purse. Also, the inside bottom part does not stay at the bottom which I thought was weird. I just removed it and it didn't change anything about the purse.
Bought for my wife who carries a .380. She says it's perfect for the job. Likes the soft leather too.
Love my new CC backpack, roomy and chic looking. Speedy delivery also
My husband bought this for me for Christmas and I love the bag, but the universal holster was not executed well. I carry a Glock 43 and no matter how well I wrap it, it's too heavy for the velcro. Kind of defeats the purpose.
