I have been using this purse now for several days and have been pleasantly surprised by it. It's large, but I've come to the conclusion that if you want to carry anything besides your gun, you'll need a larger bag that you might be used to. I love the profile of the purse but what really has surprised me is how stable it is on my shoulders. I was worried that it might slip off and be hard to keep on, but I've had no problems. My shoulders are small and get sore easily, but this purse, fully loaded with all my stuff, has not caused any problems. It holds everything I need (and I do carry a lot) plus my glock 42, which I very much appreciate. The leather is gorgeous also. I gave it a four simply because I've had to fight a little with the zippers on the fold over pocket (got to keep them closed tightly to prevent anything falling out!), but otherwise this purse is well worth the money.
