Sophia is a saddle-bag style crossbody made with genuine, vegetable-tanned leather. The leather is waxed, oiled, buffed and polished, enhancing the natural grain and surface. You'll love how it feels and smells! And with time and handling, the leather evolves to a naturally burnished patina, enhancing its character and beauty.
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).
This purse is gorgeous! The color is less yellow than online photos, which I like. The leather and construction are top-notch.
Would you believe I’m able to fit a tiny water bottle, notebook, pen, diaper, hand sanitizer, hand lotion, granola bar, small towel, my wallet, my keys, my phone, and a 9mm pistol in this small purse? Believe it! It definitely hangs a little back heavy because of the pistol but it’s met my expectations brilliantly. Please note also that the “mustard” is much more tan than yellow, but I personally I prefer this color!
