Rated 4 out of 5 by FaninLA Very nice bag...almost perfect...
Overall I'm fairly satisfied with this bag although there are four areas that I think could use improvement:
1. the two zippers on the main compartment should be the larger ones like on the outside pocket rather than the finer zippers...they don't open and close as smoothly, and are almost impossible to open and close using just one hand.
2. the inner pocket should be deeper.....it falls 2-3" short of the bottom of the bag and so sometime the bag bunches funny depending on what you put into the pocket
3. the inner pocket should have a zipper or snap so that you can store valuables, or better yet a smaller second pocket should be added and have a zipper. As it is, there really is no safe place to carry valuables...can't carry in the outside zipper pocket as that zips open easily (especially as it zips down to open) and anything put inside the main compartment or inner pocket gets jostled around. There is nowhere to put a cell phone or keys so that it is easily accessible and still relative safe.
4. a D-ring or a quick release inside the bag is needed. A subtle ring that would allow me to attach a small carabiner and attach keys. Even my Samsonite backpack has a quick release mount for keys
Other than the above it's a great bag, although I wouldn't mind if it was a slight tad deeper (1-1.5") to carry a water bottle AND an iPad.

Rated 4 out of 5 by HonoluluCoachLuvr808 Nice Day Bag...but
Bag is visually beautiful, and softens up quickly with use. Enough space to carry whatever I need for the office or a walkabout around town. However there are a couple of detail points that I think Coach needs to consider with their sudden surge of popularity in the Asian market and rapid growth for investors. The zipper problem that people have mentioned dates back almost a year in the reviews and apparently has not been addressed. The zipper can be a handful literally. I have also noticed that, not only on this particular item but on a number of new purchases from Coach a decided lack of durability on their cotton shoulder straps. These may seem minor points, but it will make a big difference to a person who owns the item and uses it daily.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Cobalt After 6 months, finally decided to take the plunge
After 6 months of looking for a day bag, I finally decided on the sling. I purchased the filed bag, but decided the sling would be a better style bag for me. I carry more than can fit in my pockets or that is comfortable to carry in my pockets. I wanted something I could carry my journal, hand sanitizer, hand lotion and lip balm, wallet, ipod, and phone. I think this bag will be great for what I need. I do agree with the comment about the zipper, I am hoping as I use the bag, it will soften up some.
