Rated 5 out of 5 by SteveInDE Pleasantly surprised! After a few years of using a Coach competitor's stylish leather backpack, I decided to give my back and shoulders a rest and go with a messenger-style bag. I'm tired of swinging off my backpack from my shoulder to access ANYTHING. The Thompson Transit just landed on my doorstep, and I have a feeling that this will become my new favorite bag. I was concerned about this bag's online appearance as potentially being too feminine and looking like a hobo purse, but soon rest assured that the reality is far different. This bag is much larger in person than it appears online. The bag can hug the curvature of my hip, and I can adjust the shoulder strap to raise the bag to beneath my armpit (what a lovely thought). The side handle is great; sometimes I need to manhandle my bag down a train aisle or through a crowded store, and this is perfect for that task. What is not discernible from the online photos is that there is actually a zippered size pocket on BOTH sides of this bag, making it simple for the wearer to open, reach in and extract whatever is important (wallet, subway card, keys, etc.) without having to access the main compartment. These zippered side compartments are deep. The main compartment is huge; I can easily see this swallowing a few books, electronic gear, a sweater, water bottle, small umbrella, etc. Perfect for a day trip to NYC. I have always said that if Coach could make "my" Crosby leather duffle (a HUGE bag itself and since discontinued) in a smaller version, I would buy it. Look no further: here it is. I'm contemplating another purchase in brown. Great bag. Guys can pull this off without the bag's gender confusion on some of the other Coach products or being called a murse. March 14, 2014
Hand-assembled in lightweight and durable cowhide and finished with an edgy exposed zipper, this casual yet stylish design holds all the day’s essentials. It has a zip-top closure for security, and the strap can be attached at different points on the bag to convert it from a shoulder style to a crossbody.
