Everyone is probably at least somewhat familiar with this bag from a few years ago when they first came out. I've had this one for a couple of years. It is not an everyday bag for me for a couple of reasons. One being the light brown vegetable tanned leather - it can stain (but also develop a really nice patina on the other hand) and two the open bucket is not as practical because closing it with the ties can get to be an annoyance after awhile so I end up leaving it open most of the time (so my stuff is not as secure). The bag can be quite stiff at first too. Overall though I treat it like a tote bag. Good for some things, not for others. I love this color combo and the although it says mini it is definitely roomy. It comes with a handy wristlet for small items.
